The Oresund Bridge and Windmills
The day has to be long. How else can we experience the richness and diversity that solstice offers.
The song of the nightingale, the beautiful tones of the thrush and the song of the chaffinch over our heads. Just to name a few.
The first dew in the grass is short-lived. The sun makes the dew fly away in an almost invisible haze.
The fresh air. The scent of bog and the endless amounts of blueberry rice.
The berries, the fine sweetness that fills the mouth and paints the tongue blue and then the laughter over a sudden transformation.
The beloved cottongrass waves at us with its white tousled head and brings back memories of a wonderful Norway.
We look fascinated at the flying skill of the dragonfly. So close to the water without touching.
And then suddenly a meandering motion reveals a snake’s journey in the water.
The experiences are endless, and it is only when we run out of meals that we reluctantly go home.
Happy Midsummer ❤️
If I want peace within, I’ll go to the sea.* It performs miracles.
I even found eider ducks in spring mood.
Those who live by the sea can hardly form a single thought of which the sea would not be part.
~ Hermann Broch
I wanted freedom, open air and adventure. I found it on the sea.
~ Alain Gerbault
The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.
~ Jacques Yves Cousteau
If there’s heaven for me, I’m sure it has a beach attached to it.
~ Jimmy Buffett
*In lack of mountains!
It’s autumn, but it’s like spring is on its way once more. Happy new week to all of you 😊 ⛅
Today is a cold rainy day in August. In fact, it could easily have been a day in November.
I was looking through my own pictures to match the light of Joaquín Sorolla’s wonderful paintings.
But I decided to deviate, with this summer image back in June 2015, where people were wearing overcoats.
Just like today 😀
