Photographer's Note

Water of the Sorge river floods the polder landscape near Meggerdorf, Schleswig-Holstein, on January 6, 2012. It was the low-pressure system "Andrea" that provoked heavy rainfalls and storms in wide parts of Germany.

The three rivers Eider, Treene and Sorge and their surroundings, form the largest lowland area in Schleswig-Holstein. The rich nature and large biological diversity make it one of the most outstanding landscapes in the state. Characteristic are the expansive green depressions of the Eider, Treene and Sorge rivers with interspersed highland and lowland moors and natural shallow lakes. It is one of the largest wet grassland areas in Northern Europe as well and it is registered in the list of wetlands of international importance. Large parts of this region are recognised as important bird areas.
