A silent lament in darkness: Touching the horizon

Late in the evening after a beautiful summer day, it’s starting to get dark. The perfect time for a walk on the beach !
I’m experimenting with making abstract photos with an old analog camera.
Then I see a kite surfer on the sea, making high jumps. While following him with my camera, I make a few photos…

‘Touching the horizon’ is a photo in the series ‘A silent lament in darkness’, part of the gallery ‘Eternal sea‘.

I made this photo at the same evening as the photo ‘An evening at the beach’, in the same series:
