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.
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.

Quite close to our house there are some old farm buildings with haystacks that have been beautifully restored. This is a freehand ICM image using a 4 second exposure at F/22.

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.

Near Vlijmen is a beautiful natural area, this is the Engelen lake with a simple pole and reed in the background. I also made a monochrome version that is even subtler.

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.

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.

Every year we have a family meeting in summer commemorating my mother, and the same tradition says a beautiful and colourful bunch of roses will be on our table.

Just before landing at Schiphol Airport, the plane crossed the Noordzeekanaal, flying over 'Westelijk Havengebied' Westpoort to land at the Zwanenburglaan. There were 24 passengers on board and I had a nice chat with one of the air hostesses.
