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 🙂

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

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 🙂

Going Forth

Leave a comment

For now a small break from the writing with images as i notice i like to share some photos too. This one was taken back in 2013. It was very impressive to stand in front of the Forth railway bridge near Edinburgh back in 2013. Such an amazing sight. And then to think it’s over a century old. I tried to create a bit of a mood in this picture. Really worked with the light and the contrast here, to emphasize the bridge and the clouds.

The bell tower was finished in December 1893, and it is his only architectural work in Croatia. Otherwise, ground floor and first floor of the bell tower were built in 1452 (during Archbishop Vallaresso), while the upper floors were built from 1890 to 1894 by English architect and art historian Sir Thomas Graham Jackson, based on the model of the bell tower of the cathedral in Rab.[..]
