Beach Umbrella



Ocean skies are quite often hazy from all the moisture in the air.  Here is a "typical" beach scene, but then I got to playing around with the camera.



My sister was so excited to get this umbrella for only $10!



While sitting under it I became captivated with the structure, colors and light shining through.



It's fun to experiment with composition too.



All in a "day's work" at the beach!

The best thing about beach umbrellas is to be sitting on your porch at the beach on a windy day --WATCHING all of the people on the beach TRYING to keep those umbrellas from blowing away!!!!! Such amusement!!! ha

You pictured some pretty ones.
Hugs,
Betsy
