T is for Tree

A tall tree of the Christmas variety - so tall that it was impossible to get back far enough to shoot the whole thing. It's part of the Christmas display on the lower floor of Brighton's Churchill Square Shopping Centre.

Rustle, rustle

I love walking through crisp, dry fallen leaves; the sound makes me feel about five years old.

Cream against blue

St Stephen's Church, Montpelier Place, Brighton has a fascinating history including being demolished, moved  and rebuilt on the present site. The Grade II listed building hasn't been used as a church since 1939; these days it's owned by the Brighton Housing Trust (BHT) and is the First Base Day Centre for homeless people.
I shot this yesterday and the sky really was as blue as it looks; the weather was more like August than November!

Sunday morning

Sunshine streaming through windows, a sleeping cat and the anticipation of lunch with friends. Perfect!

Still grey

The weather's still grey and gloomy today - at least grey sky makes a good background for bare branches.

One I made earlier

A sunset from way back in November 2010; it makes a much nicer image than today's actual sky which is grey. Plain grey.
You can see more of today's sky photographs at Skywatch Friday.

R is for Rainclouds

These clouds looked full of rain and threatening but, as often happens here, they drifted harmlessly over Hove and straight out to sea without spilling a drop.

A little further along the road than yesterday - that's Compton Road branching off to the right with The Drove continuing steeply downwards in the centre of the photograph.

Looking down The Drove from the Dyke Road end and yes, the road is as steep as it looks.

Mucky beige

It's wild and windy down by the sea this morning - a mucky beige-coloured sea whipped up into frothy waves.
