Searching for the quiet

Winter fields- Texel

The more my mind is filled with thoughts and information and things to be done, the more there is a longing for the calm and quiet.  Looking at my pictures it reflects in my photography. The open land and wide expanses seem to calm the senses. There is room for imagination and daydreaming like dreaming oneself away, far away, from everyday life.  Giving in to the wish for simple quietude for a moment, a holiday from the mind.

This picture was taken on Texel island, which is beautifully empty and quiet outside the touristic season, which seems to stretch out itself over almost the entire year unfortunately.

  1. I rather suspect a lot of us are searching for the quiet, probably without realising. It’s a good thing to find, and to know when you’ve found it.
