It is lovely, Ian. Your trademark fabulous sky and shimmer on the beach. The composition is superb. Until I read your commentary, I thought there was actually a nude man on the beach.

Once again you have taken me to that 'other place'. Thanks Ian. Visits 'chez toi' are a wonder. Almost like going on a mini-imaginary tour.

I am glad to see Gormley's work again... and your image with the interpretation of it. Is it a permanent exhibit? And the beach and the sky are fantastic. I am very tempted now to take a trip to the N. England. Those beaches are so interesting. They stretch for miles as it seams with fascinating tide. is it very shallow? Knowing that these statues disappear under water I am very curious about the tide patterns there.
