Southwold Scene 3/6

Our visit to Southwold in July was quite spectacular in terms of the sea, clouds and wind, but as you will see there was a considerable difference once the sun came out.

 

The last of these shots with no sun and full sun is another angle on Southwold's famous lighthouse.  One wonders what its usefulness would be hidden away behind those tall houses.

Another fine post in this excellent and unique series, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.
Were you loitering with intent Brian {grin}
Brian Walbey: Hurtling along trying to get as many shots as possible in a short time Richard, I really wanted to get to the church, which I did, and you will see those pictures next week.

Those houses were probably built after it ceased to work - I'm only guessing
Brian Walbey: I don't really know Chris, they are quite old in themselves, and looking it up on Google it seems it was built there after the houses.

The light does make a world of difference Brian
Brian Walbey: It does indeed Tony, thanks.

Is the sea behind the lighthouse or here in the foreground, Brian?? But yes, the weather can like that here in The Netherlands, too!
Brian Walbey: The sea is behind me Ginnie, the lighthouse has been built within the houses, one of the nice little characteristics of Southwold. Wait till you see what is in the church next week.
I really like the idea behind this series
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal.
Great series! Clever idea, well executed. (:o)
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rosalyn.
Quite an original series Brian. I like it!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, tomorrow I return to more normal images.
Your camnera seems to have the incredible ability to change the weather.
Brian Walbey: Can't beat a Canon Chad, they do anything wink
Another interesting pairing, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
Those drab buildings and lighthouse really do wake up in the sun.
Brian Walbey: I just wish it had been sunny all the time we were there Sheila, but then I wouldn't have got this little group of shots would I.

I wouldn't fancy being in one of those houses if the fog horn was sounding!
Brian Walbey: Better than an alarm clock Alan smile

Oh, what a change within half an hour - I wonder that the colours are brighter on the picture above inspite of some dull sky? The lighthouse is the icon and mark of Southwold indeed.
Brian Walbey: Yes Southwold is famous for its lighthouse Philine. I suspect you would enjoy a visit to Southwold, it is quaintly English. I like Ginnies pictures of you and Astrid today, I guess you all had a good time.
I like this Brian..The sunshine makes it look a happy place compared to the other.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron. Southwold is a nice place whatever the weather but the sun helps. Nice to hear from you, I hope all is progessing with your health problem in a satisfactory manner.
What a change, presume this is not a working lighthouse.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a working lighthouse I believe John but without a keeper presumably like most of them.
I have enjoyed this trio of no sun/sun pics Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill.
If you don't like the sky just wait a while and another will come along. Nice one Brian.
Brian Walbey: We would have had to wait a long while here today Les.
Fascinating place for a lighthouse Brian smile
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed, there must have been a reason for it I suppose.
this is a bit like fleetwood, not sure if its there but there was a light house in the middle of the streets, think the town got built round it, good images again
Brian Walbey: Thanks Derek. There must be a reason why they done this at Southwold.
Wow it's incredible the weather is very changing. The lighthouse is very beautiful. A+ VAL smile
Brian Walbey: It is one of the things to look at in Southwold, quite a landmark.
