Since childhood, I have always been fascinated with the colors of the water in the Baltic Sea. Whenever we were sailing to Gdansk – my Dad used to wake me up early in the morning, so that I would see how the Gulf of Gdansk changes colors. From grey, or blue-grey – to green, or brown-green, the colors were changing depending on the light or the time of day.
Today I took my camera and went to the beach to take some photos of the sea. When I came there – the water was grey-blue. And in the far distance, on the horizon, I could see the dark shadows of heavy rain or a snow storm. The water there had the color of dark graphite. It was hard to say where the sea ended and where the sky started… And suddenly the colors changed. I stood amazed – when I saw green water, and the swans in a vivid contrast with it.
Indeed, I do understand why my Dad loved the sea so much 🙂
