Southwold Scene 2/6

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.

 

This is one of the most popular shots taken on the seafront of the lighthouse just slightly inland.  Once again the difference in colours is prominent because of the sun coming out later in the afternoon.

Same view two different photos
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed vintage, thanks.
Why does everyone include the lighthouse in images of Southwold ... HA HA
Brian Walbey: Because that's one thing the place is famous for Richard, apart from your excellent photos of course, (I'm crawling), and I wanted to impress all our foreign friends, another shot of it tomorrow, sorry smile
What a difference a splash of sunlight makes,it must be one of the most photographed lighthouses in the country.
Brian Walbey: I reckon it is well photographed martin and there is a different angle on it tomorrow.

It brings back happy memories for me Brian
Brian Walbey: About time you made a long distance trip to Southwold again Chris, perhaps at the same time as Mr.T.goes up to his house.
Are you saying that the weather is changeable.
Brian Walbey: Just a tad Chad. (That rhyme's, yippee.)
A remarkable difference Brian. Amazing what a drop of sunlight can do.
Brian Walbey: It really did brighten the time up Sheila but hth wind was still blowing a gale.
Another good pair of shots to compare. (:o)
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rosalyn.

interesting project Brian,did you set out to do this series when you were there
Brian Walbey: Thanks Conrad. No I took a set of shots in the dull weather only because we had a short time there and then the sun came out so I quickly took some again, benefits of digital, no film wasted.
The weather seems being changeable for our greatest pleasure Brian!
Brian Walbey: It does indeed Richard.
how weather can change in just a few minutes, 41 to be exact
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Chantal.
This is what it is like on this small island. The old saying is, "If you don't like the weather, wait five minutes."
Brian Walbey: It paid off for me this time Mary at least.

"41 minutes"
Brian Walbey: And counting.
Somewhere I have never been Brian. Looks nice in the sun
Brian Walbey: We really like Southwold Bill, we had a couple of holidays in that area when we lived near cambridge and the children were young. The whole are is a very good one to visit, lots of places to go (and photograph).
Looks almost like a different place!
Brian Walbey: It certainly brightened us up Tom.
Again proves the point. I always think it is interesting on a walk that one sees things differently on the return trip smile
Brian Walbey: I suppose in part the aspect of something is completely different in the opposite direction John.

I had a very short visit there last year and loved it.I was fascinated by the lighthouse in the centre of the town. This is a lovely reminder.
Brian Walbey: I'm pleased it reminds you of a good trip SAlan, Southwold is the sort of place we like.
both nice shots but the sunlight does bring it to life
Brian Walbey: It certainly does Derek.
It looks a really lovely place, these pictures tell a huge amount. Love the way you've put them together to show the contrasting weather.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ellie. If you've never been to Southwold it is worth a visit, so different from big resorts like Bournemouth, Yarmouth et al.
Yes, I prefer the sunny one Brian smile
Brian Walbey: I prefered it when the sun came out as well Pamela but it didn't stay out for long.
