Winter blue skies and 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 weeks of persistent rain.

Great colours and graphic effect, the reflections and deep blue sky are playing a good role here...
I like it very much!! A nice place to be...

This is a simple but beautiful picture. As usual, the saturated colors are very nice.

hi Brian, this composition is just like a rhythmic and artistic mathematical equation... Love the colourful cottages with their reflection. Great colour tone and depth. Another excellent one. Tfs.

The water on the flooded beach must have been very calm noting that there are only minor ripples on the reflections.
Splendid vivid colours and contrasts!
Best regards, Paul

Wow Brian this is visually stunning. The saturated colours, the reflections and the clever use of the vertical space all make this a graphic and gorgeous image.
Kind Regards, Ann

Composition and framing are par excellence for this image ideally suited to the square format. Superb light and saturated colours and fine clarity. It is surprising how these simple structures consistently make such good photographic subjects. Have a good weekend.

Great colorful and oversaturated image ;) I like the composition
The decision to give half the place to the sky is very good in this case ;)
Like it ;)
Cheers and thanks for the quality work

una foto semplice, colorata, bella.
È un vero piacere osservarla, una tavola blu con geometrie colorate ripetute nel riflesso.

Splendidi riflessi speculari...composizione minimalista, ma di grande effetto, con colori fantastici!
Un saluto, Ely

superbe photo de ces cabines alignées et surtout un bel effet miroir
krzychu30 (12651) 2013-09-21 7:11
finally your trademark!Colorful beach huts in so excellent composition!
The puddle provides us with really magnificent reflections of the huts.But also the contrast to the blue sky and between the huts is superb!
Simple,but very expressive composition!
Have a nice weekend

rychem (13628) 2013-09-21 8:21
The reflections are so ideal,that I thought that they were made in Photoshop. Great shot
kasianowak (3474) 2013-09-21 8:32
Amazing colours and wonderful reflection! I like the crop - great idea to leave a lot of the inky sky at the top.
lgir (6651) 2013-09-21 9:11
Again the colors are sublimated in your compositions, in more an undeniable aesthetic. That is beautiful, clean and efficient.
SnapRJW (23602) 2013-09-21 9:22
Hello Brian - The clear, crisp February weather has given you the opportunity to show the reflected huts and beautiful blue sky off to great advantage. I think the balance of the composition is just right. Super simple but excellent in every way. Warm regards rosemary
ChrisJ (91276) 2013-09-21 11:51
That's quite a big puddle! And the sky blue reflection in the almost unrippled surface is superb and mirror like. Good sharpness, density and saturation with the hot colors of (all bar one of) the bathing boxes markedly contrasting against the cooler blue tones. Tfs!
siudzi (27707) 2013-09-21 13:14
What a charming post executed with superb saturation of colors! Like the way you have achieved the graphical effect with the mirror reflections. Superb idea! Very well executed work. TFS.
Romano46 (11461) 2013-09-21 15:51
una delle tue più belle avente questo soggetto.
Colori vivaci e brillanti, nitidezza impeccabile e composizione assai piacevole.
Un altro successo.
Ciao e buona domenica

A glorious photograph from a bright and sunny day in a very cold February of this year when we thought the rain was never going to stop.
But that has given you a wonderful opportunity to capture this fabulous shot of brightly coloured beach huts and their reflections in the flooded area before them.
Gloriously saturated colours, fabulous light, perfect exposure and, of course, your usual impeccable technical perfection, have all made this a delightful and very appealing photograph!
npecanhuk (56360) 2013-09-21 17:51
Beautiful and pleasant-looking picture with special regards to the wonderful saturated colors and the excellent chosen pov and composition with those attractive symmetrical reflections!
TFS - congrats,
jjcordier (67214) 2013-09-21 22:42
Superbe composition colorée où la lumière sublime joue son rôle à merveille donnant un splendide effet miroir. Très belle photo, de grande qualité.

Hi Brian, How wonderful blue is this sky in the puddle. Sotimes there are goo sides of rain :). Marvelous colours. Warm regrads MAlgo
dkmurphys (42483) 2013-09-22 1:29
Lovely reflections, a true beautiful graphical work. Well taken, enjoy a nice day.
Bartleby (13238) 2013-09-22 7:57
back to one of your favorite subjects I see! Well what can I say? Balanced composition, bright colors...That's a good job.
mjw364 (6142) 2013-09-23 10:08
Great colours and symmetry in this reflection shot and as always those milky wisps in the sky! Well composed.
macjake (45588) 2013-09-24 6:23
uh oh! Do we have another photo that people may rather see it in the horizontal than the vertical??
any requests yet from the te members? :)
well, horizontal or vertical its a stunner.
stunner for its colors, exposure, lighting, and just the overall feel and texture of the scene.
and i like how only 1 of the huts is directly facing us, the blue and pink one.
very cool indeed!!!!
mkamionka (27069) 2013-09-24 7:53
great composition. I really like the colorful huts, they make a lovely repeated motif here plus they are additionally reflected to make the geometry even more attractive. Everything is obviously so well thought through. The sky so blue I would not guess it is England ;)
abmdsudi (32471) 2013-09-24 9:27
Splash of fantastic bold colours. A visually stunning and passionate warmth of colour stretching out beyond the frame that deserve a photo!!! This is hugh pop up really, with good placement & the almost mirror water reflection does add the extra punch. Another high quality shot. Congrats, TFS

Ciao dear Brian
I'm still in Ireland, homeward bound, my reason for being AWOL from TE for so long :) another 24 hours and I'll finally be home.
A stunning photo, which has so much impact, as much as for its beauty as for its uniqueness. Superb reflections and chromatic rendering. The symmetry is truly wonderful. Excellent work, speak to you in a few days once the jet lag's worn off.
Hansaphotos (6071) 2013-09-28 15:24
Beautiful capture of these beach huts. A very suitable squarish format. Nice composition and lovely effect of the reflections in the glass clear water. Very nice work! TFS.
Enjoy your WE.
Best regards, Erling
