Happiness

According to a Buddhist saying, “The flowers in spring, the moon in the fall, a refreshing wind in summer, the snow in winter- what do I need more? Every hour is an hour of happiness for me.”

Being in nature and perceiving its beauty certainly gives me happiness!

Goodbye to the forest

It’s time to say goodbye to this beautiful forest where we have lived the past two months. Tomorrow we will be moving to another temporary home, this time within Hermen’s new congregation. It’s a good spot as well, so I’m looking forward to discovering the photographic opportunities there!

Autumn equinox

A celebration of the sun on this autumn equinox, the day in which the sun crosses the equator and day and night are roughly equally long. This morning, the sun had to fight the fog first, which led to these beautiful rays of light filtering through the trees.

Malachite kingfisher

The malachite kingfisher is one of the most beautifully colored kingfishers, with its creamy orange belly and dark blue back. If you are lucky, it will even show you its bright blue crest!
