The story behind the image
Yesterday I shared a the latest addition to the Lonely Tree series – a single tree at the Solitüde beach in Flensburg, Germany. Here’s the corresponding image of my childhood from 1967. It shows me at the Solitüde beach. I wear a coat, so I assume it’s autumn, maybe October. This is confirmed by other images from that day show light protective (but not really warm) clothing, so it must have been one of the last somewhat warm days of the year.
In this image, the beach appears to be long and wide. This has changed significantly over the decades, and today the beach is merely a tiny and rather narrow strip of sand that is protected by grass covered dunes. The location where my mother took this photo is now permanently flooded by the Baltic Sea.
