There was an opening of a photo exhibition in the forest. The people have left and a lonely tent is still there.

Here is another picture I took in Koyasan, Japan. During our visit to Koyasan we stayed in a Buddhist monastery for two nights. Every day we joined the monks in their early morning prayers. This is a picture I took during the fire ceremony, which is part of the morning rituals. I really love the way the flames shine at you. I used my quiet Leica M8 camera so I didn’t disturb anybody.

The small village of “Oost”, which means “east”, in Dutch. For more photos in this series have a look at my gallery of photographs of the island of Texel.

The photo was taken in National Park “Dunes of Texel” in the Netherlands. This area is called “de Slufter”. It was on a foggy morning. The sun was trying to clear the sea fog and the light was beautiful. More information about the Texel Dunes National Park and the “De Slufter” can be found on this Wikipedia page.
