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

The summer is coming to an end, and so is the travelling season. But I love to travel! Seeing distant places, experiencing different cultures, and enjoying the good life with fine cuisine. Whenever I am visiting a foreign country, I look at old buildings and tell myself: “We have this at home too. I should visit some nice places in
Halfway through the month of August, I always start to monitor the heathland that is surrounding my city. This is the time that it will start blooming. And it is always a great sight, even more if you are able to find a wide open field. With August just behind us, you might have a last chance before the heather will
Those who were in Amsterdam in August 2015 might have noticed how the city was under the spell of tall ships. One of my mates likes boats, so he texted me “Want to take some photos at Amsterdam Sail?”. And just like that we met at the Amsterdam Central train station in the weekend of 23 August.
