Hit the 25000 views milestone

… and that is excluding the countless views via the WordPress reader by other bloggers. Thank you all! And until so far (after a tiny bit more than 1 yr) 675 followers who faithfully follow my trials and errors. It’s not the quantity of the followers that count but the quality. I’m very, very happy. 🙂 🙂 🙂

For all of you a flower (Dutch always say it with flowers!), a Stanford sunrise and a sunset.

Today is also the day that the latest online edition of LandnSand Magazine published my photographic essay about landscape photography.

One Misty Morning 4

In primary school in Holland we learned that clouds were made above the sea. During many travels abroad we learned that this is not (always) the case. Thursday Morning August 1 I did my farm tour around the village and this is part 4 of the result. Sometimes I’m still in doubt wether I will process a picture in B&W or in color. In those cases I will publish both. Same applies for processing in color so there is one ‘chapter’ in the serie with two full color images of the same landscape. Maybe some of you have an opinion?

At last but not at least I have to thank all those farmers and their staff who let me intrude in their work and life. It’s a homage to all those fine people who are shaping the landscape that inspires me endlessy. Thank you guys!

15000 hits

At 7 AM this morning this site achieved the milestone of 15000 hits. Not too shabby I hope. Thanks to all my followers and the others ‘who hit the nail on its head’ (Dutch expression). For all of you a flower parade. Dutch always say it with flowers; especially the ones living in South Africa.

Thank you!!!

But first of all thanks to the ‘love of my life’ Yvonne. Without her … ah… well.. 🙂
