*** Sounds of Silence *** Tribute to my Dad...
° 24 01 1938 - † 18 05 2004
The pictures, the songs....For you Dad.......
Take My hand, and let Me lead You over the river.
Let Me guide You over the narrow bridge..
Let Me show You the beauty wich rests on the other side.
That beauty, my sweet dad , is Your True Self
"If tears could build a stair, and memories a bridge,
then I climd up high, to bring you back to me..."
Sounds of Silence....Silence......... like a cancer grows

Beautiful gallery. thanks for sharing. voted
These are a wonderful tribute to your dad. So calm and soothing. You have literally "sculpted with light". Beautifully done.
The lighting in your images is exceptional. Im guessing the area you are in and the time of day simplifies the situation but you still have to compose and expose for each image. The images really go well with your opening poem and the gallery in general is wonderful, to many images to click on as they are all well done.. great work
Thank you for sharing this tribute, he would be proud. V
All these images are stunning. The different shades of greens in these photos are fantastic. Great job.

I think it's fair to say you've captured the imagination of everybody that's viewed this gallery. a magnificent tribute to your father. I'm sure he was a wonderful man and this is a fitting tribute.not only have you done your father proud, yourself to.I could've left comments on every photo. in some cases photo is the wrong word "work of art" "if motor racing was easy" quoted Allen prost the same can be attributed to photography.you have a great talent. and I salut you.

Fantastic gallery.Absolutly gorgeous images. V!

Pleasant it was, when woods were green
And winds were soft and low,
To lie amid some sylvan scene,
Where, the long drooping boughs between,
Shadows dark and sunlight sheen
Alternate come and go;
Your pictures are a absolute power of tribute to your Dad. I could paste my entire house in your photos and loose myself for ever.
Your dad would be proud.

Ik ben vandaag op deze site terechtgekomen, wat een verrassing!De tranen komen ook bij mij naar boven bij het zien van je foto's en het beluisteren van de muziek. En ik vind het ook ontroerend dat zoveel mensen al een aantal jaar hun reacties geven. Inspirerend.
Erg mooi, er zijn gewoon geen woorden voor.
Lots of very ice pictures with special mistery mood.
This is beautiful. I was so touched.
The wind will hear you and take your messages to your Dad...always in our hearts...they will remain...forever...our Dad.
your father can be proud of you
uw pa kan echt trots op u zijn... mooie compositie... veel dankbaarheid te proeven
wow. They are all beautiful...made even more so by the meaning to them. They all look like paintings. Amazing! One of the few galleries I have come across that touched me. SImply amazing.
I am not writing as a photographer but as a father of two daughters and the son a wonderful father who passed away. I wish and hope that my daughters will remember me thus when my path will be at its end. There is no greater accomplishment that a father can achieve and no greater wish that a father can have than to be remembered and more important understood.
Thank you for showing a father that this can be achieved.
I cried. This is so sad, but what a way to make a tribute to your dad. I knwo how it is to lose a loved one, I did a few years back, and she was only 15 by two days. What beauty this gallery has, so peaceful!
O God, I cried, no dark disguise
Can e'er hereafter hide from me
Thy radiant identity!
Thou canst not move across the grass
But my quick eyes will see Thee pass,
Nor speak, however silently,
But my hushed voice will answer Thee.
I know the path that tells Thy way
Through the cool eve of every day;
God, I can push the grass apart
And lay my finger on Thy heart!
The words above are from Edna St. Vincent Millay. The sentiments are mine. Thank you for the marvelous pictures.
Just a wonderful work
Best regards from Spain
I cried! Your tribute to father is very touching.
You brought tears to my eyes, a touching and unforgetable gallery!!!

Stunning Pictures very powerful i love it Great work done with heart
Amazing, just amazing. There are no words to describe this.
Te words that come to mind aren't enough!

Thanks for turning the horror of cancer and death into beauty. It helps. You built a cathedral. Avec tout mon respect.

And yet, as INCREDIBLE as they are
I've got to beleive that this is just the beginning. WOW!

