Foggy Photo Walk… #netherlands #photography #travel

Yesterday was such a wonderful day.  It has been cold here, but we spent the whole day walking to one of our favourite areas and taking photos of the surrounds.  The weather was so foggy, it seemed nearly impossible to take a bad photo!

IMG_5699I spent a lot of time yesterday experimenting with various raindrop photos.  I am by no means a photographer, but I am happy with how some of these turned out.

The fog lent a mysterious air to our photos and made everything look dreamy and antiquated.

IMG_5722 IMG_5731 IMG_5758As it got darker, and the temperature fell, the fog intensified.

Before it got dark we got some really great shots, almost in sepia tone with a reddish hue.  My only regret is that my lens is dirty and you can see some definite dirt in some of the shots.  Maybe that just makes the shots look older? Haha.

I really enjoy these long meandering photo walks and it’s so nice to be able to do these walks in the winter.  I hope you enjoyed some of my photos!

Turkey!

Rather than a long-winded explanation to explain my absence from blogging, I think it’s easier if I just continue on like it didn’t happen hah! All I can say is that I hope to be more consistent, and make a more concerted effort.  Basically to sum it up quickly (even though I just said I wasn’t going to), it was a mix of laziness, apathy and self-consciousness.  Anyway….So here we are, now, travelling again, in Turkey!

A trip to #Leiden…

We went to Leiden today.  Another beautiful city, only fifteen minutes away by train…

Fields awash with colour as seen from the train…tulip field in full bloom…

Leiden is a beautiful city that used to be walled and many windmills still stand in their original places at the edges of the old city…
