'Tell me something' by Damian Gadal

Tell me something, a photo by Damian Gadal on Flickr.

If you were to say the word pier to me I'd automatically picture a big pier full of amusements, food, fairground rides etc - mainly because the first place I'd think of is Brighton Pier. However piers aren't always like that, they're usually much simpler affairs like the one featured in this photo. Their simplicity doesn't make them any less interesting to photograph though. I love this picture so much, mainly because of the beautiful sky and how lovely and calm the sea looks. But I also like the people walking on the pier. Where are they going to? Just to the end and back? I wonder what the view of the beach looks like from the end. It looks like two people in the middle have found something that's made them want to stop and is someone near them having their picture taken? I really could look at the picture for ages.


  1. Great blog you have here. Keep at it! :-)

  2. Lovely lovely photo you picked out here! I love going to the beach at sunset, soley for skies like this.

  3. I love piers. In fact I'd go so far as to say I have a thing about them! Of course Brighton Pier where I live but I prefer the burnt out West Pier - it's like a desolate shell but there's something quite beautiful about it. Other favourites include Southwold, Clevedon and Hastings. I've got a whole bit about Weston Super Mare pier in my novel. Okay, I think I've bored you enough now with piers. Great photo!

  4. I love piers as well ... and the image you have here is just gorgeous. I actually love piers so much that I took a photo of one on my honeymoon in the Mayan. I thought I'd share with you:

  5. What a stunning sky! Beautiful shot really makes the pier look even more inviting

  6. Glad to hear you all like this photo. It's rather special isn't it?

    Deer baby - Don't get me started on West Pier I also think it's really beautiful and I love photographing it.

    momma j lee - Wow, that's gorgeous. What a perfect place for a honeymoon.
