Float above deserted marshes

A series of abstract realistic and impressionistic photos made in the nature reserve Agger Tange when the grasslands are largely under water.

The swampy pastures of this part of National Park Thy are wedged between the dunes of the North Sea and Krik Vig, a bay in the Limfjord. The area has a special tranquility. It is never silent: the singing of many species of birds is accompanied by the singing of the wind and the humming of the surf. In the wet periods of the year, the marshes cover almost the entire area. Nature is at rest, and has covered itself with a robe of water that continuously changes color and texture. The color palette of sun and clouds colors the fabric that the wind chooses: from satin and silk to a coarse woven natural linen. When I wander along the edges of these marshes, it is not difficult to imagine that I float above the water and then, in a calm, stately flight, become one with the fleeting colors of that moment.

Agger Tange is a swamp area just south of the coastal town of Agger on the North Sea coast of northwest Jutland, Denmark, and is part of Nationalpark Thy, the oldest nature reserve in Denmark.
This is the second of two series made in Agger Tange. The title of the first series is ‘Wander through deserted land‘.

Overflow the land in silence,
rise to the foot of the hills and
let them float
wherever the wind will take them

When morning comes, a light breeze is born,
slowly dispels the damp cold of the night
and welcomes the first rays of sunshine.
