photoblog image Southwold Scene 6/6

Southwold Scene 6/6

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.

 

If there is one thing that Southwold is famous for it is its multi-coloured beach huts and this is just a small selection of them along the promenade close to the pier I featured on Monday.

 

I will admit to replacing the dull flat sky although it really hasn't come off all that well.

 

Chantal suggested that my post from yesterday might look o.k.in sepia so you can see it here

Sky is a dud, Brian, but the shot is good.
Brian Walbey: It is I agree but thanks for the second phrase Ray.

I like the depth perception and the vivid colours in this shot Brian....it makes me want to go to the beach because we are in the middle of a blizzard here at home.....petergrin
Brian Walbey: It's not much fun here today but thankfully not snow, yet, end of the week perhaps.
Love the angle here a lot
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal.
I love pictures of beach huts...don't know why really I just do!
Brian Walbey: And the Southwold beach huts are some of the most famous Bill.
Good investments now apparently.
Brian Walbey: So I read Nigel.
You see these in different parts of the world but not here in Canada. Very nice shot.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary.
In France we also have beach huts, but they are very different, I had never seen like that. It's really typical. A+ VAL smile
Brian Walbey: They are very English Hermione.
Great name on hut #89. Are these rented out, or are they free to the public, Brian?
Brian Walbey: Some are rented and some, possibly, are owned, but I doubt you would get the use of one for free Beverly.
I like the aangle of view Bill. I tried to comment on yesterdays sepia I prefer it in sepia smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Scotia.
Great Capture,I tried a similar shot but failed miserably.
Sky does look a bit, hm. how shall I say it - textured.
I did enquire the prices to buy,they cost Mega Bucks .
Brian Walbey: Yes they do cost a lot Martin, bluntly the sky is "cxxp" but everyone is too polite to say so smile

They really do make a colourful scene, Brian, despite what appeared a dull day. I've never had much luck in replacing a sky; I just accept whatever cards I get dealt!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan. Bluntly the sky is "cxxp" but everyone is too polite to say so.

I like the row of multi-coloured beach huts in England - although now abandoned and touched by a slight feel of melancholy - 'Life's a Beach- a nice motto, and I can imagine the high life at high season- and a dull sky is not lesser beautiful at the sea than a blue one, sorry, in my opinion - you cannot replace a sky, it looks too artificial, sorry!
Brian Walbey: I really messed up on the sky Philine, I have done it before quite successfully.
Great name on the blue hut, I wonder how long they have been there smile
Brian Walbey: Well I suppose the sea must do some damage in the winters Linda so i guess they are renewed reasonably often.
I love the happy, summer colours of this one. (:o)
Brian Walbey: We could do with summery colours today Rosalyn.
I'd love one of those Brian! I didn't realise Southwold was so pretty
Brian Walbey: Southwold is a very nice place Pamela.
