My portfolio

Welcome! 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).

Scroll down this page to see my latest posts or use the menu above to find the themes that appeal to you. I added comments on every image to offer some background. Any observation from your side: more than welcome.

Enjoy ☺ !

Rhode Island Red

Which appears to be the name of this hen. Beautiful creature, doesn't make any sound, a star in just sitting there and doin' nothing. This picture is featured in the Textures issue of AbstractAZZI and was published on my own website on 4 November 2020.

Sheer power

Fountains of spray, deafening sound when the winds are easterly and the waves are crashing on the rocky coast.

A hard life

There's a Platanus x hispanica near my favourite coffee bar. It's more than 30 years old and its roots have absolutely nowhere to go: it's asphalt, cobblestones, the expansion of the coffee bar that keeps the rain away from its roots. And it shows. Its bark is a painting.

Volcanic landscape

A grey sky subdued the colours of this image. The white arches look like a flock of sheep, but they're houses in the shape of the movement I made. Shutter speed 1/8 sec, F/45, 300 mm, ISO200, full frame, unfinished circular movement.

Stormy weather

This boat needs a capable pilot that leads it to quieter waters.

Boat in San Gines Lagoon at Arrecife

Volcanic colours

Especially when the sun is on and off, you get great contrasts in the volcanic colours. But today was cloudy and the shades get even more subtle. The ICM makes the village look like little sailboats.

Spring flowers

Lanzarote has seen a lot of rain in November and January, which is quite unusual. The upside is that the fields are covered with little yellow flowers.

Volcanic landscape (2)

Near Mala there's a ridge of volcans with colours that are even captivating in the rain. I shot this from the car with my side window open and got wet nevertheless.

Harbour

Moss covered steps and clear water. From here you're supposed to jump into the ocean.

Bougainvillae

It's been an absurd year and first I thought of using the reflection of a few days ago to close off the year, or a putting a cactus here and explain who's earned to get one. But I decided not to. Too much has already been said about 2020. Instead: a little colour from my favourite subtropical plant, a bit of brightness, and more than a shimmer of hope. Happy New year!
