baltic sea

storm companion

sturmgesell

and stormy it was… another one from the beach of usedom.

i found sturmgesell’ a bit hard to translate. it definitely means storm companion or maybe rather companion in a storm and that’s fine but the gesell’-part has a quite oldfashioned sound to it and i don’t know how to get this across in english. any suggestions?

the baltic seabehind a wall. and, well, beach art. found on the north-western extremity of sobieszewo.

to the beach IIi you want to have the beach you have to have the forest. at least on the island of sobieszewo and probably most other places at the baltic sea.

my first attempts with vertical panning with the e-p5. that seems to work reasonably well… but i guess it would have worked with the e-pl1, too.

la mer (baltique that is)

i always thought of the baltic sea as a giant bath tub and so i was told in my childhood. so no waves.  i actually have never been to the beaches of the baltic sea until a recent visit to poland. what i saw there was quite far away from taking a relaxing bath. but then again if you put a giant ventilator above the tub you would get close to the state of the the sea i saw.
