Ireland December 2013 Part 1

My first upload this year, so I would like to wish everyone a very happy and healthy 2014,

Thanks for your interest last year and I hope to see you regularly on this site in the new year.

Fortunately I was able to make some trips during our stay in Waterford Ireland, last Christmas. The weather was far from dull, great skies, storms and magical sunrises and sunsets.

Big thanks to Owen O’Grady for your advice and delicious pint on one of those trips.

Due to the amount of pictures, I will upload the pictures in different stages. This is part 1.

Enjoy.

Gieseplas

Next to the little town Giesbeek is the Gieseplas situated. This little lake is connected to the river IJssel.

I went there a couple of times to experiment with composition and long exposure.

Hope you like it.

My last post this year. Have a great Christmas and for you and your family a prosperous new year.

This year I sent 7 pictures to the ‘Amateur Photographer of year’ contest of the Irish Times. Out of more than 10.000 pictures, 2 pictures out of those 7 were shortlisted.

On top of that, the picture ‘Forest light’ got also a honourable mention in the Nature category.

Obviously I am fully delighted for this recognition.

The pictures that made it to the shortlist were:

Much love and thanks for my girlfriend Jacqui for her support and who persuaded me to send in some pictures.

 

Autumn scenes

Pictures taken this autumn, that means nature is changing it’s colours, mushrooms are appearing and the weather is changing resulting in fog and dramatic rain clouds.

Hatertse vennen

I’m delighted to be part of a group of photographers called ‘Schoorl groep’. You can find us also on Facebook.

This morning we went to de Hatertse vennen, nearby the city of Nijmegen. It is a moor-like area with heather and fens.

It was a stunning morning, fog was covering the area, but that was soon gone after a beautiful sunrise.

Obviously I took a lot of pictures but I hope the selection below will give you a good idea how it was.
