I never get tired of watching (or photographing) the sunset and the sunrise at sea. Seeing the sun setting and rising again some hours later rewards after a sleepless night on watch. It makes you feel that sailing is the best hobby in the world and also makes you understand the beauty of the planet.

Unfortunately, this season we did not have a chance to experience those, because of the lousy weather. If the weather was sunny for a day, the next weather front appeared in the horizon in the evening.

Thus, we have to look for some older photos for this blog post. Here is a compilation of our best sunset/sunrise photos from previous seasons (2007-2011):


The first glimpse of sun light 

The moment before sunrise 

This and the next photo are not actually from Baltic, but from west coast of Sweden
