I never imagined that this picture would recieve so much attention. It feels great to have created something that has an impact on other people. I have gotten quite a few messages where people have asked to know more about the picture so I thought it would be right to give some background info on the picture.
In 2006 I was on vacation in Croatia on the island of Brac. We were having a nice day on the beach walking along the coastline when I noticed this girl standing on a rock quite close to the ocean she stood there and did´nt move and she seemed so lonely. I had fallen some distance behind my girlfriend that was walking ahead of me so I only took this one photo of the girl as I walked by, I never saw her face. I rushed to catch up with my girlfriend and we had walked some distance when I looked back and the girl was still standing there.
A while ago I finally decided what I wanted to do with the photo and the end result is what you see here. I made the picture from the emotion I was getting from it. I put in the black background and the shaft of light and it just felt somehow right that way.
Thank you all for the kind comments and invitations!
