Belgium - Nature's Frontier by lux69aeterna Belgium - Nature's Frontier by lux69aeterna
After five long years i finally have a new photograph of my home territory, the North Sea coast of Oostende in Belgium. Sunset is always a magic moment to be here, noticing the lines that nature left... Before the epic battle will be fought between sky and shadow.

Ancient night and the unruly salt
beat at the walls of my house.
The shadow is all one, the sky
throbs now along with the ocean,
and sky and shadow erupt
in the crash of their vast conflict.
All night long they struggle;
nobody knows the name
of the harsh light that keeps slowly opening
like a languid fruit.
So on the coast comes to light,
out of seething shadow, the harsh dawn,
gnawed at by the moving salt,
swept clean by the mass of night,
bloodstained in its sea-washed crater.

Traduction of "La noche en Isla Negra", Pablo Neruda.

Zo een mooie foto van ons Belgenlandje. De kust is op zijn mooist in de winter vind ik persoonlijk. :) (Smile) :) (Smile)

Dank je Elsie! Ik weet niet of het echt mooier is in de winter... Al 6 jaar daar niet meer in de zomer geweest, en ik zou er toch liefst in de zomer zijn... Dan bevries je niet bij standwandelingen :)

Tja, kan ik wel begrijpen. Maar voor mij is er dan een beetje teveel volk, die allemaal strandwandelingen doen. Ik wil zo de utopie hebben dat ik alleen in paradise ben. :) (Smile)

T'is waar dat het dan leuker is om te wandelen... Maar als je dan foto's neemt in de zomer kan je dan makkelijker mensen toevoegen in de compositie, als er dan eens mensen zijn die iets kunnen toevoegen :) Als schaduw bijvoorbeeld voor de kleuren van een zonsondergang op de achtergrond...

Ja, dat's ook waar, zo kunnen ze idd iets nuttig toevoegen.

Zie je dat is die scherpe focus van je, natuurtalent he :) (Smile)
