Black and White fairy tale on the beach

Black-and-white photography.

On the beach.

At the northeasternmost tip of Germany. 

But that's not the type of black-and-white story I want to tell today.

Here's a more colourful version of black-and-white photographs taken on the beach...

Like in a fairy tale one morning on the beach
a beautiful young lady in an extraordinary white dress
went riding on her impressive deep black Friesian horse.

Unfortunately no noble prince was far and wide.

But this princess didn't look like she was waiting for a prince,
she was definitely happy all alone with her gorgeous horse
galloping along the sandy beach.

***   ***   ***   ***   ***

But one moment later,

the lady and her horse disappeared as fast as they emerged.

The beach was empty again

and only the cries of the black-headed gulls

broke the silence.

Was it real?

Or just a dream?
