I have always loved photographing landscapes purely because you find yourself in peaceful surroundings. It makes you calm and because you are kind of alone in a "deserted" environment you get even more of an eye for the beautiful things around you.
I love to wander around on beaches and dunes, in forests and, if the chance arises, in mountainous landscapes. Due to the corona situation, I haven't really been able to do the latter yet, but they are definitely on my wish list when things return to normal.
Most of the landscape photos I take with my wide-angle lens so that you get a nice depth in what you are photographing. For example, a few months ago I was in Scheveningen in The Hague where I saw the WWII bunkers again and immediately took some photos of them. Bunkers have always interested me since I was 7 or 8 years old and played in the bunkers at Hoek van Holland. In those days, all bunkers were free to enter and you could go into them all but unfortunately, nowadays they have closed everything for the public. This is because vandalism has unfortunately taken over and therefore it is understandable that they have taken this decision,
Recently I have been to the most famous windmills of the Netherlands and I made, if I say so myself, some nice pictures of them. I will tell you more about it in my new blog post.
