"Life is about using the whole box of crayons"..

 

Taken last weekend on the beach when the weather was wintry grey, helping Aimee with pics for a weekly Instagram project she is participating in. It was about colour and those who know Aimee know that colour is her thing, from the rainbow umbrella right down to the yellow Doc Martens that got swimmingly soaked before she had time to retreat from the incoming barrage of waves :)

Below the shot she edited and used for her project, tres dramatic! A few minutes after I snapped these shots we were running for the car as the rain sped across the water towards us, exhilarating! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, see you Monday. Happy Friday, take care and stay safe..

  2. Those waves are devilishly sneaky; I've got wet feet many times when photographing the sea! The umbrella looks great against those stormy skies.

  5. Dramatic and beautiful shots. They could be used as a book cover for a novel, they imply a story, perhaps of romance or mystery.

  10. These are all great photos but my favorites are the first one for the bright colors and the last one for the dramatic sky and splash of color. It must have been fun doing this.
