"Vamos a la playa" in monochrome shadows

Where did the summer go? John and I spent an hot, sunshinny day on this beach at Öland in Sweden last summer.

For more monochrome pictures, please visit Ailenis Monochromen Weekly Blog.
And for more shadow shot, please visit Hey Harriet.

I adore this picture. It turned out so good. The sand looks so white and I love the striped chairs.

I miss the beach and summer too.

Irene said...

Hei natteranglere! Takk for hyggelig hilsen! Joda, vi har surra oppe lenge i kveld. Ketil har sett på en film mens jeg har dykket litt ned i arkivet. Satt på signatur så de kan presenteres etter hvert ... og rødvinsglasset har ikke stått langt unna! Koser oss i høstmørket vi også, masser av stearinlys og fyr på peisen. I morgen blir det "full pakke" ... tatt opp lammecarré (Mmmmm). Men nå er det natta på oss. I morgen skal vi begynne å tapsetsere soverommet vårt så vi kan ikke sove bort dagen. Sov godt begge to!

Klem fra Horgens :o)

James said...

This is a really beautiful picture.
The title reminds me of what we used to say at my job in California when the work day was over. Vamanos a la playa.

...og til neste år kan det gjentas.
Det er det gode med årstider. Alltid noe å glede seg til!

Nesten så jeg kan kjenne sanden mellom tærne! Flott bilde!

Irene said...

Hei Lene! Vet ikke om det var rødvinen eller at det var så sent, men jeg glemte jo å kommentere bildet ditt i mitt forrige innlegg! Det var ikke meningen! Herlig bilde fra Öland. Har aldri vært der så det er kanskje derfor jeg ikke forbinder stedet med sol og strand! Virkelig lekkert i monochrome.
Jeg har nå fått øynene opp for de gode gammeldagse sort/hvitt-bildene takket være dere! Ha en toppers lørdadg! Det er sol og nå skal vi snart ut på tur!

Aileni said...

Really, Lene - you excel.

Donald said...

Det er morsomt at du finder motiver som tager sig så godt ud i monochrome. Dette billede kan af en eller anden grund ikke få mig til at længes efter stranden, men får mig til at tænke på tomme stole, missing persons.

lodolite said...

a very suggestive photo!
ciao simona

rh-bilder said...

Supert bilde! Komposisjon og lys/skygger var meget bra. Well done!

ElinSire said...

Nydelig, Lene! Der...akkurat der kunne jeg tenke meg å bare slenge med ned en liten stund :) Utrolig bra SH-behandling, bare elsker kontrastene og lyset.

Rødvin og Winnerbäck hørtes ut som en særdeles hyggelig kombinasjon :) Kos dere i helgen :)

(jammen meg har ikke sola tittet frem ;) utrolig!)

Klem fra elva :)

Tunes Photo said...

Nydelig bilde! Ser nesten ut som om dere venter på torden!

liven said...

Knallfint bilde!!!
Innom for å ønske deg en fin helg Lene :o)

Lucy Corrander said...

Oh Lene! My eyes have almost got stuck open in surprise. What a startling and fantastic photo. I know all yours are good but I bet you are specially pleased with this.

Lucy

Nadia Mendes said...

So nice! Summer will come very soon. And I'm going to Norway in July! ... See you!

Carver said...

That's a wonderful shot. Takes me back to summer days at the beach.

Sylvia said...

I also will remain in that beach, contemplating the sunset. Excellent photo.

Anne said...

Olla la :-) take me there, i en sexy bikini med en kald perlende kald hvitvin!! men nå har det seg vel slik at en lettere solbrent tykkfallen gråhåra en havner med på samme tur..., så synet blir vel ike så fortryllende, he he
Vakkert et bilde fra en årstid vi sikkert alle lengter til.
Skal i grunn ikke klage da, det fine været vi har hatt er i det siste, men i går du kom regnet. Litt typisk når det er helg du.

