River IJssel

Due to the drought this summer, the water level has fallen to a point that it is impossible for fully loaded ships to navigate on it. Personally I never saw it that low.

IJsselfeest Dieren

In my hometown of Dieren, every year the IJsselfeest is organised. It is a two-evening event, where local DJ’s are invited to keep the crowd busy on the first night and live music on the second night.  It is situated along the river IJssel, hence the name of the event.

For this year’s IJsselfeest, I was asked to make some pictures to capture the atmosphere. I made a lot of portraits of happy people enjoying themselves. I didn’t have to ask, they were just chasing me to get their portrait taken. All portrait pictures you can find in the two albums on the Facebook page of the IJsselfeest.

In this blog I would like to share some of the pictures where I tried to catch the atmosphere of the crowd and the band STOOT!. Concert photography is a real challenge I find due the constant changing light conditions, get good sharp pictures and keeping the noise down.

It was a really good experience, specially doing the band pictures.

Oisterwijkse vennen

Just south of Oisterwijk, a town in the provence of Brabant, you can find a stunning nature park. Lot’s of little lakes (vennen) situated in forests and moors. A perfect place to cycle or go for a walk.

Jacqui and myself stayed in a hotel in the middle of Oisterwijk, a perfect spot to head of for something eat or drink in one of the many restaurants or bars in town or go for a walk into the forests and moors.

Below are some pictures of the area. The weather was stunning, in fact a bit too beautiful for me. I was hoping for some clouds and fog, but yeah, it is never right. During the early morning the treetops where lit by the rising sun, generating a mix of the lush green and the orange. For a couple of minutes it was autumn in spring.

Copper coast dec 2017

Irish Copper coast December 2017

 

As with every Christmas, we were at home in Waterford Ireland. It is a great time of the year to spend some quality time with family and friends.

Also for photography it is a great time. You don’t have to wake up that early to see the sun rising and because the sun will stay rather low, light conditions are pretty good.

When I’m in Waterford I always try to meet with my friend Owen O’Grady, this year was no exeption. We met at Kilfarresy Beach. Owen has complete different approach regarding photography, where I go normally for some drama, Owen will go for minimal. Check his website: http://www.owenogrady.com for his collection of fine art.

Here are some pictures taken on Kilfarrasy that day.