Fantastic, peace and tranquility captured in full.
These are the best i've seen> the lighting is amazing! WOW! great job
You have been lucky to have Dad, to whom you can write like that and give that kind of photos!
The Nature and the forest have allways been something special to me, like therapy. When I have had sorrow, difficulties, I have gone to forest and by and by I have begun to see around me. Light and shade and the combination of those... I have seen that beauty, but I never could take/made photos like you! Thank you for that beayty :)
Wonderful tribute! Your images seem to reflect the wonderful bond that must exist between your father and yourself. A wonderful and peaceful bond that is not broken by time or place.
Craig from Utah
Monique, I found your work inspiring when I first found it over a year ago. I come back today after losing my wife of 26 years and find new, sacred meaning in them. Thank you again.
Very very nice photos, like the harmonie in the pictures.. :)
Can I ask you who made the music playing?..
Picture him when he was at his best firmly in your mind, and as time goes on and memories dim you can come back to this gallery and rekindle your time together. Regards
Letterlijk en figuurlijk......hier wordt een mens stil van.....

carol j. phipps
Thank you for sharing your heart and a piece of your soul.
Amazingly beautiful. Thank you.
His spirit lives on in you.
Your photos have brought tears to my eyes; seldom if ever have images moved me the way your fantastic work has. You are not only an incredibly talented photographer but, most importantly, a precious human being. Your husband and daughter are lucky to have you --as is the world, for more like you is what this world sorely needs.
God bless you,
Marcos Rodriguez / www.aukeramen.com
very moving and spiritual. thank you
Beautiful! This is a wonderful tribute to your father. You must have loved your father very much. Im sure your father was very proud of you.

woordenloos mooi Monique.
I keep coming back for inspiration. Really beautiful.
Monique, enkele dagen geleden bij het zien van dit album en An Angel in Wonderland kwamen al mijn emoties naar boven. De tranen kon ik moeilijk bedwingen. Dit album heeft me diep geraakt, de muziek, het verlies van je vader, je mooie dochter. Het heeft me ook tot denken gezet, ik heb gisteren een diep gesprek gehad met mijn vader, bedankt Monique
Na het luisteren en bekijken van deze gallery wilde ik stilletjes verdwijnen ... ik ben zeer onder de indruk en durfde eigenlijk niet zo goed een berichtje achter te laten ... gewoon omdat dit zo'n persoonlijke gallery is ... tot ik naar beneden scrollde en zag dat er al vele voor mij waren geweest ... en dus schrijf ik mijn tekstje hier neer.
Het is echt prachtig ... een mooie ode aan een belangrijk man in je leven ...
I once drove past Lommel and didn't pay a second glance. There is some hidden treasure there when the sun comes out to dance. Your dad had a Very talented daughter.
J. Scott Coile
So well done. A touching tribute gallery. My hat's off!
This is like the paradise
Everyone should have a daughter that shows and appreciates the love of her father. I'm sending this to my daughter. It's something every daughter needs to see. Thank you. I'm sure your father is extremely proud of you. Great work!
A few things in life you can truly look back on and be completely proud of....this is one of yours

Very beautiful and very touching. I know your father would have loved this tribute and I am sure he was very proud of you and loved you very much. You are a wonderful daughter!
I congratulate you for these absolute wonderful pictures. Excellent Eye.

Most exceptionally beautiful Monique. Thank you for this sharing and for inspiration. Simon
Dear Monique, I just don't have the words to express my feelings about your work. They are so beautiful and breath-taking. The 'Sound of Silence' is an apt title. I could almost hear the silence... I hope I can be half as you one day!
So I want to be a tree. a tree in the forest and no human being interrupt me!

I am sorry for the loss of your Dad, and hope these images you have made help to celebrate his life... be well, and thanks, don
I was doing my daily visit to your galleries until I reached here. I'm feeling very touched Monique for your Dad loss, your words, your pictures and your music for him. I'm very sure that he would be very proud having such a lovely daughter like you.
Please accept my sympathy for all this pain you having.
This is absolutely amazing.....my father just passed away from cancer this month, April 6th. Those photographs remind me so much of him. He had a painting in his office that looked so similar to your pictures. I miss him terribly. I do hope it gets better with time. Thank you for sharing these. I feel connected to you in someway. My name, our fathers, the beauty of these photos. I feel I was brought to this site as a beginning to the healing process. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I cannot find my words. I think that's how I imagined heaven.......
Best of all galleries.
..without a doubt, some of the best photography I have ever seen. After losing my daughter of 8 years of age to cancer and then my father to cancer, the poem was very heartfelt. No true'er words spoken, the pictures, without doubt, the best, excellent job to you.......
Superb!. But. Who are the Baby and the Woman in the Pictures?. Are they accidental or Insidental?
ik wist niet dat Limburg zo mooi is
dat dit gewoon in ons eigen landje bestaat!!
erg mooi gedaan, mijn complimenten
Now this is what I call a gallery. Amazing .
Nice! You manage to convert what would just be normal photographs into magic with your artistic vision and skill.

