Light of Emptiness

Silent shadows
push me to the light
Emptiness
whispers my name

'Light Of Emptiness' is an artwork in a four-part black and white project. In this project I photographed tree lanes as a charcoal like sketch.

I made this photo on a gray rainy day in May on a path between a canal and the fields, in the vicinity of the city of Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

At Daybreak

At daybreak
The tops of pine trees
hit by sunlight

Early in the morning, it's quiet after a night full of mysterious sounds. The first sunlight hits the tops of the pine trees, the forest awakes.

‘At Daybreak’ is a new artwork in the collection 'Secret Places‘.
I made it in the beautiful old forest ‘Vilsbøl Klitplantage’ near the coastal city of Klitmøller, North Jutland.

Autumn Sunset (8)

The sun has set, the water of the fjord rapidly takes on the cold color of the night. Thin cloud veils seem to swallow up the colors of the sunset, until it's dark.

Sunset over the dunes along the North Sea and the bay Krik Vig, part of the Limfjord.

Autumn Sunset (7)

The sea winds are rising
Rushing sunset clouds
brought to darkness

A beautiful autumn evening, a strong sea breeze brings the clouds to the land, on their way to darkness.

Shrouded (3)

While I was trying to photograph a sunset before the sun was completely below the horizon, I realized that the beauty of light is often determined by how it is filtered, veiled or scattered. Here on earth the light is always filtered by something. The atmosphere, clouds, a canopy, mist… In fact, all these 'filters' make the sunlight much more visible, even almost touchable… Shrouded (3) is a new photo in a small series of a sunset, photographed in my abstract realistic style through high grass.

Shrouded (2)

Photographing a far too bright sunset two days ago, I suddenly realized that the beauty of light is often determined by how it is filtered, veiled or scattered. Here on earth the light is always filtered by something. The atmosphere, clouds, a canopy, mist… In fact, all these 'filters' make the sunlight much more visible, even almost touchable… Here is the second photo in a small series of a sunset, photographed in my abstract realistic style through high grass.

Shrouded (1)

I’m in love with light, I often say.

But when I photographed a sunset the day before yesterday and the sun was shining far too brightly into the lens of the camera, I suddenly wondered if that is true. So am I in love with light, or am I in love with how the light is filtered, veiled or scattered?

When you see pictures of the moon, the light of the sun is bright, monotonous and unmerciful.

Here on earth the light is always filtered by something. The atmosphere, clouds, a canopy, mist…
In fact, all these ‘filters’ make the sunlight much more visible, almost touchable…
I look around me quickly. What can I use to filter out that much too bright sun?

I get down on my knees, in a field of high grass…
Here is the first result of this experiment.
