I cannot emphasise enough, the spectacular scenery during this sunset. The sun was at its lowest point, giving the golden color like its suppose to. For a long time I have been searching for a landscape, scenery, that feels as if you go back in time. I believe, this scenery, captures that feeling perfectly. The clouds look like they come from an old painting fro 1 of our masters hundreds of years ago. They knew how to capture the light, that is the most important part of a painting. I believe, I came a close to that here in this 1, with nothing else but natural light.
A very rage sight, illuminated windmills in the Netherland.
I shot this image, whilst clouds where covering the skies and stars where hard to see. Still, it is a very rare and interesting image, having a look at the history of our windmills in the Rotterdam region.
If you can show patient, you shall be rewarded. I Went to this windmill several times, but with this sunset, it most definitely was worth the waiting.
The mill is very well preserved, there is pond in front of it, connecting it to a small stream.
Love the darkish scenery on an oktober evening.
This windmill, called Wissink Möl, is situated just 5 minutes from my home town. The mill is still in use and on many occasions you can still check out the way they used it, in the 19th century.
There is always a lot of wind on that spot, I guess they knew where to put it and make to most out of it.
Many pictures have been made from this ICONIC dutch place. But worth the visit and definitely, I think I found a new angle and scenery to this picture perfect spot. When the clouds where moving and shaping into an epic dutch scene, I knew, with the still water, I could get incredible mirroring of the whole image. If you like this kind of work, please stay tuned and follow me, cause I have a lot of this kind a material coming soon!!
The Wissinks Möl is located in the municipality of Enschede near Usselo, along the road to Haaksbergen. The mill is of the type (open) standerdmolen, locally known as a stenderkast.
Does it get any more Dutch then this?!
Well, put some tulips, cheese and wooden shoes, and it would be the most iconic picture of the Netherlands you will be able to find. Anyways, I love this picture.
The bridge is open so nobody can cross the small canals. The windmills are countless and the sunset and weather conditions perfect.
I will come back to this place this spring/ summer for more amazing shots.
Het Paard van Marken.
On 1 of the islands, that we created our selfs, you can find this lighthouse, warning boats that there is land.
It’s an amazing spot, that really gives you a sense of freedom, overlooking holland and the Ijsselmeer.
This day was quite windy and the weather conditions changed all the time, making it possible to be creating this shot, on bright daylight.
House of Cheese. Made at the world famous and tourist trap: De Zaanse Schans in Zaanstad, The Netherlands.
A nice cold day in Holland, without wind, made for the perfect reflection on the small water pools, surrounding the houses.
The house on the right is an old cheese house. On the left you can find many windmills. An iconic place.
Mills at the Zaan, lined up next to the water.
A picture perfect scenery of holland. Mills, water, wind and the clouds.
Although the water was not flat due to a bit of wind, I still think this is a good shot from the mills in Zaanstad.
When the sun goes down, a great color pallet can be found during the blue-hour after sunset.
In this work you will see:
2. Illuminated windmill’s
3. A powerful color pallet during sunset
Shot during the Illuminationweek at Kinderdijk.
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.
A very special moment. Once a year the worldfamous windmills at the Kinderdijk in The Netherlands, will be illuminated for 1 week. During that week, you have to be lucky with the weather.
I was, and it gave met the opportunity to shoot some great work.
Holland has a great variety of mills. Some are very pretty and nostalgic. I believe the Pelmolen in Rijssen is one of those mills that illustrated our Dutch landscape perfectly and makes it for a typical dutch scenery.
The stream, the autumn colors and the sunrise are just idyllic
This is the Kings Square in Enschede, my hometown. The hospital that has been build on the left has costs 220milion euro.. the most expensive building in our area. The art that has been places in front of the building, connecting the city center to the hospital is pretty nice.
At a very beautiful sunset, the autumn started to come. The water is filled with leaves from surrounding trees. That did not stop the water from mirroring the mill and making this sunset special.
The mill has got some nice lights so it standout better and can be seen during the bluehour.
I am from holland. And I feel lucky. All places have something special. But we have got mills, wooden shoes, tulips and of course cheese. Come visit our small country and check out these EPIC mills!!
I have not yet seen this bridge down, during my visits to Kinderdijk.
Maybe the close it because of the people going to stand on it during the night, I don’t know.
After my perfect sunset, as can be seen in my other work, the clouds came rolling in this evening, and you wil find a different kind of nightscaping in this image.
I like the composition and Illuminated mills in this image.
During late bluehour, shot the biggest building in my hometown Enschede.
From my hometown Enschede: The Cityhall at night.
Great windows that let through the blue/purple light that are left on during the night.
Across from the Zaanseschans, there is the city of Zaandam, Zaanstad. Oh, and the river is called the Zaan..
Great City Hall shot from the klokkenplas in Enschede.
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.
Windmill Magic from The Netherlands!!
Another great moody picture! on the right the sunset was at its last breath, before making room for a thunderstorm from the left to come rolling in!! ⠀
What a great spot, when conditions are perfect!!
just seconds before the rain started to fall, I shot this moody picture of the Pelmolen.
The sky is lit-up by the sunset in the back
Waste NO space
A beautiful old Idilic spot in the east of the netherlands.
These belong to an old estate cold Singraven. What you see is a watermill.
A great sunset sky with in the front camomile flowers
A great sunset during this nights at the Illumination week at the Kinderdijk.
This mill is not seen by many tourists and people visiting the show. But if you search a bit more you will be able to find great reflections and different spots that give you a great scenery too.
If you look very closely, you will see what my focus is in this image.
