I previously showed a black and white photo of a frozen sea, taken in the South of Sweden.
For me, a long stretch of the sea freezing to a rock solid material is a surreal concept. Maybe that's why I keep going on about it. But please let me share a few more photos of this frozen sea. And before you look at the photos, just try to imagine the following...
It's summer. Everyone is making the most of the beautiful and warm weather. Everyone is enjoying the beach, playing with the white sand and splashing about in the sea. The water is very shallow and its temperature really warm.
Can you hear silence? .... I can't. Everyone is enjoying themselves too much.
It's winter. The temperatures have dropped down to about -10 degrees C. The beach is deserted, except for the few walkers daring to come out in the freezing cold. You can't see the limit between the sand and the sea. It has all frozen over and snowed on top, leaving a very soft white layer.
Can you hear silence?
As you look closely you realise the roughness of the texture.
Rough icy texture
Will you dare walk on the ice, breaking the silence?
Walking on the ice
Have a nice week-end, not too icy, I hope.
For information, these photos are taken from Bjärred's Beach in Sweden. Just opposite Copenhagen (which you can guess if you look close enough).
