"Marisqueras" are the women who collect the "marisco" (seafood).
This picture was taken in Galicia, noth-west of Spain and it's cold and wet, they do this work all the year, don't care if it's raining or it's too cold for work... really hard word; one-by-one and against the weather... choosing the seafood by size and leaving the smallest for next season.
Think about it next time you eat Spanish seafood.

Nice compo and interesting note. I think they are called "Marisqueiras", aren't they?, as it is called in Galician language.
Sometimes gets sunny too!!!

This shot gives a good impression of the uncomfortable nature of this work with the cool grey sea all around. I would like to see the figure on the left edge cloned out as it is rather distracting. A very interesting look at daily work on the coast.
Best wishes Maggie
