The weather was great in the past week, but the forest is still waiting for spring. And maybe that is for the best, since tomorrow the temperature is expected to drop again.
Once in a while it’s great to go back and look at old unedited photographs. Sometimes they are gems waiting to be discovered!
On Christmas Day I fell during a hike and it left me sore and unable to walk – let alone walk with my camera backpack – for some time. I’m happy that I’m now completely healed and again able to go on hikes with my camera. Fortunately this weekend the weather was perfect as well, so I was able to take some nice misty shots!
Winters in the Netherlands are often grey, damp and dark. But every once in a while there’s a perfect crisp morning!
As the days grow shorter and colder, there is a lot of moisture in the air, more often than not in the form of rain. It seems to wash away colors and details, leaving only the most essential information.
This place looks like it stepped out of a story book. The fall colors make it a truly magical place.
Today, the world showed itself from its minimalist side…
I took this picture, and looking at it on my laptop I thought, “Nah, too misty, and with those dead trees… Let’s throw it out.” Then I looked at it again today, and now I think it’s actually beautiful! Weird, how your perception changes from day to day…
Sorry for being quiet for such a long time! It’s been busy, but fortunately I did have time to go out with my camera now and again. So here’s a batch of my favorite forest pictures of the past months!
