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.

Morning Dream

Morning Dream
shattered in the fragile light
The clouds slowly awaken
and rise to the sky

It is early morning on a cold winter day. The sun has just risen, the first rays gently touching the reeds. The clouds seem to awaken from the cold waters of the fens and drift up to the sky like patches of mist in the wind, carrying the dreams with them...

Dying Light - A special calm comes over the evening when the sun begins to disappear behind the horizon and the light of the day dies. Nature awaits the night. - Surrealistic fine art landscape photography by Jacob Berghoef

Dying Light (diptych)

The dying light,
no sound,
not a word.
Trees leaning in red,
comforted
in loneliness.

A special calm comes over the evening when the sun begins to disappear behind the horizon and the light of the day dies. Nature awaits the night.
I love that quiet moment of the day...

Scent Of The Night

The light slowly fades away,
not a sound to be heard
The scent of the night arrives

A special calm comes over the evening when the sun begins to disappear behind the horizon and the light of the day fades away. Nature awaits the night.
I love that quiet moment of the day and the scent that announces the coming of night.

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.

River Dance (2)

Waltzing on the wind
Guided by rippling water
in their naked dance

A cold, hazy winter morning. Bare trees on the banks of the river move gently in the wind in the same rhythm as the ripples on the water. The river leads this dance...

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...

Morning is coming,
all that remains of our dreams
