The village of Heiligendamm is an interesting one. Tucked away, all the way north in Germany, facing the Baltic Sea. It was host to the G8 in 2007.
I was there one freezing December afternoon...the sea was raging...these shots were photographed with the LX3.
The waves were rather strong...unrelentless in its pounding of the shore.
From the pier just outside the Grand Hotel Heiligendamm:
After 20 minutes, I needed to take cover inside the hotel. It was calm within...here is a panorama view of the grand cafe.
Somehow, looking out from within the warm cafe, the freezing weather manages to look beautiful.
