I am a retired historian, living in the Netherlands, and practising photography since my youth, but especially since going digital in 2004.

Mottos:

“There is so much beautiful light in the world.” (Wilhelm Raabe)

“Colours are the smile of nature.” (William Holman Hunt)

The gallery contains mainly pictures from the Netherlands. Some from my various trips to the Baltic Sea will be added from time to time. Two visits to Scotland brought some nice additions, too.

For your convenience you can find the pictures in separate subgroups:

The Netherlands

Amsterdam

Utrecht

The Baltic Sea
