When the weather is wrong it’s actually right…

Brighton Pier

Brighton Pier

For me, I love taking landscapes in unusual weather conditions. Living by the sea means that we get a lot of sea frets. One minute its sunny the next you can’t see more than 50 feet… perfect time to take out your camera. I have been wanting a shot of the pier for a few years, but didn’t want the cliched sunset photos, or starlings swarming over the roof and I had been waiting for this fret for a while. I went down to the front with my tripod and camera a this shot was amongst the first i took. There were a few people about on the pier and seagulls in the sea, but i removed all signs of life, I just thought it was more in keeping with the fogs surrounding it, ghostly and deserted. But all in all, it was pretty much as is. One of my favourite landscapes I’ve taken and a good memento from my time living in Brighton.
