All Before You, Grounded and Reservoir

"All Before You" :- Shot up on Telscombe Tye which sits between Telscombe village and the coast and is an area of open common land. It's also the end of a continuously built up area that runs from Shoreham in West Sussex to Saltdean in East Sussex. The Tye is part of the South Downs National Park and is rare as it's one of the few places where the park boundary reaches the coast. If you look to the left of the image you can just make out a small blue section of the English Channel.

"Grounded" :- Boats sit stranded on the River Adur and can only wait for the tide to return before being buoyant once more. It's unusual to see a river empty out so much but the Adur is well known for its mud flats. Once the tide returns and fills it again it becomes a vast ,wide and deep stretch of water. hasten to add that i was not standing on the mud flats in order to take this shot. I was as close as I could get to them without setting foot on the mud and was actually standing on some old brickwork at the side.

"Reservoir" :- To the south of the village of Woodingdean there's a dirt path / bridleway that's opposte the Ovingdean Road. A short distance up the dirt track you come to this gate and fence that keeps trespassers out from the grounds of the nearby reservoir. This shot was taken early morning just as the sunlight was beginning to spread its way across Brighton.
