Blue and white beach hut 152 beneath a winter sky on the beach at West Wittering in West Sussex, England.
Well today I am posting my 1,000th addition to Trek Earth and to be honest cannot believe how quickly I have reached this milestone. I do not think I would be such an enthusiastic contributor if it were not for all my friends and fellow contributors out there in this beautiful world of ours. Your wonderful comments and appreciation for my postings is what spurs me on, and I also applaud your collective talents and creativity; it inspires me and makes it all worthwhile. I have learnt so much in the last 3 years - THANK YOU.

Many congratulations on reaching this milestone! And, a great picture to celebrate with. The bookmark format suits this fine graphical composition perfectly. Excellent light and colours with additional interest provided by the shadow play. Have a pleasant weekend.

Quite a landmark shot Brian! Congratulations on your 1000th image it's a beauty and very indicative of the quality and style for which you are known. I especially like the light in this one, you have managed its subtlety very well with good shadows and highlights across the painted beach hut. As always with this type of subject, your composition is well considered. I look forward to following your posts going forward as your work has inspired me to greater things.
Warmest regards Rosemary

this is a wonderfully composed and framed picture that makes the most of the graphical potential of the theme. The graphical impact of the perspectives and colours is so strong that the fine naturalness of the textures comes as a fascinating surprise. The role of the light is so intriguing too. Congratulations on this beautiful photo as well as on the whole of your gallery, so rich in photos, ideas and quality. Thank you for the inspiration and many wishes for your future work!
All the best, have a great weekend,

The lines, horizontal and vertical, in combination with the beautiful blue colour, make this photo to a real beauty!

