Finally the sunny days have come.
A misty spring morning with fresh green treen and wild flowers. I’m so happy to live here!
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!
I’ve been living here for almost five months now, an sometimes I really feel I’ve entered a fairytale when I go for my morning walk!
“I let it be, this unbreakable light
So that I become one, uncomplicated and whole.”
A beautiful castle in the province of Gelderland. The tree is allegedly the oldest oak in the Netherlands – maybe 800 years old. Imagine what it must have seen!
Even in the beech forest, the first signs of spring are there.
… catches the best light on a foggy morning!
I generally prefer tele lenses to wide angle lenses. I just like the feeling of being able to bring what I see closer. Because tele lenses are often heavy, I have gotten used to bringing my 85mm lens with me when I go hiking. It has some tele-quality and is not too heavy. And when I see a landscape that I want to capture, I just take a few vertical shots and stitch them together in a panorama. Which is exactly how this landscape came to be!
