When I make photos of flowers, I try to get as close as possible to give you a view that you have never seen before.
All the flowers I photograph are common in north western Europe and can be seen in gardens, parks and forests.
But the experience I present you in my photos, is exceptional !
Above the source of light
On white breath of light
On white waves of light
Soft and fragile is the fading flower
A light breeze dilutes her dwindling fragrance
They look into the world for the first time, a little anxious but also very curious…
All three join a graceful dance, moving slowly on the breath of spring.
The Helleborus flowers bathed in sunlight, the stamens dance beneath the shade of the beautiful colored flower leafs.
The bright light of
a cold morning
with the slowly
Untouched by wind and cold, waiting to be expelled by spring
Winter reigns with chilly touch,
Stilled the song of nature.
The morning sun warms the earth
Slowly after a cold night,
Dreams float a while above the land
Before they go to rest in the light.
Water meets water, fused and stilled under duress by the cold, shielding the faded flowers like glass.
A veil emerged from winter air,
The weeds that blossomed frosty
Stood motionless, hiding in the light
Touched by the cold, time stands still.
Seeing the stillness
Feel the vibrations
Of the winter light
Crystal pearls of the cold worlds
Keep nature in their grasp,
Thousands of icy cold spheres
Adorn the plants with their brilliance.
Shivery morning, with nothing but the winter as a coat
The crowns and robes have fallen,
Autumn winds and rains passed by.
The last warriors are preparing for the final encounter.
