Amazing shot, the colours are stunning, and the placement of the umbrella is perfect ... I hope Mary didn't meet with an unfortunate fate. I like to think that she out there somewhere with the wind in her sails "Blowing in the wind" ... :-)

Peter, this is your 3rd image with an umbrella ( in your recent posts) each are so different from the other but all are Wonderful!
@Marthe replied: Don't be afraid.. keep them coming! :-)
@CreativeIsland replied: There's something cool about the geometry of umbrellas. I'm afraid I'm going to be posting a few more.

It is almost like the bright sky is coming from inside the umbrella. I like how you have the umbrella's bottom (or top) and its reflection on the cool super.
@CreativeIsland replied: It definitely took a bit of experimenting with the tripod to get the camera at the right angle. Of course with each passing second the light is changing. Thanks for the comment, Laura.

That sky and reflection are something else, throw in that umbrella....and wow! I am not sure how you did it, but the execution of this shot is near perfect. Great creativity again, Peter.
@KWirtanen replied: Fairly easy for you, and fairly easy for me, must be two different things. :) Awesome shot.
@CreativeIsland replied: Hi Kent. The execution of the shot was actually fairly easy. Of course, you can't always predict a great sunset, but the umbrella part was fairly easy because on this particular shoreline the water is very shallow for quite a distance (less than 15 cm deep for the first 20 m or so). This allowed the umbrella to sit still without moving for the duration of the exposure.

Outstanding sky and placement of the umbrella.

I suspect Mary Poppins met an unfortunate fate. No sign of her, just her umbrella.

Sad, very sad.

The title was inspired by a comment made by Jenny in a previous umbrella post. You'll see a few more umbrella posts in the future.
