Esbjerg 5, 2014

Before heading back to the car in the cold December wind, I realized I hadn’t covered this angle of the huge sculpture before.

Men at Sea

Esbjerg on the west coast of Denmark hosts this amazing work of art – Mennesket ved havet or, in English, Men at Sea.

Determined to at least attempt to create a photograph to do them justice, I was disappointed to see the cloud cover on my way there. I didn’t know then that the sun would break through the clouds, high lighting the statues from the side. And how could I guess that a visitor would turn up in a yellow trench coat.
