Starlings and @ba_i360. Taken last November, some of the starlings broke off from the main groip group that was murmurating around the West Pier to check out the i360. #i360 #bai360 #brightoni360 #nature #murmuration #flock #starlings #brighton

Brighton Swimming Club went for impromptu New Years Day swim today at 3:30 as it was low tide. As it was 3:30 it also meant the sun was low in the sky so the light was really beautiful. Also turns how I have little competition in the club now when it comes to photography 😉 #swimming #wildswimming #brighton

Taken Christmas day 2011

This is not actually want it looks like. The kid is running away form the wave that is about to knock him over. Although the wave dose not look that big but because of the shape of beach its quite easy to dragged back in and as the water is around 5C° 41F° that is not a good thing if you are not used to it.

This is form the Brighton Christmas day swim, the conditions where appalling in 2011. So bad in fact that the event was official called off but that did not stop approximately 100 people going in watched by thousands. Quite a few needed help getting out. One person needed rescuing by Brighton swimming club members, he did walk off the beach to an ambulance but needed help to get there. That is the reason why the Brighton Christmas day swim does not happen anymore.

West Pier will now be premaritally illuminated from the @ba_i360. Unlike when it's been done before it's just white light so you see the Pier’s natural rusty colours. #westpier #pier #brighton #derelict
