There is nothing to be afraid of
it is only the wind
changing to the east
it is only your father the thunder
your mother the rain

Always a work of art with your photography, Sharon. Hauntingly beautiful, this could grace the pages of a magazine or book, or be used in an advertisement. So many storylines from one shot. Amazing

oh just lovely, almost makes me feel like having a quick cry, i'm not sure why...
5 Jan 2010 5:25am
Great movement of the water in the left side and the street of this other, like catching this girl and hers thinkings...just the wind yes sir!
5 Jan 2010 5:41am
Beautiful verse for this photo, I like the (unusual) color and misterious suggestion of the composition.
5 Jan 2010 6:23am
Ah très beau. j'adore les parapluies
5 Jan 2010 6:35am
Oh, what a lovely lovely image. Beautiful handling of that red umbrella !!!

5 Jan 2010 11:16am
I like the touch of red
5 Jan 2010 11:29am
There's something very oniric here, I like this red umbrella against this grey/blue sea and sky. Like a sun in the horizon.
A very Happy New Year to you Sahron and my best wishes.
5 Jan 2010 11:36am
Wonderful image. Love the contrast
5 Jan 2010 11:51am
a lonely planet with lonely humans? No, there are dugs on the water. You're not alone. But the idea is just a good one. Have a nice day, a.h.lex.
5 Jan 2010 12:22pm
Nice, the viginette works really well here!
5 Jan 2010 12:29pm
A haunting picture to go with Margaret's poetry. Well done Sharon! ;-)
5 Jan 2010 12:50pm
Lovely composition! The red spot of the umbrella adds some magic here.
5 Jan 2010 1:01pm
Awesome ! I like colors and composition which bring melancholic atmosphere.

5 Jan 2010 1:27pm
Ecellent picture where the red paraluie conraste with the blue image. everything is in the suggestion and it happens here a lot of feelings and sadness.
The color surprised me, but with the red umbrella I see how you couldn't resist. The ducks are always a joy for me. We rarely see them near our home.
5 Jan 2010 2:19pm
love umbrella shots! bravo.
5 Jan 2010 2:21pm
A delightful view amid a day of gloom, peaceful place but cold wet weather, red and blues, flock and solitude... what an image of contrasts and exceptional mood! Wonderful choice of tonality and vignette to heighten the mood! Beautiful work Sharon... easily my pic of the day!
5 Jan 2010 2:24pm
Hello , superbe cliché , bravo pour la compositio et le mariage des couleurs .
Meilleurs Voeux 2010 , Phil.
5 Jan 2010 2:57pm
Superb image Sharon, love the red umbrella as it brings the shot alive
5 Jan 2010 3:57pm
Superb ! I love the colors and composition .
5 Jan 2010 3:58pm
Funny because Sara has posted the same umbrella there two days: http://simonnet.aminus3.com/image/2010-01-02.html
5 Jan 2010 4:03pm
Great framing and colours, good job.
5 Jan 2010 4:12pm
Fabulous composition, Sharon. The juxtaposition of the red with the blue-gray is exquisite.
hunting, tranquil, and peaceful at the same time. A great image. Excellent composition
5 Jan 2010 4:13pm
I love umbrellas in a photograph composition ! Love the red one in the blue winter atmosphere !
5 Jan 2010 4:26pm
This is simply beautiful...composition, colors and feeling!
I like it a lot.
5 Jan 2010 4:29pm
I like this red umbrella in all this blue rhapsody :)) It breaks up all monotony and melancholy !
5 Jan 2010 4:37pm
The little red shelter from the wind and rain. The muted colors here are quite nice.
5 Jan 2010 5:01pm
Beautiful. I like the subdued colors - lightened a bit by the red umbrella abd the severly vignetted corners.
5 Jan 2010 5:37pm
Beautiful color red in this composition ! Great !
5 Jan 2010 6:00pm
Sad yet hopeful. Beautiful as always...
I'm reminded of a piece of fruit, Sharon, for some reason! I want to reach out and pick it up and eat it....
5 Jan 2010 6:16pm
I love the red inato the blue
5 Jan 2010 6:26pm
Nothing to be afraid of, and yet, we need the umbrella to feel more secure. This one could turn & turn on her shoulder, i can feel her quiet, in deep thoughts, her eyes over the horizon & facing mom & dad's return souvenir (rain & thunder - and i also see another family sign with the ducks family). I like the lines, the curve on the right echoing the umbrella's. No, nothing to be afraid of, and that sounds so cool. Thanks for the story your compo & soft tones offer, Sharon ~
5 Jan 2010 6:38pm
This is a simply beautiful composed shot :)
5 Jan 2010 8:03pm
wonderful shot - everything about it is lovely

5 Jan 2010 9:34pm
wonderful mood to this. love the colors.
5 Jan 2010 9:48pm
A classic, melancholy shot.
5 Jan 2010 9:52pm
Most of the time you don't see people carry an red umbrella, as a matter of fact, it's probably hard to find a red umbrella. Yet, this picture will never be so artful without a red umbrella! Did you plan that red umbrella, Anna? :-)
5 Jan 2010 10:29pm
Oops, I mean Sharon. :-) I was talking to Anna from my office minutes ago.... :-)
5 Jan 2010 10:31pm
Something enigmatic about umbrellas . . one like this transforms a photograph so delightfully.
5 Jan 2010 11:58pm
The shot is great, not doubt about that, but what really impressed me was the line of the birds on the water. It has added a lot to the composition!
6 Jan 2010 12:35am
Sublim one Sharon. Just love it!! The compo is simply perfect with ducks and this orange umbrella.
6 Jan 2010 12:41am
I think I have just realized what makes you photographs such beautiful art. It's those small quote/poems that you write... usually they carry the whole essence of your photograph, Sharon.
6 Jan 2010 1:33am
well caught !
6 Jan 2010 1:37am
wowowowow. beautiful shot, my friend and I have been dying to do a shot like this for months now (but neither of us have a red umbrella) would this, by any chance be a reference to the Mayday Parade umbrella man?
6 Jan 2010 1:52am
superb photo - well thought out composition with a great vision! you used the dim light to maximum effect here and the red umbrella stands out well from amongst the gloom...
6 Jan 2010 2:26am

6 Jan 2010 2:27am
I agree with everyone, you have captured the mood so well in this shot. I know I'm late but, Happy New Years!

6 Jan 2010 8:12am
Wonderful composition. Vignette and colours contrast gives a nice poetic feel to it!
6 Jan 2010 8:35am
Only the wind, only the rain, but thanks to this beautiful red umbrella to protect us ;) Love the curve where he/she's standing up, and your compo with this wide room for the sea, such serenity in your shot. And yes, Happy New Year Sharon, all the best for U !! xxx
6 Jan 2010 1:08pm

8 Jan 2010 1:26pm
