Whispering reeds: Pastel flirt

For a brief moment,
a fading pastel mirror flirts
with the passing clouds

The coastal strip in the part of Denmark where I live is known for the beautiful Nordic light. The sunsets over the North Sea and the lakes in autumn and winter are magical, at least: if there is not too much cloud cover. The past few weeks there were always a lot of clouds around the time the sun sets, but a few days ago the conditions were perfect: a humid atmosphere and veil clouds. That I was outside for an hour and a half with my camera, will not surprise you…

On this photo you see the sky above the Limfjord in the colors of this beautiful sunset. The water of the fjord, as always, gives us a beautiful reflection of the sky.

‘Pastel flirt’ is a photo in the series ‘Whispering reeds’, part of the gallery ‘Untouched land‘, that I made on the borders of Krik Vig, a bay of the Limfjord in northwest Jutland, Denmark.
