Olive trees, captured in Sicily and Mallorca, that look as if they have been designed for 'Lord of the Rings'.

No, I don't have a drone, although I'm on a saving up policy. These shots were taken from a plane or from a very high standpoint.

Deelerwoud colour slides

Updated 11 Nov 2023
Created on 2 Apr 1975 ... Correct. I used 400 ASA Ektachrome slide film with its characteristic colour and grain in two Canon AE1-bodies. So we are talking analogue photography here. In this private (yes, I had permission) and secluded part of the Veluwe in the Netherlands, Deelerwoud, there are hardly any paths. Just the tracks the animals create and use. My two hosts and then girl-friend kindly helped me carry my kit including the heavy tripod. The slides have faded unfortunately, which doesn't keep me from cherishing these pictures. They are the oldest in this website, and the occasion was unique and special.

Active mill at the Steendert near Est

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.

Sunset at Coast Calma

Sunsets and/or sunrises always have the danger of becoming cliche shots. I used different techniques and approaches in an attempt to avoid that.

Zeegser Duinen

Zeegser Duinen is a nature reserve in the north east of the Netherlands. I tend to go there once a year.

Extinct volca­noes


Volcanic crater Timanfaya National Parque

Published 1 Nov 2023
This relatively small area in the south west of Lanzarote belongs to the most impressive landscapes in the Canary Islands. Nearly 300 years ago, in a few weeks' time, the island was expanded by a third because of continuous eruptions of lava that swallowed compete villages on its way. The colours were created by chemical processes, and still, roughly 200 years after the last eruption, there's nothing that will grow here. NASA uses a secret spot to train their astronauts. The area is called Parque Nacional de Timanfaya and is now UNESCOheritage.

Barks of trees. If you are equally sensitive to pareidolia as I am, this is fun. At the end of this slideshow you will come across a couple of potentials.
