Photographer's Note

On this rainy Sunday I wanted to post something sunny and thought about this photo on the western coast of Öland, a Swedish island in the Baltic sea.

There is no real difference in waterlevels due to tide effects in the Baltic sea. This is because not enough water flows in through the Oresund and Store Baelt (in Denmark) at high tide and out at low to cause a tidal effect on the eastern side of Sweden. In the same way the Baltic sea is getting breckish because the influx of water from the rivers is larger then the influx of salt water through the Oresund and Store Baelt.
