The Dutch Pyramid

The pyramid of Austerlitz was build by one of the generals in the army of Napoleon, but was named after a Czech village. The general who build the pyramid had hopes it would be named after him, but history proved him wrong..

Church on the Hill

Leave a comment

Found this digital painting while i was looking through the archive. It’s an edited image of the ‘Bergkerk’ (Mountain Church) in Deventer. But as we don’t know real mountains in the Netherlands, i’ve dubbed this the Church on the Hill πŸ™‚

Thanks for all the (new) follows. Very cool to see 700 followers! A great source of inspiration πŸ™‚

Wish you all a lovely weekend!

Last week we had a day out with the colleagues at work and we visited famous Dutch castle Muiderslot. Took a few shots to make a panorama/wide angle shot and gave it a bit of a personal touch. This is the result πŸ™‚

Last year i entered this photo into a local photo contest and to my surprise this photo was one of the three winners. And a few days ago i received a message that the organization behind that contest had entered my photo in yet another contest. So i thanked them and suggested they should share the photo on social media, since the most votes get awarded.

So i thought it would be fun to get some international votes for the photograph too πŸ™‚
I would be very glad if you are willing to vote for this photo in the contest, let’s see if i have a chance. You may have to search for my photo, should be on the first page, but not sure as other entries might be added. You should click on ‘STEM’ (which is Dutch for VOTE)
Link to contest

ps. If you don’t want a newsletter, don’t forget to tick off the newsletter when you cast your vote. Or perhaps you want to learn some Dutch, then it’s ok πŸ˜›

And in the mean time, enjoy the scenery just as the Germans on the photo and me behind the lens did πŸ™‚

Digitally Painting Deventer

After seeing Mitza’s beautiful painting i couldn’t resist creating some ‘drawings’ myself, while using phtoos of the city of Deventer only.
Tried a lot of different layers and effects, which was fun to do. It is incredible how sophisticated today’s software is.. i wish you all an inspiring and creative weekend!

The Kop van Zuid is an area in Rotterdam situated along the Maas river and is developing into a very modern part of the city with large skyscrapers. Took a few images a while back when i was in Rotterdam and made a new edit today. Shot taken from the Erasmus bridge
