These photograph show one of the giant pipes that have led to a major recovery operation off the Norfolk coast.
The plastic bore pipe was exposed at the beach at Waxham and follows similar sightings in the east coast area.
It was photographed by Amy Mann, who was out walking her dog.
The pipe is one of several that came free when they were under tow off the East Anglian coast destined for Algeria.
The Maritime and Coastguard Agency says all of the loose pipes have been brought under control, with some re-attached to towing vessels and others anchored just off shore attended by guard vessels.

The Coastguard say they pose no danger and will be relocated offshore north of Lowestoft ahead of towing them back to Norway, where they were manufactured.
Other sightings of the giant pipes have been made in the Horsey and Sea Palling areas.
