Mostly photography, with the occasional philosophical contemplation

Over the Hedge


Over de heg klein

Lean on, balance yourself for the act. Just as the dragonfly easily balances itself on a branch, i had to balance myself and lean over a little beech hedge to get this shot. At first i was not too happy that the dragonfly had moved from a ‘better’ spot, but seeing the shot with the leaves out of focus actually creates quite a nice atmosphere πŸ™‚ Well, at least that’s what i see in it lol

The Little Dragon


Still use the first camera once in a while, its a small compact camera (Canon Powershot 470). Really great for macro photography. So probably should get a macro lens to have a bit of fun πŸ™‚ As the temperature is rising, soon insects will start to flourish again. And that means that the dragons will also show up again. These images were shot in the garden, and the dragonfly you see is a Common Darter. Played a bit with colors and black and white for this result

A Dragon’s Smile part II


This is one of the first photos I posted here on this blog. Came across this while checking the archive on the pc and I thought it was worth to share with you. A little bit different composition and edit makes this new lol. And I guess most of you haven’t seen this beauty before. Take in the smile and have a lovely day today! You may rest and enjoy a nice sweet Sunday πŸ™‚
