One of the best features of our first house in northern Poland was the setting. Nestled next to farmers’ fields, the location provided a clear view of the Polish sky and the wind turbines to the south.
We’ve lived in Kansas and Minnesota, both places with big sky and weather that changes on a dime. Northern Poland is easily their equal. The skyscapes here are as beautiful and as ever-changing, probably mostly due to our proximity to the Baltic Sea.
The skyscapes are indeed the big picture, but the details are beautiful, too. Poland is very fertile, so by looking down there was always something interesting to see: spider webs, flowers, frost, ice, etc. You get the idea.
This post could be considered an companion to “One Year On.“ Whereas that post was a reflection on the collision between our expectations and reality after one year in Poland, this post is a brief photo essay, in roughly the chronological order of when the photos were taken, of that year’s seasons as seen from our first house and the surrounding fields.