Hatt innedag med vasking i dag jeg, og jammen trengs det det også ja. Resten av kvelden da skla benyttes til kos med god mat og rødvin og en god varm armkrok.

Ha en trivleig aften dere to turtlene også. Klem fra Anne

kilauea poetry said...

Wonderful scene..perfect light and shadows-

Tone said...

Sommer og sol! ÅÅå, hvor jeg lengter!
Et nydelig B&W med en herlig vinkel.
Ha en fin lørdagskveld.
Tone

John said...

Looks like a great spot, and it has made a very effective b&w shot.

Samson said...

what a beauty :) great shot, perfect for monochrome

Have a nice weekend

moe lauher said...

This is a wonderful photograph. The shadows, the sand, the chairs and the dune grass evoke a taste of sea air.

Ida said...

Utrolig fint!
Å fotografere betyr "å tegne med lys", og det har du virkelig gjort her. Dette er kunst...
Vakkert! :)

awarewriter said...

Talk about high contrast dramatic -- this is a great photo.

Robin said...

Such a gorgeous spot - it makes me long to throw down my work and head for a deserted beach!

Lachezar said...

This is just gorgeous! Fantastic monochrome! And thanks for your visit!

Pam said...

This is a really great shot, Lene. I love it in black and white, the look is so dramatic.

RuneE said...

Den der går rett hjem! "Enkel" fin komposisjon med en dybde og teksturi sanden som var nydelig.

Hey Harriet said...

This is a stunning photo and works so perfectly in black and white! I love it! Thanks so much for joining in Shadow Shot Sunday :)

christina said...

Vilken skön bild i mono!

David C. said...

Great monochrome! The D90 is a great camera--I have one too--but even more important is your photographic vision.

Sweet Repose said...

What a perfect shot...color would not have done it justice, as this B&W shows...looks warm and inviting!

@nemonen said...

En annorlunda och intressant bild.

maryt/theteach said...

Lene, real professional looking photo! Perfect beach scene! I posted for Shadowe Shot Sunday! :)

Maelka said...

Wonderful photo of the summer. Will feel warm and the shadows are amazing.

Giovanni said...

Wonderful b&w! I love the light and the shadaows on the sand!

Jen said...

Awesome!
Happy SSS to you.

webruci said...

Otroligt snyggt fotat. Men det ser ut som om idyllen snart kommer att förändras av ett annalkande oväder.

Jonny Hamachi said...

Wonderful Contrast. Incredible Image.

VALKYRIEN said...

Those were the days ja! Flott foto, med lekre kontraster!
Så nå er det bare å vente på alle disse vintermotivene da! Men foreløpig er det jo bare vått og grått!

Mama Zen said...

I absolutely love this picture!

Paula said...

Get me to the playa! Actually, I live near the Gulf of Mexico, but I wish it was day instead of night and that I was sitting in one of those chairs. It's a great photo.

Morten Pedersen said...

I really needed a warm summer picture now here I am sitting in November and it is raining and it is dark.

~~Randi, Hverdagsprat~~ said...

Øland er vakkert - og det er jammen dette bildet, også. Duft av sjø og sommer:)

Vaggelis said...

what a scenery!!!

Dorte said...

What a beautiful summer shadow shot!

mononeil said...

OH sunshine. So there is such a thing. We are having a whole lot of rain and major flooding. Wonderful composition and contrast in this image. Nice one.

In Three Rivers, Michigan said...

Avery dramatic photo, I love the light.

Clorivak said...

Omigoodness this is so gorgeous..you are very talented..wow!

Quasi Serendipita said...

Gorgeous. I wish I was there!

Dragonstar said...

I love this striking mono. It wouldn't have as much impact in colour. You've so much gradation in the shadow - in such bright light it can't have been easy.

AB said...

No Spanish beach here. Those are the long shadows of Sweeden-

Virginia said...

Lene,
I agree with Paula, this does look like the Gulf coast. I wish I were right there wiggling my toes in the warm sand. This is an outstanding image in so many ways.

Sagatun said...

Kjempe flott bilde:)
