Evening Falls

Waves arrive in silence
light shatters into darkness
the night opens her eyes

The enormous diversity of colors of sunrises and sunsets and the completely different atmospheres they create, fascinate me.

The sunsets over the North Sea and the coastal area of western North Jutland, especially in autumn and winter, are famous for their magical Nordic color palette: a fascinating monologue of the sun from the first to the last second.

But also in many other locations and in other seasons, I have photographed sunrise and sunset to express the emotion they evoked in me.

Autumn Sunset (2)

Autumn is generally a gray, rainy season here in North Jutland. More gray than winter, at least if there is a real winter. Still, fascinating sunsets can be seen regularly, when the low-lying sun dispels the clouds over the sea and gives a final nod to the day.

Fade Into The Night

Under light-clouded skies of winter,
The cold sea is silent.
After sundown,
the northern winds are gone.
Bright colors fade into the night
The day closes his eyes

Nordic Sunset (5)

A very cold winter afternoon, the sun almost sets. It is a bit cloudy, but the horizon is clear. And clouds that veil the setting sun, provide the most beautiful colors when the sun goes down. A typical color palette for a Nordic sunset.

A sigh is heard over still waters,
when the sun kisses the earth

Summer Sunset (4) - The westerly winds bring clouds almost daily, often at the end of the day as well. And that makes for spectacular colors of sea and sky from a never-to-be-predicted palette... - Surrealistic fine art seascape photography by Jacob Berghoef

Summer Sunset (4)

Summers on the west coast of Denmark are not summers of many days with clear blue skies. The westerly winds bring clouds almost daily, often at the end of the day as well. And that makes for spectacular colors from a never-to-be-predicted palette...

A quiet winter evening in a swampy area. The sun sets behind the trees and colors the sky as if it was on fire. A poem to welcome the night.

Beyond A Dream - Sunset above the North Sea - Abstract realistic fine art sunset photography by Jacob Berghoef

Beyond A Dream

When I use relatively fast movements to photograph a sunset with a rich color palette and a wide variety in brightness, my camera often struggles to keep up with me and come up with a good image every time. And that results in a large number of failed photos.
But then, what is good, what is failure... ;)
