Couple

The Netherlands, Oegstgeest – May 2021

The theme for his week Lens-artists challenge #150 is ‘Let’s go wild’.
Near our house there is an artificial lake created by the need for sand for infrastructural building. The sand was used to build a railway and as a base for houses and roads. On the banks is big nest box for Sand Martins. They come all the way from Africa and normally hatch in steep river walls. After creating their offspring they move back to Africa. In the setting sun they play in the sky, chasing each other.

Rain

The Netherlands, Oegstgeest – May 2021

The theme for his week Lens-artists challenge #150 is ‘Let’s go wild’.
The Netherlands does not really have original wild parts where nature still rules; we do have nature, but nature is being managed. We manage and maintain our dense populated country all over, to achieve efficiency (the post stamp like farm fields, outlined by straight canals from the sky, a view tourists seem to enjoy approaching Schiphol Airport etc) or benefits of scale and standardization. But not all can be controlled. One thing we have to adjust to and have no control over is the weather and the effects of climate change. Spring was very wet and had heavy showers. We can manage the extra water and rising sea levels, but the intensity of the rain is a more and more a given.
