Dreams land on distant shores

A series of photos I made on the coast that I have fallen in love with years ago: deserted beaches, a strong west wind, sometimes a fierce storm, and a beautiful dune landscape that is largely a protected nature reserve. Over 40 kilometers of pure and silent beauty between the towns of Agger and Hanstholm, North Jutland, Denmark.

The sunset photos and the black and white seascape photos now have their own series:
Sundown soliloquy and A silent lament in darkness

Run swiftly

The wind runs swiftly over the sea,
sweeps the waves against the shore
and jumps over the dunes
to rest in the marram grass

Silenced

Errant thoughts
silence in the icy light
of the waiting sea

Silent shore

In the awakening of
a cold morning, restless dreams
meet the silent shore and die

Inevitable encounter

The wind lightly blows to the land,
calming the waves before they meet the shore,
guiding the clouds to what lies behind the dunes

She picked the colors from the air

When the evening comes
Blue to blue

Adagio in Blue

Walking on the beach south of Agger (North Jutland, Denmark) at the end of a windy winter day, I notice the slow and stately rhythm of the waves. Adagio, as life can be here in the beautiful north west of Denmark.

I found this beautiful piece of music with the same title:
Adagio in Blue on YouTube
Adagio in Blue on Soundcloud
Composed and played by Nina Khachiyants

Calming night

Cold and gloomy the west wind
rushes over the sea,
the night supplants the dusk
and calms the waves

Golden dunes of amber - Abstract realistic fine art seascape photo 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

on the beaches of loss
standing in the face of infinity
we found what we fell short
emptiness and modesty

Found a place to lie down

At the end of a long journey,
the waves try to go back to open sea one last time.
But the land is adamant,
so the waves lie down to rest on the sand.

Infinite fight with wind and tide,
always in search for a shore to calm down.
