Pier and Pillars Brighton

This pier was opened in 1866, but has been closed since 1975 and following a couple of fires is now beyond repair and slowly falling apart. It was a freezing cold February morning when I took this picture. The sun briefly appeared and bathed the surf with beautiful light. I forgot all about the cold whilst running about the beach taking various images of the pier. The vertical posts are part of the now destroyed pier promenade. They stand like sentinels over the body of the pier.
