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…

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.

Misty Morning (2)

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.

Lost In Memories - Abstract realistic fine art forestscape photography by Jacob Berghoef

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.

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.
