Mostly photography, with the occasional philosophical contemplation

Common Darter


I had one of these fellows visiting the garden. Could get close to take some nice shots πŸ™‚

Broad-bodied Libellula


Found this beauty today at the Childrens farm. Have been quite busy lately, so that’s why i’m blogging a bit less. All part of the ever changing flow of life πŸ™‚

Giro D’Italia

Leave a comment

Today two friends and i went to the start of the Giro d’Italia in Apeldoorn, a city about 100km from where i live. As it was great weather, it was pretty busy in the city. At the start there is a Velodrome where the riders were to start. Before that we strolled through the parking lot where the buses of the various themes were standing. Saw a lot of riders and we then checked the start from the inside.

We then checked a bit of the course before we went to the city to find a bit of comfort and shade. Altogether a very nice event to watch and due to the great weather it was actually very crowded. Great crowd and great fun! And to top it of for the dutchies, a Dutch rider named Tom Dumoulin managed to win the prologue by no less than 2 hundreds of a second and may now ride in the pink jersey.

I leave you with a few shots of the day.

Early Crocus!



Pretty amazing to see Crocus flowering already! It’s still mid-winter, but apparently mother Nature thinks differently πŸ™‚
I remember these flowers growing early last year, but i cant remember them being so early! Special sighting for my average stony terrace πŸ™‚

In France we had one day of good weather and on this day a lot of lizards came out in the sunshine. Because it wasn’t warm the days before, they weren’t very quick. This gave me an excellent opportunity to get close with the mobile phone. This is one of the pictures i took with the camera that day
