Pebbles on the Beach

“I liked the vivid colors from the parasols and the towels, the curve of the waterline, and the bathers across the scene,” says Joe Navin, who took this shot from a road above a beach in Ortigia, Sicily. “The road gives an unusual perspective for a beach shot and it worked well with a wide-angle lens, so it was quite quick to frame and shoot.”
