The former island of Marken situated in the Gouwzee was connect to the main land in 1957 by a dyke. This means that visiting the island is obviously much easier now. Marken is famous for its monumental wooden houses, fishing heretic and the traditional costumes the residents wear.Read More
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 100-400mmRead More
I wanted to share this post as I was just cycling around my home town through the meadows and saw plenty of birds that arrived for the summer here. As wel as many hares and obviously the famous dutch cows and farm land.
As you can see nature is everywhere, especially in spring, just go out and explore. Maybe not all is as exciting as being out in the wilderness, but even here in the urban western part of the Netherlands, you will find interesting animals, compositions and therefor photos!Read More
Recently I have been photographing small birds more and more and wanted more reach without resorting to the tele converter. So, I thought a bigger and better lens will solve my problem. There are many options, but in the end, there were only three options for me to test. As I had the opportunity to shoot with a Nikon D500, I could go with the Nikon 200-500F5.6, the Sigma 150-600 C or the Tamron 150-600 G2 which was recently released.Read More
Last Monday evening it was nice summer evening with exceptional yellow light, probably due to the humid air. So I could not resist to get my gear out in search of the Purple Heron. I have spotted at least one here (while other people have spotted several).Read More
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".Read More
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.Read More
