NATURE HAS HELPED ME GET THROUGH A DARK TIME

oneness

While going through a stressful and dark time in my life I discovered that nature had a healing effect on me. I felt supported, peaceful and free while spending time in the wild – my mind went quiet, as I was noticing the details and listening to the sounds around me.

I was also lucky to find my passion for nature photography during that time.

In this article I would like to share my photos and poems with you. My aim is to show the healing process that occurs when we are out in the wild and inspire others to spend more time in nature and experience it in a deeper way.

A growing amount of research shows that spending time in nature is very beneficial for our physical and mental health, creativity, attention etc. Even looking at images of nature reduces the amount of stress hormones in our bodies.

I hope that I can spread this message through my photography and raise awareness about nature therapy, which is now gaining popularity.

The photos are self portraits.

Volatility

Oh, how could I put words on

The vastness of the ocean?

Its power,

Volatility

And never ending motion…

Spreading wings

The longing for freedom

In a world so controlled

Seems to originate

In the depth of my core.

Spreading my wings,

Learning from birds –

Perhaps the captivity

Is just in my thoughts?

Oneness

I’m one with the wind,

It’s flowing right through me.

Transparent to its force

I’m flying and crooning.

I’m one with the sky,

It’s glowing right through me.

Transparent to its glory I’m flying and crooning.
