Nature AllBeekBeekdaelenMaasmechelenSittard-GeleenSteinVaalsValkenburg Silent Morning 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) Crooked View Exiting the dark woodland of the Kelmonderbos (Beek, Limburg) I had this view over the adjacent fenced off fields, which were lit by the rising morning sun. Because of the crooked trees I could frame this image in a somewhat unusual but interesting way 🙂 (2017) A Ranger's Lookout Scattered around the forests in Limburg, you'll find many small lookouts like this one in the Vijlenerbos (Limburg, The Netherlands) (2017). Autumn Heath At the end of september I went to the Hoge Kempen National Park on a early misty sunday morning. Among the purple flowering heath trees and bushes started to color. The first sign that Autumn was near! (2017) Green Wheat Close by, green wheat becomes a bit of an abstract! As seen somewhere along the Steingraafpad near the villages of Munstergeleen and Puth. (2009) Wooden Bench 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) Mistletoe Trees full of mistletoe, in between the Julianakanaal (Juliana Canal) and the Maas (Meuse river) near the towns of Geulle and Elsloo. Mistletoe is quite common in Zuid-Limburg as opposed to the rest of the Netherlands and they grow all year long! (2006) Chaos Countless tree trunks and branches along one of the many paths in the "Schinveldse Bossen" (Forest of Schinveld). In this compressed view (shot at a focal length of 110mm) it looks quite chaotic! (2018) Want to frame these photos? Order quality prints at Oypo!
