Week of August 30, 2019

This week we explore the quiet places on earth that bring peace, solace, and comfort.

Eastern Vape Landscape Eyeconic Photography

Steynsburg, South Africa

"where the dust settles on my skin where the wind calls my name, where my soul aches to live and yearns to lie down and die where the windmills crank their weary song," Extract of a poem of the Karoo by Helen Lockhart.

This often dry and arid region of South Africa holds its own unique beauty and is often only seen by eyes willing to look. It is a place of silence and aloneness and one's spirit must be strong to survive here. For the visitor it offers a chance to forget the noise.

My Happy Place

Bresewitz, Germany

My happy place is between the village of Bresewitz and the island Oie. There's about a kilometer and a half of pure landscape. No houses, no people. Just you, the sea birds, the bleating of the sheep and the late evening light. It's like detox for pretty much everything. We should all have places like that.


Oqaatsut, Greenland

Göönimaa on saanud viimasel ajal uudistes tähelepanu. Jalutuskäik külas nimega Oqaatsut.

Greenland is in the focus in news again. Walking in village called Oqaatsut.