congratulations. One-Thousand-Pictures... A decent achievement. This gallery of you is special because most of there 1000 are worth seeing. Just like it. A nice work with minimal composition. Like the soft but eye catching colour contrast. Great shot. Wish to congratulate in your next 1000 landmark :)
Happy New Year.
Romano46 (16586) 2014-01-04 5:46
complimenti per il bel traguardo che hai raggiunto, tanto più notevole perchè le foto che proponi sono sempre ben fatte e curate in ogni dettaglio senza mai trascurare nitidezza e composizione.
In questa si aggiunge anche un ottimo uso del colore.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Hello Brian ,
Congratulations for your 1000 posts on TE !
I appreciate your choice for this event , because this is the kind of oicture that is very inspiring for me .
And allways the same high quality ...
Hope you post more pictures here .
Noel_Byrne (22691) 2014-01-04 8:24
Congratulations on 1000! A big number no doubt, but no better place than here in my opinion to share so many wonderful shots. Like you, I have found this site to be an inspiration, a learning experience and a place to learn so much about the world and about photography. Its been a pleasure to be able to view your gallery in my own short time here!
You have a beautiful photo to celebrate too, of course the vivid blues jump out but for me the slight angle you chose to take this from is superb, giving depth, and creating a nice feeling between the building and the fence behind. I like that the padlock is blue too, a color coordinated locksmith is a rarity!
Thanks as always
dkmurphys (48078) 2014-01-04 9:06
First, the image is great with the blue colors of the sea and the contrasts. Second, I wish you to post a lot more images because you are doing a great job!
PS: how is the spirit there regarding the Romanian invaders? :P
gildasjan (41358) 2014-01-04 9:27
Une image parfaitement composée dans ce format vertical.Ici la lumière et le bleu donnent beaucoup d'intensité à cette réalisation.
Bonne année 2014 à vous et à votre famille
Subhogen (4065) 2014-01-04 9:50
Congratulations on your 1000th post to TE. A thousand photos is no big deal in this digital era, but a 1000 photos as good as yours each competing against each other for excellence is surely a big deal. Here thanks for the simple minimalist composition where colors and contrasts are the real subject rather than the beach hut itself. Fantastic photo!.
rigoletto (34251) 2014-01-04 10:22
hi brian. indeed, gulp! 1000 photos in three years means almost one photo per day! you are a speedy gonzales! but this also shows your addiction to photography and dedication to TE, so it is also great! i wish i could do the same... coming to the beach hut, what can i say, it is your specialty. so, heading to the next 1000 :))
macjake (54830) 2014-01-04 10:49
well, a congrats is certainly in order isnt! Good for you my friend, 1000 posts sure is alot! We all appreciate everyone of them too.
i know i certainly have learned alot from yr shots, so keep them coming!
And how classic that you post one of yr signature blue and white beach huts!! Haha
terrific! Awesome as always.
willperrett (6609) 2014-01-04 11:07
Happy New Year to you. This is a very good piece of work: graphic and simple in composition and a restricted palette of mainly blues and whites. I congratulate you on your perseverance: can't imagine having the concentration to stay on this site long enough to get anywhere near that total!
lousat (74887) 2014-01-04 11:19
Hi Brian,great way to celebrate your 1000th post! A beautiful composition in the sun,full of lines and colors in a magic close up,a big thanks for your work on this website,full of original and top quality pics! Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano
tyro (19728) 2014-01-04 13:29
First of all, Congratulations on having managed to post one thousand lovely photographs here - no mean feat and especially when we consider the invariably high quality of your pictures!
This is yet another of your wonderful photographs of one of your favourite subjects - the lovely and attractive beach huts which seem to abound in your area.
Your composition hjere is simple and bold and works very well indeed. And I think the one thing which really "holds" the whole composition together so effectively is that diagonal white wooden strut on the right - it leads the eye up to the apex of the roof and the "152" sign perfectly.
Again, you have managed the light here superbly well and have also managed to achieve a glorious and interesting sky against which the little hut stands out so perfectly.
Glorious light and colours, perfect exposure and your usual exquisite details and sharpness.
Congratulations once again and have a Wonderful 2014!
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-01-04 14:30
thanks for this nice summery photo which made today horrible day much sunnier. Good framing with focus on the beach hut and nice POV. The colors and their contrasting with each other make the image stand out from the others.
carlo62 (30441) 2014-01-04 16:15
è un vero piacere festeggiare i tuoi 1000 post.
Per quanto mi riguarda, devo solo imparare dalle tue foto, sempre tecnicamente perfette.
1000 foto in tre anni sono molte, non sempre è facile trovare nuove idee e nuovi stimoli come hai fatto tu.
Complimenti ancora, adesso aspettiamo i prossimi 1000.
jcpix (13346) 2014-01-04 21:35
1,000 big ones B, way to go! An remarkable number of high quality photo's that we've been able to enjoy, especially for a relative newbie like myself. :)
I mentioned the same thing on your 3 year anniversary, but I'll say it again...what impresses me most is the consistency of your work. I don't think you have a bad picture in the lot...and that's just not blowin' smoke! ;)
Be it 1, 1000, or 100000 this would have drawn my eye for the abundance of blue of course, but it's also a plethora of straight edges and their subsequent lines which I find enticing. Not only that, but the play of light and shade has also created another set of shapes. Consciously composed and detailed as always, compliments on the milestone mate. Keep 'em coming!
Cheers from the other side of the Alantic,
jjcordier (75086) 2014-01-04 22:47
1000 photos en 3 ans....c'est une très belle performance, d'autant plus que chacune de tes contributions est toujours une grande réussite. On admire ton sens de la composition et du cadrage, ta gestion de la lumière et de l'exposition et la qualité d'image parfaite. C'est évidemment encore le cas sur cette superbe photo!
emka (76255) 2014-01-04 23:51
fantastic achievement of you - so many wonderful pictures in only three years. You are really addicted to our site, like me :). And charming shot to celebrate it, your beloved beach huts.
all the beat in 2014 and next 1000 photos, now it will pass faster..
HimalAnda (9107) 2014-01-05 1:21
Congratulations for this 1000th picture on TrekEarth!
The composition is very good and the light management is excellent.
mkamionka (30068) 2014-01-05 12:00
great composition. I like the geometry with plenty of lines all over the frame. Lovely colors too which make me think about Greece rather than the UK.
The perspective is perfectly straight, I like how you thought everything through.
You are so efficient. 1000 sounds like a real milestone. Your gallery is always a great inspiration for me. I admire your creativity and a good eye to spot fantastic compositions.
npecanhuk (63470) 2014-01-05 14:16
You always work so beautifully with those colorful cabins! This is a lovely and very attractive picture!
Special regards to the colors, management of light, slim vertical format and composition!
TFS - congrats,
jhm (137518) 2014-01-06 4:31
Sorry I am little bit to late, but better late than never.
Congratulations for your thousand pictures on TE, this is a nice milestone.
Almost the same huts find we here on the Belgian coast with the blue white lines.
Excellent composition, pleasant to look at.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice week,
Royaldevon (28337) 2014-01-06 16:26
I know I've been away for a while but I couldn't miss this! Congratulations on your 1,000th post! It is a good choice of subject, for it is one which we all associate with you!
The limited colour palette adds strength to the overall impact. The composition, as always, is well thought out, whilst the saturation and the sharpness are commendable.
My warm regards,
serp2000 (39248) 2014-01-12 2:56
Let me add my congratulations on your celebrating, Brian!
I like your photos, and I appreciate your contribution to the Trekearth.
1000 photos seem like a 1000 miles by walk with camera ;))
Best wishes from Russia!
adores (35614) 2014-01-16 14:37
Another great shot of these beach huts! Colours and light are excellent! I like the way you framed it and the vertical format was a good option. You have a great series already!
