Flow lines

Autumn in the Ardennes. Yesterday Bas Mandos and I followed this little mountain stream (La Hoëgne) that starts on the Hautes Fagnes plateau and ends just south of Liège in the river La Meuse, in search for nice compositions. Beautiful place!

Mistletoe

What happens under the mistletoe stays under the mistletoe! They are the music notes in the trees.
Panorama stitch with 2 exposures. Captured this morning with drizzle in Limburg, The Netherlands. Excellent weather for showing the warm and saturated autumn colors.

Black watchers and white angel

I was entirely in the flow at the Strabrechtse Heide this morning. The light was great. After a short encounter with Scottish Highland Cattle in the dark I photographed these characteristic pine tree silhouettes in the blue hour followed by a great session with a Great White Egret (Ardea alba/Grote Zilverreiger). He or she was solemnly wading in the water surrounded by the void. Again I went by bike. This way my reach is wider and I can move faster than on foot. And above all, it is really an excellent way to experience quietness and get into the flow.
