For a brief moment, the last rays of the sun dazzle you and take you to a silent, white night…
When I make an abstract landscape photo, I am often trying to give a minimalist view of the feeling that a landscape gives me.
This abstraction was made in the scarce light of a setting winter sun.
‘Into a white night’ is a photo in the series ‘Born from emptiness’, part of the gallery ‘Untouched land‘.
It is the third photo in a triptych that I made during a beautiful sunset last weekend 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.
The first photo in this triptych is ‘Birth of the night’, the second photo is ‘Dreamless sleep’.
