It has not frozen much in Zeeland this winter. The little nature that is left is claimed by “natuurmonumenten” and treated and maintained as a garden with native plants. The rivers are heavily polluted with polycyclic hydrocarbons, poly- and perfluoroalkyls and other pollution. It doesn’t matter for landscape photography, because it’s pollution that isn’t visibleContinue reading “Zeeland nature in January”
Today I took a leisurely ride with Quest 552. Unfortunately, I was hit by a car on the way … no wounds to my body but unfortunately a few tears in my beloved velomobile. I am happy that I was well protected by my fairing, but I am disappointed that some of the carbon-fairing was damaged. I will takeContinue reading “a cosy ride”
I am terribly annoyed by all the commotion surrounding the US presidential elections, corona measures, saving the neoliberal economy, exploiting the environment and many other things that are all important. Today, the clouds invited me to take a ride in my Quest. So I put on my in-ear speakers, put on some quiet blues music,Continue reading “the beautiful clouds called for a ride”
Today I was briefly in my Quest 552 to let my leg muscles “talk” … They told me that I cycle far too little. I replied that I am now 64 years old and no longer have to win races … I want to relax a bit more while cycling. They understood. While taking photos,Continue reading “a short ride to see if I still feel my muscles”
Yesterday I had a nice ride in my velomobile. It was not about speed, but about looking at the Zeeland landscape with the eyes of an “actual” photographer. Many horizontal lines in which vertical lines immediately attract attention.The so-called “fertile soil” in Zeeland needs a lot of “fertilizer” and despite the many salty water thatContinue reading “Zeeland”
In its simplicity, nature is BEAUTIFUL. Maarten van Roozendaal sang about it a long time ago …
Today is stormy and rainy … So I’m listening to my favorite music, reading de Correspondent , follow the money, the real news and many more … trying to follow the turbulent world news (the repeating history) … and I almost cut my hair … 😉 my “freak flag”
Traditionally I will stand on the roof (which is about 50 meters high) of the factory at 24:00h.But there was a thick fog over Walcheren, so there was nothing to be seen of the fireworks in the cities. So I made some photos of my colleague Tim and went back to work … I wishContinue reading “I had the night shift during the New Year”
I went to Veere to have a look … and had my camera with me … it was raining first, but soon the sky cleared and the sun started to give a magnificent light … there were a few moments when there was a reasonable wind over the Veerse Meer, in these circumstances the oldContinue reading “Hendrik Willem van Loon Hardzeildag 2019”
Okay, not really on Rolling Stone, but on the front page of Op de Hoogte. The magazine of IVN Walcheren. One of her photos was chosen by the editors for the magazine. The other photos can be seen from 1 June at the exhibition in the Schellach cheese farm.
These are typical rain showers, especially in the province of Zeeland. You can see them arriving far in advance. As a photographer, I strongly feel a need to capture them with the compact camera that I always have with me.

… so I had to use my Canon S120 in emergency. But it’s the dork behind the camera that makes photos ….. So I did my best in favor of the memory.
This is a photo of Marjan and Tineke. But it was quite busy on the Veerse Meer … so it’s a bit of a search.
