Kruf, A J., 2008. Kijkduin, The Hague.

It was the last picture on his camera. My father, Ad Kruf, shot this incredible image weeks before he passed away. It is now more than ten years ago. Time flies, but not the memory. Feels like yesterday that we joined each others company enjoying a good talk and a fine glass of whisk(e)y.

This photo was taken on the 10th of December 2008 16:09:05. Place Kijkduin, The Hague. A crystal clear Dutch beach landscape with a thunderstorm rolling in, the mystic late afternoon December sunlight and the rolling waves under a freezing wind. A picture to live in. As if he foresaw what was coming.
