A long exposure in black of white of the pink flamingos at the Artis, the Amsterdam Zoo

The Pink Flamingos Artis, the Amsterdam Zoo

Something a little different this week. Weeks ago in a cold winter day, I had the idea of making a long exposure of the flamingos at the Artis, the wonderful zoo in Amsterdam. I had hoped that most of them would be standing still and sleeping, and I got lucky, as …

A foggy evening on the Pastoorbrug in Amsterdam

A foggy evening on the Pastoorbrug in Amsterdam

Taken quite a few weeks ago when Amsterdam was covered in a thick winter fog. This area of Amsterdam is one of the most picturesque, as well as one of the oldest. Starting from the Brouwersgracht over in the Joordan, and stretching into the medieval core of the city, it is one …

Amsterdam, Veer Distelweg Long Exposure

Just before 2014 came to an end, I travelled to Amsterdam Noord and made this long exposure of the Veer Distelweg ferry stop. The weather was terrible and I did not manage to capture a log of cloud movement, but I am pleased how this turned out. I decided to process it in …

Scheveningen Sunset #2

  Back to colour today, and also back to Scheveningen. Taken on the same day as my previous post of the same subject, just a few minutes later in the day. I wanted to stretch the colours on this one even further then what I’ve done previously, and I’m quite pleased with …

Scheveningen Sunset #3

  Felt like going back into the archives to post another long exposure shot of Scheveningen at sunset taken last August. This image is similar to a black and white version I posted a little while back. I picked this one also because it was entirely processed in Adobe Lightroom …
