The Tall Tower

One of the ministries in The Hague city by night. Didn’t have a tripod with me, so i was a bit limited concerning compositions. So i choose to go for a more playful approach. Hope you like it and i wish you all a nice saturday

The Hague

2 Comments

First two images of The Hague city, in the west of the Netherlands. The first image shows a lot of ministries and the royal library. The right shows the business center with a love of tall buildings and a special construction made for the trams which pass through the streets. Very interesting to be in a city more now and to be able to explore the cityscape. There will be more images to follow, but as always i start with my personal favorites πŸ˜€

The Bell Tower

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.[..]

This church called Bergkerk in Dutch (in English it would be Mountain Church) and can be found in the Hanze city of Deventer. The light was beautiful yesterday, so i took a few pictures to capture this πŸ™‚

View over the Vragenderveen

As promised some more pictures in a gallery of the Vragenderveen with the watchtower. Really amazing view over the bog, which covers quite a large area. They even got Crane birds in here, wonderful to see them. Don’t know whether i’ll be able to catch them on camera though as they’re very much secluded

One of the biggest castles in the Netherlands, De Haar castle is a truly amazing sight. Picture taken by my parents and the post-editing done by me. Would love to do some long exposures at this spot on a calm and cloudy day πŸ™‚
