I love taking photos at sunset, my first ‘good’ photo was at sunset, so I guess that was what got me hooked. These two are especially interesting as the West Pier in Brighton has now completely collapsed. The Pier was closed in 1975 but tours were offered until part of the Pier collapsed in a storm at the end of 2002.
My first photo is from 2002 and shows a murmuration of starlings coming to roost in the concert hall.
In 2003 there were two fires which destroyed the concert hall and there have been subsequent collapses due to storms and small fires.
My second photo is of the pier in 2008 showing the bare skeleton which remained then.
A further part of the pier was demolished in 2010 however there are plans by The West Pier Trust to rebuild the pier in the future.
I have now uploaded 3 (!) other posts relating to this challenge & tomorrow is Friday!
