Mostly photography, with the occasional philosophical contemplation

My entry for this week’s Monochrome Madness as hosted by Leanne Cole. An image of the Maas river and a small part of the Rotterdam harbor industry, which is massive.

Tomorrow at http://leanecole.com.au/blog you can find all the entries for this week’s madness


2,5 kilometers


The length of the Millau viaduct is 2,5 kilometers. And yet, when you’re driving over it, it’s over before you know πŸ™‚

Rotterdam Towers



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

Waimakariri River



Saw this image some time ago on the blog, but as the years passed, i also learned a bit about horizon. So i edited this image and straightened it. One of the great memories from back in 2008 in New Zealand, we camped at this river called Waimakariri or Waimak for short. Very rocky and as it was the dry(er) season, not so much water. Wonderful stars at night and this beautiful scenery during the daytime

View From Up High


When we flew back from Croatia the sky was very clear, so we had this magnificent view over parts of Europe. Here are a few shots. First shot is Antwerp Harbor, second is the Maas river, third one is the city of Bergen op Zoom, the fourth one is a part of Germany and the fifth and six image are both from the Alps


Reflections of the city

Rotterdam reflectieraam klein

Rotterdam contains an increasing amount of great architecture and tall buildings. Old and new blend in seemingly without effort. Last year when i visited friends i took quite a lot of pictures and i still enjoy strolling through these photos. This is one of them, which i ‘rediscovered’. It’s a photo of a reflecting window with less reflecting panels alongside of it. This is the result i got from it πŸ™‚


Golden Autumn

An image from last year’s autumn with intense colors. Did a bit of HDR post edit if i remember it correctly. As it is almost a year ago i took this picture, a good moment to show it again πŸ™‚ Hope you don’t mind!

City of Deventer

This is part of the skyline of the city of Deventer in the east of the Netherlands. I’ll be working here starting next wednesday. Lovely city and a nice skyline. I’ll surely photograph this skyline more often in the coming months πŸ™‚

Passing by the river

Today while going back home, i had my camera with me and suddenly i decided to take this picture. This is the river IJssel near the city of Zutphen. Took this picture while in a moving train, so the sharpness is not 100%, but i like the composition. Hope you like it too πŸ™‚
