Canon EOS 5D MKII, Canon EF 16-35mm 1:2,8L II USM, tripod, torch for illuminating some parts of the statue and the tidal pool, long exposure (appr. 10 minutes), PP in PS 5.1

Location: Wadden Sea (North Sea) at Dangast, Jade Bight ("Jadebusen") appr. 1 hour after sunset
You're viewing a small tidal pool and a statue named "Jade" created by artist Anatol Herzfeld, a former student of Joseph Beuys, during high tide.

Dangast is a small village situated on the southern banks of the Jade Bight where chiefly expressionistic painters such as Karl Schmidt-Rudloff or Erich Heckel worked for a couple of years around the beginning of the 20th century.

I'm very grateful to Heinz Naujoks,
http://www.fotocommunity.de/fotograf/heinz-naujoks/1676100,
a photographer mate from Seefeld (Stadland), whom I accidentially met again last weekend at Eckwarderhörne (northern part of the Jade Bight) and who recommended me to visit Dangast (I'd learnt - just a bit - about Dangast and its artist colony earlier, in high school or so(?), however, have never pondered to visit - until last weekend...).
Actually, it's such a great location, therefore, I'll be returning! Thanks much, Heinz, and enjoy your new D800! :)

I'm grateful to everyone for leaving a comment as well as rating.
Buona visione.
Volker
