We went away for a couple of days after Easter to the south coast.  We were so lucky with the weather, saw a couple of gold ‘supercars’ which I think were owned by the sheik who owns the pier at Eastbourne (and presumably a couple of the hotels given the gold lion touches.

On the final day just before we left we managed to make it on to the pier.  There was no need to scramble for photos because we were the first visitors on there so I had all the time in the world to take some photos.

    How brilliant to have the pier to yourselves! 🙂

  3. It’s so stunning isn’t it? That photo gives it a bit of a haunting look. Hope you had a great time!

  4. The black and white in this image makes it look so calm. We were in Hastings last week and the pier is being rebuilt, I hope to visit that and the Eastbourne one again soon #MySundayPhoto

  5. It works so well in black and white. Wonderful capture. I bet it was lovely having it all to yourself, even for a little while. #MySundayPhoto

  8. Love the photo, it looks like an old postcard and how lucky were you to have it all to yourselves?


  9. How amazing to be the only people on the pier. Were you guys up at the crack of dawn?!
    Love this shot in its Black & White state with the contrasts of the pier.
    Hope you enjoyed time time away

  10. There is something quite gratifying about getting to a spot before anyone else. It reminds me of holidays pre-kids when I would get up at the crack of dawn to take a picture of a bridge or a square somewhere random in Europe while it was still deserted. Those days are long gone now, though!
