Secret Places

The trees don’t sleep at night
they drink the silence
and breathe the breeze
that rustles the leaves
until new light is born.

When you walk deep into a forest, you’ll find them: secret and quiet places, where almost nobody ever comes.
The wind and the sun play with grass and leaves, painting together a constantly changing scenery…

Rooted - Stillness in your heart The roots of a tree in a November storm - Digital artwork based on a photograhp by Jacob Berghoef

Rooted

Stillness in your heart
The roots of a tree
in a November storm

In all the turmoil of the world, there are trees that remain standing perfectly straight. Offering protection and holding on no matter how severe the storm rages around them. Deeply rooted, connected to the earth and to the trees around them.
Find your tree, cherish it and hold on to it.

Green Song - On a rainy day, right after a huge downpour, we walked into a dense forest that looked so fairytale-like, sensual and intensely green, it didn't seem real. Everything was green, the color, the scent, the sounds…. - Fine art surrealistic landscape photography by Jacob Berghoef

Green Song

All day in the spring rain
Wandering between the trees
Birds sing a green song

Do you know the sound of green? Listen to the birds in the trees after the rain.
Do you know the scent of green? Take a stroll through a wet spring forest.

Frozen Scent - Abstract realistic and impressionistic fine art nature photography by Jacob Berghoef

Frozen Scent

First snowflakes falling
The cold breeze is scattering
frozen scent of pines

After two years without 'real' snow, some snow fell in northwest Jutland earlier this week. Above that, it was cold enough for a few days to enjoy the white landscape.
A wonderful moment for a walk in a forest. The delicate scent of damp pine trees is dispersed through the forest by an icy breeze.

Morning breaks over the silent forest
Clouds of mist rise from the moss,
carrying the cold of a winter's night

On the threshold of spring, I walk through the woods early on a cold and misty morning. Shreds of mist rise from the ground, the day is beginning.

Into The Day - It's still dim when I wake up. I get out, I can't stay in bed. For a moment I go outside, it is cold. I enjoy the quiet first hours of the day. Then you wake up. A warm hand, a warm hug. The day begins. - Surrealistic forestscape, digital art based on fine art landscape photography by Jacob Berghoef

Into The Day

Early in the morning I am
alone, breathing
the cold remnants of
the night, thoughts
wandering in silence, waiting
for the new light. Your hand
brings me to the now,
caresses me, together
we walk into the day. 

It's still dim when I wake up. I get out, I can't stay in bed. For a moment I go outside, it is cold. I enjoy the quiet first hours of the day.

Then you wake up. Your hand touches me, a warm embrace, a kiss. The day begins.

Alone, listening
to the fading day
The trees
give their yellow leaves
back to the earth
They know what I need:
silence
wrapped in gold

Lost In Memories

Musing trees in morning mist,
the new day hesitates and knows
they lose themselves in memories

It's still early in the quiet foggy forest. The new day seems to hesitate to start, so as not to disturb the trees at their musing.

A soft breeze intoxicates me
The scent of a new morning

Scent Of Early Morning

A pine fragrance,
damp ground awakens
The first light
softly caresses the moss
A spring morning blends
with dark scents of the night

It's early in the morning.The first sunlight touches the moss between the trees. And as if the forest had been waiting for it, immediately the most wonderful scents rise up and mingle with the nightly smell of damp leaves and wood.
