January Blues

January Blues

This is a photo I took last year in Brighton while I had time to kill in the morning before an appointment. I had a wander around the town and especially The Laines before ending up on the pier. I think it was the first time I had been on Brighton Pier when it was absolutely deserted, there wasn’t a tourist in sight. The weather was extremely calm for January and I got this photo of the deserted pier with the calm sea and the Rampion windfarm on the horizon.

A view from January of a calm sea off the Palace Pier in Brighton with the Rampion Windfarm visible in the distance.
Rustington Sunset

Rustington Sunset

The Sun sets into the sea off of Rustington Beach in West Sussex. The Sun is reflected in the wet sand of the beach leaving a path leading the eye up to the sun..

This is a shot from last year of a sunset which caught my eye while I was walking along the sea front at Rustington in West Sussex. I was hoping for the birds on the beach to fly away and leave a lovely clean beach, unfortunately they didn’t so I think the beach looks a little cluttered. There are a few things I do love about this photo, like the ripple effect in the sand which mimics the sea, and the way the colours of the sky are reflected in the wet sand showing the path of the sun leading the eye through the photo.
