Hi Achim,
Wonderful POV, great perspective and very nice colours. Nice game of shadows and light.
Very well done,

The shadows are dark like very deep holes! I enjoy that effect with the repetition! A compo of umbrella very original!

Nice shots and the pattern made by the shadow is awesome and unthinkable to shots...

Hi Achim. I like the repetition and the shadow play. I would have preferred a vertical composition so as to focus the shot on two lines of shadows and not have to cut some og the circles. Great effect, nevertheless and great sharpness. Well seen, Yvonne

Hi dear friend,
sun will always remain on of the most spectacular photo subject. Nice play of shadows in this beautiful photo. TFS
Best wishes,

This delightful composition amuses me because at first glance the bottom edges of the umbrellas all seemed to converge with the horizon and I wasn't sure what I was seeing:) Then my eyes came to their senses and started enjoying the shadow circles and the line-up of umbrellas on the empty beach. Very engaging, and fascinating to see this scene without people!

Hi Achim,
What a good play of shadows! Awesome patterns on the sand looking like many holes where the light fell! Excellent composition and capture! Bravo! Annie

Hy Achim!
Great shot and perspective.

Halo Achim
Die kommen wie "UFO's" und diese sonenschirme gefalen mir sher gut
Gutes ort wo ich gut ausruhen konnte

what a very good timing you have for these multiple circular shadows,
more than 101 Dalmatian Sand, hehehehe!
cheers bro!

Hi Achim,

That's a different view of a beach, very relaxing, I like it.
Good POV, perspective and composition, and a great capture of the shadows.
Beautiful shot!

Greetings, Nel

Hi Achim
You must be a real globetrotter when I read all the countries you have visited.That's a very strategic point of view you chose there. I love that alternance of paraasols and shadows on a deserted beach. Very interesting depth of field, nice colors maybe a bit too dark.
Great work

Hi Achim,
Very nice peaceful shot...
I love it.
Thanks for sharing.
