Spring in my ‘Dutch backyard’ (2016)

4 augustus 2016

Last year I made a report called: ‘Spring in my ‘Dutch backyard’ (2015)’. When I go out photographing in my own country I make only a few photographs. Most of the time it is a short trip or just a visit to the national park near my home. Not really enough to make a trip […]

Poland 2016: Białowieża Forest

18 mei 2016

Ever since I read about the Białowieża Forest and the European Bison (Bison bonasus) in a magazine I wanted to visit this place. To explain why this place is special I first need to write down a little history from Wikipedia. If you just want to see the photos, feel free to scroll down of course, but […]

27 september 2015

After a very beautiful montane adventure at Mount Mulanje and a rather disappointing short adventure at the Zomba Plateau it is time to show you my first ‘typical African wildlife experience’. A ‘typical African wildlife experience’ is how I have always imagined African nature. I imagined Africa as one big wilderness with elephants, lions, zebras, giraffes, hippos, […]

Sand Lizard (Lacerta agilis)

Late summer in the Netherlands

18 januari 2015

In September 2014 I had two small adventures in the Netherlands. I did not have time to edit and present my photos on my website. I was too busy with my big adventure to Malaysia of last summer. A few weeks later than the small trips of this update I went to Romania and Bulgaria. I […]

My last adventure brought me to Romania and Bulgaria (13 – 19 October 2014). It was my first autumn trip to another part of Europe.

Another episode of my ‘green quest’

4 juni 2014

Another walk in the Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen. This time I almost ran to the European tree frogs (Hyla arborea), because I really wanted to make another photo.

The quest continues…

26 mei 2014

Last Tuesday I finally made a photo of a green sand lizard (Lacerta agilis). I did not have much time, because it was already in the evening. I made some nice shots in that short time. The next episode in my quest to make a green sand lizard photo was last Friday. This time I […]

Green evening in spring

21 mei 2014

During a long and hot day at work, Bobby texted me if I wanted to go to the Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen to see European tree frogs (Hyla arborea). The weather would be perfect to see them. There was almost no wind, so they would be easier to find. I had not seen any European tree frogs for a long […]

In a weekend with beautiful weather Yara and I went for a walk in the Haarlemmermeerse bos. The expectations for wildlife were low, but still we found Marsh Frogs (Pelophylax ridibundus) and Edible Frogs (Pelophylax kl. esculentus). They were calling very loud. For some people a beautiful sound, for others a nightmare. It is on for […]

Common frog (Rana temporaria)

Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen III

3 april 2014

Daylight saving time and getting up early were a bit of a challenge. Yara and I were still in the Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen at a reasonable time. Nature has its own time. Our main goal was the red fox (Vulpes vulpes) and hopefully some nice amphibians and maybe a sand lizard (Lacerta agilis). The weather was […]

Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen II

9 maart 2014

Tufted Ducks (Aythya fuligula) are very common at this time of the year. You can see them everywhere. They are very shy and hard to photograph. This time I got quite close.

Sometimes I like experimenting with photoshop and look for better techniques. Photoshop and Lightroom have also improved. Each version gets better and better.

This update is about a desert plateau near the town Boumalne Dades. This is near the High Atlas. It is an extremely hot place to be in summer. It was at least 40°C. We had to get up early and rest in the afternoon because it was way too warm. Still we saw interesting new […]

Mediterranean tree frog (Hyla meridionalis)

Tour to Morocco 2013 (Monfragüe)

13 augustus 2013

The second stop was Parque Nacional de Monfragüe (Spain). A good place to get used to the heat. At the camping there were a lot of Azure-winged Magpies (Cyanopica cyanus) flying around. Not very common to me. During the day trips (and some late evening trips) we saw different vultures, Large Psammodromus (Psammodromus algirus), Thekla Larks (Galerida theklae), Crested Larks (Galerida cristata), Spanish […]
