Oisterwijkse Vennen
Early in the morning on a Sunday in June I made some photos in the beautiful Oisterwijkse Vennen and Forest, together with the travel companions of the upcoming Iceland photo tour with Marcel van Balkom.

The 'Oversteek' is a bridge for car traffic over the Waal, located in Nijmegen. The river crossing was opened in November 2013 and is located to the west of two existing bridges in Nijmegen.

Spoorbrug Hoge Noten
'Spoorbrug Hoge Noten' is a new bridge over the railway between Arnhem and Nijmegen in Park Lingezegen (a new landscape park between Arnhem-Zuid and Elst). From April 24, 2020, hikers and cyclists will be able to bridge over the railway. The bridge is a real eye-catcher in the park. 
Photos made with the Fujifilm X-H1 and the XF 16-55mm @17mm, ISO 1000, f/8.0 and 1/8sec. I used Kase ND- and GND- filters to make a slow shutter speed possible to visualize the moving train

Finished Flowering
Two finished tulips exposed in three photographs. Combined in a triptych. I made the three photos with the help of a photo studio box. The middle photo is a double exposure to create a nice background.

Water Drops in a Review
Ultra Macro
I recently had the opportunity to REVIEW the new Laowa 65mm f/2.8 2x Ultra-Macro lens. A special lens because of the maximum magnification factor of 2:1. I 'attacked' a rose, a lily, a green leaf and a gerbera with a water spray. And tried to capture the water drops in detail

The Weir in Driel
The Weir in Driel, my hometown
In the major rivers, weirs are not only built to prevent desiccation of higher-lying areas, but also to guarantee minimal water levels for navigation throughout the year. Furthermore, weirs are constructed to steer water flows. The weirs that have been built in the Rijn and the Lek mainly serve to transport the water from the Rijn via the IJssel to the IJsselmeer.
This photo is a double exposure shot and converted to the Classic Chrome Film Simulation

The Willemsbrug in Rotterdam
The Willemsbrug, a bridge over the Nieuwe Maas in the center of Rotterdam. The bridge connects the right bank of the Nieuwe Maas with the Noordereiland. The current bridge is the second Willemsbrug. The first was designed by C.B. van der Tak, was opened in 1878 and named after King William III. The second and current bridge was designed by Cor Veerling and was delivered in 1981. 
Shot with the Fujifilm X-H1 and the ultra wide angle zoom Fujifilm XF 8-16mm @10mm, ISO 200, f/16 and 15sec

Fuji X-H1 in the middle of Silence and Nature
The year 2020 started well for me with the publication of my article in the Januari edition of the FUJI X PASSION Photography Magazine about my passion for landscape photography! 
I have given my contribution the title 'Fuji X-H1 in the middle of silence and nature' because that's what landscape photography does to me. When photographing landscapes or seascapes during the blue and golden hour I find myself completely relaxed by the silence of nature around me. A total of 15 of my latest landscape and seascape photos have been published in the article. I'm kind of proud ...
Here you see the first and last page of the 17 pages of my article

November 2019
Night photography in Deventer
Night photo of the beautiful old town of Deventer. Deventer is one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands and is located on the river IJssel. In the Middle Ages, Deventer was part of the 'Hanzeverbond', an important northern German trade network.
Photo is made with the Fujifilm X-H1 and the super wide zoom Fujifilm XF 8-16mm @16mm. Composed of seven different photos combined in Lightroom. With ISO 200 and f/11

September 2019
The Italian Ligurian SeaCoast
I spent a wonderful time at the Italian Ligurian Seacoast in September. This photo shows a long exposure seascape of the beautiful Livorno pebble beach near Antignano. By using a polarization filter, the colors become pretty intense and the water transparent. The super wide-angle lens creates a beautiful depth effect and makes a beautiful composition of the sea and the rocks with the clouds above.
Long exposure photo made with the Fujifilm X-H1, the super wide zoom XF 8-16mm @8mm and with the use of a polarizer, a big stopper and a gradual grey-filter

July 2019
National Photo Salon Invitation
I got an INVITATION by the Dutch Photobond to submit a coherent series of five photos for the annual National Photo Salon. Out of all 171 entries, a maximum of thirteen series will be selected for the salon. I have submitted these five photos. Unfortunately I was not one of the twelve chosen but I am proud that I was invited by the Dutch Photobond. Better luck next time!
The five seascapes were made in January of this year and taken from the Brouwersdam in Zeeland. The images almost evoke a meditative moment because of the beautiful surreal colors, the vastness and the emptiness. The chosen technique contributes to this: I made the images in the early morning with the beautiful morning light from a low point of view and using slow shutter speeds (8 to 15 seconds) and a ultra wide-angle lens (8 to 15 mm)

Long Exposure in Rotterdam 
Rotterdam Cityscape with the Erasmusbridge. 
Made with the Fuji X-H1 at 100sec, f/16 and ISO200 in combination with the XF 8-16mm ultra wide angle zoom @14mm. 
Also with the use of a big stopper, a gradual grey-filter and a polarizer

I got two Bronze Certificates from the Dutch Photobond
In February 2019 I got two BRONZE CERTIFICATES from the Dutch Photobond (Photo Online 2019) for these two photos. Both photos are long exposure photos and made with filters on my ultra wide angle zoomlens​​​​​​​
