Sri Lanka, Ella, Ella Rock, 2017.
Shot from our apartment, on a very misty day.
the tree was standing at the edge of a cliff on the famous Ella Rock peak. At the right moment, when the clouds of the sky formed themselves around the slopes of the mountain, I shot the sight of only this tree.
Ukraine, Carpathians, 2017
During a rainy day we drove up a mountains, got inside the lift towards skying slopes and after having a had a nice view, glue wine and some macro shots, it was time to head back home.
During that trip I saw this black tar road, surrounded by dark forests and misty, foggy clouds crawling up the mountain.
I came across a lot of lakes during my Bike-journey ( Royal Enfield Himalaya) through the south of India. We drove through Kerala, Wayanad and early morning I got out to catch the sunrise over the lake. An amazing place. The lakes in India tend to be quit dead, some fish still live there but its not aloud to swim there and the trees, well the photo speaks for it self.
Ukraine, Carpathian's, 2017.
Show Yourself Ukraine! What an amazing moment somewhere in a forest when the sun decided to welcome me from behing the trees.
Just before the sunsets, the light on these lava rocks is just perfect. I used a wide-angle lens to get more of the foreground in the image, because I think the detail in these rock vegestation is really cool.
Sri lanka, Adam's Peak, 2017.
walking on the shore at a lake in front of the Adam's Peak mountain in Sri Lanka, I was lucky to see this incredible breaking sun beams that made the whole scenery look mesmerizing.
A little bit later , when the sun was at its lowest point behind the mountain, the colors started to be so warm and nice.
Nepal, Himalaya's, 2017.
Coming down the mountains after hiking 6 days was so good. But this was not our endstation, we had to go up again and hike for another 3 -4 days.
This point in our hike was at about 1800 meters and this river comes straight out of Tibet. That night we spend drinking local beer, playing cards and sleeping in a sort of warehouse.
What a great adventure!
Asia, Thailand, Koh Lanta, 2016.
Hostile Ocean. A place you can't be able to get into the ocean. Rocks that appear to be drifting through clouds, floating on water
The view from our bedroom window in Sri Lanka, was not that bad I would say.
I shot this image during the slow sunrise on this beautiful island.
The house we were in was almost surrounded by a Lake and swamps and mangroves. The birds species were incredible, I think there were as much as +30 different kinds of birds only at this lake, and some very nice ones like kingfishers, Bee eaters and even Bats in the evening!
Portugal, Vila Real.
Vila Real is a reasonable sized city, surround by mountains that are 30 min driving away from the center. Really worth going to the top of these mountains, because the Parque Natural do Alvão lies on 1000 meter high area, the vegetation is that from higher mountains, and you can find Granite stones everywhere.
What I didn't know when I was setting up my tripod and picking the best place in this windy location, was that there are actually wild wolfs walking around stil in Parque Natural do Alvão..
Nepal, Himalaya, Yala Peak 2017.
One of the places I will come back for sure is the Himalayas. What a beautiful, immense, unpopulated and natural place that is. You are sure to be humbled by the Earth's beauty here. The mountains are so high, the skies so bright and clear and the Nature just totally sucks you in the scenery.
This photo I took just after my nightscape photography, and it was around 05:30 that this purple haze was visible, just before the first sunshine would hit the mountain top of the highest mountains. ( 6km)
On this morning, we took off before 06:00 AM to find hyena's because the night before we heard them laugh.
We did found 1 hyena that morning, but my camera equipment was not up for the early morning darkness. A little bit later we were searching the planes for other animals and after a while we found this big group of buffalo's grazing the fields early morning.
Just as the sun was about to rise we stopped the jeep, we took out our camera's and a couple of minutes later the whole sky was on fire! What an amazing site. The layers in the landscape, the buffalo's walking around creating dust, the small bird opening up its wings just as I hit the button and the remarkable colors of the Tanzania nature. What a sight it was!
San Miguel, Azoren, Portugal.
A lava stone dock made for some small boats to dock, if the weather is clear. The clouds that stay inside of the volcano lake, making it look incredibly dark and mysterious.
The Azoren: An unbelievable group of island in the middle of the Atlantic ocean, waiting to be discovered.
Koh Lanta, Thailand, 2016.
Looking for the best place to show a 3 dimensional image of the dead tree ( has been there for a long time), I climbed rocks, and went up the cliff to get the right picture.
The sun was just setting behind the horizon, when I think you can get the best pictures of the day. The tree is showing directions to the boats on the open water..
Nepal, Himalaya's, Langtang, 2017.
Standing here on the debris from the earthquake from 2015 in the Himalayas, is so strange. There was once a big mountain village called Langtang. This whole village has been wiped from the face of the earth since this earthquake created a landslide that was too powerful.
All that remains are the rocks from the mountains and the dead body's that have not been found underneath this rubble.
Germany, Nord Rhein Westfalen, Tecklenburg,
Driving across the hill side of Nord-Rhein-Westfalen Germany, I saw this tree in the middle of Corn fields. Really stunning composition of the lines of corn and the tree. In the back you see the hill side.
Sri Lanka, Adam's Peak, 2017.
Italy, Lago di Como, 2017.
Visiting Italy is always the perfect moment to capture beautiful images of landscapes, buildings, architecture and nature.
Here we visited Lago di Como with my friend Ton Kuper. We both have different camera's and lenses, resulting in different pictures.
In the back of this images you can spot the legs of the Alps and in the front a small Lake town.
The Netherlands, Het Twickel, Twickelervaart, 2018
A lovely morning in the Estate of Twickel, in the Netherlands. The river called Twickelevaart has created a perfect, romantic setting near a castle. The trees grew just on the edge of the water, creating a perfect photogenic place.
