Moon over Marshes

England, Blakeney – January 2023

The Lens Artists Photo Challenge #233 is ‘a one lense walk‘. The first week of 2023 we had a short stay at Norfolk; the beauty of its coast and its wildlife gave ample opportunities for photos. The Nikon D500 has the 18-105 mm lens on it. The marshes on the quay of Blakeney around sunrise.

The Netherlands, Leiden – August 2022

This week lens artists challenge #214 is ‘favourite finds’. A typical Dutch landscape on a warm day, with boats coming and going to the lakes. The find was the little ferry we used to cross this water, the river Zijl near Leiden.

Row Row Row your boat

The Netherlands, Lisse – April 2022

The Lens-artists challenge #197 is ‘rule of thirds’. The rule of thirds is a rule of thumb how to compose images. There are more ‘rules’; another is the ‘s’ like in the photo above. Whatever rule you like to use: break them and tweak them till you are happy with the result of the photo you are putting together. In the end your gut tells a lot about what constitutes a decent picture to your liking.

The Netherlands, Scheveningen – July 2004

This week lens artists photo challenge is ‘that special place’. The beach is a place to relax, let go and create space and a fresh head. And you can see more than water and beach at times. This one is also an entry for Paula’s pick a word competition on ‘Lost in Translatation’. It looks like the surfers are in chaos, but actually they use the water and wind systematic.

Galgenwater Leiden

The Netherlands, Leiden – June 2016

This weeks challenge #187 is ‘water’. The Galgenwater in Leiden. In the background a replica a of the mill that was used by the father of Rembrandt van Rijn, who was born to the left of the bridge in the distance in 1606, 410 years before this photo.
