Ever since I was little I have been fascinated with planes, flight and especially aerial photography. So when the first satellite photos where available in Google earth it sparked my interest. This was further fueled when I took a hot air balloon ride some years ago. Together with my camera I had a real change of doing my own aerial photography. This for me was a completely different approach to landscape photography that I had ever done before. However this type of photography I could not combine with my love of hiking through nature as you obviously needed a hot air balloon in your backpack. Which is, well, quite impossible.Read More
Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. In this case we lost. The last time when I was at the Zeelandbrug I was treated with a gorgeous sky and sunset, see here. However this time we were out of luck. We got up early and got into the car towards Zeeland. Marc Duiker, Marnix Vermaas and myself where pretty enthusiastic as the weather could go both ways. When we were on the highway it started to clear up.Read More
This new year's holiday we decided to go out Germany, staying in the Moesel area right in the middle between Luxembourg city and Frankfurt, around Trier. A perfect place for going out to Saarland and walk around and next to the Moesel.Read More
The Zeeland Bridge was built between 1963 and 1965. At the time of its completion, it was the longest bridge of Europe. It has a total length of 5,022 metres, and consists of 48 spans of 95 metres, 2 spans of 72.5 metres and a movable bridge with a width of 40 metres.
The province of Zeeland borrowed the money for the construction of the bridge. The loan was repaid by levying tolls for the first 24 years.
This building is really suited for a nice Classic Chrome sunny golden glow, however, no sunshine to be seen this day! The grey dark weather did give a nice blue grey cast. Hate it or love it, somewhere it really intrigues me! Photos taken with the X-T2 and 18-55F2.8-4.Read More
This relatively new nature reserve is restored to it’s natural state to where it was, a flower rich wetland, almost sixty years ago. The restoration was done in the last couple of years where ditches were cut off and water was redirected. This meant that an agricultural land was transformed from grasslands to a more wetlands type of soil. Resulting in some exotic plants, flower and more birds in the area.Read More
Oke, I'm a sucker for Classic Chrome. So I re-edit the some of the Berlin photos and the Berlin Tempelhof to a more abstract series. It's a serie of three, so this time a short one and a short blog. There is a reason for that.Read More
