Possibly apocalyptic, possibly just dramatic, but in my head if there was an apocalypse brewing near a set of beach huts, this is what it would look like 🙂
On a cold and blustery evening in mid December, I took a walk along Lancing beach. I only had my phone with me to take photographs, but even so, I can’t resist a beach hut!
Despite the ever variable British autumn weather, I have been continuing my investigation of the beach huts of the south coast. After all there is no point in waiting for ideal conditions in the UK, who knows when they will be…
My first stop this weekend was Shoreham. Somewhere I had been earlier in the summer with my Polaroid and iPhone but I wanted to see if I could get some better shots and give my lensball a trip out. TO be completely honest, I would have had better light if I had made the trip earlier in the day, however not to be deterred, I gave it a go and managed to get one or two interesting shots. Including one lensball shot I am particularly pleased with.
The Shoreham trip was a little late in the day, badly lit and rainy, but it was absolutely worth it for that one reflection shot!
The second expedition of the weekend was a trip to Rustington. It was another late evening trip, but this one involved a pretty spectacular sunset, and Rustington has an extremely colourful and extensive range of beach huts. Absolutely worth a trip!
All of the beach huts in all of the colours!!
And that was before I had got the lensball out…
All in all I am pretty pleased with these shots. I absolutely want to try some more lansball plus reflection shots. This is beginning to get interesting!
This past summer has been a strange one! The countrywide lockdown and continuing global pandemic, has meant that straying too far from home has been at best frowned upon and at worst, illegal.
The advantage to this is that I have taken the opportunity to photograph some places that are less than 1hr from home. You have seen some of the results of this already in my lensball efforts and my obsessive photographing of beach huts, but believe it or not, there is more on the south coast than beach huts…
For example, there is a fair bit of sea, and these amazing shelters and some fairly spectacular sunsets!
I love the art deco style of these! There are others which are more ornate, but these are by far my favourite!
Lastly, along with beach huts and shelters, the south coast this past year has been host to some fairly impressive sunsets, which may or may not feature beach huts…
