Sandra Bartocha - Dunes by Night

 

This year over New Year I spent some time in the northern parts of Denmark where there is a rough and beautiful landscape. The dunes around Skagen convey this really wild feeling for me. The weather wasn’t that great … a lot of wind and rain … but one night we were rewarded with some stars and some beautiful moving clouds …

    I love dunes... The hometown, Vagos, had a great dunar sistem created by the Vouga's river delta, and by the convergence of currents. So we have dunes with 27m high, that in the beginning of the 20th century were completely free of any vegetation... dunes of a pure white sand... although incredibly beautifull they were a menace to the loca populations, cause the eolic sands covered the crops and menaced the small villages... so they were forested creating, using the french technique. Now where once were dunes of pure white there is an enormous Pinewood of Maritime Pine that strechtes for 40km with 5km maximum width. The primary dune was manmade, using a mobile fencing sistem in order to trap the eolic sands. This dunes are something of amazing, they are an ode to man's resistence and wit but also to the beautifull resilliance of nature... I've also tried to capture their spirit at night, but I was as successfull as you!! It's trully a great image! I have one day photo that I love the most, check it ou if you want;

    I would like to apologise by a lapse on my previous comment, where we read:

    I meant to write
