Winter sunshine on the colourful beach huts that line the eastern edge of the pebble beach in the town of Seaford in East Sussex, England. Summer seems a long way off in January in the northern hemisphere but the days are gradually getting longer.

You are right the days are getting longer, but they don't seem to be getting any warmer:-) You have framed the composition well, making good use of the vertical format. The saturated tones of the beach huts look splendid under the lovely toned sky. Superb sharpness.

Good morning Brian,
Yes, it is nice that the days actually do appear to be becoming a little longer just now and that there's often a good bit more light around.
And it is the light which you have caught perfectly in this lovely shot.
Excellent composition which has obviously been well studied and thought out, whether by careful camera work at the time or with painstaking care in cropping - knowing you, probably both! Lovely warm colours from the low winter sunlight, your usual fabulous sky and stunning sharpness and detail.

It is a summer feeling indeed that one gets when looking at these brightly coloured beach huts. I like your angle of view and the line of diagonal in your composition. Luckily for us we are in the middle of summer here, but our winter time will come soon enough ;-)

Happy New Year to you and yours. Apologies that it's so late in the piece but I've been away in Malaysia.
What a beautiful day for January! You wouldn't get it that sunny in July! Fantastic rich colours, beautiful graphism and exceptional sharpness. Great job.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day

da un soggetto apparentemente semplice, sei riuscito a creare una bellissima immagine, con una superba resa cromatica.
Compliments my friend!

Good Morning Brian,
Seaford is a place I used to visit, many years ago. My college friend lived there.
It really doesn't look like January with the bright colours and the blue sky.
This shot has your hallmarks of clarity and colour saturation. It is beautifully composed with a strong sense of perspective.
Have a good day,

Missing the sun and the blue sky?

Creative capture of the waiting colorful huts with great colors and sharpness

your photos are easily recognizable in the small thumbnails, you certainly have a style that can be noticed a mile away.
beautiful sharpness and overall quality of the image.
clear and well illuminated.
the sky is awesome too.
smart compo, with precise lighting.
one of your best

I really love this photo!
You were really inspired by these colourful huts, going close enough to create a very cool geometric interpretation.
The light is fabulous and brings a lot of character to your image, just as the sky that also contributes to enrich the mood of the scene.
