Not The Med, Stronghold and New Gold Dream

"Not The Med" :- This looks as though it could have been captured somewhere on the Costa Del Sol but that inviting blue water is not the mediterranean at all but is in actual fact the English Channel. This is a view from the Rottingdean Terraces Stage in the coastal village of Rottingdean , England. For many years it was a fairly run down part of the village and used very little. recently it's been given a lick of paint and "spruced up" a bit and has been reinvented as a venue providing a varied summer of live music and theatre performances.

"Stronghold" :- A view looking through the impressive Barbican Gate of Lewes Castle in the historical town of Lewes in Sussex, England. Lewes Castle was built in 1069 by William de Warenne, 1st Earl of Surrey and the brother-in-law of William the Conqueror. The Barbican (a fortified outpost or gateway) is a fine example of its type and the castle is currently open to visitors.

"New Gold Dream" :- A chance encounter with a stunning, moody and stormy looking sky. I was actually on my way back after a day out with the camera and for some reason decided to head back down to the beach for one last look. It was overcast as I got there and was about to turn and go when the sun broke through a gap in the clouds and created this awesome golden haze. I ran "like the devil" across the beach with camera in hand to get the ruins of the West Pier in the right position and grabbed the shot. Shortly after the sun disappeared and the moment was gone.
