Safe Harbor I

Safe Harbor I

At the end of March 2017, I was driving with a friend through the Zeeland province of the Netherlands. It is a very sparsely populated province in the country and the roads were quiet and deserted on that spring morning. This photo was taken while exploring the Grevelingenmeer, basically a massive inlet created by the massive Delta Works to protect the southwestern part of the Netherlands from flooding. These rocks trailing off into the distance exemplify the persistence of Dutch men and women over many centuries living next to the vast ocean and finding peace and safety there.

This image is one of the series photographs all exploring the depth and longing power of perspective. The viewer's attention is inevitably drawn to the point of convergence which we all interpret differently thus creating our own stories about this place.
