Foggy Rivers
On a foggy morning in December I took these photos in the vicinity of the ferry 'Lexkesveer' in Wageningen and the 'Looveer' in Huissen.
I made the three photos with the Fujifilm X-H1, the super wide zoom XF 8-16mm @10mm and the standard zoom XF 16-55mm @55mm. All photos with ISO 200 and f/11. I used long exposure (the selfie @12 sec and the other two @100 sec).
I also used Kase-filters (ND, GND, and CPL) for the nice colors, exposure and sphere

The Italian Ligurian SeaCoast

I spent a wonderful time at the Italian Ligurian Seacoast in September. The photos show long exposure seascapes 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 photos 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.

The beautiful Biesbosch Area

Spent a wonderful weekend on a camping in the Biesbosch Area. Photos made with the XF 8-16mm and the XF 55-200mm. The sunset-photo made with Kase-filters and long exposure of 30sec.
The Biesbosch National Park is a very wetland nature and recreation area in the Netherlands with freshwater tides, creeks and willow flood forests. It consists of a number of river islands and sand and mud flats in the provinces of Noord-Brabant and Zuid-Holland

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)
