Photographer's Note

A break from the autumn colours today. This one was made one of the late evenings in June (at 21:30, to be precise, and see - the sun wasn't down yet! hard to believe now in December when it is already completely dark at 16:30...) from the coastal dike in Hindeloopen village in the province of Friesland, north of the Netherlands. This dike and even this fence were already featured in one of my earlier posts; to make the present photo, I was standing on top of the dike and shooting down to the Zuiderzee. Actually Zuiderzee ("South Sea") is a historic name, given when it was really a sea; in 1932, however, it was closed by a 32 km-long dike and became a lake - click on the map and zoom out to have an idea.

"Down to the waterline" is the first song on the first album of Dire Straits (1978).
