Colors Drowning

Floating on water
The last light of the sunset
Colors Drowning

On a hike up the levee along the fjord where we live, the sun emerges from behind the clouds just before it sets. An enchanting display of winter colors, slowly drowning in the calm waters of the fjord.

'Colors Drowning' is a new artwork in my collection Evening Falls.

I made this photo during a walk on the borders of the Limfjord, North Jutland, Denmark.

Winter Sunset (9)

Not quite a sunset yet, but close.
When the sun pierces through the cloud cover in winter, I have to take my chance. Too often the sun disappears behind a thick gray blanket immediately after briefly showing itself, only to show its face again the next day (or even a few days later). And if it also feels like the sun kisses the world before going to sleep, I have another good reason to quickly make a series of photos....

A Crack In The Sky

Shattered daylight
The night is approaching
through a crack in the sky

Sunset on a clear winter day. The sky shatters like glass, to allow the night to enter the earth.

Burning Sunset (4)

In a burning sunset,
the last breath of the day
welcomes the night

A cold evening at the end of a heavily cloudy, gray winter day. Just before the sun sets, the clouds open up allowing the light for a brief but intense moment to say hello to the night.

Sunset over the North Sea, seen from the hamlet in North Jutland, Denmark, where I live.

MJR Gallery: Duende

A duende is a fairy- or goblin-like mythological creature from Spanish, Portuguese and South American folklore. Duendes also have some traits similar to goblins and kobolds.

The Duendes are forest spirits. They help people who get lost in the forest, so that they will find their way home.
In time, the Duende is also the spirit of evocation. The physical and emotional response, elicited by art. So having the Duende is equivalent to that thrill that makes you smile or cry in front of a particularly expressive artistic performance.

I made 'Duende' with an old analog camera. It was the first impressionistic forestscape photo with that camera.
A sunny morning on a path in a forest, near the city of Nijmegen in The Netherlands. The sunlight seems to dance across the path. It moves quickly from tree to tree. As a spirit that keeps an eye on me to see if I'm doing okay.

Limited Edition prints in 6 sizes are available in my collection in the online art gallery MJRGallery.com

Nebulae

A bright white light? Eternal darkness?

It is my conviction that after our death our spirit, our soul, travels to its origin somewhere in the universe. Once arrived, our energy is reunited with the energy from which everything around us once originated.

Nebulae (4)

As we know from the beautiful photographs taken by the Hubble telescope, the energy visible to us in the universe consists of light from countless stars. This light illuminates enormous gas nebulae in many fascinating colors. This is how I like to see myself. As a very small colored particle of dust. After leaving this physical existence, this particle returns to such an infinitely large, multicolored cloud of gas and dust.

The way there is an enchanting journey through space. Alternating between silent darkness and clouds full of light, color and tranquilizing sounds. After that long, fascinating journey, we arrive at our designated spot in that infinite space.

Nebulae (1)

In the project Nebulae I wanted to visualize that journey. That is how a series of abstract photographic artworks came into being. Made by transforming nine abstract realistic photographs of sunsets over the North Sea along the coast of the Thy region, North Jutland, Denmark.

The series ‘Nebulae’ will have its own, new collection on Saatchi Art. Limited and open edition prints are available there, or contact me for a quote.

As soon as one of the artworks has been added to my Saatchi Art portfolio, you will be able to visit the page of that artwork by clicking on the image.

Nordic Sunset (5)

A very cold winter afternoon, the sun almost sets. It is a bit cloudy, but clear. And clouds that veil the setting sun, provide the most beautiful colors when the sun goes down. A typical color palette for a Nordic sunset.

Sunset over the slightly frozen Limfjord, 7 years ago. We haven't had heavy frost and snow since that winter, here in North Jutland, Denmark…

Autumn Sunset (9)

The last autumn sunset artwork in this series. The wind is strong, clouds drift quickly along the sky, rushing to catch the last rays of light.

Sunset over the dunes along the North Sea and the bay Krik Vig, part of the Limfjord. I made this photo standing in the fields near the hamlet where I live.
