A flood on the sand in front of the colourful beach huts at West Wittering Beach in West Sussex, England. A legacy of the sand piled up by the winter storms and persistent rain.

The view on the colorful beach huts and its reflections is superb! I like it a lot. Very attractive and eye-catching crop. Taken with a superb sharpness and saturation effect. Well done. Have a nice day!

This is the sort of shot that needs recording as a memory of the weather conditions of 2012. It is easy to forget how the land suffered.
Having said that, what a fine opportunity for reflections! We don't usually get such beautiful reflections on a beach! Your viewpoint uses the receding line of huts to perfection, producing a great sense of perspective. The shot has great clarity and is well saturated.
Have a great Sunday,

Hello Brian - This shot is really special; I love it! The flood water adds texture, mood and those fabulous reflections. Very lovely light and such a super selection of contrasting colours across the beach huts. This has to be amongst your very best. Warm regards Rosemary

questa è ancora più bella della precedente che avevi proposto con lo stesso tema.
La presenza dell'acqua rende la composizione ancor più vivace. I colori molto saturi e brillanti sono stupendi. La nitidezza eccellente concorre a fare di questa composizione un sicuro successo.
Ciao e buona domenica

Whoever thought a flood could be so beautiful! This is such a wonderful scene, the beach huts by themselves make a really wonderful scene, but the fact that it is doubled with the fine reflection is a real added bonus. A beautiful sky against which it is presented too.
All the best
ourania (44342) 2013-02-17 5:07
this is a strikingly lovely and vivid image, the colours and textures are so well defined and along with the superb depth and perspective produce a most rewarding and fascinating visual experience. The clouds really enrich the composition and the clarity with wich you've captured them is remarkable. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Bright and colourful!
The square format emphasizes the shape of the beach huts (or is it teh othter way round??)
romanaa (7984) 2013-02-17 7:02
thanks for adding some colour to my recent foggy black and white days. Beautiful diagonal in excellent quality as usual. :-)

As soon as i saw it i knew it was yours:) Another brilliant shot Brian, and an additional reflection that gives even more interestt to the pic.
rychem (34611) 2013-02-17 8:20
Simply excellent. Fantastic colors and reflections, perfect lighting conditions, compliments

This flooding might be considered to be a disaster by the owners of these beach huts but to you as a photographer it is a godsend!
Despite having taken this in early afternoon (thanks for the exif data!) in February, you have caught the most amazingly interesting blue sky with lovely puffy clouds and this makes a fine backdrop to the row of different coloured huts as well as ehancing the reflections of them in the smooth water in the distance. The strong sunlight on the "faces" of the huts enhances their colours even more.
Excellent composition, lovely light, perfect exposure, gorgeous vibrant colours and exquisite detail and sharpness.

una diagonale fatta di figure geometriche colorate, espresse in modo superbo anche grazie al bel riflesso.
mjw364 (842) 2013-02-17 10:50
As always a great composition exhibiting sharpness, clarity colour and great vibrant colours.
I can't imagine why Tyro thinks the owners might think of this as a disaster. If you build a hut on the beach expect the tide to come in at some point!
npecanhuk (74878) 2013-02-17 17:40
Very beautiful and interesting picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov and composition are all excellent photo qualities that pleased me a lot!
I loved your idea and found specially attractive the reflections you obtained here!
TFS - congrats,
Enjoy your week,

Magnifique! Superbe cadrage exploitant au mieux ces splendides cabines colorées et leur reflet. La lumière est excellente et rend les couleurs de l'ensemble somptueuses. Très réussi!
dkmurphys (57514) 2013-02-17 22:41
Wonderful colors in this beach scene. I like the POV, you are making this colored cabins a trademark of yours. Good work.
korbee (6617) 2013-02-18 13:29
Always like your own unique style Brian ;=],
The British climate is always sunny in your pictures,and that is also one of your strong points,I think its a matter of good timing,same like the dutch weather.
Keep your camera always in the pocket,for the best results....
jcpix (13914) 2013-02-19 18:52
I'm sure this is a great shot even without the reflection, but the flooding has definitely enhanced the scene and created that symmetrical type of appearance. You have a great handle over light and color, everything is bright and bold but in no way overpowering. I like the clouds appearing to hover over the huts, as if to say "clear for now, but don't get to comfortable!" :) It's cliché, but I'll say it anyway...beautiful!
kasianowak (8743) 2013-02-20 4:12
Wonderful colours and thoughtful composition. You made great use of the weather conditions!
Have a nice evening
Cricri (117899) 2013-02-20 11:22
C'est super ces cabanes colorées qui ce reflète dans l'eau, excellente perspective et un ciel superbe
macjake (67100) 2013-02-22 8:22
i have to say, i love viewing these same style photos of yours even just for the colors :)
Wish we had similar huts out here.
the clouds help to soften the image a bit, and again, the colors steal the show.
baddori (20121) 2013-03-06 8:04
(y) Great environment ... typical seaside .. in bad weather. Brilliant colors and great detail.
adores (45029) 2013-03-07 16:51
The huts are really colourful and the flood gave you the chance to get a great reflection. Seems all the huts are different here:)! A very good shot! I like the diagonal and the light and colours are perfect! - well done!
