Just a B&W frozen view from the living room with a 300MM zoom in February
Since some weeks mostly one roe is here around the house in the fields but now and then even a father and mother with a calf of last year? The family is not on photo but my rendez vous or meet and greet with the solitaire roe deer is although there is minimum 20-30 meters distance between us but mostly around 50 meters.
A composition 🙂

Thoughts off…. reflections off…. looking for…. today’s struggle when I feel Spring is awakening and the garden wants attention. Idea’s are coming and going still not decided what to do. I enjoyed the beauty given by the Crocuses in yellow purple and white. Some other species shows their coming-up on the stage of the lawn around the house. I already have prepared some beds for seeds and plants. In some beds I need to put more soil and sand but main job lays ahead. Since idea’s shared with garden-lovers I am planning to create several square-foot-gardens besides the kitchen-garden redesigning the yard into ‘we will see’ look. Slowly beauty is coming and the cold wind holds me back to start so I have more time to create a ‘new’ garden look. Gardening is also a travel in time, a voyage with I hope fruitful sights and tastes. You are Welcome to see and even taste my harvest during the year, hope I share with you my work and good food in harmony with fine weather. Delicious fruit vegetables, whose the first? cooking with me 🙂 and enjoy the own grown food.
Since ‘I waked-up’ the days after ‘I left’ the fairy tale world, same but different beauty is still around or surrounds me. Today I walked back to the places of January 18 when taking the frozen fog pictures from the garden or down in the fields, for sure angle is slightly different as it is another day. The story reflects and express the feelings of that ‘Wednes’day through my eyes and mind, besides enjoying, seeing and sharing this beautiful fairy tale landscape the day after, I got a best gift surprise 🙂 a few words compliment, I was touched by these words. Hope my ‘still to come’ stories in words or images makes you just as passionate as me about the beauty of nature, in my (or your) region and beyond so I can give you my passion of photographing and sharing stories to enjoy everywhere.
This morning January 18,
I woke up in the most picturesque and beautiful landscape, a white coloured landscape came into my bedroom when opening the curtains. Still the fog was downing the beauty of this special kind of natural creation. Blinking crystal stars came to live after the sun touched the snowy fog crystals just when I had no camera in my hand or even with me. Shopping ‘can be expensive’ when you are on your way for daily shopping and miss the supreme moment, the opening of the clouds by the sun pushing away the fog and make the landscape magic blue and white with trees as statues, a snowy white feeling of a romantic illusion but caught in our eyes as a dream painting. Meander by car through the rustique landscape, a curvy road to town and back home I took my camera and walk into the perfect world temporary to embrace and freeze warmly. Every step you do you feel overloaded with natural gifts and impressions where and what to photograph, hoping the sun will break through again for the ultimate shot, I had great help of my artificial sun, my flash-light for some close-ups or macro’s. Starting in the garden I ended up in the fields around to share these moments of joy 🙂
Hope you are, as just as impressed as I was, surrounded by, breathing beauty.
Love from the garden: Alcea rosea One of the many flowers
The garden is starting to show small paintings of nature.
Since a few weeks ago the Lilac [Syringa vulgaris] showed her beauty and shows a colourful bouquet of flowers in the garden. When passing its a joy to see and the smell of the blossom surrounds you, the best natural perfume for free, just takes a moment to absorb.

The world upside down in a water-drip makes it almost a globe. Just turned the leave to show the reflection of the sky and trees in the drip
The last time I haven’t have so much creativity to write or photograph. Still a lot to come. Have a great time and enjoy.
Winter arrived for a few days to disconnect us from the world.
In the week of January 6 in the northern provinces of the Netherlands were covered with ice after one night of snow, rain turned roads into glazed ice rinks. The highest grade of our weather warning system was given to the public, code red with the warning not to go out on the streets. This natural lock-down took 3 days of our freedom to travel. A few times a day I had to go out to feed the rabbits and chicken and walking on the grass was not so slippery as on the tiles. As this glazed ice is very rare for so long I couldn’t resist not to make pictures but limited myself to a one time walk around with my camera in the garden and the fields to avoid accidents which can happen on a icy underground. Photo is made on January 6.
For the birds it was paradise as most predators were not active during those days.
