Sinds ik begonnen ben op het pad van contemplatieve of meditatieve fotografie is mijn interesse in de natuur enorm toegenomen. Op mijn wandelingen in parken en hortussen kom ik eigenlijk nooit zonder vastgelegde waarnemingen thuis. Helaas ben ik slecht op de hoogte van namen van planten en bomen, dus ik beschrijf ze vaak door middel van kleur, vorm of textuur.

Since I started walking the path of contemplative or meditative photography my interest in nature has increased enormously. During walks in parcs and botanical gardens I hardly ever return without captured perceptions. Unfortunately, I am ill educated about the names of plants and trees so I describe them usually by ways of colour, form or texture.

Photowalk: ‘The Slufter’, Texel

Photoshoot: beach walk

I have decided that writing a blog regularly is no longer feasible for me as it takes up a lot of time to write a good post. However, I would like to share my photos […]

Photowalk: A walk on the beach

Als je me een tijdje volgt dan weet je dat ik van het strand hou. Dat zal ongetwijfeld met mijn opvoeding te maken hebben (mijn vader komt van Scheveningen, mijn moeder van Katwijk en als […]

Prunus blossoms

Er staan vier prunussen vlak voor ons huis in Amsterdam en ieder voorjaar bloeien die weer prachtig. Er staan er trouwens meer in de buurt en als de bloei op hun hoogst is, loop ik […]
