Ben Howard in Brighton


Caught Ben Howard last night at The Hope in Brighton, this guy is insanely talented and has the most unusual guitar playing style. Check him out.

Apols for the quality of pic as it's taken on my iPhone

Brighton at night series 7 of 7

Here's the final in this series of Night time shots in Brighton - the Pavillion again but this time from a not very much recognised side!

Taken with a long exposure - you can just about see the starts if you click on the image - and the blue spotlights from the ice skating rink on the other side of the building.

Thanks for reading this series of Brighton at Night.

Brighton nightime series 6 of 7

An amazing event organised by amazing people for an amazing charity.

Nuff said really - well done all - it was an awesome night at the Chestnut Tree House Snowman Spectacular Ball.

Well done also to my beautiful wife who's one of the team that help organise this event.

Brighton in snow


Suspending our nightime series briefly to bring you shots of Brighton under the snow - this is the road that links Brighton to Henfield over the downs. As you can see - it looks pretty spectacular and not at all surprised it's closed!

We interrupt our night shots series to bring you a snow shot! Brighton got a dumping of snow last night, about 6 inches. All very calm and lovely here - let the snow fun commence!

Brighton at night series 4 of 7

And a personal favourite of mine - spot the kissing couple at the bottom of the shot.

This is rather apt today as Brighton has ground to halt under a cover of snow this morning, curtailing a trip to London for me as the trains are in melt down :(

Severe disruption for a few cm of snow.

Hope you like the shot.
