Umbrellas photo

Another fine image from Wired News Images Gallery. This picture was taken on July 17th, which was day one of the British Open Golf tournament, when the weather was particularly nasty.

There's something very photogenic about umbrellas. Also, looking at a photograph of a lot of umbrellas is so very much more agreeable than having to stand under one of them in circumstances such as these. Although even on the sunniest of days, golf leaves me cold.

It's the umbrella at left of centre of the picture, held up higher than the others, that makes the picture special.