Just discover ur work..
my respect for U-
what a beautiful and great work.
Camon, hope that u have a good weekend.
Fantastic gallery. Very beautiful.
stunning, great understanding of light and form, you are an especially talented photographer
Monique I have to second what the other person said. I have looked at allot of photos admired allot of photographers and have to say that yourself, Matthew Reilley & Shelia Smart are by far the most talented photographers I have seen. You all possess an insight and a talent that few people have and I have been doing photography for 30 + years. I love your tribut to your Dad, it was special and have to ask how do you find time to photograph all you do. How do you get the sharpness you do from your equiptment. I have to go back to the drawing board.
Phew! Excellent! Best Ive seen for a long time,( and belive me! Ive seen alot!!! LOL)
every image is a good as the last one! Mac UK
No words are needed, your images said it all.
Superb. You have magnificent talented soul. You reach the feeling of Zen. Congratulation!
This gallery is BREATHTAKING!!! Treat to look at...
It's beautiful and very touched.
amazing... I can't fined the words to say what I think.
Mijn gedachten gingen ook terug naar mijn overleden vader.
Die hield veel van de natuur en maakte in zijn vrije tijd veel natuurfoto's.
Voor zijn werk was hij reclamefotograaf.
Kon onze vader dit maar zien. Zij zouden trots zijn.
Ga zo door met foto's maken Monique.... ik geniet er enorm van!!
Simply stunning, probably the best collection of images I have ever had the privilege to view. Your Dad would be very proud of you.
Heavenly peace. Magical pictures for a Love Dad. Your Dad will allways be very proud of you. Best regards, Praseno.
Fantastic! What time of day? Is this how it looked in person? Lots of fog?
A wonderful tribute.
Without a doubt the most beautiful and tranquil Gallery I have had the pleasure to view. Thanks for sharing. Pax tecum
Om helemaal stil van te worden. Wat een gallery.Hier kom ik tot rust en voel me verenigd met zij die er niet meer zijn. Ontroerend... ontroerend mooi. Dank om zoveel schoonheid.
Wonderful gallery.. you have captured the forest well.. the feeling you have while there.
Beautiful images! You've really captured that feeling of awe that can catch you suddenly as the light shifts or a view insinuates itself upon the senses...great pix :)
Not just talented but gifted - you have a big soul Monique.
This is the best I've ever seen. I couldn't stop seeing them. What a wonderful work! It's the nicest place to rest my eyes. Thanks for sharing.
This gallery has a great sense of calm.Keep doing what you do!
Beautiful beautiful stunning gallery of photos. Such delicacy... I am convinced your father is proud, wherever he is.
I love coming to this gallery and just look. Makes me so calm and good feeling. THANK YOU SO MUCH for this.
i hear george winston's piano.
Wondering how you are, Monique. I know this gallery is a comfort to your Dad, who worries about you daily, and hopes that you are beginning to slowly heal. He knows it's going to take a very long time. But he also knows you are a strong woman with the comfort and love of your husband and daughter. He must be so proud of your abilities, and of your beautiful tribute, and I know that this comforts him, knowing you spend so much time creating beautiful examples of your love for him. I still think about you. Take good care.
magificent... the pictures look so dreamy that i was so absorbed into it.
This is the world at its best and art as it should be- consciousness changing !!! stirring and moving images. Anyone who loves nature will be moved by these images.
Een bizonder mooie collage,
Je liefde voor je vader had je niet mooier uit kunnen drukken,echt schitterend.
big props on your pics i like the light effects
Joseph L. Murphy
amazing images I only hope to be half as talented someday.
Words fail, but if I must use them ... indescribably beautiful.
"Show me, O Lord, my life's end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting is my life. You have made my days a mere handbreadth; the span of my years is as nothing before you. Each man's life is but a breath. Man is a mere phantom as he goes to and fro: He bustles about, but only in vain; he heaps up wealth, not knowing who will get it. But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you." Psalm 39:4-7
Beautiful tribute to your father, Monique -- you honor him!
