Fire in the sky

Together with neighbor Fred, I went on Monday evening the 14th of February to the Posbank. A day before I spotted during a long walk a new location on the Posbank to make pictures of a sunset. How little did I know that the moment for this occasion was already the next day. The high clouds looked already very promising but when the sun disappeared nature presented us the most beautiful display of colors.

Find the series of that evening from the moment the sun disappeared till the final display of colors.

Snow for Valentine

After opening the curtains on Valentine’s day, I was very surprised to see the white world outside. It finally became winter.

In this blog the results of a early morning on the Posbank with a cloudy sky and a morning with a clear sky on the Rozendaalse veld, just a little bit further than the Posbank.

I hope you enjoy my first snow pictures of this year.

Durgerdam

On the 17th of Januari, I went together with some fellow photographers of the ‘Schoorl group’ to the little town of Durgerdam.

The town is situated just east of Amsterdam on the shore of the IJsselmeer, what used to be the Zuiderzee. Looking to the east, we witnessed a beautiful sunrise over the water.

Thanks Petra van Went, Ed Geerlings, Niels Barto and Frederik van der Veer for an inspiring morning.

and the regional newspaper Regiobode:

The picture is part of a series taken on the Posbank, which is part of this region. The series can be found in my blog Deep Purple. This particular picture got a lot of attention and positive comments on Facebook, was voted ‘Best picture of the week’ in the Facebook group ‘Most beautiful pictures of the Netherlands’. Also it was published by 1x.com, and finally the icing of the cake ,the picture was published over 2 pages in the British Photo magazine ‘Practical Photography ’ explaining how to introduce details in landscape photography.

All the attention for this picture has taken me completely by surprise. I just wanted to take a picture of the Posbank that differs from the rest and I think I can say that I succeeded in that.

Thank you all for your support.

Autumn 2015 part 1

The most colourful season is getting to its end. Time to wrap-up some of my results and post it in my blog.

What a great autumn it was. We were treated to great weather, hence the beautiful colours were even more bright. Obviously the nights were getting colder resulting in some morning fog, the best ingredients for a landscape photographer.

The pictures were taken in the woods around our home town Dieren, Posbank, Velp and the ‘dancing trees’ in the Speulder forest.

Alhambra

The last series of our stay in Andalusia is taken during our visit to Alhambra in the city of Granada. Because we were in the first time slot of the day to visit the Nazaries palace at 08.30, we had to leave our apartment at 05.00. But was totally worth it. What an impressive place to be. The Moorish art is beautiful, the attention to detail is amazing. Obviously no surprise it is a Unesco world heritage site.

You can find more information about this fortress here.

Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Sierra de Grazalema part 2

In this second series of the Sierra Grazalema, again you will find some pictures of the stunning landscapes, villages and vultures.

Fortunately the sunrise was only at 08.30 so I didn’t have to get up very early. After checking the sunrise I went to the bakery for some nice bread for the breakfast. What a way to start the day.

Looking up, there were always vultures in the air, a great sight. How graceful and effortless these big birds fly. Flocks of sheep or goats were always accompanied by circling vultures above them.
