photoblog image Brighton

Brighton

Over the summer I was able to go down to Brighton and enjoy an intensely hot day at the beach, drink refreshing Pimm's, and just relax by the water. Its very cold right now, both here in Chicago and back in the UK, so hopefully these shots the next few days will bring a nice reminder that the winter will be short-lived.

 

EDIT: I should have mentioned, that couple in the middle of the pier is the same couple I featured in this shot. Both images were taken from the same spot.

Yes, it is just four more months and the snow should start to melt tongue

Interesting wall that looks like crocadile skin.
Yes it reminds us there should be some warmth about in a while Charles.
A beautiful warm scene Charles.

I was surprised to see your temperatures in Chicago, Charles, I was expecting it to be colder. Brighton will soon be like this is just a few months.

Invigorating, this photo!
Oh may what stunning pir, the water is so Lucius green and the tile or bricks are so exotic, love this shot.))))
Brighton - been there one summer many years ago, can still remember the lazy feel of the city. Wonderful smile
Beautiful compo! This is a very find day for outdoor activity! The sea has so real color and the beach has a special and different earth color! Vote!

nice light and I like the color of the water.
What a brilliant shot! The almost golden sand at the upper right and the perfectly green water are so striking.

Eye-catching textures captured in the retaining wall. "Winter will be short-lived?" It's only just begun. smile It's been a while since we've had a blizzard. ;-)
I really like this shot, Charles. Good composition, interesting detals and good colors ... I would probably change the colors a bit on the people. All the color tweaking has left them a bit pinkish flourescent
Great colors!
