This is my first seascape in quite some time, but certainly not my last
Not very long ago I decided to re-work an old series of boat pictures that I shot a few years ago near the Gros Morne National Park on Newfoundland island, Canada. Originally, I wanted to convey the sense of quietness, peace and eeriness that I felt while shooting but I was not happy with the result from then.
Generally speaking, I am in love with seascapes. But I wanted this (short) series of images to be more original than the "usual" water/land/sky composition. That’s why I added another component that actually focuses the attention: boats…

When I was a kid, I was fascinated by Mythology. To me, it was like reading incredible stories of monsters, heroes and wonderful adventures. I am still very much influenced by these, and when working of this set of photographs, I could not help but think of the Styx river. In Greek mythology, it was the border between Earth and the Underworld. In order for the newly deceased to pass the river, they had to pay a toll, and Charon would bring them to the other side in his boat…
