Sailscape: Landscape of the Sea

DSC00311

Sailscape is  a type of landscape which is predominated by Sea.

It is characterized by the tones blue, sand, white and grey steel.

It is defined as practical and symbolic construction of the oceanic environment and as part of the navigation and geographical imagination [1]

In addition to that, the navigator’s scope and the ship’s trip have been regarded as spatial agents in the construction of the landscape.

The sunset brings another tones like pink, peach, purple and finally, the most dark black.

That’s the enchantment of the Sea: the visible changes and the infinite permanence.

Everything which is valuable remains.
