Lost in an excess of impressions,
in search for the source of light,
where silence is born from emptiness
A cold winter afternoon. The sun is just above the treetops and shines right in my face when I make a photo of a small lake in a swampy area. It is quiet, the bright light of the late afternoon sun seems to evaporate all forms. It feels like the intense silence is born from the emptiness in the blinding light.
‘Born from emptiness’ is the photo that gave name to a series, part of the gallery ‘Untouched land‘.
I made this photo February 2016 in nature reserve Overasseltse & Hatertse Vennen, close to the city of Nijmegen in The Netherlands.
It is a small and enchantingly beautiful nature reserve, a landscape of fens, small groups of trees, heather and grassland.
