Into the West by JoelBelessa
Into the West

Lay down
Your sweet and weary head
Night is falling
You have come to journey's end
Sleep now
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across the distant shore

Why do you weep?
What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see
All of your fears will pass away
Safe in my arms
You're only sleeping
- Annie Lennox, Into the West

The lighthouse of Kermorvan in Brittany, France. Beyond this coast there are some Islands, the vast atlantic ocean and that's it. The region there is called Finistère which stems from the latin word Finis Terrae and means "The End of the Earth". The entirety of northern france (Normandy & Brittany) is imo one of most beautiful locations in europe and definitly worth a visit. If not for the beautiful coasts and rich cultural heritage, then because of the honest food, the wonderful light and of course the flowers. Flowers are everywhere ...

Be My Guide by JoelBelessa
Be My Guide
Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter- tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther ... And then one fine morning ...
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.
- F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Long exposure some time after sunset at Cap de la Hague, Normandy (France).

Another Trip to Iceland taking place very soon (3 days from now for 2 weeks around the island). Sadly they had the coldest spring since 30 years and not alot of green yet. Well, can't change that ... got my new D800 and 14-24mm loaded up and ready for action. Will make the best out of it :) . Stay tuned.
