Sunrays burst through the trees on a sunny sunday morning in Autumn at the border of the Schaelsbergerbos (forest) in Oud-Valkenburg. Locals will know this location as "De Drie Beeldjes" (The Three Statues). The bridge to the right leads to Schaloensvoetpad and Kasteel Schaloen. (2017)
Early morning mist in nature park "De Teut". The title of the image refers to "the 8th color" in the Discworld universe: a sort of greenish purple yellow (but only visible to wizards and cats of course!). (2018)
The Third Season
Autumn colours along a quiet forest path in Daniken (Geleen). (2014)
Looking out over a small but wonderful patch of woodland, called "Kelmonderbos", near Geverik and Beek (Limburg, The Netherlands). I quite like the browns and greens in contrast to the blueish sky with the moon visible as well (2017).
"Wyck" is one of the many urban quarters of Maastricht. It has a long history and was once seen as a place "outside of Maastricht", but nowadays it's an upcoming area full of trendy shops and good restaurants! (2016)
The quote on the bench is a clever play on words in the Dutch language: it both means (generally speaking) "you are at the right spot being in the landscape of Limburg" as well as (specific) "you are sitting right here, on a bench, in the middle of Limburg's landscape". (2017)
In Between Yellow and Red
Looking up while walking along the Hommelsdaalweg in between the villages of Genhout and Beek, I noticed the sky turning remarkably orange - well, maybe not this much, but creatively it reflects the mood of that particular November afternoon, right before sunset! (2014)
Early morning mist drifts through the trees in National Park Hoge Kempen (Limburg, Belgium). Because it was at the end of September, the heath was still quite purple which gives the scene a nice color-contrast as well! (2017)
Looks like a sky replacement composite image, right? No, this day the clouds where actually there! 🙂 Funny the way the cumulus clouds formed right above the rural town of Schimmert in Zuid-Limburg (South of the Netherlands). The image title refers to the exponential function in mathematics, kind of how these clouds formed; minute after minute they expanded more and more and more 🙂 A great sight! (2017)
With all the beautiful places around the world, sometimes we forget to look at our own backyard!
I live in The Netherlands in a province called Limburg – THIS is my backyard!
Photography is something I like to do in my free time. Over the years I have accumulated a lot of images that gathered digital dust and I wanted to do something with them. Well, what better way than to showcase them on a website!
