Artist's Description

I only just saw them in time as they walked along the beach about 70 yards away, instantly realizing I had barely 30 seconds to capture the magic. Dived for my Nikon. Darn, wrong lens. Where’s the 135mm f2.8? Found it. Off with the 105, and snap on the 135. Point, meter-up (I don’t do the automatic stuff, y’understand), frame, focus and… wait for the magic moment…

Look at the legs, the fag-in-the-mouth, the angle of the walking stick… two-tenths of a second late and the pic would be useless… GOT IT! WHOOHOO!!!
