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.

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.

Hyacinths

The Netherlands, Voorhout – April 2021

The Lens Artists Photo Challenge#144 for this week is ‘taking flight’. The flying objects in this photo are the clouds, chasing on the frisky Northern wind this morning. Covering the familiar display of rows of hyacinths in full bloom.

Afterglow

The Netherlands, Voorhout – May 2020

The theme for the weekly Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #97 is ‘pastimes’.

Normally the bulb fields attract tourists in the Spring. The colours are always fantastic to see. Let alone the smell. In The Netherlands we are in an intelligent lockdown since March 12th. To prevent people from flocking into the bulb fields the growers decided to chop the heads sooner than normal. After all the bulbs that are on the field are meant to be sold, you can order them online from August. The flowers are taking too much strength out of the bulbs, that is why they are chopped off after flowering. Last weekend we spotted two fields still in bloom, and decided to have a closer look on a bicycle ride. This is what we found.
