Wide Open Beach
My lace umbrella on Deadman's Beach, Stradbroke Island. It's been nearly a year since I took this photo, and the umbrella still smells of sun, sea and sand...
As peaceful as the photo may look, its taking was anything but. Just seconds after I'd pressed the shutter, a gale blew the umbrella across the beach, very nearly into the surf. I had to run very hard to retrieve it and may or may not have let out a few shrieks of anguish in the process. I'm sure I made quite a spectacle of myself on the beach that day!
