I would stay away from that beach by a huge distance. I hate crowds !! Diane

Oh my gosh, everyone in the city must be at the beach.

Sylvia K said...

Lovely beach and view, but I'd probably enjoy it more from a distance as well! Wonderful, colorful shot, JM!!

I love all of the colorful umbrellas.

can't blame them from trooping to the beach to enjoy the summer sun.

The sea looks lovely, but the beach is too crowded for me.

This reminds me of the comment of the old American baseball player, Yogi Berra, who commented about Coney Island that it is so crowded that no on e goes there any more.

JM said...

@Dave: LOL!

This is an amazing scene! I do love the light - was it taken in the evening? The light on the people makes them look like they could almost be mannequins.

Lowell said...

Well, it certainly is colorful but I'm not sure I've ever seen so many people crowded on one beach! Amazing. Scary, even!

La Principessa Errante said...

Wow - that does not look like fun, way too crowded for me. But what a great photo op. The colors of the umbrellas, the sun glistening off the water, what a great shot.

Fabulous image JM, love all the colourful umbrellas..this looks so much like a summer scene from our beaches here in Perth..it's amazing how many sun worshipers are still around, excellent shot!

I find beaches crowded like that a little frightening ... it suggests the weather is tooo hot.
