This seaweed ‘picture’ (‘The White Knight’) is exactly as observed at low tide – nothing added an d nothing taken away (except the sand!) The colours have been changed to highlight the contrast. Other titles/interpretations are obviously possible.

A maiden gathering winter fuel?

No. it’s a partially buried pebble and a strand of seaweed left on the beach at low tide!
