Born from emptiness: Birth of the night

In the fire of the sunset,
the day dies
for the night to be born


‘Birth of the night’ is a photo in the series ‘Born from emptiness’, part of the gallery ‘Untouched land‘.

I made this photo yesterday in nature reserve Overasseltse & Hatertse Vennen, close to my hometown Nijmegen in The Netherlands.
It is a small but beautiful nature reserve, a landscape of fens, small groups of trees, heather and grassland.
