On a never ending quest
Birds fascinate me, capturing their movement is challenging and inspiring.
Gulls and terns on the coast of Denmark are a great source of inspiration, but also the photographing of urban gulls in the city of Nijmegen (The Netherlands) or a group of swans or geese in the sky above nature reserve Agger Tange, north Jutland, results in special fine art photos.

A fight against the wind,
the heads bent to withstand the briny sea,
their eyes wide open on a never ending quest
One with the waves,
without fear, jumping from
wave crest to wave crest,
diving into the deepest
trough, to re-emerge
and rise to the clouds.
The gulls are greedy, they do not know
That everything goes back to the sea
Once caught by the undertow
Wind and water blend into an icy mist,
The birds immerse themselves into the salty breeze
In a wild dance with the breaking waves
Hovering into a new day, let yourself be carried by the wind.
Let go and trust the waves to bring you what you need.
Bare tree in winter tears
two crows have settled
The wind harasses the trees,
in search of his voice
to sing with the crows
My eyes followed
the bird soaring to the sky
encountered the lost twin
a new horizon

…The Future and the Past are idle shadows
Of thought’s eternal flight—they have no being…
Percy Bysshe Shelley – Hellas
A wild wind -
Emerging from the surf
the spirit of the sea
Intense cold silence,
suddenly they emerge
from the water, disturbed
by a bright winter light
From the cold of long dark nights the soul revives
to be cherished
by the light
Wild wind from the north,
whipping the waves
Join me on my journey
together we’ll fly south
Evening darkness –
silent wings vanish
In the rhythm of our wings
Into the rhythm of your heart
from time and space
