Sierra de Grazalema part 1

Please find below my first series of our holiday to the Sierra de Grazalema in Andalusia Spain. A stunning area with spectacular scenery, wildlife and white villages. We had an apartment in the village of Montejaque, a great starting point for walks and a fine location for something to drink and eat, after it.

Hope you enjoy these first series of pictures.

Deep purple

To make some pictures of the purple heather in combination with the rising sun, I went to the Posbank this morning. No morning fog where I was hoping for, but still a beautiful morning. Although not visible,  I was not the only one there this morning. From all over the country photographers came to witness this sunrise. The runner in the sixth picture asked me where the bus was parked.

Addition: ‘Clouds over the Posbank’ taken on the 24th of August

Addition: ‘After the purple rush’ taken on the 2nd of September

Addition: ‘The last morning’ taken on the 4th of September

Walking in the Ardennes

My son Marijn and myself went walking along the river Semois in the Ardennes. We had plans to explore the river by canoe but unfortunately the river was closed due low water. So we explored the area by foot and had a brilliant time. There were some hot days (>35 deg C), we couldn’t stop drinking water during the day (and Belgium beers at night). Obviously we got lost a couple of times ending up in breathtaking sceneries along the river, but we were anything but lost soles.

It was great time and it was brilliant to see that Marijn really got into photography as well. The apple doesn’t fall …………………….

We stayed in the little town of Laforêt where Theo and Hanneke looked after us very well in their B&B Le Lognard.

We ended our trip with a tour through the caves in Han.

Here some pictures of our adventures.

The flowers and the bees

Just outside my hometown, the borders of the cornfields are so colorful and full of life. You don’t have wait too long before a bumblebee or other insect is checking a poppy for some honey.

Hope you enjoy the pictures I took one sunny summer morning.

On one of the hottest days of the year, the only time to get out is the early morning. To witness the sunrise, the alarm was set for 04.00 in the morning. Together with Marion Keijzer, Sander Grefte and Wim Smallegange, I went to the Loowaard, an area next to the river Rhine where you can find wild horses. A beautiful area with fields and forests. Also a great opportunity to test my new Tamron AF SP 24-70 f/2.8 Di VC USD lens. The wide-angle pictures were made with the Tokina 11-18 lens, the rest with the Tamron and I’m very happy with the results.

Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Family photo shoot

My daughter Laura asked me to make some pictures for her blog ‘Het meisje met worteltjeshaar ’ (The girl with carrot hair). A splendid way to try my new (second hand) set of studio lights. Later, her brother Marijn joined in.

What a great way of spending a rainy Saturday afternoon.

CCC Studio Event

During the CCC Studio Event at Studio34 in Almere, I was invited, with almost 30 other  inspiring photographers, to explore a complete different and for me unknown discipline of photography: studio photography.

It was a great and inspiring day and thanks to everyone who was willing to share their knowledge.
