We’ve had code orange and code red in the Netherlands all day, warnings to go home on time, to not go out on the road if it’s not really necessary and a record length in traffic-jams. All in all that was a bit much for what little snow we had in the North of the Netherlands, but it did make for a nice view: Snowy wintery landscapes!

I saw the forst tulip-fields of this year on my bike-ride today… It’s finally really spring!
More photos from today’s ride and all rides of this year over here.
We had a great and sunny day today, so after work I made the most of what was left of the day for a short walk. In the last light of day, with lots of impressive plane trails in the sky it was a very nice bit of walking.

The evenings are getting a bit longer, so it’s a good time to start walking a bit more. Especially when it’s not raining and 9 degrees outside!

It’s full on winter in the Netherlands and we have had a few days of frost now. And yes: I do know that there are a lot of places in the world where will be far, far colder, but at a mere -6 degrees for a few days the Netherlands turn into a fairytale like scene with beautiful white trees…

With a fresh pack of snow and a clear sky it was a great afternoon to get outside and walk for an afternoon. And walk I did, over 20km in all.

As the year draws to an end I’ve been thinking over the many activities over the past year. New experiences, great moments, a few lesser moments and oh so many photos.
Continue reading A short review on 2016 and a small insight in 2017?
I had a lovely walk in Drenthe this afternoon. A bit over 20km in just over three and a half hours. Unfortunately it was mostly completely cloudy, but on the other hand it wasn’t cold nor did it rain. So all in all a very nice walk.

This was most likely the last time this year I’d be able to go out on such a long ride after work: 84km in nearly 3 hours. However once the sun is gone the cold gets serious and with sweaty clothing that’s not much fun. Also I was racing against the sunset today. I learned my lesson last year and have a good set of lights with me, cycling in daytime is far far better.

It might seem a bit like an addiction, or that I’m a bit nuts… both are probably right. But hey… as long as we have good weather and there’s some light to go out cycling after work… why not? So after yesterday’s 120km ride, I took it a bit easy tonight and stayed just onder 60km. The views were gorgeous again.

I really ought to get back to shooting the X-Pro2 soon, it’s just that on sunny Sundays like yesterday the Bianchi is way more attractive then any camera could ever be. And the iPhone 6S might not be as good, it is light and as it’s used for GPS-tracking it’s also always with me. So a few more iPhone shots from the road then!
A couple more after the break:

After two weeks of rides on the Bianchi, my Achielle Sam was starting to feel neglected (and rightly so, that Bianchi is a slice of Italian heaven!) so I took the Achielle for a ‘relaxing’ ride this afternoon. That is… relaxing according to my standards!
A few more photos after the break

It was a bit more cloudy then yesterday, but still good enough for a ride and some photos of the Bianchi :)
There’s a few more after the jump Continue reading Bianchi posing
