Bandstand in the snow

I’ve wanted to do this shot for ages. Same as everyone else I suppose, but my take on it in half light and snow

 

Beautiful and truly unique, Brighton Bandstand is located on Brighton's vibrant seafront, after having been restored to its original specification and reopened in 2009.

History

Designed by Phillip Lockwood, Brighton Borough Surveyor, and completed in 1884 the Western Bandstand is considered to be one of the finest examples of a Victorian bandstand still surviving in England today. The original design featured a bridge linking the upper promenade with the Bandstand which was removed in the late 1970’s. The ground floor was used as public conveniences until 2003 when vandalism forced their closure.
