Mandy captured this moody photo of Bennetts Beach, Hawks Nest at 9.40am on a very dark and gloomy day.

The photo was taken from the picnic area above the beach near the surf club.

Just as Mandy was taking the shots a lady appeared carrying this bright red and white umbrella.

Mandy processed the photo in black and white, leaving the umbrella in stark contrast colour.

The settings were f/5, 1/160 sec, ISO 320.

“The Myall U3A Photography group has just kicked off another year having our first meeting on Thursday 8 February,” said Sue Donohue, Myall U3A Photography Group.

“If you have an interest in photography, whether it is on a camera or your IPhone, then come along and join the fun.”
