Tide Mills is a derelict village in East Sussex, between Newhaven and Seaford, on Seaford bay (above). There was a small archaeology group excavating on the day I visited and there is also the remains of a WW1 Sea Plane base.
The “Station Masters House”.
What I assume is a Helicopter landing pad on the site of the old Seaplane base.
The pier to east of the entrance to the port of Newhaven.
There is a lot of birdlife in the scrub around the villages remains and this female Serin was flying up and down amongst it long enough for me to change lens.
Hurrying towards City Thameslink to catch a train home I walked around St Paul’s cathedral grounds, attempting to capture some non-touristy images.
There is a statue recently placed on the steps to St Paul’s, Mark Wallinger’s ‘Ecce Homo’, which is fantastically lifelike. At first I thought it was a “living statue” and I even saw some tourists putting there arms around it for pictures!
This one would have benefited from being a bit more horizontal, I seemed to have developed a 20 degree list, but the principle was good.
The club has invited members to submit images for the web site showcase pages and as I happened to be in the City (Westminster, central London) and lacked images to enter in the “people” or “urban” categories so I took my camera.
Above the town of Alfriston, Sussex, on the South Downs is the Church of the Good Shepherd. I attempted an early morning visit, parked in a lay-by on the Lullington Road and hiked up the South Downs Way in a chill breeze.
The church stands on a small rise in a small churchyard with few graves.
Leaving the grounds of the church I wandered up along the South Downs way again, the wind was keeping the clouds moving quite quickly and so the colour of the immature crops was changing constantly.
I had parked near one of the streams that forms the drainage system for the farmland in the flood plain.
Rampion Wind Farm is an offshore wind farm under construction off the Sussex coast and easily visible from Brighton. The day being clear and sunny I tried my “long” (it’s only a 250) lense, to see if I could get any good images. The featured image above shows completed turbines (well at least with blades), below are those still in progress.
Whilst I was taking these the clouds were passing quickly overhead and briefly in the Shoreham direction the beach seemed to go black.
It is very difficult to leave the beach, if you have your camera, without taking a picture of the i360.
The Brighton and Hove Camera Club organised a “treasure hunt” through Brighton this weekend. In teams of up to four photographers, answer six questions and take pictures based loosely on the answers. The results is an eclectic mix of often “very Brighton” street photography.
Near Sydney Street there were the most number of shoes thrown over overhead wires I’ve ever seen in one place.
The only one of my images which made it through to our final six, a line of Hen’s on a cycling party.
This last one probably a first for me, as I had to ask him if it was okay rather than steal the shot from a distance, the gentleman taking an “f for fag break”.
