Photographer's Note

Nida is the last town in the Kuršių nerija or the Curonian Spit, a curious strip of land in the Baltic Sea. It is also probably the westernmost city in the Baltic states. The Spit is just about 2 or 3 kilometres wide but 98 kilometres long stretching from the port city of Smiltynė off Klaipėda all the way into Kaliningrad Oblast, a Russian enclave. Just beyond Nida lies the giant Parnidžio Kopa or sand dune, part of which is a protected natural park closed to public in order to prevent sand from rolling down into the sea, something that could eventual degrade this entire site.

In Nida, the houses are usually red or blue, with big gardens and sloping roofs and everything is neatly shaped like this window. On a bright sunny day, the colours are exuberant and a carefully manicured garden adds that extra burst of colour to make a pretty picture.