Watch and dream
Watch and imagine yourself there
Watch and walk through beautiful woodland
Be at Peace
Is this what they call beauty,is this what they call divine? Its become my place of refuge from now on! Reminds me of my childhood and the woods and leaves around our government bunglow, so thick and content with the early morning showers!!Masterpiece!
great images and sound ! It was refreshing
Beautiful. It's so serene and calming and the pictures...I don't have words to describe them.
So refreshing to the eye! So calm..so serene..Thanx for sharing!
Special mood presented here.
Your images are incredible. Very inspiring. So serene. ~~april
Beautiful Gallery,You have an excellent eye.:-)
Wow, my mouth is still open and my eyes can't believe what they saw. The light and shadows are fantastic. Thank you for sharing.
wonderful images, very moving. just love the fog in the trees, so well done. thanks for sharing your tribute to you Dad.
These are a very lovely tribute. They are extremely nice photos that touch the heart. Thank you for sharing these photos with others. ~~april
I do believe these are some of the most beautiful photos I've ever seen.
Beligum is just the right place to find such beauty. Wonderful tribute
to your father.
What a lovely memorial you've created-- one of beauty and tranquillity, and a sense of being one with the earth instead of being merely on it. You have my sympathies on the loss of your father-- I've been down that road myself, and can promise you that it WILL get better. In time, what you'll remember is the love, and not the loss.
I like how you see the sunrays beeming through the forest.
excellent gallery!! sorry about ur father..
WHEN PHOTOGRAPHY MEETS POETRY !!
THESE COMPOSITIONS ARE MAGIC !!
I FEEL ZEN AFTER SEE IT !!
POETIC, MAGIC, FAIERIC, PURE IS YOUR WORK.
I feel my words are insufficient to describe your amazing work, you have beautifully captured the emotion, a nice tribute to your father. My father passed away few months ago and I'm touched and very much inspired to see your pictures and planning to do something similar.
Good job! Keep it up.
I am moved by these... I am usually obsessed with portrait work but this has opened my eyes to other possibilites. Such beauty here, so beautiful.
A beautiful tribute to your father. Many of your images show a path, and are beautiful from a photographic standpoint, but they also have an etherial quality to them that makes me reflect on "the path" that my father has also taken. I can only hope that, like in your images, there is a Divine light that guides the way.
These woods look full of mystery and yet cozy and amusing to the eyes.
You make me feel like getting lost in them. I especially liked the one with the small bridge.
Your dad must be proud of you.
Awe inspiring, absolutely beautiful! Some of the most amazing photos I've seen in a long time. A stunning tribute to your father.
My dad never wanted me...so this is very moving. I can't fathom having such love for ones father. Aside from that...these are some of the most breathtaking images I've seen.
Truly inspiring work here.I keep coming back here many a times since going through your work is a learning in itself.Congratulations and Good luck.
Maybe It was the first time to take a amasing effect when I saw a picture.
Monique, your shots are truely amazing, incredibly beautiful and provocative.
I've followed your work for a while. I hope to be half as good as you one day.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for your comments on my gallery about my grandmother.
Your gallery is truly an emotional tribute to your dad.
May your photography give you the power to process these hard times.
Absolutly stunning, Very very beautiful.
A Fine tribute to a loved parent.
Your Dad will be very proud.
What a moving experience. Thank you so much for showing us all there is beauty around us.
Stunning, simply stunning, and very moving. I wish I had these in my portfolio
Lovely dreamy gallery
Very touching gallery, I lost my dad myself over a year ago and I can tell you that there was no better or more beautiful way to show your dad how much you love him. Just stunnind and I am sure your dad is watching this and feels very proud. Thank you for sharing.
Thanks for an inspiration. Your Dad will live forever in Your Forest Spirits.
You have captured some powerfully spiritual images. your Father seems to live to through your work...outstanding talent! keep em coming!

