When arriving at a small fen I had not yet visited before it became clear it wasn’t as good as I expected: no great leading lines or subjects I could use in my compositions. As the sky started coloring pink I quickly moved a bit more east to the north […]

A boring sunset on a new spot I found on the Strabrechtse Heide, need to go back there as this shoot wasn’t very successful. On the road – Route: Near the Beuven (Strabrechtse Heide) – Time: 1 Hour (16:30 – 17:30) – Total pictures: 45 – Comments: Boring sunset with […]

After the recon trip the week before this seemed to be a great day to return to the Kampina: fog and sun were forecasted for this cold winter day. The fog was there but the sun was not able to shine through a thick layer of low clouds. Oh well, […]

My first time at the Kampina and I have to say I quite liked it. This heathland is a bit different than the Strabrechtse Heide. It has some very nice fens and all are very near to each other. As this was just a quick recon trip I am looking […]

First shoot of the year and a pretty good one if I may say so. Not that the weather was according to the forecast but it was was nice nevertheless. On the road – Route: Around the Scheidingsven and Kiezelven (Braakhuizense Heide) – Time: 2.5 Hours (08:00 – 10:30) – […]

Luckily I did not forgot my tripod when going to the Starven for sunset this time and thus as was able to create some nice long exposures. The sky was full of nice pink colors but sadly the western skies were covered in airplane trails. As such I moved to […]

Note to self: always double check before leaving the house for a quick sunset photography shoot, even though it will cost a few more minutes! Not doing so resulted in me forgetting to take my tripod and thus I had to shoot handheld. Not something I really like, for some […]

After spending a good part of the day on the Maasvlakte we had to quickly jump in the car and race to our next destination: Het Zwin. Het Zwin is a tidal channel and looks a lot like a delta and is situated right on the border of Belgium and […]

Another roadtrip with Nando Harmsen and our first stop was the amazing Maasvlakte. This is a giant man made relatively new harbor complex next to Rotterdam on a place that used to be sea. On the south west side they created a new beach which works great for both sunrise […]

With the very nice sunset shoot at the Strabrechtse Heide (see report here) done we (Joep de Groot and I) decided to quickly move to the Herbertusbossen and hope for some left over fog in the forest. We were lucky the sun did not yet succeeded in removing the fog […]
