Rusty beach wires

I took this shot on a slightly overcast day in Monterey, California. This was a wire fence overlooking the beautiful Monterey Bay with the beach and some boulders in the foreground.
I included the wires because they seemed to seperate the image into sections and because you can see the effect of the salt water as it rusts each of the wires differently.
From this point, you can see otters rolling around in the surf and usually there are seals on the nearby rocks. This photo reminds me of that natural beauty of the bay every time I see it.

Thanks for the comments.
I cropped out some distracting elements on the side.

I like this photo, it gives me a feeling of separation or of being kept apart from the beauty of nature
