Photographer's Note

A panoramic view of the Brighton beach from the pier.
Brighton is a town in the city of Brighton and Hove in East Sussex on the south coast of Great Britain. It is England's most populous seaside resort. Eight million tourists a year visit Brighton. The town also has a substantial business conference industry. The seafront has bars, restaurants, nightclubs and amusement arcades, principally between the piers. Being less than an hour from London by train has made the city a popular destination. Brighton's beach, which is a sand-free shingle beach, although it is sand when you go into the sea, has been awarded a blue flag. The Monarch's Way long-distance footpath heads west along the seafront above the beach.
Brighton is considered to be one of the UK's premier night-life hotspots and is also associated with many popular music artists.There are also live music venues including the Concorde 2, Brighton Centre and the Brighton Dome, where ABBA received a substantial boost to their career upon winning the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest.
