Garrus beach Ireland

This June, I visited Ireland again and in the late afternoon of the 20th I went to Garrus beach, just a couple of kilometers west of Tramore. Again a wonderful spot of the Copper coast which stretches from Tramore to Dungarvan. This geopark is still undiscovered territory for most of the tourists. After being chased by some bulls, I managed to get on top of the cliffs and witnessed a spectacular view. At first it was cloudy but just before the sun was setting, it peeked through the clouds creating beautiful light over the scene. I definitely will come back in winter time when the sun will rise over the sea (and the bulls are gone).

Hope you like the pictures. Select picture to enlarge !!

Coast of Zeeland

During my work in the provence of Zeeland, unfortunately the possibilities to explore with the camera where very limited.

Last Saturday I finally had to opportunity to make some pictures of the North sea waves, broken by the line of poles on the beach.

Please find below some images, the majority taken with a 6-step ND filter to emphasize the movement in the waves.

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.

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.

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.

Loowaard

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.
