Subject matter
This photograph features a beach scene with moored boats under a nearly-cloudless sky. The undersaturated azure of the sky and bright white highlights on the top edge of the image suffuses the atmosphere with the brilliance of the afternoon sun. A small blurred figure walks from the bottom right corner of the foreground toward the center of the scene. The figure's blurred body contrasts with the stillness of the boats moored in the shallows.
