Winner of August's Love Summer, LoveBrighton Flickr Competition

Greetings lovers of Brighton!

It’s hard to believe that summer is over and winter is slowly moving back in! :(

But never fear, we have one more thing to celebrate before autumn starts to chill our cockles, and that’s the winner of our LoveBrighton Flickr competition! The theme for August was Love Summer, LoveBrighton, and we’re delighted to announce the winner is Rob Webb, with his beautiful image of a Brighton summer surfer:

Rob has kindly written a blog about his photograph adventures in Brighton & Hove, and why he loves our wonderful city so much! Rob won a trip on the Brighton Wheel, where he can view the city from on high, round and round, and round again!

Rob sez:

Brighton is simply a fantastic location for photography, not many places offer the diversity of environments and subjects that make up the area. Living here I have easy access to both the urban sprawl and a few minutes drive to get to the peace and tranquillity of the Downs. The vibrant and creative atmosphere make photography in and around the city a joy.

The beach at sunset is one of my favourite places to visit with a camera; there are so many opportunities to capture interesting moments and points in time. The iconic background of the West Pier at low tide has featured more times than I care to mention in my photography, but I will never get bored of taking pictures of it or of people enjoying the sea around it.

And check out this month’s competition theme of Love Eco, LoveBrighton, celebrating all things green about the city and the launch of our brand new Green Guide to Brighton & Hove.

Get snapping the beautiful season of mists and mellow fruitfulness and you could be next month’s winner! :)

‘till next time,
