Shoreham at Sunset by Zoe HuttonShoreham at Sunset by Zoe Hutton

I took the photo on the day the new footbridge opened. It had been the perfect day with a great community atmosphere and the sunset just rounds it off – it was a really lovely event. - Zoe Hutton


Tree Ride, Alexandra Park by Toby ShawTree Ride, Alexandra Park by Toby Shaw

Travelling around Hastings in a small van, with three skaters including myself and a bmxer, we came across this slanted tree over a stream of water. I remember it was pretty late at night, but the van enabled us to light up areas for skating and riding at night.

So we lit up this spot, I set up flashes to take a photo, but the generator started to cut out just as we were all set up. A police car in the park drove over as they saw the lights and thought we were up to no good.

Needless to say when we explained what we were doing they were really surprised, and seemed really happy to see that we were doing something productive. They even shone their little headlight torches on the tree to give the rider a bit more light!

As soon as he landed this jump the generator cut out and it was nothing but dark. He was lucky the lights packed up after he landed it and not before or he wouldn’t have been able to see. Luckily I got the photo shown here. - Toby Shaw


The rain was so heavy on this day that we ran out to get the dog walked in between the showers. I always have my little point and shoot camera with me and the sun sneaked through the inky clouds for a moment and lit up the surf and cliffs – it was very dramatic.

I have a documentary photography project that I’m doing this year,I’m capturing the the undercliff in Rottingdean and Saltdean to see how it changes throughout the seasons. My blog, if you’d like to see how it goes, is - Paul Rowlands
