Despite the fact that it is midwinter in the Netherlands, it was 13 degrees Celsius with a warm sun in the province of Zeeland.Everything was covered with a green layer of moss and many of the blackberry bushes had been mowed away by “Natuurmonumenten” with large heavy machines.Way too much nitrogen… Purslane grows very wellContinue reading “A winter walk on the island of Neeltje Jans”

Headwindcycling, the Dutch Championships 2022
It was pouring rain when I arrived this morning. Within half an hour I was cold and wet to my skin, despite the (not waterproof) rain gear. I’ll show you the photos that I took anyway. Fortunately, my photo equipment withstood the rain well, thanks to the good protection that has been carried along inContinue reading “Headwindcycling, the Dutch Championships 2022”
Dutch Championships Headwindcycling 2022
Tomorrow will be the 2022-edition of the Dutch Championships Headwindcycling! The last edition was in December 2018, which seems a long time ago … I’ll be there … with my camera! A couple of photos I made in 2018, as a reminder … The weather forecast is bad for photographers … lots of rain!
One of my cameras is broken. The Canon 70D kept getting an “error 80” message. Fortunately, it is a known and recognized issue at Canon and is currently being fixed at TechRepair. So, for now, I have to make use of my other cameras … I hope repair won’t take too long as I’m already missing the camera body…
December 31, 2020 made a last walk under the Zeeland sky … Let’s hope that we as humans will get more real attention for nature and each other and give each other the opportunity to act accordingly. The little pinprick that the natural environment has given us with COVID-19 is a good way to makeContinue reading “Happy 2021”

a short velomobile ride
I went cycling for a few hours … And when I got home there was still no president of the United States of America. The current one is telling so many lies on television that I no longer dare to call him president. For me, the worst part is that apparently half of the USAContinue reading “a short velomobile ride”
I was lucky today
Today I haphazardly started cycling in my velomobile. According to the weather forecast, it would not rain until 5:00 pm, but my entire ride the dark clouds threatened to release their many water sooner. Incredibly nice weather for taking pictures, but due to the fact that I had left my hood at home and cycled “convertible”, I wasContinue reading “I was lucky today”
walking the dog on Sunday
Today was the day that Marjan turned 65 …
Walking the dog, Corona-proof.
Today I was as good as the only one who walked his dog on the former work island Neeltje Jans.
Fortunately today it was dry once, at least without rain. So I was able to walk my Sandwalk for a while, together with Marjan and the dog.
hot and hazy on the Oosterschelde
walking the dog
always beautiful, just walking the dog on the island of Neeltje Jans with this kind of music in your head …
A sunny Sunday with Quest 552
It was busy on the bike path, but not too busy … and I was in no rush 😉Too bad that the electrically assisted bicycles hit the majority …
