Summer on the pebble beach at Shoreham-by-sea, West Sussex, England. Blue skies over a riot of colour provided by the opportunist wild flowers blossoming on the barren soil.

nice the view as the presentation of the colourful flowers on the beach under this blue and clear sky.
I like the beauty of the image,the vivid and the contrast of the colours of this excellent scene.
I always use the beta.trekearth version that enlarge the photo making to can see someone a lot of details.

Yes, again this is a photograph which has suffered in quality by being "reduced" on this website from 800 pixels wide to 790 pixels wide. Curious how such a small reduction can cause such a diminution in sharpness. Perhaps we should all simply start posting images at no more than 790 pixels in width (height doesn't seem to matter) - or else simply stick to using "beta" TE which I know many longstanding members already do.
All that aside, this is a wonderfully colourful image, so simple in its composition and with the lovely red, white and magenta flowers standing out perfectly against the deep blue sky and the green foliage. The little triangle of beach pebbles helps hold the whole picture together very nicely.
Gorgeous bright light and rich colours and stunning image quality - as always.

Strong contrasting colours here which betray the fact that these are beach blooms in some way - I don't think I have ever seen such colourful flora on the beach anywhere! Composed meticulously as always making great use of lead lines form right to left.

Hi Brian - What a magical sight and a subject that I love. The vivid colours are the main attraction here and to my eye work a treat. A simple and successful composition.
Warm regards Rosemary
PS. I am coming across to the UK end August, early September and Ann is busy organising a TE get together down on the South Downs. It would be brilliant if you could meet up with us. I am sure she will be in touch in due course.

An outstanding yet simple composition that is immediately attractive. I love the way the colours are laid out in distinct zones; no chaos.
