Low Horizon: View on Oegstgeest

The Netherlands, Voorhout – June 2022

This week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge is #206 ‘Treasures’. Life deserves to be treasured as it rolls out with us on our journey through our years. Lots of change happens during that trip. One of The Netherlands most wonderful features is the low horizon. Meaning we have so much sky, as a giant canvas to show clouds and patterns. The flat horizon does not attract too much attention, just offers some texture to the straight line. Showing the changes over the years as urbanization and commercial estates grow.

Dutch Vista

The Netherlands, Nieuw-Vennep – June 2022

Overtaking a farmer in a field next to the motorway. The Netherlands is as flat as a pancake here, and imagine a sea level about six meters higher than where we are. Well we are used to it. Lens Artists Photo Challenge #203 for this week is ‘local vistas’.

Red Field

The Netherlands, Voorhout – April 2022

The Lens-artists challenge #197 is ‘rule of thirds’. The rule of thirds is a rule of thumb how to compose images. But a photo that creates a journey of the eye can also be made by using lines and colors. Even when the horizon is not on 1/3.

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.
