Winter sunshine under a blue sky, lights up the brightly coloured beach huts that sit in a line along the edge of the pebble beach, in the town of Seaford, East Sussex, England. A crow sits on a beach lamp also admiring the sky, settled amongst the spikes deliberately placed there to discourage him.

it's difficult to see the bird! I like the colors of the constructions, the perspective you chose is also interesting, well done,
smarcell (19965) 2012-05-06 6:49
I have to say that the bird on the light is not the first thing that one see in this picture...
Anyway it is a quite good composition, with strong saturated colours, enhanced by the direct sunlight and the blue sky.
I like the wide angle view.

simple,arranged composition of the fantastic play of colors,best regards,

A simple composition but beautifully harmonious; the receding line of the roofs making an unusual diagonal which produces a fine sense of perspective.
I was only looking at some beach huts that I photographed a couple of years ago; it was a miserable, cold day and does not bring the cheerfulness that this shot illicits. Maybe I will post it some time, just as a contrast!
My warm regards,

Marvellous warm vs cold colour contrasts between the blue, orange & cyan. Good upward pov and repetition of simple patterns & shapes, & superb sharpness & lighting contrasts. Have a great Sunday!

your viewpoint has created an interesting composition with the wooden huts appearing to reach into the sky. the contrast in colours of the blue sky and the huts is fantastic. excellent sharpness.

yes, i remember a similar photo that you posted of these same subject. I enjoyed viewing them back then as i do now.
a very vibrant scene, as the bright orange is a color we don't see very often.
good details too.
enjoy your day

Wonderful strong colours and a photo full of fine tiny details, great !

Superbe cadrage et magnifique lumičre mais ce sont surtout les couleurs qui font la grande force de cette splendide photo.

Again a lovely detail in an original POV. Great colors and high quality. Well taken!

Hello Brian - Beach huts make a fabulous subject and here is a superb capture in your own distinctive style. Shapes and beautiful colour-blocking all against a richly saturated sky. I love the little bit of rust! Warm regards rosemary

I've heard of "Bird on a Wire" but not "Bird on a Light" before!
But the simple, strong composition and the vibrant colours and contrasts in this picture make it a very fine image. Excellent perspective, perfect exposure and stunning sharpness.

back from a long WE and catching up with your posts
Like a lot the one posted today and even more this one, excellent
Colors, downward perspective of the roofs in the compo, very luminous, perfect color saturation
Bravo Brian, another splendid one

Striking colours and POV, the crow seems quite at home there
annjackman (21899) 2012-05-08 7:49
Beach huts are a favourite of mine with their quirky looks and summery paintwork. This is a creative view of what looks like quite new beach huts. Excellent,
Kind Regards, Ann

This is a stunning isolation of colorful facade against the beautiful sky. The hard bold lines and tonal range are awesome creating fine graphism.
Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend.

A nice POV on these beach cabins. Great colours, beautiful sky, excellent sharpness.
Have a nice day,
josepmarin (58359) 2012-05-19 2:55
a good POV in order to obtain a nice escape of lines of these colored beach huts, whose vivid colors are outlined on a blue magnificent sky.
It is a composition with a great chromatic power, a good graphical effect, and a beautiful simplicity.
A nice work.
