Beach Brollies & Boats

By TrevBatWCC    
Walking along the Boulevard de la Croisette in Cannes, and looking out to sea, I was attracted by the different coloured beach brollies on the many private areas of beach. Some nice boats out there too sailing on the Mediterranean! Smile
Had our annual Audio Visual Competition at the Camera Club last night, and I came first! I have to admit though, I didn't have much competition as there were only four entries… Wink We're trying to encourage more members to have a go at these, but they are very time-consuming in putting them together, which I think puts a lot of members off. My entry was of a tour around Blists Hill Victorian Museum, of which I showed several images on here back in June. The judge commented it would make him want to visit there, which I think helped! Smile

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging.

I love the juxtaposition. The boats fighting for space whilst the sun worshippers are also fighting for space.

Thanks for sharing Trevor

Very different to a couple of months previously, I suspect. Now the real colour is all man-made.

Goodness, Trev, those brollies are very close, no personal space whatsoever Sad Congratulations in the competition.

What an amazing sight. Fancy having a massive yacht only to have to share the sea with everyone else's. Grin

I like this a lot, Trev, the boats and brollies seem to have a linear connection, it works really well.
