Today I am extremely pleased to present you a second series this year, in which I was able to create some great lighting moods in heath landscapes.
But this time it's not the Ruhr area, but a few dune and heath landscapes of the Netherlands. Between September and October I was able to create some pictures of these Nature Reserves.
There were two special features: first I even came across some purple heather blossom in mid-September, which really surprised me. While the heath in the well-known Veluwezoom National Park near Posbank, for example, was already largely withered on September 8th, some heathlands around Uitrecht were purple even on September 15th.
Secondly, I had a photographic "crush" on a plant: according to my research it might be the "Juneberry". This plant belongs to the rose family and "under favorable conditions it can grow into a multi-stem, 10 meter high tree with a flattened crown" (see Wikipedia).
And these favorable conditions can be found in many heath landscape - in the Netherlands they occur in a wild form, especially on the edge of oak forests. They give the landscape a unique "savannah look" 😉
After a few exploratory tours the motives were settled - now I just needed good conditions, preferably with fog. Shortly before our trip to Slovenia these were finally predicted - so there was a little "detour" which finally paid off.
Now I wish you lots of fun with the wonderful heath landscapes of the Netherlands.
I hope you enjoyed the series!
