Evening view of the shingle beach at Brighton, East Sussex, England.
An hour or two before sundown. I wanted people to walk along the beach and jump up and down creating nice silhouetted shapes against the evening sky…but, alas they were too busy relaxing! Although there was one man with a metal detector continuously going up and down the beach sweeping his metal detector over places that had recently been vacated in the hope of some dropped coins……but he was nowhere to be seen….He’d made his money, perhaps?
West Pier is a Victorian era pier that burnt down leaving the empty shell that now sits rusting just off the shoreline. It is probably the most photographed structure in Brighton, and so with camera in hand I thought I’d better record my interpretation too.
