Each year anew I feel amazed by the imense beauty of the Western European forests. I’ve been out and about with my camera in Belgium, Germany and England, collecting impressions and inspiration for my artwork. I’ve composed this slide show for you, with some of my favourite pictures.
The last picture shows an ancient tree from inside. After it has grown for more than 700 years the dead and hollow trunk was struck by lightning, which ignited a fire inse of the giant tree. For me it represents the power and beauty of transformation, death and rebirth, the typical themes of winter.
I wish you all a blessed Winter Solstice!
