Sopot is a seaside town in Eastern Pomerania on the southern coast of the Baltic Sea in northern Poland, with a population of approximately 40,000.
Sopot is a city with powiat (county) status, in the Pomeranian Voivodeship. Until 1999 it was part of the Gdańsk Voivodeship. It lies between the larger cities of Gdansk to the southeast and Gdynia to the northwest. The three cities together make up the metropolitan agglomeration of the Trójmiasto (Tri-City).
Sopot is a major health-spa and tourist resort destination. It has the longest wooden pier in Europe, at 515.5 metres, stretching out into the Bay of Gdańsk. The city is also famous for its Sopot International Song Festival, the largest such event in Europe after the Eurovision Song Contest. Among its other attractions is a fountain of bromide spring water, known as the "inhalation mushroom".

Superb atmospheric capture of the marina. I liked the processing of colours which has given a very dramatic mood to the picture especially the clouds. Lovely framing and composition. Thanks for sharing and have a nice evening.

I like the lighting and the atmosphere it conveys. Also, the point of view looking across the marina with the pontoon placed obliquely. Very good colours and clarity.

Great photo of the marina. There's a nice tranquillity about the place and the clouds look beautiful, especially the darker ones in the foreground.

Approaching storm cloud is God's gift just waiting to be captured by keen photographer, it is really dramatic and extremely well composed with the break in the brewing cloud in exactly the right spot. You've caught the atmosphere so very well flawlessly taken, Congrats.
