Naked and Elegant

I love this shot. I was sitting on a rock by the beach in Dalkey, Dublin in mid winter experimenting with trying to capture images of the spray as the waves broke. I looked up and this guy was running past. I just managed to get a shot before he disappeared. I don't usually think much about men's bums but his does seem terribly elegant. Weirdly enough it is not that unusual to see naked people around here. There is a designated nude bathing place nearby and some of the more enthusiastic nudists seem to stray onto the nearby beaches. I was in the same spot once on Christmas Day when a man, naked save for a Santa hat, darted out from behind me somewhere, dived into the freezing water and swam away.
