Photographer's Note

Ukraine, Arabatskaya strelka.
The open beach on the Azov Sea.
The Azov Sea is shallower and less salty than the Black Sea and is warmer in the summer and colder in the winter (in fact, it freezes over). It is fed by the mighty Don river, which flows through southwest Russia. Beaches on the Azov Sea range from sand to pebbles to mixtures of the two.
The unique Arabat Spit ('Arabatskaya strelka') — a thin 110 kilometer long sand spit that divides the Azov Sea and the shallow Sivash Sea to the west. Here a lonely gravel road down the middle and an occasional campsite is all you see till the city of Genichesk at the top of the Crimean Peninsula.
