by the sea

Aussie the dog on a long walk from Lorby to the Baltic Sea, Djupekås, Sweden

a dog seen from behind, contemplating the view. The viewer is encouraged to place himself in the position of the Rückenfigur, by which means he experiences the sublime potential of nature, understanding that the scene is as perceived and idealised by a dog. (edited Wikipedian entry on Caspar David Friedrich, artist)
