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.
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.
Yesterday, Friday the 13th, I went to the Posbank. Unlike the most of the Netherlands, it has some hills, covered with purple heather. This morning I was treated with a stunning sunrise while a fog was coming in. For some maybe haunting, not for me. It was just amazing.
In this blog just a selection of all the pictures I took.
Thanks for watching.
Today together with Frederik van der Veer, Ed Geerlings and Fred Uittenbogaard to the Ijssel nearby Wilp to watch the sunrise.
Thanks guys for a great morning and special thanks to Ed for saving my camera.
