A huge puddle 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.

Hi Brian. I thought that the Brighton beach huts in Melbourne were special, but these look just as colourful- doubly so since the vibrant colours are reflected in the water. Lovely brightness overall. Best wishes for the week. Klaudio.

Once you realize the beauty of reflection photos, your eyes eventually start looking for any size of collected water on the ground. But this is indeed something realted to the "education" of the eye and sensory perceptions. Here, it is just a puddle but what created this wonderful photo is your "trained eye".
Have a nice week,
ps: this could also make a nice bookmark, imho

sempre della serie delle cabine altro ottimo scatto ricco di colore, nitidezza, riflessi magici ed eccellente nella composizione.
Ciao e buona giornata

Hello Brian,it looks as if there is a bit of work to be done to remove some of the sand around the beach huts,testament to the winter storms.
The reflections in the water add another lovely dimension to an already very colourful and well portrayed beach scene.Super shot.

The puddle makes a splendid mirror for the colourful beach huts of which we have an interesting array here. I like the oblique point of view and moody lighting. Very good colours and clarity. Have a great Bank Holiday.

Hi Brian, I love the reflection, very nice POV and colours, and even the clouds peaking in from behind contribute to a very harmonic and peaceful atmosphere of the image. Thanks for sharing!

Saw your picture in 500 yesterday & this picture reminded be of that post. Nice little diagonal with the fine bright colours...of course the reflections add a lot to the picture :-)

Hello Brian ,
This is a splendid capture of these colored huts and especially beautiful are the reflections in the water . You've well chosen the moment when the tide is the higher , reaching at the feet of the huts .

queste casette colorate contro questo cielo intenso, sono proprio una delizia per la vista, l'effetto del riflesso ne aumenta la piacevolezza.

A very strong, eye catching photo. Well done,
manrezaei (1837) 2013-05-06 7:12
A very nice shot. The symmetry in your photo superbly framed. The great clarity, vivid colors and splendid lights excellently managed. Very well done.

Beatiful row of the colorful huts, great light and beautiful reflections

Lumière magique donnant de très beaux reflets et des couleurs magnifiques à ces cabanes. Superbe photo, de très belle qualité et composée magnifiquement.
ACL1978 (7483) 2013-05-06 17:21
I wonder how many shots of these huts you've posted? And yet somehow you always come up with something different, such as this reflection in a puddle of rainwater, with bright light hitting the huts themselves and a nice deep sky behind.
Stylish new watermark as well!
Have a good week,
dkmurphys (50008) 2013-05-06 22:29
A deep calm scene in lovely colors. Everything looks almost unreal. Well seen, enjoy a fine day.
mjw364 (7512) 2013-05-07 1:07
Puddle or flood? Nice capture with lovely reflections here and one of your trademarks a great blue sky with a hint of cloud. Sharp, colourful and well composed.
Have a great day.

The puddle in front of the beach huts has certainly created a very nice effect and some pleasing reflections here. Great colors and pleasing light.
have a good day
siudzi (33953) 2013-05-08 3:23
What a charming scene full of great intensive colors! Very optimistic view taken with wonderful sharpness and attention on details. Well done! TFS.
tyro (20696) 2013-05-08 16:59
Not really very much to say about this one other than that it is yet another stunning example from your "beach hut" series and that in this case it also includes some wonderful reflections.
Again, your composition is both perfect and very pleasing, you have chosen just the right time of day to capture the correct angle of light (I suspect that you do some research in this regard), your colours are delightfully vibrant and it is also technically perfect with spot-on exposure and stunning sharpness. And again topped off with yet another of those gorgeous skies which appear to follow you around!
ChrisJ (99212) 2013-05-09 7:43
Wonderful symmetry with the reflected beach huts in the water with good sharpness and superb colour contrasts and saturation. Good repetition of patterns and shapes, too. The red and orange huts contrast strongly against the blue sky. Tfs!
npecanhuk (66302) 2013-05-09 19:44
I really enjoy this one too!
Simple but so beautiful colorful details!
I love those symmetrical reflections!
TFS - congrats,
annjackman (19933) 2013-05-12 8:53
What a fabulous opportunity this puddle gave you. The light on the beach huts is superb but to additionally have the reflections is magic!
A gorgeous image with its graphic diagonal and saturated colours.
Kind Regards, Ann
kasianowak (6839) 2013-05-17 2:21
I really like the use you made of the reflection here. Beautiful light and colours too.
Great photo opportunity well spotted and used!
adidas5nb (5409) 2013-05-24 19:38
love the reflection and the colors in this pic.like the pov and the composition, and how the collective band of the huts and its reflections sort of tapers from left to right.
