Playa del Silencio, Asturias, northern Spain…

“Silence Beach”, indeed, as when you are at the bottom of this small pebble beach, you literally hear nothing else but the sound of the waves echoing against the cliffs – an impression of the end of the world with driftwood and shells all over, awaiting the next tide; a pleasant breeze, an almost turquoise sea, mild silence and inner serenity…

Have a serene and relaxing August, wherever your personal journey takes you! Be careful, stay healthy and safe, folks!

    • Danke schön, Herr KV! coming from an experienced, appreciated and respected scientific psychologist, your generous comment is an honor.

      Even though I always take pictures during my trips, I don’t reckon myself as a photographer at all; what’s essential to me is sharing moments that delight me, challenge me, touch me, make me smile or sigh… if nothing exists behind a photo, I try “to weave” a little story, to figure out a “mise-en-scène”, or just mere sentences, inspired by my images… I love thick lights and compact shades, ’cause they bear such a singular beauty; whenever the sky is blue and cloudless, the sunbeams reveal a thrilling purity that makes everything look wonderful and dazzling, cheerful and responsive, dashing and serene – and then again, we all need some magic in our lives – especially during this global “plague” that has isolated us and has set impassable borders between us and our loved ones… alles gute! 🙂

      • Dear Mel@nie,

        thank you soooo much for your kind answer. Your explanation of your photographing is really interesting. I like your habit if nothing exists behind a photo, you make something up. That’s real creativity, indeed! Thanks and cheers! 🙂
