Three For Saturday 4th August

This is St John the Baptist's Church in Hove on the south coast of England. It was built between 1852 and 1854 so is relatively new compared to some of the other churches within the Brighton & Hove area. Because it is nationally important and of special interest t has been given Grade II status. On this particular occasion I was walking back to Brighton after an evening in a pub/bar and grabbing a few images on the way to make the walk/stagger more interesting.

These are huge boulders and rocks that have been placed on the beach at Ovingdean Gap (Sussex, England) in order to act as breakwaters and hopefully hold back the sea from bringing most of the cliffs down. A huge amount of the Sussex coast is cliff face and it's vital that we try to protect the fragile chalk underbelly that we have built our villages, towns and cities on.

I wasn't actually out to photograph anything like this at the time. I was in the car and driving out to the the village of Lewes (Sussex, England) for a spot of night photography when I spotted the sun, low in the sky casting a golden brown light on the cut corn. I pulled into a dirt track and ran back up the road to grab the shot.
