A wonderfully evocative set of the seaside in a winter storm (OK, it's still autumn but it looks like winter...). I lived in Brighton for a few years, was there when the West Pier closed in 1975. Subsequently lived in Weymouth for a while. The grey sky, the crashing waves, water flowing onto the esplanade... you've caught the feel of it superbly.

Hard to pick favourites, but if pushed it's Nos. 2 and 4 for the power of the sea, No. 7 for its bleakness of the beach and distant seafront and No. 8 for capturing the magnificent decay and desolation of a once grand old lady.

A great set and I really like the first four.

(Was it a good test of Pentax WR or did the gear have some extra protection?)

Thanks all - as another tog came up to me and said only 'mad dogs and photographers' come out on a day like this! It was great!

Pentax WR only! The issue was more about keeping spray and rain off the front of the lens.

Boy they really convey the conditions - great shooting - difficult to pick favourites, they just work so well together as a set

A wonderfully atmostpheric set of images, Andy. I particularly like the structures in 6, 8, 9, 10 (6 most strikingly), but the first four work mighty well too - with delicately subdued colours to boot, bringing a touch of softness in contrast with the raging weather.
