Picture day 47

This was photographed in Wales but it could really have been shot anywhere.

Longing for the sea

This image is a tribute to my admiration of space, silence and the sea, which is something I miss hugely since I moved from Sweden to Macclesfield in England.

    Just lovely. The dark tonality and gentle colour draw you in.
    Regards, John.

    Well you would miss the space, silence and sea being in Macclesfield, but why not venture to the English coast, not too far, the east coast being the nearest at a guess. Here you will find what you miss in Sweden, but I feel you miss Sweden, which I can understand if that is your place of birth. I still like the picture though 🙂

      I have tried the west coast which is lovely but unfortunately not the same. I miss the wilderness that unfortunately not exist in England. But England have other things for example all the nice people 🙂

    Very meditative. I like it very much.

    • petrastridfeldt / Jun 21 2012 1:55 pm

      Thanks a lot for your comment. I have this as a large print and it is very meditative to look at maybe as watching the real sea but close enough 😉

  10. TimCC / Jun 21 2012 9:27 pm

    Total presence. You can smell and feel the water. Great job.

    • petrastridfeldt / Jun 22 2012 9:28 pm

      Thanks your comment it’s about the same as I feel when watching the large print 🙂

    Love this photo!

    Stunning. I’ve always lived near an ocean or a bay or a lake. There’s nothing like the ocean.

    • petrastridfeldt / Jun 22 2012 9:25 pm

      Can’t agree with you more 🙂

  13. Stephen G. Hipperson / Jun 22 2012 9:17 pm

    I’m not sure you can much further from the sea than Macclesfield? Reminds me of work by Hiroshi Sugimoto, very nice.

    • petrastridfeldt / Jun 22 2012 9:24 pm

      Cheers only to be mention in the same sentence as Sugimoto is an honour, thank you 🙂
