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.

Sunrise at Marken

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.

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

Nature is everywhere, just go out!

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!

Better, Faster, Stronger in search of an ultimate, yet portable, bird photography setup

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.

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.

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".

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.
