Flat Lands

The river rushes forth
over it's sandy path,
to find a moment of rest
in the arms of the sea

The Netherlands. My country of birth, the country where I have lived almost all my life.

A flat landscape with winding rivers and beautiful villages.
Country roads between fields, that are marked by endless rows of bushes and trees.
Polders that are sometimes lower than sea level. Rivers and canals that, if you fly like a bird, seem to divide the land in thousands of islands.

Into A White Night

For a brief moment, the last rays of the sun dazzle you and take you to a silent, white night…

Introspection (1)

The low tide
reveal what was hidden
introspection

An autumn walk on the beach of Schiermonnikoog, one of the Wadden Islands on the north coast of the Netherlands. The weather calmed down after a storm.
It's low tide, the bottom of the sea becomes visible. The fierce waves have left their marks, like every intense event in life...

Painting Dreams With The Colors Of Silence

Painting Dreams With The Colors Of Silence

Morning is coming,
all that remains of dreams
are the colors of silence

The first morning light in a deserted heathland that prepares for the winter.

I Can No Longer Hear You - Abstract realistic fine art landscape photography by Jacob Berghoef

I Can No Longer Hear You

Now all your songs of beauty fail
The forest closes 'round you
The sun goes down behind a veil
'Tis now that you would call me
So rest in peace my nightingale
Beneath your branch of holly
Fare thee well my nightingale
I lived but to be near you
Tho' you are singing somewhere still
I can no longer hear you

From 'Nightingale' - Leonard Cohen (2004)

Rushing River

The river rushes forth
over it's sandy path,
to find a moment of rest
in the arms of the sea

The Waal river in The Netherlands. A beautiful, broad river, the busiest river in Europe. The Waal river flows into the North Sea.

Musing On The Waterfront

The whole day they stand in the sun,
on the shore of the lake.
The heat makes languid,
thoughts float slowly over the water.

A warm spring day in the Ooijpolder nature reserve, near the city of Nijmegen. The Ooijpolder is an area consisting of floodplains south of the river Waal, and a polder directly behind the river dike.

Shivering Trees In Morning Haze (1)

A fresh september morning, the haze dissolves and the sun shows itself carefully.
The trees along the river Maas, near the town of Heumen in the Netherlands, seem to wake up with a slight shiver.

A Day Once Dawned And It Was Beautiful

A Day Once Dawned And It Was Beautiful

A day once dawned and it was beautiful
A day once dawned from the ground
Then the night she fell and the air was beautiful
The night she fell all around

So look, see the days
The endless coloured ways

[Nick Drake - From the morning]

A fresh september morning, the haze dissolves and the sun shows itself carefully.

In The Mist Of An Early Morning

Early in the morning, the newly risen sun touches the landscape. The sounds are muted by a slight mist, rising from the cold water of the river.

Waking Up Under A White Veiled Dawn - Impressionistic fine art landscape photography by Jacob Berghoef

Waking Up Under A White Veiled Dawn

Stripped of his robe, but stately as ever,
his branches rise high above the river…

Of course, a tree in its full splendor in the summer is incredibly beautiful and impressive. But trees in their winter bareness fascinate me very much. Bald but proud, reaching to the sky...

Flow Into The Night

Flow Into The Night

Dreams flow into the night, oust the darkness
and invite our memories to appear from their shelters.
