A series of photos I made on the coast that I have fallen in love with years ago: deserted beaches, a strong west wind, sometimes a fierce storm, and a beautiful dune landscape that is largely a protected nature reserve. Over 40 kilometers of pure and silent beauty between the towns of Agger and Hanstholm.
I started adding links to Saatchi Art, and to contact forms with which you can ask for a quote.
Even if the links have not yet been added, the photo is of course available as a fine art print. In that case, please fill in the general contact form.

High dunes welcome the dreams
that hesitantly loosen themselves
from the safe embrace of the sea
The wild wind rages
over the sea, breaking the waves
on the drowning beach
With a soft sigh,
in the cool sand
A haze of
for the night
With a gentle breeze,
the winter caresses
the breaking waves
Restless winds climb the dunes
and leave the waves
in the arms of the shore
Dying noonday winds
cover the sea
with a robe of silence
The wind lightly blows to the land,
calming the waves before they meet the shore,
guiding the clouds to what lies behind the dunes
She picked the colors from the air
Black to black
When the evening comes
Blue to blue
In the night
Walking on the beach south of Agger (North Jutland, Denmark) at the end of a windy winter day, I notice the slow and stately rhythm of the waves. Adagio, as life can be here in the beautiful north west of Denmark.
The silver sea
frowns its waves
and drowns the
land in lather
A chorus of water and wind
combine their power to chant
in praise for the winter ahead.
Cold and gloomy the west wind
rushes over the sea,
the night supplants the dusk
and calms the waves
Between here and there
sea and land
the blue and the green
lie the golden dunes of amber
fluid like the waters
solid as the earth
This poem was written by my beloved Anuscka
Over the dunes of cupidity
on the beaches of loss
Standing in the face of infinity
we found what we fell short
Emptiness and modesty
At the end of a long journey,
the waves try to go back to open sea one last time
But the land is adamant,
so the waves lie down to rest on the sand
Infinite fight with wind and tide,
always in search for a shore to calm down.
The wind lays her head
on the pillow of the waves
and falls asleep under
the silk sheet of the setting sun
A dark night. Wave after wave
lifts itself one more time, before
laying down on the cool sand.
A silent lament in darkness…
