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.

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. Once on the highway it started to clear up. 

 

Once arrived at the Zeelandburg, the weather in Zealand was totally different. It was clouded, with some drizzle and most of all fuzzy - misty conditions. That meant, no drone shots, no sunrise shots but definitely some experimentation with long exposures, that was the only thing that could really work.

In the end it was not the most beautiful morning nor was it especially easy to photograph in this specific case. We had fun though being out with the three of us. This is definitely something to come back to and do again with the three of us. Maybe next time we are in luck or just try a completely different location all together.

At the end of the day the skies opened up a bit, letting some sunshine through, but it was enough to really save the day. More so, it got way colder at the end of the day. Time to go home! 

These shot ware all taken with the Fujifilm X-T2 and the Fujinon 10-24mm plus the Haida ND1000 filter, together with my trusty Mefoto tripod and my Lowepro Flipside Sport. Here are the photos that made the cut, barely.
