Summer on the pebble beach at Shoreham-by-sea, West Sussex, England. A seat under blue skies and half moon, amidst a sea of colour provided by the opportunist wild flowers blossoming on the barren soil.

Splendid colours and great composition. I really like the minimalist approach to the bench and the foreground filled with flowers.

Superb surroundings for the bench. I like the strong natural colors and the artistic POV. Well done!

a fine composition with the seat perfectly positioned in the frame adding interest to a colourful summer scene.
I do like the punchy sky.
All the best Les.

Hi Brian - Colours that sing and a shot that is beautifully balanced, perhaps a little loss of detail in the red flowers but nothing that spoils the shot.

The title well chosen, Brian, and the bench is a dividing point between the green and purple/red field, and stunning blue sky aloft.
Those flowers are vivid and beautiful.
One remark though: a bit too vertical scene - maybe a horizontal format would show more of this fine landscape.

A beautiful post. Filled with life and color and such vibrancy, so do not understand why for some reason, this image gives me a tint of sadness. Perhaps its the empty bench which seems to look out on something unseen. I appreciate the color and life here very much, but even more so the inexplicable feeling it evokes. Very nicely done.

Hey ya' salty sea dog,
Well, we've had a boat, now a bench...what's next, a Brian? :) Gotta' keep up with the "B" theme, yeah...or will the next photo actually have bee's?
This would sure seem to be a nice spot to buzz around if I were one, all of these lovely blossoms to pollinate and sniff up the intoxicating aroma's produced. Is that bench a welcome place to sit nearby and get a contact high? hehe
Another beauty of natures vibrant display, and a composition which tantalizes the curiosity as to what lies beyond. Good to see those sunny skies over England...especially after a tough opening WC match. Sorry mate, it's not over yet...keep your chin up! Thanks for taking us outside to soak up the warmth and colors. Have a good one. Take it easy.
Cheers from across the pond,

Good morning my dear friend
tis is not a simple shot it is a real dream
what could I say for this amazing blue sky
and the original flower s carpet?only greetings
fantastic contrast between this colorful
natural carpet and the amazing blue sky
the best detail is the bench looking at nowhere
without human being adding life
your inspiration created a wonderful
composition and a peaceful atmosphere
have a nice day

Attractive and colorful shot, clever idea, great composition with the bench taken against the sky and colorful flowers in the FG
jjcordier (79297) 2014-06-16 23:27
Encore une belle composition verticale exploitant au mieux ce parterre de fleurs coloré et ce superbe ciel bleu.

What a cracker. Love the artistic way you composed that, with the vertical frame and all that sky and the carpet of flowers. The summer colours are a joy to behold. Thanks for sharing, and sorry for the brief critique as I'm flat-chat at the moment.
Sorry, the Greenpeace link is a nightmare.

Thank you so much.

Lovely colors and light capture, well composed with the detail of the bench, tfs.

Wonderfully conceived...from your low POV, the beautiful colours of the flowers lead our view to the bench against the sky....Lovely title to the image as well. Fie work!
