It was a particularly windy day. The beach was deserted except for the solitary figure of a beachcomber striding purposefully towards shelter. Everything about his gait and posture suggested that this had not been a productive visit.

The high contrast graphic expression says all about solitude and the lone seeker. I do feel his disappointment. A great photograph.
Thanks Otto. I appreciate your comment.
As Otto says; you have captured and expressed the mood perfectly. I also like your perspective and timing, making sure that all his limbs are visible which help express the despondency.
Thanks Noeline. The timing was fortuitous. I only had the opportunity for two shots and I wanted a profile that showed his metal detector and his determined stride. The other shot was rubbish!
An entire story from one minimal image-great!
Many thanks Elena.
