Curtain of a spider

The Netherlands, Bergentheim, 2017

I am blessed with the house I am living in at the moment. It has a little lake and a boat. I went out early morning, and shot this spiderweb touching the water of the lake.

Vaporized

Just as the sun was rising above this field, I catched the morning dew just before it was vaporized.

The drop of water was gone after a few minutes, but here it still standes out so nice. 

Simplicity
       
     
Simplicity

A shot from Spain. Just stopping the car and looking around make you able to see not only the wide landscapes but allows you to have a look at the details of the surrounding. Is it always interesting? Now, not always, but here I did saw something that caught my eye: A small high grown weed, just on the edge of a dried out riverbed. 

Digital photography allows for very easy manipulation of colors to black and white. I normally change the settings of my camera so I know what I am looking at when seeing the image in B&W on my camerascreen. Here it was not needed, because the white little leaves were so contrasting with the dark background, that I could see without B&W. I totally like the result. Simplicity

Blue Icarus

Macro of a blue Icarus, sitting on a grass sprout. 

Incredible detailes in the body area. You can see the little hairs on the wings of the Icarus. 

I was lucky finding this Icarus. Just as I was about to put away my camera and go home, I saw this one flying around so I followed it. Lucky for me it landed on this sprout and didn't move, even after I came just a couple of centimeters from this little fellow.

Backlight

Lovely back light on this weed, that grows in berm near the roads in Holland.

I also love it in color, but I choose Black and White instead.

Purple Nectar

Europe, Bergamo, Italy, 2016.

On a hot summer day in the Dolomiti, I shot this macro of a butterfly  flying to its flower to get nectar. Nice color focus and detailed image.
