I came across this man with a metal detector early one morning in 2011 on the Connecticut shore. Apart from myself I think he was the only person on the beach.

I liked the primarily horizontal bands of tone: the darker tone in the foreground; then the lighter tone of the sand; the brighter tones of the sea; the darker tones of the Long Island shore; and the bright tone of the sky. Then there’s the man – the only vertical element in the scene.
