Moving trees

Published 1 Nov 2023
The Betuwe area, the fruit barn situated between the big rivers such as Waal, Rhine and Meuse, has many country roads that are lined with trees. Partly there to break the wind, partly to indicate where the roads take a bend or end up at a T-crossing. This series was made using ICM and was previously published under the name 'Naked trees', which made it the most popular page of my website.

Plane trees at road through Guatiza and Teguise Lanzarote

Updated 31 Jan 2024
Barks of plane trees (platanus) at Guatiza and Villa de Teguise, Lanzarote. If you're sensitive to pareidolia, as I am, you might 'see' different 'things' in them.

Close-up of single tulip

Re-published 3 Jun 2023
In the COVID-19 spring and summer of 2020, we tried to stay at home as much as possible. The garden was my refuge, I followed two groups of tulips from beginning to end and captured them nearly every day.


Gulls

ICM

Gull at Tiel

Updated 24 Mar 2024
The sea gull is one of my favourite animals to capture, although their behaviour is erratic, unpredictable and sometimes rude. All of them have been shot in the ICM technique (disclaimer: animals have not been hurt or harmed in any way).

Quite willing to pose, as they were already dead. Cruel, I know. That's life. Sick joke. Sorry.

Updated 15 Jan 23-24
Talking about cute: it's impossible not to like them, these sandpipers or little stints as they seem to be called. Simply irresistable.
