Deal Pier, Power From Above

Power From Above was taken back in 2009 at Deal Pier in Kent by weather & Landscape Photographer David Christie, during a violent electrical storm,
The present pier, designed by Sir W. Halcrow & Partners, was opened on 19 November 1957 by the Duke of Edinburgh. Constructed predominantly from concrete-clad steel, it is 1026 ft (311 m) and ends in a three-tiered pier-head, featuring a cafe, bar, lounge, and fishing decks. The lowest of the three tiers is underwater at all but the lowest part of the tidal range, and has become disused. The pier is one of the most popular sport fishing venues in Kent.
