Seaweed & Pebbles, Storm Light and Rainbow Rays

Seaweed & Pebbles :- Late afternoon / early evening on Rottingdean beach. The day trippers had departed and the place was mine to explore without fear oif interuption. I'm not quite sure why this caught my eye at the time (I can't remember as it was shot back in February 2013) but I am guessing it had something to do with the way the pebbles seemed to frame the seaweed as it lay on the sand. The dying sunlight was perfect.



Storm Light :- I've been told off before for using "Apocalyptic" to describe something but there are times when it's the only word that really sums up the image or feeling at the time. Obviously we're still all here so it wasn't 'apocalyptic' at all but I think that word suits this beach scene very well. It was shot last week (4th Sept 2015) on the beach at Saltdean on the south coast of England. The bright sunlight breaking through the heavy clouds in the distance was keeping the residents of Worthing warm 17 kilometeres (11 miles) to the West.



Rainbow Rays :- Patches of snow hang around the base of an old tree stump as light splits through the trees of Stanmer Park. The park was once the estate of Stanmer House which is a Grade I listed mansion built in 1722. Stanmer Park itself is listed at Grade II level on the Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest by English Heritage. The center of the park is well landscaped with large open spaces and magnificent trees but if you wander up some of the dirt tracks that wind their way around and through the park you find yourself in dense wooded areas. The ppark is (approx) 6.25 kilometers or 3.5 miles from the center of Brighton.
