talking in photographs part 1

my passion for photography started with nature.
the more i explored the landscape around me, the more i became aware of the beauty of its colors, lines and shapes.
the deeper my perception of that beauty in its myriad details, the stronger my desire to 'capture' it and show it to the world
i started shooting the landscape behind my house with my iPhone in december 2010 and haven't stopped since.
with my images, shared through my first photoblog, i am telling the landscape's story, recording the changes from day to day, from year to year.

here are some examples of the images that are closest to my heart.

flowers in the most beautiful colors and shapes, attracting butterflies and bees

our dutch national icon, the mill, a true landmark in our polder

all the animals on the land and in the water, the landscape's main inhabitants...

the constantly shifting colors of the lake and the majestic lowland skies

the countless shades of green, translucent with sunlight or moist with raindrops

and last but not least: the people enjoying and savoring the landscape, be it on foot, by bike or from the water.

  1. Beautiful! I can see your love of nature in these images. I especially love the view of the windmill through the grasses - excellent creative take on an icon. I look forward to seeing what comes next as you reveal the layers of your eye!

  2. Wonderful series! I really like that you include people in some of them enjoying the beauty around them. Keep it up!
