A low winter sun breaks through the clouds and lights up the colourful beach huts along the edge of the beach in the town of Seaford, East Sussex, England.
Today (14/05/2012) is the second anniversary of my joining this splendid community of fellow photographers and artists. The wonderfully inspiring images posted by you, my fellow members and friends, plus of course your marvellous comments means my enthusiasm for TE is undiminished despite uploading my 500th image yesterday.
Words cannot express my gratitude and appreciation of your interest and help in what is always going to be a work in progress.
A BIG thank you for making what started out as a mere pastime into a passion.

Good Morning Brian
I know how you feel. I'm sure your notes express the feelings of many people in this community - it was just a brief pastime and yet it has grown to be a large part of your waking hours! But, don't we learn a lot here!
It's a bit like an Andy Warhol with its repeating images and bright colours. It's beautifully presented, sharp, well saturated and a great anticipation of the Great British Summer!
Congratulations and have a great day,

Lovely composition in high quality. I like the contrast between the dark sky and the colored barracks. Well seen!

Had to drop in & say Congrats! Your pictures from your country & specially those from Greece provide lovely insights into architecture & composition. Your use of light & colours can be a lesson for many of us (me for sure). In this simple theme you posted here, its all about these two things...colour & light, composed effectively to make a visually attractive picture.
Look fwd for the next 500!

Fabulous Brian. The light across the fronts of the cabins is so perfect creating a colourful contrast to the dark sky and pavement. This can only be a 'Brian' shot.
I want to thank you and congratulate you on your 500th post and second anniversary. I have thoroughly enjoyed viewing your work and have learned a lot from doing so. Your encouragement has been invaluable! Your passion is plain to see and long may it continue. Warm regards Rosemary

Good Evening Brian
They have these same style of bathing boxes in Brighton, a suburb of Melbourne in Victoria and both make great photogenic subjects. Good sharpness & wonderful warm cold colour contrasts between the red, yellow & blue. The diagonal axis adds both linear perspective & dynamism. Tfs!
rbassin (20236) 2012-05-14 4:07
bravo pour tes 500 photos sur TE.
Bravo aussi pour cette composition,bien cadrée autour de ces cabanons.
De très belles couleurs.

Hi dear Brian
Congratulations on your 2 years here on TE. As I've said before, you make a wonderful contribution to this site and I am delighted to be able to view and critique your superb photos. Something a little different from you today, in terms of the square frame, but the same extraordinary quality and skill. The colour of the sky and the contrasting colours is simply magnificent. Congratulations and here's to many many more years here on this addictive site.

C'est un carré parfaitement exposé et une sous-exposition met bien en valeurs tous les éléments de cette composition.
Bravo et bonne après-midi
BennyV (14689) 2012-05-14 5:21
Superb celebration shot, Brian. Festive colours, a good angle, great sharpness to bring out some of the textures & superb light. It's been a pleasure seeing your shots here & hope there's lots more to follow.
All the best

What a coincidence. Celebrating double event. Double congratulations for completing 2 years and posting 500th photo. I like the saturated colors which stand out against the pale blue sky. A beautiful composition with sharpness.
notrap (5973) 2012-05-14 13:25
Gratulation zu Deinen Jubiläen hier auf TE, 500 Fotos in zwei Jahren sind ein sehr guter Durchschnitt. Dieses Foto zeigt Deine Fähigkeit, sich auf das Wesentliche zu konzentrieren und es perfekt in Szene zu setzen.
Sonata11 (33697) 2012-05-14 21:02
An interesting composition of those cabins. Accounted for as great in terms of color and sharpness. Beautifully photographed with fantastic POV. I really like it. Thanks for sharing.
jjcordier (79275) 2012-05-14 22:33
Félicitations pour ces deux ans de présence sur le site et surtout un grand merci pour toutes les somptueuses photos que tu partages avec nous. Celle d'aujourd'hui est une preuve supplémentaire de ton grand talent de photographe qui sait magnifiquement jouer avec la lumière et les couleurs. C'est splendide!
baddori (20011) 2012-05-14 23:09
Ho grande riverenza per la tua galleria.
Perfetta in ogni espressione.
Prediligi le forme ed i colori al meglio.
Una grande padronanza del PP e della distribuzione dei neri, la vividezza e la perfezione delle linee con una maschera di contrasto che esalta, e non sottrae.
Molta da imparare da te....
npecanhuk (70734) 2012-05-15 3:09
First of all, congratulations for your 2nd year here wih us and for your 500th post!
You celebrate this date with a typical picture of yours, full of wonderful colors, shapes, textures and light!
More years and pictures, let them come!!!!
archimatica (20446) 2012-05-15 6:12
Strong visual impact, I like the colors against the sky.
macjake (62252) 2012-05-15 9:42
Congrats on your 500th photo! I'm near that mark aswell, i think i'm currently at 496 or so.
its a significant number, and hopefully we will see 500+ more.
this one is simply a "timecapturer" photo!
So much of your style and signature scene, lighting, and colors.
love the textures in the wood grain.
its a super shot Brian
vasilpro (41161) 2012-05-15 11:48
Another wonderful composition with lovely warm light and vivid colors, excellent POV, very good clarity, sharpness and contrast.
Congratulations for the second anniversary on TE and thank you for the 500 wonderful photos that you have shared with us!
Warm regards, Vasilis.
Bartleby (13552) 2012-05-15 12:55
well you shouldn't miss such a light! And you didn't! Great contrast between those colorful huts and the overcast sky.
RhodieIke (11744) 2012-05-15 23:06
Well done for your 2 years on TE.
Well done for your 500th.
Well done for a super post above.
annjackman (21053) 2012-05-15 23:15
A fabulous achievement and a great contribution you have made to TE. This picture is typical of the high quality you achieve using glorious light. The saturated colours and the dark background are graphic making an excellent and thoughtfully composed composition.
Kind Regards, Ann
tyro (22374) 2012-05-16 8:24
What a lovely note you have written, not just complimentary to Adam and his TrekEarth site but also to all those who contrbute so many wonderful photographs and so many kind and helpful (and, thankfully, also critical and constructive) comments and critiques. I, like many here, totally concur with your views. In fact, I found this site merely by chance nearly six years ago and immediately joined up (I also joined TL and TN at the same time) and have had great fun and have learned a lot, not just about photography but about the World in general. When I was working, I found I had litle time to dedicate to the site but now that I am a member of the idle poor, I seem to spend more and more enjoyable hours here!
This is another of your fine photographs from Sussex, again with wonderfully simple yet strong composition. The colours are vibrant and the different coloured beach huts stand out proudly against a wonderfully dark sky as they are illuminated by the low angle warm sunlight.
Fabulous colours and contrasts, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.
And congratulations on your 500th post!
emka (87416) 2012-05-17 23:58
Hi brian I missed this photo, so important. Congratulatio ns for your 500 wonderful posts. you have your own style and colours, easy to recognize. Superb composition of these small colourful beach huts.
chawax (19946) 2012-05-18 13:50
Great shot ! I love the square format that fits very well with these cabins and their square front. Excellent colours and light. Good sharpness too.
Have a nice week end,
ahmet54 (3113) 2012-05-19 4:35
great shot for your jubilee. I like the saturated colours in the low light.
Thanks for sharing.
Cricri (111963) 2012-05-19 23:41
Magnifique cette image, tant dans le choix du cadrage, le contraste des couleurs avec le ciel, la lumière sur les cabanes, vraiment excellente, hop dans mes favoris
