Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I was in Denmark. Normally I would be taking pictures of people, landscapes ranging from Kasakh nomads on their yearly Winter Migration on the route from the lowlands to the highlands to adventurous, speed-loving motorcyclists on their way from Paris to Dakar driving over the plateaus of the Moroccan Atlas Mountains and the burning dunes of Sahara to Senegal.
However, the COVID pandemic grounded me on the most beautiful island in Denmark named Samsoe.
From the onset of the Pandemic with all the restrictions and lockdowns, I realised that I would not be able to travel freely for at least a year or more so I bought myself a black Labrador puppy named Congo.
The gift of having a dog is that you walk at least three times a day which meant I had the perfect excuse to walk along the beach watching the waves running over the sandy beach covered occasionally with small and larger rocks.
The retreat of the waves created unique and abstract images in the sand and left colourful, funny, and amazing looking seaweed figures that caught my attention.
My walks also took me through the forest where I found my eyes being mesmerised by odd and beautiful geometrical patterns of the bark of the old pine, maple and oak trees. Every pattern created by nature is there to be seen and photographed if we let ourselves be captivated by the beauty and force of nature.
