Artist's Description

Sun awakes and light touches the grass. The haze makes place for the sun on a glorious day on the Boschplaat a nature reserve on the Dutch island Terschelling.

Shot taken during my early morning walks.
Straight from camera.

    An excellent translation of the national anthem of Terschelling:

To Terschelling

O, Terschelling my little land,
how much do I love you
All who do not praise you,
will just find me deaf

Then I close my ears,
but if it goes to far
Then I can not remain silent,
and punish them immediately

O, Terschelling my little land
so high and so dry
You happily lie there
facing the North Sea

How proud are your dunes,
how white is your sand
How green is your beachgrass,
my beloved Terschellingerland

O Terschelling, my little land,
you are embraced in my heart
Who does not praise you from time to time,
is not worthy of you

For as long as you remain standing,
so steadfast on your sand
Be full of honest people,
my beloved Terschellingerland

The original Terschelling version below (one of the many Fresian versions)

1. Oan Schylge

O, Schylge myn lântse,
wat hab ik dy jeaf
Al wa dy net priizet,
dy fynt my toch deaf:|

Dan slút ik myn earen,
of geet it te bont
Dan kan ik net swye,
mar straf se terstont:|

O Schylge, myn lântse,
sò droeg en sò heag
Wat leisto dir froalik,
de Noardsee yn’t eag :|

Hò trots bin dyn dunen,
hò wyt is dyn sân
Hò grien bin dyn helmen,
myn jeaf Schylgerlân :|

O Schylge, myn lântse,
do leist my oant hort
Wa dy net ris priizet,
dy dogt dy te kort

Sò lang asto steeste,
sò fest op dyn sân
Wês fol brave minsken,
myn jeaf Schylgerlân
