March Square | Circles

Beach Bubbles

If you fancy a distraction from the weather this month then join in with Becky’s (“A life of a 40 something”) March challenge of square photographs with the theme:

  1. Squared Squares’ – think multiple squares and squares within squares
  2. Squaring the Circle’ – the perfect post will be a circle within a square

March Square | 17th March

Published by


I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

        1. I haven’t seen it on the north coast, but then the sun is behind me, whereas here the sun was over the sea, so maybe catches the foam differently. I am sure someone knows the scientific reason!

    1. I saw several areas where the foam came in that had the colours, I raced around to capture as many as I could 🙂

  1. “So beautiful,” he whispered. “It’s all so damn beautiful.” – That’s Pollution speaking, in Pratchett & Gaiman’s “Good Omens”. And yes, he is right.

    1. Not necessarily from any pollution. You will see in each bubble a partly reflected sun in some color of the spectrum, one purple, one green, another yellow, and so on, depending on the thickness of the bubble film. Light is reflected from both upper and lower surfaces of the film. 

      1. It reminded me terribly of some little rivulet called appropriatly “sh*** river” which runs in the mountains near Jeddah. It’s the collected affluent of the city… but if you’re sure it’s not pollution – I stand corrected.

        1. The beaches here are pretty clean, I’m sure it was just a natural occurrence. But you are right in that pollution is a dreadful thing.

    1. I confess to having cheated a little by upping the saturation. But they were very beautiful. First time I have captured the colour in the sea foam, but then I rarely go to the south coast which is possibly better positioned for the sun to hit the foam.
