I recently switched from Canon to become a Nikon user and I’m in de process of rebuilding my kit ;-). My latest investment is a macro lens and of course you have to experiment a little with new stuff:

water droplets

17 August 2010 Leave a comment

A little while ago a few of my colleague photo club members and I started a little project on photographing water droplets. We had been reading on it and had seen some examples. You don’t need a lot of kit or a difficult setup. And the good thing is: you can all do it during one night. Which is good when you try to find a free spot in the calendar of five people :-).

After practising a little and getting the light right the shooting could start! Here are my results:

Some more winter…

Although spring is finally there and temperatures are getting up again, I would like to post one more winter shot. It’s taken on Glacier 3000 near Gstaad in Switzerland. I was up there on a beautiful winter day that started with a bright blue sky. During the day however the weather started to change and dark, grey clouds moved in. The shot below is still a colour photo! Only minor adjustments are made in Lightroom.

I used this picture for the assignment on minimalism within our photo club. You can check the results of my fellow photographers here!

It’s finally winter in Europe! Snow is coming down in huge quantities and the Netherlands might actually have a white Christmas for the first time in 28 years. I’m looking forward to it! This weekend I’ve been testing a camera. I went to Konstanz in the South of Germany… planned to visit the Weihnachtsmarkt… but the temperature soon dropped below -10°C and the Weihnachtsmarkt was no fun… too cold! During the night temperatures in Germany dropped to -30°C. A new record. On our way back to the car we passed this little terrace…

Hi everyone! Recently our Photoclub went on a field trip. We took off to a shipyard in Grave (Netherlands) where we were able to walk around, take pictures. We were even aloud to go onto (or rather into) a ship under construction. It is going to be a cruise boat on the larger rivers in Europe. It was nice to see the process of building… the back was almost done with cabins and all. The front was still a large, empty steel room. I liked the details that could be found on this shipyard. Below some examples. We finished the day with a Djembé session (African drums, makes you fingers hurt!) and a BBQ. Great day and compliments to the committee for organising this!

Shipyard detail and another one...

Beautiful flowers on the Island of Mainau, near Konstanz in Germany. I visited this island in September, when the dahlias were in bloom. Hundreds of different kinds all in different colours. Really beautiful!

As you may have noticed, I will be continuing this blog in English. I have a few international readers and Dutch is a bit hard for them to read. Please feel free to leave me comment (either in Dutch, English or German)!
