Sharing my stories, passion and knowledge, but even more so, my experiences with photography in my blog section is something I needed to do. It is not easy, but love -not expected- to write more and share my experiences.

Landscape photography and drones, my experience

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.

Early morning in Zeeland - it wasn't nice!

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.

Park Eifel and the Urft Dam (with video)

Long on the list and after some research we (with Marc Duiker) drove to Park Eifel. A nature reserver situated near the south east of The Netherlands. It is a long drive, but we figured it is worth it as there are hiking trails, forests and the Urft Dam.

Zeelandbrug, cold, windy, sunset and sun rays!

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.

Visiting the Empese and Tondense Heide (with video)

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.

Paris Revisited in Chrome

Since my previous post, Evenings in the Ardèche, I have been going through some previous shot Fujifilm photos. As my post processing and workflow are now adjusted to Fujifilm files together with much better Lightroom support, I'm rediscovering photos that I discarded earlier.
