Photographer's Note

In Northern Europe summer weather fades into autumn as September comes to an end. The autumn equinox, when day and night are of equal length all over the world, occurs on September 21. Thereafter, the days become shorter every day until Christmas. By November the change to normal time has been made. This is also the time of winter storms. Deep troughs of low pressure coming from the Atlantic bring a stream of relatively warm, moisture-laden air. This air is very unstable, which is why late autumn is a time of unsettled and stormy weather.
The photo shows the Baltic Sea coast in the east of Schleswig-Holstein at Hoekholz near Eckernförde under a characteristic sky. (By the way: In Denmark and on the Baltic coast, the frequency of clear days lies to about 35-45 per year.)
In the non-tidal Baltic Sea storms have the strongest influence on coastal changes. Coastal erosion and flooding is a severe problem.
