After the solitude of the West Highlands, my next stop would be the Isle of Skye. It is a bit more difficult to avoid tourists here, but as I get up at 4 A.M. anyway, I did not expect any tourists for the first 5 hours of the day. I rented a car in Fort William and planned
I have had the unpleasant feeling for years now, that I regret doing the things in life that are sensible and rational, just to live up to the “expectations of society”, rather than to follow my heart. As much as I like working with my colleagues, and as much as I appreciate my company boosting my career
Edinburgh is, like mentioned in my previous blog, not a large city. So, if you are able to cover a few miles by foot, you could see the main attractions of the city within two days. As I stayed in Edinburgh for three days, I needed another activity. Because I wanted to see Puffins, a boat trip
As you might have noticed, it has been a while since my last post. Although I have taken some pictures the past months, which I will share later, I simply couldn’t find the time, nor energy, to post my work. Luckily, there came an end to my lack of motivation, as I visited Scotland and got re-energized!
This week I won’t be sharing any photos I worked hard on, and won’t share any good tips for you. This week I just share a few words from my diary. Last weekend I visited the Photo Fair, the largest photography event in the Benelux (Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg). I won some tickets in a photography contest by Saal Digital (which
Since I started with photography I became a tourist in my own country. My first project were the windmills at the Kinderdijk. From that point on I am looking for beautiful spots in my country to capture. Today, I’ll share some of these spots with you and advise you on the best time to visit.
Last Sunday (the 8th of May 2016) was the third and final day the Giro d’Italia crossed The Netherlands before heading to its home country. And while I captured most of the riders during the time trial in Apeldoorn, I did not had the change to capture the “peloton” in her glory. Luckily for me, we visited
I think that the Dutch are (in)famous for a few things, and cycling definitely is one of those things! Tourist visiting Amsterdam are complaining about those crazy locals rushing their bikes through dense traffic. Those idiots riding with great determination not to stop for anything. It won’t come as a surprise that the Dutch went crazy last year, when
Yep, it is that season again… During autumn every photographer hunts down the colours of fall. And during spring, guess what? We hunt down the colours of spring. So flowers it is! There is a forest in Belgium called “Hallerbos” (translated: “Halle Forest”). A forest I heard great stories about, but never actually been there. Every year, in April
Probably the number one reason travel to The Netherlands in April are the tulip fields. Depending on the weather and temperatures, the flowering season starts at the beginning of April. If the start of the spring season is warm this would be earlier, while a cold finish of the winter delays the blooming. It is
