Sailboat at Sea, Germany

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature and Weather Photos While hiking at Jasmund National Park in northeast Germany, a rainstorm passed by and created a stunning scene! The sea was completely flat and the only thing out there was the tiny sailing boat. (This photo and caption were submitted to the 2010 National Geographic Photography Contest.)
