Another very distinctly shaped “sculpture” I came across during one of my hikes along the “Weststrand” of the Darss peninsula. I was lucky (and patient) to catch the sailboats when and where I did. Of course, by the time I was done my company had disappeared in the distance, too. Ahh – the plight of the photographer … 😉
Another very unique “sculpture” I noticed while hiking along the “Weststrand”, the western beach, of the Darss Peninsula in the German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. I found it quite intriguing and I hope you do, too!
Here’s another one of those “sculptures” created by nature I spotted while hiking along the “Weststrand”, the Western Beach, of the Darss. The Darss is a peninsula in the German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. And I really wish the preview thumbnails on 500px would be showing the full image rather than a square …
These “sculptures”, as I call them, are very typical for the Fischland-Darss-Zingst region. As the ocean is chipping away on the shoreline, these trees, already shaped by the elements, finally become very bare and remain on the beach until they completely disappear in the Baltic Sea, claimed by the forces of nature.
