Shooting stars!

De afgelopen nacht ben ik met astro-fotograaf Rutger Bus op pad geweest naar het Aekingerzand om de Perseïden sterrenregen te fotograferen. Alhoewel het hoogtepunt van de sterrenregen van de meteorenzwerm van de Perseïden de komende twee nachten is, zijn wij er toch op uit gegaan aangezien er weinig bewolking voorspeld werd. Ik had het geluk om een vallende ster die de...

Gasterse Duinen

  Ik heb na lange tijd weer eens de Gasterse Duinen bezocht. De Drentsche Aa trok mij altijd meer en was voor mij de meest logische locatie om te fotograferen. Ik liet daarom vaak de Gasterse Duinen links liggen. Nu ik hier weer ben geweest kom ik erachter dat dit een grote fout is geweest. Wat een prachtig fotogeniek gebied is dit. Je kunt er heerlijke landschappen...

My first award winning photo

This morning I was browsing through my photo archive and this picture attracted my attention. It has a nice story which I want to share with you. This is a picture from 2003. It was the first year I had a “real” DSLR. My gear at that time was a Canon 10D with a 75-300mm USM lens. A great camera together with not the best lens, but good for me at that time....

Zwarte Haan

Yesterday evening I went out for another photo-trip. I wanted to go to a spot at the IJsselmeer. I didn’t exactly know which spot, but I would let the light lead my way. On my way to the IJsselmeer I saw the clouds move from the south to the north. I assumed at sunset the clouds would be gone at the IJsselmeer. In the north I saw beautiful high clouds in the sky,...
