Summer is almost over and in some parts of the world dark clouds start to appear on the horizon. Time to dream of your last vacation at the beach. Start with the rhythmic sound of the waves colliding with the rocks, a small cottage close to the beach, the fresh smell of the ocean combined with the warmth of the sun… are you still with me?
Even if you can’t remember your last vacation at the ocean, the following images of seascapes might inspire you. They tell a story about rocky coasts, sunny beaches and everything that people love about the sea. Every one of them has been published under a free license on Wikimedia Commons, Wikipedia’s media repository. That means that you can download each photo for free and also share it with your friends. And if you like that concept of sharing your works with a large audience, please consider uploading your own images to Wikipedia.
Here’s a new brochure (direct download, 3.8 MB) that explains how you can help illustrating Wikipedia with your own photos.
