It’s great to have more light in the evening again and at moments like these I’m so happy that neture’s a mere 5 minute walk away from home. The first for hopefully many more evening walks after work!
A few more photos after the break
It was visible only shortly, but there was a huge rainbow over Assen today…
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!
Monica and I have been exchanging options and ideas for a long long time as to where to go on vacation this year and it was mostly hard to find a location where we’d both be able to fly to in a fairly decent way. That was really hard in the beginning of our search, but when we got it, al the pieces suddenly fit together seamlessly.
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…
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.
It’s been a month since I really did some photography (not really counting the few photos I took of the World Press Photo exposition). Coming back sick from vacation, dark nights and working in daytime and editing a huge amount of vacation-photos didn’t make me reach out to my camera immediately. However after a month I figured it was about time again. Also it was high time for a bit of hiking again!
