I was going to post another portrait from Oman today but thought I'd continue with the beachcombing/beach theme for another day, and while this isn't as striking as the last shot I posted, in many ways I prefer it. I think that the thing I like most is about this sort of image is that the objects I find on the beach are often perfectly sculpted (for want of a better word) into their environment. In this case for example the cup is slightly buried, in a way that would be hopelessly difficult to replicate if I'd tried to stage the shot. It's not a major thing, but is one of the things that attracts me to this type of shot.

Anyway, let me know what you think – I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.
