Three from me, very hard to choose. The first, a full moon over Sandcastle Beach, St. Croix, USVI.

I thought the exact same thing when I saw it! Amazing shot Genevieve! But I love the beach so I'll probably share 3 shots  anyway, though I have nothing that comes close, just for the fun of it.

Photo didn't post so wanted to be clear what I was responding to.

There are so many things that say "beach" to me. In fact, today I put together three photos for an upcoming show, one of a Ferris Wheel, one of a hummingbird, and one of reeds in a marsh near a lighthouse, that all say "beach" to me because they were taken on trips to the New Jersey or Connecticut shore. But I know this is so much more literal. My portfolio is filled with boats and lighthouses, some of which do show the actual beach, but I decided to share these three, which are actually of the beach, that sandy space where we relax before heading into the sea. I love the beach - a perfect summer subject - great choice! 

 

It's rainy and  dreary here in NY today, so nice to view lovely weather images and think about an upcoming vacation to the beach (the same one shown in the first photo here):

 

father-and-child-fishing-from-a-pier-doc

 

A father and child fishing off the pier at the beach in Connecticut where I've spent at least a tiny part of the summer since I was 10. (Miss those childhood days when it was all summer). 

 

red-and-white-lifeguard-chair-at-misquam

 

A lifeguard chair at Misquamicut State Beach in Rhode Island. A favorite spot when we want to go to the ocean from Connecticut. Long Island blocks the entire Connecticut shore, so we only have the quieter Long Island Sound there. I also have a lifeguard chair from a beach in the Hamptons taken in silhouette at sunset that I considered for this challenge, especially since I am a New Yorker, but I opted for this one that sold last month. 

 

grandfather-and-granddaughter-holding-ha

 

A grandfather and granddaughter at the same Rhode Island beach. The water there is incredibly clear. The waves were good for my daughter to boogie board that day, but not great for body-surfing. I took these two photos right after I joined Alamy in the summer of 2008, when I had just discovered stock photography, and I was clearly thinking about copy space (I guess I didn't realize that I needed to check my horizons, but I like the authenticity of the moment).

You are much too kind. Same for me, I enter for the fun of it.

Ha - that's a kind of amalgam of both my shots!

 

We used to holiday at West Wittering in the 1950s. When I returned 50 years later I was amazed to find it had changed very little. You can't say that about many places in Britain.

Last time I went, the carpark was gridlocked in the evening. It took almost an hour to clear, so we gave up, locked the car and went back to the beach to watch Colombians dancing salsa on the beach, which was nice. Never went again.
