Hiding from the Sun


When people were not shopping under the tents at the Folk Art Market they could be found milling around. Fortunately the market provided umbrellas to those who chose to protect themselves from the sun. The clouds weren't too threatening but that changed hours after I took this shot.

Those are bright red umbrellas which certainly helps fill photos with color. We get thunderstorms almost every afternoon here during the summer. Fortunately, I play golf in the morning! :)

Providing free water and umbrellas is a reflection of the superb organization of the huge event.

A great idea -- I imagine it was rather steamy that day.

I would like an umbrella like those and your clouds are always spectacular!

Judy said...

Yes, those clouds look like the kind that can build up pretty quickly. We have been having rain most every afternoon and it cools off into the high 60's. I'm liking it.

Who wouldn't! It is really hot and sunny!

Great shot, Randy. I've never heard of anyone passing out brollies like that - a super idea.!

Michelle said...

A great patriotic color shot!

Jack said...

This is odd, Randy. In a place like Santa Fe, people aren't expected to take care of themselves in terms of sun protection?
