Holtingerveld

I had an experiment I wanted to do today, so we went to the Holtingerveld this morning. This is my first try at HDR photography and Panorama stitching. I am really happy with the results! Video

Birthday

It is always fun, yet challenging, to capture beautiful moments at a children’s birthday party. This is more so the case if you are also a guest at the party and you need to find a balance between being behind the camera, as well as enjoying the party and mingling with everyone else. I had […]

Heino

When the sun comes out, we explore! Our destination was Heino, The Netherlands. Our Saturday outing started with a lovely braai with our South African friends – boerewors rolls! Delicious! Then, a walk in the forest… I am always amazed at the beautiful mansions we discover when we go exploring in the forest. It must […]

It is autumn in The Netherlands and it has been raining for weeks! Every now and then we have a few hours of sunshine and I try to make use of these little opportunities as best I can… Today we had a few hours of sunshine and decided not to travel too far away from […]

Amsterdam

Spent the day walking around in Amsterdam – 15,94km or 21 236 steps to be exact… I absolutely love the architecture of Amsterdam and love to visit there, though I would never live in Amsterdam, as it is way too busy for me. The weather wasn’t great. It was pouring down with rain most of […]

Kopje Cultuur Festival

Today was the annual Kopje Cultuur Festival in Steenwijk and our little city was buzzing with activity. The children were well entertained and enjoyed the drumming lessons on the square. Each child had a pair of drumsticks and a bucket to bang on. There was also an art exhibition in the Sint Clemens Church with […]

Amersfoort

Today’s destination was the lovely city of Amersfoort, about an hour away, by car. We often pass Amersfoort when we take the train to Amsterdam and every time we go past it, I see Koppelpoort and make a mental note that one day I want to go there. Well, today was the day! We started […]

Passiflorahoeve

Another amazing outing! Today we visited the Pasiflorahoeve butterfly farm in Harskamp, The Netherlands. As soon as you walk into the greenhouses, you notice the damp and heat. Once I stopped commenting on that, I noticed the thousands of butterflies flying around. So many different types and colours. They landed on us a few times […]

Skûtsjesilen

On Friday the 5th of July 2019, I went sailing in Friesland, The Netherlands. It was a bit of a drive to get there but it was so worth it! The scenery was absolutely amazing and I have fallen in love with the water and sailing. We went on a flat bottom sailing boat called […]

Ford Museum

We had a very hot day in the Netherlands today, 35 degrees celcius, so we decided to go exploring on our bicycles. The original idea was to go to the farms just outside Apeldoorn, as I wanted to take some photos of farm animals. We ended up at the Ford museum in Beekbergen and decided […]
