Spring flowers
A spring bellflower, a purple lapwing flower, the less common white lapwing flower and the 'rare blue lapwing flower'! 
Normally the lapwing flower has purple checkered petals. The white petals may be the result of a mutation: an error in the plant's genes. The blue lapwing flower is my own creation... it does not exist!
The spring bellflower is a bulbous plant from the daffodil family. The tepals have a green spot.

A Tree in the Oisterwijk Forest
Early in the morning on a Sunday in June I made some photos in the beautiful Oisterwijkse Vennen and Forest. Enjoyed the silence and the environment. Here a photo of a nice tree. Made with the super wide-angle zoom 8-16mm



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 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

Nature in Hoekelum Estate in Ede
Hoekelum is a castle and estate between Ede and Bennekom, in the Dutch province of Gelderland. The area of the estate owned by Gelders Landscape is 112 hectares. A park has been created around the mansion in the style of, among others, Johan David Zocher. A stream has been created through the park with winding paths and straight forest lanes.
I found these autumn scenes in the verge of these paths
