What appears to me as the Virgin Mary in a gold crown and veil created by seaweed, waves and sand. You can judge the scale by the nearby footprints. I wonder if anyone else noticed or did she only appear to me? This image was at a gallery a few years back and some people were also able to see in a small segment of this image the face of Jesus with a crown of thorns. I could tell you where but that would spoil the surprise if he appears to you.
Shot with my Mamiya 645 – hand held so my exposure was no less then 30th sec. Kodak film ASA 160
