Soul of the Forest

The Netherlands, Drenthe, 2017

I love wandering in the forest. If you're lucky, in the morning you can walk all alone. Take your time when taking a picture. Especially when its the start of Autumn and you can see moods, that are only available at a certain point in time.

On the hill called Sallandse Heuvelrug in The Netherlands, I was able to look all the way down to Rijssen, a place approximately 10km away. 

In holland everything is flat, except of a couple of small hills, like this one. The fact that you can look so far is unique by it self, because we are not used to that in Holland. 

The color shift of this sunrise, early morning before the cold winter starts in Holland, is incredible. The layers of forrest are beautifully visible because of the morning fog and the colors that morning were memorable.

A walk in the park

When I was still living in Holland, I took all the time I could find to shoot pictures of our small, flat country. I am all about nature and the beauty it has to offer us. 
Of course this path has been created by men, but the nature is powerful enough to put it's own signature on it!

An Autumn Afternoon

Walking in this forest, called 'De witte Vennen' on the border of The Netherlands and Germany, I found this path a perfect example of what Autumn feels like, when you are in Holland.

The trees line up perfectly, letting sunshine though, that shines on the path and making the colors of Autumn so much richer than they already are.

Tulips

The Netherlands, Alkmaar, 2016.

In the month May, you can drive through the North of Holland and find endless fields of the National flower of Holland; The Tulip ( Tulp in Dutch).

These pink tulips make a perfect contrast against the yellow tulips in the back.

The Netherlands, Twente, Enschede 2016.

Zooming in on a spiderweb is really awesome, but I would say perfect, when you have the morning sun highlighting the drops of water from the morning dew. 

It's quite a spectacle and I see chandeliers, candles and christmas balls :)

Spider's in the morning

The Netherlands, Twente, 2015.

before the sun gets too powerful, you can find so many spiderwebs in open fields. The waterdrops on all the web's threats give a powerful look into the structure of the web and the strength it has to carry the load. 

Morning Glory
       
     
Morning Glory

The Netherlands, Twekkelo, 2015.

on my first little stept to become a hobby photographer I was equipped with nothing more than a Canon D1000 and a set of EF-lenses. 

I think I show in my first pictures, that the camera is not that important. Of course zooming in on the image you see less details, than I now see with my D5, but nevertheless I was able to capture stunning sceneries. 

This I call the Morning Glory because the power of the sun is clearly visible when mist is vaporized it sun rays.

The Netherlands, Deventer, 2017.

1 of the better looking city's of holland with a rich history is Deventer. Its located at the river 'de Ijssel' and has a beautiful marketplace. 

Here on the banks of the river you can find cow's eating on a isolated island and in the back you see the big church. Long expo during the day of about 1.5 minutes.

The Netherlands, 't Twickel, 2017.

The lands surrounding the old castle 't Twickel in the east of The Netherlands are a must see for nature lovers. It's a good example of the dutch heritage of nature and forrest. 

These 2 horseman ( woman) just came around the corner all the way in the back riding alongside each other and then turning somewhere into the woods. I love the mood I captured here with a little opening at the middel of the road giving it the perfect sense of depth.

The Netherlands, Bergentheim, 2017

Amanita muscaria, commonly known as the fly agaric or fly amanita.

Shot this perfect example of 3 Amanita's, standing next to a path near my house. Perfect colors when shooting with a wide-angle lens. The Vignetting I only added a little bit.

The Netherlands, Rotterdam, 2017

From this angle you can see all the way up to the point of the offices of KPN company. In this picture I like the shadows and white tones that are created by both the sun and clear sky and also the lines of the building. The architect has chosen a particular building material with a lot of glass to give the lines strengt when hit by the sun.
