Another Silhouette on Holkham Beach

Well, this sea shell collector (my mother, to be precise) made for an interesting silhouette against the glaring winter's sun. The little Fuji always seems to perform well in such situations!

A remarkable (and difficult) shot. This turned out very well. I especially like the quality of light reflected on the sand, and the division of space within the composition.
