The story behind the image
While waiting for the sunset to approach I found a light orange shell in the sand. I turned it around several times and realized that its shape might look like a shark fin sticking out of the water (or, in this case, sand). I stuck the shell into the wet area of the beach in a way that the sun would cast a long shadow onto the beach. Then I used a large aperture to blur the front and back.
Voilá. A nice and funny picture.
