Photographer's Note

We are on Ameland, one of the dutch Wadden Islands.
Here you see the dike watchers' memorial, which was erected to honor the brave people who, at ungodly hours, watched over the dikes and over the safety of the islanders. The monument shows two sturdy men dressed in oilskin jacket and southwester during a storm on the dike, with lantern and life line.
