En leg på havstokken

Piet Hein – om at leve i nuet.

At leve i nuet er livets teknik –
og alle folk gør deres bedste,
men halvdelen vælger det nu, som gik,
og halvdelen vælger det næste.

Og det forrige nu og det kommende nu
blir aldrig i livet presente
og alle folks levetid går sågu
med bare at mindes og vente.

For det nu, som er gået, er altid forbi,
og det næste blir aldrig det rette.
Næ, sørg for, at nuet, du lever i,
engang for altid er dette.

En vandretur på stranden er en vandring i nuet. Den skiftende leg mellem sandet og det våde element kræver opmærksomhed. En konstant vurdering af hvor stor den næste bølge bliver. En leg om at jage eller blive jaget.

Solvarme, salt på læberne og tilstedeværelse i nuet. Det er det, livet handler om.

  1. I do love these sea shots, Hanna! The skies are a glorious colour and the water looks beautiful. I especially like the vertical shots which seem to have many layers of texture and colours of water – there is the blue sky, the deep blue water, light and clear water, green water, pebbles and then sand layers. Excellent shots! 🙂

    1. We think alike, Jane 🙂 I also love the many layers and shift of colours. The water is always beautiful in the spring it is clear and you can see all the details on the seabed. The sea is a constant source of inspiration. Thanks for your inspiration too.
      All the best,

    1. I remember you have been to Copenhagen, Isabel. These pictures are taken in a distance of 60 km from the capital. It’s a great beach 🙂

    1. Thank you, Alexander. It is always ‘interesting’ to convert new data to pictures on the computer 🙂
      I think that ‘shooting’ on a beach is very challenging. The images are often without depth and life. It really depends on the weather.
      When dark clouds are looming large on the horizon the contrast with the white sand and the reflection in the sea is amazing powerful.
      I hope to get such pictures in my collection without lightning strikes me 😀
      All the best,

    1. The beach is wonderful. It very nice to sunbathe and swim there. The beach gets 6 stars with 5 being the highest 😀
      It is lovely to hear from you, Barbara. I thought of you the other day when I walked past some flowers you might recognize ❤

      I really appreciate Air France 🙂
      All the best,

    1. Tak Leya ❤ Strandbilleder er altid en spændende udfordring. Sand og optik er én ting, de store flade vidder er en anden 🙂
      Mange hilsner til dig,
      Hanna

  2. I can’t read your language, but I sure love your pics. You take fab photos, and live in a magic place. ❤

    1. Dear Resa. The sea has always been my favourite. So every time I have the chance you can find me there 🙂
      All the best,
      Hanna

  3. That is a very thoughful piece, Hanna. It’s always good to walk along a beach and just allow your thoughts to drift.

    1. Alen, sometimes returning from the mountains in Norway the beach constitutes a form of gate, a transitional phase, a habituation to civilization. The beach has its own pulse, and the waves breaking on the beach has its own play and rhythm. It’s very soothing.
      I was born a few streets from the sea and I have probably heard the sea before I saw it ❤
      All the best,
      Hanna
