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.

Bird Portrait Photography - A concept in the works

I have this idea, for a while now, it started with the photos on the desktop of the Microsoft surface line. Remember, the animals - owl photographed. To me it was as the birds where portrayed as a humans, a portrait almost. This intrigued me enormous and wanted to try this for myself. So I thought let’s try to capture birds in portraits like humans, i.e. bird portrait photography.

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.

Birding with the Fujifilm X-T3 and the Fujinon 100-400

After coming back from Vancouver and Vancouver island, photos will come later, I needed to test my few months old X-T3 against my former X-T2 for bird photography. So with a nice sun, wind and overall Dutch skies I went to the Groene Jonker and the Waver. See earlier blog posts on both areas here in the Netherlands.

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

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!

Lazy Sunday in Bentwoud - local nature area

So with all the latest blogs from France to Germany and back to Belgium I have this small blog. Nothing travel related or an exciting adventure, just a lazy Sunday hike in Bentwoud. Bentwoud is a new nature and recreational area right in the middle of the randstad. It has been transformed from farm land into this area in 2016. Since then 2,5 million trees and bushes are planted here which makes this quite a big area of around 800 hectares.

Germany mid autumn colours, visiting Burg Eltz & Hubertus Viaduct

Time to head off to photograph a favourite of mine or the one that is still way on top of the list to photograph. We left early, not that early because we knew, the conditions were not optimal. Saying I wanted a nice thick fog and sun to reveal the Burg, but we got treated to the warmest day in October ever I guess. Well, it didn’t spoil the fun we had.

The Cliffs of Étretat

This trip was the return gift from my father to me, as Ilse of Skye was for him. The cool thing is, Étretat is a very nice environment which you can reach by car in about 6 hours. So it is pretty accessible situated in Normandy France and a great place to do photography. It is also quite close to the D-Day beaches and it’s historical landmarks and the remains of war you will encounter.
