Sundown Soliloquy: Kiss The World Asleep

Not quite a sunset yet, but close.
When the sun pierces through the cloud cover in winter, I have to take my chance. Too often the sun disappears behind a thick gray blanket immediately after briefly showing itself, only to show its face again the next day (or even a few days later). And if it also feels like the sun kisses the world before going to sleep, I have another good reason to quickly make a series of photos….

I don’t often make vertically oriented photos. Just because the camera then is not comfortable in my hands. This one too was landscape oriented, but I cropped it vertically, because that makes the composition stronger and the special light glow on the water stand out better.

‘Kiss The World Asleep’ is a newly added photo to the series ‘Sundown Soliloquy’, part of the gallery ‘Eternal Sea‘.
I made it standing on the dunes, north of the town of Agger, North Jutland, Denmark.
