Y is for Year, the old one

I'm waving goodbye to 2014 with a long stroll by the sea. The weather is damn cold pretty bracing today but there are welcome glimpses of blue sky and sunlight now and then.

Cambridge Road

Taken on Sunday and, yes, the sky really was that beautiful shade of bright blue!

It's sale time

In the UK, Christmas day is hardly over and then the sales start. Some stores in Brighton opened their doors at 6am today - is that desperation or dedication I ask myself? This is Argos on Western Road, Brighton.
I'm having one of those days when people keep sneaking in front of the camera without me noticing!

Saturday sunset

A lovely pink, red and purple sunset shot through the window. I can't get out on my balcony (builders have pushed bench and plant pots right up to the door) or open the window (yet more scaffolding has appeared) so you'll have to excuse the dirty glass!

A different December

Today's sky is grey and murky and the sea is a dirty beige. This colourful sky and sea shot from the archives was taken on 12 December 2009.
You can see more sky photographs at this week's Skywatch Friday.

Birds in a tree

Eastern side of Norfolk Square, Brighton. I can't make my mind up whether the birds are rooks or not but they're definitely members of the crow family.

Monday was a beautiful day weather-wise with the bonus of a lovely colourful sunset. Sandwiched between two cold, wet and dark days, the warm sunlight was much appreciated!

Two new teas to try

I'm on the look out for a drink-every-day winter tea. I like flavoured black teas, particularly the spicy blends. These 20g sample packs are from the Bluebird Tea Co. shop in Gardener Street, Brighton, and each £3 pack contains enough tea to brew about 10 cups.
