Park Bench in Winter, by Jens Hieke

The park around Moritzburg castle near Dresden, Germany, lies like an island of frozen time. On blue-black winter days, when frost brings everything to a halt, the bench might be dreaming of the people resting here on warmer days. The last light of the day is reflected by the ice crevices of the frozen lake, before the long cold darkness devours everything. My world surrenders to the night.

Photographer: Jens Hieke (Dresden, Germany) Registered
Jens Hieke was born in 1967 and lives in Leipzig, Saxony, Germany. Though he was a graduate librarian, but working for a broadcaster for some time. He was always fascinated by the unlimited diversity of the world, and only a few years ago he discovered photography as a wonderful possibility to capture the transient, constantly changing beauty of humans, animals and things. Actually a man of words, the passion for photography is more than an addition to his other love, the literature. He had previously photographed with the Samsung NV24HD, but currently the Canon EOS 500D is his catcher.
