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.

Getting to know "Groene Jonker" - photographing Dutch birds

Recently I discovered (pointed out to me by Leo Durghorn) a "newly" developed nature reserve near where I live. This used to be agricultural and farming area that has been "given back to nature" with the intent to serve as a retreat for (water)birds. 

So, curious as I was, I needed to explore this small area. I took the Fujifilm X-T2 and the Fujinon XF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR with me. This time with the 1.4TC attached. More about the teleconverter in a later post.

For a first time visit to this area I got some decent shots, but the real interesting aquatic birds where too far away.

Will be back here after summer, early mornings in the fall should be interesting. More here: De Groene Jonker.
