Pink Lines, Glisten & Shimmer and Private Road

"Pink Lines" :- The last remnants of the day's sun transform contrails over Hove on the south coast of England. Even the beach huts on the wide promenade seem to glow and radate in the evening light. It's far more peaceful at this end of the seafront, there seems to be a slower pace of life here. As you walk East along the prom towards Brighton you notice things picking up and starting to get more hectic and busy as you get closer to the pier.

"Glisten & Shimmer" :- A peaceful and dreamy evening on Brighton beach at low tide. Gulls pad about by the waters edge and the sand takes on the appearance of a dolphin's skin as it shines and glimmers with the fadng light. Just the distant sound of traffic on the main coast road reminds you that you're in a city.

"Private Road" :- This is an image from the village of Firle in the Lewes District of East Sussex, England. It's mentioned in the Domesday Book and was at the time worth £44 which was amongst the highest values in the county. The village was once home to Virginia Woolf as well as Desmond Llewelyn who played "Q" in so many of the James Bond films. It's a very English village, steeped in history and tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the towns and city.
