Bexhill De La Warr Pavilion – Sunrise Landscape Photography

Sunrise on Bexhill Seafront

Some landscape photography at Bexhill, at the famous, Art Deco icon that is the De La Warr Pavilion on Bexhill Seafront. It was cold, but the forecast was clear skies and I thought the architecture would lend it self well to the winter sun rising and casting shadows around the form of the buildings. The weather didn’t disappoint, though the sunrise happened so quickly, I almost missed it!

Before the sunrise, a lonely light on the top floor added a nice balance to the reflecting dawn on the glass of the facade of the De La Warr Pavilion. A polariser helped manage the reflections on the windows and the colour.

The architecture is stunning and the silhouette against the rising dawn was absolutely beautiful. It was still far too dark to capture the flag in the wind with a faster shutter speed.

It was difficult to decide on which shot to choose for the sunrise. Luckily I just about got both (I eventually preferred the one below) with the image above capturing the promenade and the one below following the shape of the balcony.

I opened up the aperture a bit and tried to capture the flag perfectly this time, with a shutter of 1/30. I left the sun out of this shot, to focus more in on the lighting on the architecture.

Once the sun had come up, I revisited the Pavilion for a second shot. The light coming through the windows creates a beautiful pattern on the blank side of the building.
