Scroll down this page to see new images in chronological order or use the menu above to find the themes that appeal to you. At the bottom you can see my latest Instagram posts (you won't need an account).

I added comments on every image to offer some background. Any observation from your side: more than welcome ☺. Enjoy!

Three activities that have played an important part in my life have come together in this website: photography, web design and my love for English (I'm not trying to be perky here, I chose to translate my website into English as most of my visitors are non-Dutch speaking).

Photography is what makes me tick. I noticed that my work is getting more and more abstract. Inspired by having visited more museums in the past five years than in my entire life? Most certainly. Changed because I am getting older? Definitely.

With techniques such as ICM and blur aided by post-processing I try to make images that are different and grab the attention. If they don't, I am truly sorry. But there's also plenty of tradional photography. Don't worry.

The Well

In some parts of the Betuwe, the level of ground water is so high natural wells will occur.

Jetty

From the boulevard I could look down on the well-worn concrete path from where the small fishing boats are pushed into the water.

Sand pattern

This is Playa La Garita, my favourite beach at Lanzarote when it comes to photogenic qualities: it's got waves, sand, rocks and free graphics after rainfall.

The Rose

One of my favourite flowers. This is a blend of a sharp picture and one that has been blurred by using ICM. Just to celebrate King's Day.

Bouquet of Gloriosa

This vase with Gloriosa rothschildiana makes a quite exquisite bouquet. It is a multiple exposure with 10 images while the vase was being rotated.

Romantic scene

In Oss we came across the Geffense Plas, a recreational area that offers some traditional scenes.

Trees against the sky

It's a slow spring and it will take a few more weeks before these willows will carry leaves. 1 sec @ F/19.

Branches of willows

Dyke along the river Waal

This is the rapeseed period and that's lovely. Just a tree in a bend along the dyke, I increased the abstract factor adjusting some sliders to make it impressionist.

Willows about to bear leaves

I don't know enough about willows, but I have never seen branches this yellow before. They made me park on the grass and I tried to catch them.

Kiss from a Rose

It's this song by Seal that keeps returning to my mind when I look at this image which was a single ICM shot in-camera taking 2 seconds @ F/22.

Mariënwaerdt

Lovely driveway lined with old trees in this area of noble ancestry that goes back to 1734. Heerlijkheid Mariënwaerdt is a family estate of over 900 hectares. I created an ICM effect of the driveway by making a V-shaped 4 second movement.

Prunus is blossoming

One of our neighbours has a Prunus in his front garden that is really spectacular. Starts off in white and then changes to pink. It's an insect magnet.

Narcissus

What its character stands for is exactly what we don't need these days, but ... we picked these in our garden just to show: don't worry, spring is coming.
