A Winter's Sunset


I recently included a post about a beautiful sunset in Brighton I saw a few weeks ago. I mentioned in that post that it was the best sunset I had ever seen since living here. But then I saw this one and it blew me away! On this particular day, the sea was so calm, probably the calmest I've ever seen it. There was even a swimmer in the sea in the month of December without a wet suit. Pip and I had been out and we were walking home via the seaside when we were lucky enough to witness this magical sunset. People were on the beach just watching it, a lot of people taking photographs and everyone soaking up the serene atmosphere. These winter sunsets are stunning and even though I complain about how early it gets dark, at least parents with little ones have the chance to view these gorgeous sunsets before bedtime. They are not always like this. Often the sea is rough, the wind is too chilly and the cloud hides the sun. But on this particular day the sky was clear and there were beautiful pink and orange tones that lit up along the horizon and spread across the sky after sunset! We watched the sun until it disappeared out of sight. 'Where has it gone, Mummy?' asked Pip. That was a difficult one to explain to a three year old...! I'm sharing a few photos from that afternoon. All were taken on my iPhone and none have been edited. 









What's your favourite photo? Have you seen a stunning sunset this winter?

  1. I keep meaning to pop down to the beach to capture the sunset. I'm waiting for a clear night. Great shots! 📸 The 2nd is my favourite where the sun appears to be popping out from between the beach houses ❤️ #mysundayphoto

  4. The iPhone can turn out some incredible shots and these are so elegant with the tiny silhouettes and last gasp sunbeams.

    1. Thanks very much. If I had known how stunning it would be I would have brought my SLR with me but an iPhone makes a good alternative :)
