The story behind the image
We visited St.-Peter-Ording in Northern Germany for a couple of days in spring 2007 to explore the area. While it was way too cold to spend a whole day at the beach (as you would do in summer) we took long walks and enjoyed the good food.
We came when a cold period had hit the region, and a very cold and strong wind was blowing from the North Sea. This photo of the sunset over the giant beach expresses this coldness very well: The setting sun does not really look warm at all, and the water shows the tiny waves caused by the wind. Yet, I love the soft gradient of the sky, moving from steel gray over pink and orange into light blue.
