'Shelter' under the sun!



The October theme for City Daily Photo members is 'Shelter'. Here in Australia one of the biggest dangers is the relentless sun.. there's just too much of it! Some may not see this as a bad thing and when you think of the world situation, the bigger picture, it really isn't.. if you are aware and take precautions. Even though we're in the middle of spring we've already had a few 30/31C days, what better way to protect than with an easy to erect Cancer Council approved Cabana. I would have loved to show a gorgeous umbrella in the rain shot, but right now they're as rare as hen's teeth :) hoping to see some from the Northern Hemisphere bloggers. Happy 1st of October, where has this year gone, take care and stay safe...

  7. Oh goodness, I wish I was there too! What an incredibly rich blue it is too! I adore all the little sun huts, very nice way to have fun and still stay safe too/

  8. Skin cancer is a major problem here in Florida and is growing by leaps and bounds. We need more of these "cabanas."

  12. We are about to get your weather. Too hot, too soon. It was a few weeks ago when we had our first 20 degrees, now 32 coming. The shelters are good, but putting them up is not the problem, it is getting them folded back up that is the hard part.

  13. Sounds like a very sensible idea Grace, I'll try to get a nice rainy umbrella picture for you!

  14. What a very good idea for a day at the beach. I do love going to beach whenever I make my way to California but, I generally only stay out there one to two hours because of all that sun. This would be perfect.

  16. Saw lots of them this summer at the seaside, understand the need for protection, but turning the beach into a campsite? Not sure if I can totally agree with it.....

  17. Dat is genieten als je dit ziet,daar moeten wij weer even op wachten.

  18. Never been a huge sun-lover myself - always prefer it just slightly warm rather than hot - but preferably dry.

  19. Great photo of shelters, Grace. Having just gone through a few weeks of "relentless" sun and heat, I get it!

  20. Good grief. The only time I've seen tents on a beach in England is for protection against rain and gales!

  21. No umbrella's from the Northern Hemisphere, we have a beachlife too at the moment, but without shelters, we embrace the sunshine.

  22. Oh, fantastic choice for this theme, Grace !

  23. Lovely beach shots Grace, there have been a few days good enough for the beach!

  24. 16C top temp today, Grace... Can´t you send some of the warm weather over?
    Great they are from cancer-safe material, I wonder how much "bad rays" I got through my non-protective, normal clothes!
    "...as rare as hen's teeth" :-) Im learning!

  25. The sun has become so dangerous! The problem is we can't go back in time and what's done is done! We didn't pay much attention to the warnings in the 70s or in the 80s and some are paying for it now... :-(

  26. Surely they are very hot inside? You would be amazed at the number of people on French beaches that expose themselves to dangerous amounts of sun - and I've yet to see a covered swimming pool here!

  28. If only it got that hot here we needed those.

  29. Being a Florida native, I can definitely relate to too much sun! If I had been more careful when I was young, I might not be on a first name basis with my dermatologist. I would love to have one of these cabanas. Great post for the theme Grace!

  30. Perfect capture for our Shelter Theme day Grace and I know what you mean about umbrellas- in-the-rain shots .... almost unseen on our streets

  31. Until yesterday, we didn't have much consistent spring sunny warmth. But then it burst forth yesterday today and is expected for several days to come. Love it. And your beach scene could be the tent styles that feature on my Dromana beach.

  32. It kind of seems like defeating the purpose (of being out in the open sea air). But it makes a colorful picture about shelter!
    Greetings from the Negev desert, 34 C today, again.

  33. It does look so cheerful and the little snapshot is so lovely. We are heading into autumn - so far we had wonderful weather here around Lake Geneva / Switzerland.No rain ...yet!

  34. I have seen a lot of umbrellas in my travels, but these are the first beach tents I can remember. Though, you are right, too much sun can be dangerous. I get checked out once a year and might begin going to semi-annually.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I haven't ever seen tents in the sunny beach.. but I understand why you have there these.

  36. I wish I were here! It's a perfect shelter...Arianna

  37. Yes, I wouldn't mind. Not mind at all! ;-)
    Beautiful image.

  38. We sure don't have shelters like these in my area.
