beach life by jerome

beach life

The simple Omanis on the beach of Muscat. In the late afternoon many families find this to be a pleasant way to round off the day. Time for recreation, enjoyment, picnic, cosy get-togethers.
The evening sun bathes the ocean in glistening light, making the waves sparkling.
A wonderful scene of comparison with light and silhouette accenting the differences! fav

A lovely moment in time, just beautiful.

Seriously, I don't know how the women can possibly enjoy the beach with all those clothes on...

Wonderful golden light on the beach and great silhouettes

The surreal lighting makes this such an intriguing scene.

Wonderful light, really captures the feeling of baking heat and blinding light. But oh dear, those women in those awful things ………

@blueberry1222 You are right - for the Omani women, this beach is almost certainly just half a pleasure. Certainly there are many questionablenesses in the social fabric.
I think there is still a lot to do in this world... We are far from fair circumstances.

@golftragic You're right, Marnie - the veiled women... They can not romp on the beach like men, not bathing in the sea.
You can reproach me for seeing in this picture above all the light and dark, the proportion and the ponderation of the surfaces, the mood of sunlight,... You can say that it is not permissible for this image to be understood only aesthetically.

Superb photo, but I too feel for those poor women. Hopefully there was at least an ocean breeze to keep them cool

@jerome Absolutely no reproach whatsoever regarding your beautiful photo, my friend. Just stating a very sad truth about that part of the world. Your image is stunningly beautiful visually and aesthetically, but also makes a strong social statement about gender equity. I like the image very much - in both senses. In other words, one can have one's cake and eat it too.
