Naples Beach


I almost never lie on a beach.  I walk the beach with a camera.
But, clearly I am in the minority.

A tough assignment, Jack!
Even in England, where the climate is more often suited to walking than to sitting still, you would be in the minority.

Make that a minority of two.

Great photos!

Good Lord, Naples beaches are usually quite empty. Or maybe I just haven't been there in a long time. Lots of fun colors! Have you been to the nude beach?

Luis Gomez said...

Great shots Jack. Love how colorful they are. Not to say how it makes me want to be next to the ocean. ;)

I love beaches -- when they're empty!! Great place to go with a camera though!! Great shots for the day as always, Jack, and they are colorful!!

Sharon Anck said...

That is a very busy beach and I can tell there was a nice sea breeze at the time you took these shots.

RedPat said...

Not my idea of fun to be sitting there either!

Excellent captures. It's been years since I've been on an oceanfront beach.

A busy place, and this in May...

Stefan Jansson said...

Your idea is the better one. These days I prefer to walk back and forth on the beaches.

I like all the colors you've captured. Melanoma cured me of any desire for sun bathing.

These pictures are terrific. Are you familiar with Gray (Grey?) Malin's photographs? Yours remind me a bit of his. Thanks for sharing! A Fan in Sarasota

I like the colorful umbrellas.

Halcyon said...

I only lie on the beach if I have the shade of an umbrella. Otherwise I like to be in the water.

Quite crowded already...

These scenes are from this year? When I consider the contrast between this and some other parts of the country. . .!!!

I'm with you Jack…but, I really don't even like to take my camera to the beach. Too much sand. (I had a horrible experience years ago where I was climbing a sand dune in MI with my old film camera "securely" positioned over my neck and shoulder. The strap gave way….and the camera plunged into the sand. Believe it or not, it was cleaned and worked without problems.) Best not to lie on the beach….just tell the truth.

We have +9C, so this looks fantastic ….
