Only some sand, water and sky
Posted By: Fries, 12-19-2018, 04:06 PM

And some dunes! This is the western point of the island of Terschelling in the Dutch part of the Waddensea. This landscape and patterns on the ground are created by the wind and the sea. Hope you approve of my efforts to capture some of it. I had not planned to publish them together. So they have all been post processed as individual photo's. Pretty much concentrated on one spot that interested me. Lenses used were the Samyang 24mm and the Irix 15mm Blackstone.

Very nice series, Remco. I've always been fascinated with the abrupt interface between land and sea: two very different worlds just a few steps apart.

Thanks Jer! I have precisely the same fascination. Perhaps because from a young age on we went sailing with the family and I continued doing that as a shipmate on this ship with guests when I was a student:LVBHB Schepengalerij. The next hobby that took over was fishing and later fly fishing. No wonder even with a camera I mostly end up near the waters edge...

I like ALL of these pictures. Beautiful, simple components. All distinctly different. An excellent series. OK, I'll pick #4 as my favorite, with the dune grass and strong shadows in the sand. Thanks.

The Terschelling location reminds me of my time, when I was a boy, bicycling on Texel down to the south.
Ted, thank you for your wonderful compliments! It is really something special to read that by posting these photo's I reminded you over there in the States of your childhood on another Wadden island. Makes my day!
