Queen's Pier

                                   Peachy


Wet feet on the beach time again, but I wasn't the only one. Another angle of the pier, looking back towards Queen's promenade. Sadly as I've mentioned before the pier has been closed to the public since 1991 and in much need of repair, but you are free to walk below, underneath and around it. Gone are the days when you can shop at the kiosks, board for travel or ride the tram along the pier.  Still one of the town's most recognizeable features though, and most photographed.

Looks like a fun place to explore. Too bad nobody is willing to restore it!

I love being on a pier early in the morning.

It's sad that no one will restore such a wonderful place.
I'll bet it is a great place to take early morning photos too.

It's beautiful in this light. It should be restored.

Such a pity that this pier cannot be used for a walk anymore. We have the same problem with the pier in Scheveningen/ the Hague. We used to walk there and by nice things in one of the shops. But now it is in need of repair and there is no money for it.

Gorgeous light! Low tide is perfect for great reflections like these.

Anywhere near the water is fine with me. Probably could get lots of great shots from underneath the pier.
