Abstracts

In this website you'll come across ICM and blur. Whereas they're both specialised abstracting techniques, this page aims to collect shots straight from the camera without any serious post-processing. Still I hope they make you wonder: OK, but what is it? So, I will faithfully add explanations if necessary.

Timanfaya National Park

A difficult image to categorise, because it consists of four different layers that I joined and added blur path to, in order to make it 'one'. Never mind, it's about the image itself, and to me it radiates warmth, just like the volcanoes over here.

Sad

It's one of the many sad things that happened in 2020, so sad that I didn't want to start my homepage with this image. Apart from all the harm that has been done to people's health, relations, traditions and celebrations, many shops and businesses went bankrupt. This is a shopwindow that has been whitewashed. Apparently, the dog (or is it a cow?) doesn't mind.

Rock man

There's a small grove nearby my holiday rental home where local stonemasons used to get their material from to build houses. I see a man with a cap on and a cigarette dangling form his mouth.

Autumn in Utrecht

Easy one: autumn leaves in one of the canals in Utrecht, just opposite 'Tante Sien' for those who know the place.

The Voorlinden Museum in Wassenaar is one of our favourites. It's a privately funded museum and that in itself makes it special. Collections are changed a few times per year and the artists are renowned.

La Palma

That La Palma is a volcanic island is something you cannot escape from, wherever you are on the island. Here the coast leaned back a bit so from a steps down to the ocean near Puntagorda I could look back and take this pic. An enormous eruption causing a quarter of the land slide into the sea also accounted for a chemical process, hence the 'unnatural' colours.
