Beach Bar, Vast Woodland & a Yellow Carpet

"Roll Up Roll Up" :- Down on Brighton seafront along the lower promenade there are many bars. When the sun is out they are jam packed with tourists and locals spilling out onto beach whilst trying to make the most of the decent weather. I caught this bar just as it was opening up (around 11:25 am) on a Saturday morning and preparing for the deluge of weekend drinkers and revelers. I loved the look of the wood and the "Roll Up" signs lit up and the fact that the bar was devoid of customers so i asked if I could take a shot and they very kindly let me. If you are ever in the area and want to find it the bar is "Brighton Music Hall", King’s Road Arches, Brighton, England.

"The Forest" :- This is a shot looking towards the East from "High & Over" on the Alfriston Rd near the town of Seaford in Sussex, England. I wish I could do "Friston Forest" justice but it's simply too big to get it all in one image. as the Forest itself  is 3,000 acres of dense woodland. At the bottom of the image you can see the River Cuckmere winding it's way down through the estuary and towards the English Channel.

"Buttercups & Daisies" :- Stanmer Park can be found along the Lewes Road just on the outskirts of Brighton, England. It was created in the 18th century by the Pelham family. It was owned by the family for 230 years up until 1947 when Brighton Corporation bought the estate. This shot was taken at the back of the park behind Stanmer Manor House. The trees are grand, aged and tall and probably have a few stories to tell if you could understand the language "tree". This wonderful carpet of  Buttercups & Daisies caught my attention and breath.
