There'll be bluebirds over.....


....the white cliffs of ......

This is the sight that usually greets those arriving by the sea from the South East. The white chalk cliffs stop and start and go all the way round to Dover and beyond.

Just a touch of saturation and sharpness bought out the best of this beach hut lock up on a rainy day on the seafront.

Rock pools


Down at Peacehaven at low tide you can see mile after mile of great rock pools, teeming with crabs and fun stuff for the kids to do. More shots over at Brighton Daily Photo Extra

Roedean


Through these rather austere looking gates is the famous school called Roedean. An imposing structure just behind the Marina....

Get it whilst you can!


This was the sunshine yesterday evening - this morning, torrential rain - it's like a long playing record now - rain rain rain!

BDP will be off air until Monday as I'm off to a pals 40th in Belgium, Malmedy. Travelling by motorcycle in the rain doesn't exactly fill me with joy :( but a cold beer on the other end does.

See y'all Monday....

Charming


When the tide is right out and the sun is setting, the wreck of the West Pier can be the most charming of places.

France Daily Photo


In my own mini attempt to usurp Paris Daily Photo or the other French sites - here's my own tricolore.....

In fact we had a visit from a French Market - housed down on Hove Lawns I was particularly please to get a religeuse and flan from the boulanger....oui oui.....

Fishing boats


With the rough seas over the last few weeks I wouldn't be surprised if these chaps haven't been able to get out in a while.

Night time....


As day time has been a little dreary of late (I know I keep banging on about the weather), I thought I'd post this shot of a night view so you cant see the clouds.....

No one here....


The recent bad weather I think will have hit our tourism business hard the last month - Brighton has its own economy based on attracting visitors and I fear it would have been affected. People want to head for the sun when the weather's as unreliable has it's been - head for Spain has been the rallying cry......

I'm now fearing the worst for the Big Chill festival which we're attending - and looking at Glasto being a washout doesn't inspire me with confidence :(

View from the top


Just outside of Roedean School as you come into Brighton from the east this is the view you'll be confronted with - the swooping round construction at sea is the Marina. This is the first sunshine we've seen in DAYS! but it's still windy and cold.....

Tall Ships


Make way for the tall ships, spotted nestling in Shoreham Harbour behind the lock is this tall ship. I couldn't get close enough to get her name or find any news as to why she's here in Brighton - any one know any news about this ship?
