Floating On Frozen Silence

Bare trees, floating on frozen silence
A cold morning breeze caresses your face
Footsteps gently break the fresh snow

It's early in the morning. It has been snowing all night, there is no one else in the forest. Carefully you take a step into the fresh snow….

I made this photo in the beautiful forest Dover Plantation, near the town of Hurup Thy in Denmark.

Lonely morning

A lonely cold morning
Footsteps muffled
Endless carpet of stillness

Fresh snow, as far as the eye can see. The forest looks spacious, light, and larger than usual. It is quiet, and the world feels deserted. Only the muffled crunch of my footsteps in the fresh snow.

After two years without 'real' snow, last week we had a few centimeters of snow. A wonderful moment to enjoy the silence of a white forest.

In Daylight

Embrace the joy of daylight
Find comfort in the bright light
of a fresh breeze and the winter sun

Our day with no screens, no internet and (almost) no electricity was a breath of fresh air.

Literally, because we took a long walk. Figuratively, because we reflected and talked about our online time and use of electrical devices. Even in our minimalistic household, this generated several immediately implementable ideas, providing peace of mind, time for reflection, time to do different things for a change, and saving on our CO2 emissions.

So we will continue to do this. One day i-off and e-off every week.
We can heartily recommend it, if only to become aware of your i-use and e-use and the alternatives that are available.

In Darkness

Embrace the silence of darkness
Find comfort in the scant light
of a candle and the winter sun

Anuscka and I decided to spend a day "in darkness" every week. Figuratively speaking that is, it will be a day with minimal use of electricity and no use of the internet, and screens in general.

Why? Because we are curious to see how we like it. Because we want to spend less time behind screens. Because we would like to have a recurrent period of silence and reflection. Because using very little electricity for a day contributes significantly to reducing our CO2 footprint...

White Dawn

Falling snow muffles the moans of breaking waves.
A white silence rises from the morning twilight.
The snow-covered beach welcomes the day.

A walk on a virgin white beach on the first day this winter that snow has fallen. It's cold, quiet and breathtakingly beautiful… What a fantastic way to start a new day !

Frozen Scent

First snowflakes falling
The cold breeze is scattering
frozen scent of pines

After two years without 'real' snow, some snow fell in northwest Jutland earlier this week. Above that, it was cold enough for a few days to enjoy the white landscape.
A wonderful moment for a walk in a forest. The delicate scent of damp pine trees is dispersed through the forest by an icy breeze.

I made this photo in the beautiful forest Dover Plantation, near the town of Hurup Thy in Denmark.

Wings Of Light

Bare trees whisper
The evening arrives
on wings of light

Golden wings of light move slowly through the cold evening air, bringing the last light of the day into the darkening forest.

Autumn Rains

Hesitant rain clouds
Soaked fields drying in the wind
Young wheat rises

After a week with only rainy days, the sun shines for a few minutes just before it sets. A strong cold breeze dries the fields with young winter wheat.

Autumn Evening

I see a gray day
drowning in the last light
Autumn evening

During a long walk in a dark and grey forest, the sun briefly breaks through just before sunset. A perfect start to an autumn evening...
