Leisure Project

Landscapes of summer holidays, Wadden Sea, Germany 2012/2014

Sankt Peter-Ording’s beach − approximately 12 kilometers long and up to one kilometre wide,
characterized by dunes and salt meadows − is the largest mainland beach of the Wadden Sea region.
The extensive sandy beach attracts almost a million holidaymakers a year. During shooting the temperature varied between 13 and 27 degrees Celsius. An insight into the German summer, with a touch of romanticism.
