The Quite beach is alive #2-2014

South Beach, DH

$ 850

Yes indeed, in this scenario it certainly is alive! Sand drifts happening right before my very eyes, water puddles forming and flowing with the direction of the wind. It is a good thing that that pier at the end of this beach was preventing the sand from blowing over into Scheveningen, otherwise the boulevard would have certainly been buried under! Life is starting to pick up, you can see 2 beach pavilions already in operation.

Kite surfer and children at the beach

oil on canvas - 50 x 50 cm
painted on location - South Beach, The Hague

As you can see the hot summer temperatures are still not with us, as the wind is still blowin' hard. However it didn't stop these kids from having a blast at the waters edge, as they were enjoying jumping about at the incoming waves. The little sister looks on and keeps guard of the soccer ball. In the distance a kite surfer blasting through the waves, man do those guys move fast!

Path to the Sea

I walk down the path leading to the sea almost daily. So do many other people, especially dog lovers and persons who appreciate Nature more than the Asphalt Jungle!
