          "Nature provides life - let nature live"  was the motto, that my daughter Desiree had written on the door of her bedroom. Without nature no life!! In our times of pollution and CO2  emissions a very important issue.
          Actually for me, plants and landscapes, many times connected with travelling, are my real passion. And 'fixing' it in photographs  is a wonderful way to express it.  Yet I will deal with these subjects seperately, so landscapes, nature and plants, though the differences are fluent.

        As you can see, looking at the pictures with links to bigger ones, I understand nature quite broad. From fall colours of trees and shrubs to a beautiful sunset. From flowering haselnut catkins to any butterfly on a flower.
          You don't have to go far from home to make the most fascinating photographs. Many of them I just made in our own large garden-park or not far away of it. Also many slides in a 'recent era'. Now, at the moment I write this, Dec. 3rd, we sold our house in Nijensleek and next year we will move to a new home in Dalfsen, not far from Zwolle. New surroundings - new challenges!! I am looking forward to it, to stroll around in a new region with the river 'Vecht', heatherfields and vast woods. 
          But I also hope, that new trips next year 2008 will give me a lot of opportunities to photograph, nature and culture. Like a trip to the Algarve in Portugal, and visiting the USA and the ARS Convention in the state Oklahoma. I'll inform you as good as I can. 
          We all should have an open mind to see the beauty of nature, better than to be bored, hanging around in a chair.........The world is so wonderful, that it would be a waste of time and talent not to go around and admire it. I have also dreams, like to visit Alaska, New Foundland, Eastern Canada, South Africa with its treasures of flowers etc. 
           Anyway - this winter I have plenty to do: scanning thousands of slides of trips before. Time consuming, but nice, because I will go through memories of trips in the past......
