West Pier, Brighton

Sunday 23 August 2009; 1417 Hours

[Canon EOS 5D Mark 2 | ISO 400 | 16mm | 1/500 seconds | F/11]

 

This was shot on a day trip to Brighton; I've never visited before and didn't know what to expect but I think I enjoyed the 8 hours I spent there.

 

Not my usual picture and I've processed this with DPP because my PC has been blue-screening lately whenever I load a memory intensive program.

 

From WikiPedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West_pier

 

The West Pier is a pier in Brighton, England. It was built in 1866 by Eugenius Birch and has been closed and deteriorating since 1975, awaiting renovation.

 

It was Brighton's second pier, joining The Royal Suspension Chain Pier of 1823, and it is one of only two Grade I listed piers in the UK, the other being Clevedon Pier.