Stunning, you really achieved great serene mood with your pics. That's how I always imagined in my mind the Lothlorien forest in the Lord of The Rings trilogy before it was created on film. Congratulations and thanks for sharing.

Very nice! How can you do it?
It is not so many "green" in my country :-(

These are some of the most emotive and beautiful forest images I think I've ever seen...Superb work - Congratulations. Rob
Very nice gallery. Very effective use of soft filtering or am I wrong? Your photos are to be commanded. Keep up the great work!
Ooohh... How I wish I could take pictures half this good. This is a very inspirational gallery. Thanks!
To say that your work is excellent would be an understatement. Absolutely beautiful.
- Jim Crotty
Thanks Richard, i appreciate your comment! I have send you a peronal message about the prints.
Best Regards, Monique
Hello, I find all of your galleries, but particularly this one, simply breathtaking, like a shock to one's system. I simply did not know scenes like these existed in nature. I would like to place a order, possibly on real canvas, of one of your photograph. Please let me know if I can place an order, thank you in advance.
Best Regards, and thank you for sharing. Richard
I think this is one of the best gallery in the pbase; complimenti!
Perfect moment, perfect places, perfect photos!
Wow ! what wonderful photos ! looking at them gives calm feeling.
Wonderful gallery, the images have a mystical feeling. Here is one vote and thank you for the inspiration.
Scott, thank you so much!
The location, Belgium, name of the city is Lommel.
All pictures are digital (Canon 10D and Canon D30)
From wich picture do you want the exif? I will mail this to you, please let me know by mail.
Hi Linda, you have mail, thanks for the nice comments!
AMAZING - where is this location? Film or digital? What settings?
These are the most breathtaking photographs I have ever seen. After a stressful day, I "visit" your hometown often at this website for peace and serenity. Are you a professional photographer? Do you sell your photographs?
I would be most interested in putting some of your photographs in my home so I'd always have a little "piece of peace" and a slice of heaven on Earth. So, contact me if your work is ever for sell. If not, I will simply continue visiting this blessed, peaceful place. Thank you for sharing your beautiful hometown with us. Thank you, Monique.
It's images like these that make you realize how good God is! Wow! Nice work! Incredible!
Merci pour vos très belles photos.
I will not let you die stupid ;)
These images are taken in my hometown, Lommel Belgium.
About the permission given by me... i am a member from SOFAM, this means, when one from my images will be published without my written permission,i'm protected by them...i am the copyrightholder. As long as my images will be used as personal wallpaper its ok, but when someone will be getting proffit out one of my pictures this is another story :)
I wish you a very very long life !
Alf from Schwetzingen
All of your pictures are very good, some are really excellent (in my humble opinion). But, please, don't let me die stupid and answer me two questions:
- Where is this beautiful scenery (or is it "landscape"?), where you took them photos?
- What do you mean by "...and are not to be downloaded unless permission is given by the owner."? In the very moment one sees them on his/her monitor, they *ARE* downloaded!
With the best wishes for your future work
What a set of photos you have I found to be Beautiful, relaxing, and artful.....Ric
When appreciating these pictures
Sounds seems stepping out from the woods quietly
The silence feeling comes into heart
This is one of the most great albums i have seen!
I want to thank you all so hard for these kind and warm comments!
These words means so much to me.........Thanks x...Monique
Monique - This gallery is just outstanding - a truly spiritual visual breathtaking experience. How beautiful is God's Earth and how truly talented you are to be able to show His creation with such sensitivity. Thank you, Abba
Words are insufficient for such beautiful images. Wow.
Literally breathtaking!!! I love the title you've come up for these mesmerizingly beautiful photos, too! Vera. :-)
IT LOOKS LIKE A MAGIC PLACE .SO BEAUTIFUL ,IF I COULD LIVE IN THERE ,THAT IS WONDERFUL!
Each image is pure magic... I can almost expect to see a unicorn hiding in the light rays. Tracy!
Wonderful , surreal , mysterious images full of mood and imagination
Nicely done - very enchanting!
Wonderful nature gallery Monique!
Ohhhh love these mysterious forest pictures, they are out of another world, a fairytale! Beautifully shots Monique!! /Zevs
Best nature gallery yet! I love every one of them! Like going home...in a dream
Wonderful images. I actually heard the "sounds of silence".
Wonderfully compelling, almost dreamy.
Zoals gezegd,heb ik even de tijd genomen om je site te bezoeken.
Kortom prachtig,je hebt talent je weet je plaatjes te nemen.
Er zijn er bij die een award zouden winnen.
Ik zou zeggen ,keep up de good work.
Een ding is zeker doe verder en je bereikt de top.
Heb er altijd zelf een passie voor gehad,maar jammer genoeg ,no time.
Tot hoors Patrick
Monique, these photos are wonderful. Very sensitive. I love the morning light.
Thanks for sharing them.
Oooh...your gallery with all the fall pix was my favorite until I saw this one...now I can't decide! They are both WONDERFUL!!! FANTASTIC use of color and line and imagination! Every one of these photos looks delicious enough to eat! Thank you SO much for sharing with us! :-)
Beautiful work. Peaceful and delighful. "You have the eye"

OUTSTANDING Monique. Truly beautiful work and images that make me feel at peace. Wonderful viewing. All the best Monique.
Danny (nzmacro ;))
Looks like we are off for better shooting once we're alone. Very familiar place to me this must be, only I don't think I am such an early riser to try this myself. I love what you did with the contrast; it's a very powerful silence and the music was more than appropriate :)
This is great stuff you have on this gallery.
Very nice ambience and beautiful colors, those with reflections are gorgeous, loved it.
