Baltic Sea

On our way from The Netherlands to Finland in November 2017 on the boat trip of 30 hours from Kiel (DE) to Klaipeda (LT) we were treated with impressive cloud formations and beautifully dramatic plays of light on the Baltic Sea. Heavenly atmospheres with beams of light breaking through the clouds alternated with ominous periods of dark blue, almost black heavy and dense clouds.

The extreme weather with the cold temperatures, heavy winds and frequent rain showers together with the intense low-frequency drone sound of the motor of the boat contributed to an intense experience. Capturing the elements with our sound and video recorders was an adventure in itself because of course the best recordings can be made only on the most difficult spots to reach, like on the slippery deck of the boat exactly when the big waves are swinging the boat back and forth..
