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.

Leuvenumse bos - Forest hike with the X-T3 and 50-140

I’ve been looking into different hiking trails in the forest area the Veluwe this time around, to capture wildlife and nature. A more forest type of photography. This was the first outing with the Fujinon 50-140F2.8 and the photos weren’t the primary goal, just a nice walk and getting to know the 50-140 and how it behaves.

Snow and the hunt for foxes - Waterleidingduinen

Here we are again, winter and it’s snowing. The whole country is in chaos, traffic jams up to 2300km in total last evening. However I can only think of one thing! Get out and shoot the next day, in search of foxes in the snow. So let’s go to the dunes, again. Nature here I come. Prepared and all. A light kit only bringing the new Fujifilm X-T3 and the fujinon’s 16-55mm with the 100-400mm

Full autumn colours in the forest - Speulderbos

This year I was ready, mid autumn with full colours of the forest trees and leaves, because every year I seem to just miss the ideal few days where the colour is at its best. This year (2018) we had a particularly warm autumn, meaning that the trees kept their leaves much longer, so I was especially lucky. However it was also very wet! No excuses and just go!

Could not resist, back to "Groene Jonker" at sunset

I could not resist the next day after my previous visit, see previous post, to go back to the "Groene Jonker" with sunny weather at sunset. Although the bird activity was low, I still managed to get some cool "yellow sunset" shots.

My second time at "Groene Jonker", grey weather but rewarding

The last time I visited "Groene Jonker" it was sunny and quite warm weather. This time around it was grey, windy and not so warm. In the end there was still enough to see and photograph. Especially the numerous aquatic birds that were present. With my favourite of the day being the "Eurasian spoonbill" and the "Ruff".

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 is now "given back to nature" with the intent to serve as a retreat for (water)birds.

The little fox that could!

When on my birding outing, see previous post, I stumbled upon a young fox in the Oostvaardersplassen. This little fox was just relaxing and enjoying the sun, even falling a sleep as I walked away. But as foxes are, they still keep a keen eye on you. I just love foxes! See also more here: http://www.robertdoeleman.com/nature/

My first real effort in photographing Dutch birds

Ever since I had a serious telephoto lens I wanted to try bird photography. This is now a couple of years, but I really never got into it, or at least tried it. Now having more experience with shooting with long telephoto lenses and more comfortable with the new Fujifilm setup it is time to have a go.
