Photographer's Note

The Kiel Canal[ is a 98-kilometre (61mi) long freshwater canal in the German state of Schleswig-Holstein. The canal was finished in 1895, but later widened, and links the North Sea at Brunsbttel to the Baltic Sea at Kiel-Holtenau. An average of 250 nautical miles (460km) is saved by using the Kiel Canal instead of going around the Jutland Peninsula. This not only saves time but also avoids storm-prone seas.

Traversing the canal is about a ten hour trip with the ship we were on. This is a beautiful trip with so many people along the canal, waving, taking photos of our ship and we passengers, in turn,taking photos of them.

This home or mansion was very impressive, but one of many beautiful homes on the canal. We were on our balcony and looking down on the canal bank, so this is why there is the slant of the shot. Noteworthy, the shutter speed was 1/800 sec and not what the listing shows. This happens frequently.
