Infinite Sea

Standing in the face of infinity
We found what we fell short:
Emptiness and modesty

The sea and the sky are a mirror of each other’s soul. The relationship between sea and sky is resembling an intimate relationship between two people: the occasional heated discussion or emotional conversation, every now and then even a fierce quarrel, at other times a gentle caress or a long intimate moment… Sometimes there seems to be some distance, but usually they are very close together. They are forever connected, they want and can not live without each other.

Every time when I climb the dunes, when I walk the beach and when I see those two in front of me, I feel like a privileged person. Privileged that I can listen to them, that I have the opportunity to see their interaction.

Enclosed By The Wind

When you stand on top of the dunes, you can see and feel the power of the wind. But just behind the top, in the protection of a slope in the dunes, it is wonderful to sit and rest while listening to the surf.

Shattered Blue

The autumn sea
Cold winds break the blue
A deserted beach

A windy but sunny autumn afternoon on the beach of the North Sea. The waves break restlessly in a turbulent surf, due to a chilly northwest wind…

Eternal Song - Abstract realistic fine art seascape photography by Jacob Berghoef

Eternal Song

Rabindranath Tagore [Stray Birds, 1916]:

What language is thine, O sea?

The language of eternal question.

What language is thy answer, O sky?

The language of eternal silence.

Shivering Sea - Abstract realistic fine art seascape photography by Jacob Berghoef

Shivering Sea

The shivering sea
softly sings to the sun
in the morning

A cold fall morning on the beach of the North Sea. The sea is calm and rustles softly, seems to be longing for the first rays of sunshine that will warm her...

Introspection (1) - Abstract realistic fine art seascape photography by Jacob Berghoef

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...

Silenced - Abstract realistic fine art seascape photography by Jacob Berghoef

Silenced

Errant thoughts,
silenced in the light

Haze of Silence - Abstract realistic fine art seascape photography by Jacob Berghoef

Haze Of Silence

A haze of
silence, longing
for the night

I made this photo late in the afternoon on a deserted beach along the North Sea.
A dense haze approached from the sea, the silence was tangible. Everything seemed to long for the quietness of the night.

Slow Dance - Abstract realistic fine art seascape photography by Jacob Berghoef

Slow Dance

On a not too windy day, waves are very calming to me.
They play a game with the sun and the sky, the endless variety of colors continuously presents a breathtaking spectacle.
The regular irregularity with which they move in a slow dance, elevate in the surf, explode for a short moment and relax in the sand, is hypnotic. If you sit in the sun on the beach and close your eyes, their song, accompanied by the wind, can easily make you fall asleep...

Woven Chant Of Water And Wind - Abstract realistic fine art seascape photography by Jacob Berghoef

Woven Chant Of Water And Wind

An evening on the beach, at the end of autumn. It is not quiet, water and wind form a choir that sings a loud chant to welcome the winter.

Breath Of Winter - Abstract realistic fine art seascape photography by Jacob Berghoef

Breath Of Winter

With a gentle breeze,
the winter soothes 
the breaking waves

I made this photo on a cold and cloudy winter morning at the beach of the North Sea.

Golden Dunes Of Amber - Abstract realistic fine art seascape photography by Jacob Berghoef

Golden Dunes Of Amber

Between here and there
sea and land
the blue and the green
lie the golden dunes of amber
Ever changing
fluid like the waters
solid as the earth

This poem was written by my beloved Anuscka

A cloudy autumn afternoon, every now and then the sun peeks through the clouds and makes the dunes look like sunlit amber, as you can find on these beaches.

Wild Is The Wind

The wild wind rages
over the sea, breaking the waves
on the drowning beach

Sunlight Serenade - Abstract realistic fine art seascape photography by Jacob Berghoef

Sunlight Serenade

Hundreds of small islands lie off the coast of south-east Sweden.
They usually consist of no more than rocky soil with shrubs and trees, surrounded by a collar of reeds.
On this beautiful day, the sunlight plays a serenade on the reeds, accompanied by the wind.
