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 (7)

The sea winds are rising
Rushing sunset clouds
brought into darkness

A beautiful autumn evening, a strong sea breeze brings the clouds to the land, on their way to darkness.

Spring Sunset (4)

A fairly dense cloud cover seems to conclude the day without sunshine.
But then a clear, cloudless sky appears on the horizon. I run outside with my camera, moments like this usually only last about 10 minutes....

Goodnight Kisses

A light sigh is heard over the still waters,
when the late sun kisses the earth
at the beginning of a quiet night

Summer Sunset (6)

The sun embraces us very intensely for a moment longer, with the soft colors of the end of a warm, humid day.

Kiss The World Asleep

When the sun pierces through the cloud cover in winter, I have to take my chance. Too often the sun disappears behind a thick gray blanket immediately after briefly showing itself, only to show its face again the next day (or even a few days later).

It is cold, the sky is clear and the meadows are frozen. The ideal conditions under which a Nordic sunset shows itself in all its splendor.

The dying sun
colors the sky with a poem
to welcome the night

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.

Burning Sunset (4)

In a burning sunset,
the last breath of the day
welcomes the night

A cold evening at the end of a heavily cloudy, gray winter day. Just before the sun sets, the clouds open up allowing the light for a brief but intense moment to say hello to 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... ;)

Beyond a dream...
