These pics are amazing, Ian! I see a fellow-photographer in the love of capturing the dramas of the storms on the edge of shores and the sea!
Hi you are certainly right, I love walking the coast. Lighting, clouds and the sea can change so rapidly and best of all the solitude. We have some beautiful areas around the Welsh Coastline. I find I do most of my photography in the autumn, winter and spring, I find the low lighting and dramatic conditions are beautiful at those times of year. The Brighton ones were take over two days, the second day had 70/80 mph winds and caused part of the pier structure to collapse, there was a good chance that at high tide the rest would go so I thought it was worth a few hours of rain, cold and salty seaspray for the chance to take some dramatic pictures, as per usual with my luck it didn’t go, in a way I was quite pleased it didn’t collapse I have grown to like it over the years. The one picture I like is the one of the lady all in black, it was quite strange she turned up when she did. All the best, Ian.
Welsh coastline, another place I have to see! The storms truly have wrecked havoc on the coastal towns in Ireland too. Particularly Lahinch. If you google George Karbus, you’ll see some crazy waves hitting the town… and photographers loves it! 🙂 I can’t really say which of yours that I like more than the other. There’s something in all of them, the light/rays through the clouds etc. However, the woman is something that creates more of a story and makes one curious. Have a good day, Ian.
The power of water; these are awe-striking images. Brighton beach is a special place anyway, and you’ve captured it so dramatically.
Hi thanks for the comment. I spent a few days in Brighton and the weather was terrible, 70 mph winds and rain. The up side of it was the conditions changed rapidly so the picture opportunities were fantastic, most of the time I was soaking wet and frozen, the camera was covered in salty sea spray but luckily the rain washed it off (positive point). Part of the pier was destroyed and everyone was waiting for the rest to collapse but it was still standing when I left, quite glad in a way as I quite like the tangled structure. Ian.
Yes, the pier remnants are interesting. I remember when there was more of it there, and the starlings used to put in a twilight performance flocking there. Someone torched it unfortunately, or at least I think that’s the story. It’s good that it still making its presence felt, and esp. in your shot.
Wow, amazing shots! Such life in the images. So hard not to feel inspired with this weather. In case you haven’t seen yet I’ve had a little make over and changed my blog. You can now find me at WildFamilyFun.co.uk different look but same ideas of life in the outdoors. Would love for you to have a look and follow. Keep sharing your beautiful photographs!
amazing images, you’ve captured the power of raging waters in so many ways… love the dramatic light in image No. 10… great set!!
Thank-you for your kind comment. It was a dramatic few days, the weather was incredible and was changing by the minute. The picture you mentioned was taken along the promenade, the light area in the distance was foam from the waves drifting in the high winds but it seems to add a lot of depth to the image. Ian.
