Tranquility, Trees & Tourism (Lacking)

"The Row Boat" :- Another example of me setting up for a shot and then being "photo bombed". I loved the light on the water. Thought the entire scene looked tranquil and serene...and then someone decided to row out and disrupt the tranquility of it all. I then realised that they actually added to the shot and the scene so shot it anyway. Now looking at the image it dawns on me that their position in the little rowing boat was perfect.

"Reaching Out" :- 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 "tree" language. This fine tree is being taken over by highly overgrown ivy and undergrowth. I thought t looked wonderful!

"Just Add Tourists" :- It's not often you get to see empty deckchairs on an empty beach on a Sunny day in Brighton. This was captured back on the 5th of July on the south coast of England around 11:00 am. I have no idea why the beach was deserted, it was a fine day and the sea was relatively calm. I didn't need to think twice about grabbing the shot though as it is an extremely rare sight!
