Early and foggy morning

This morning I was up early and saw that it was foggy out. Thats a situation perfect for some moody morning shots. Not something I wanted to miss. It has been a while since I've done a early morning session with fog. So out we went! I spotted this field with some horses. Now I am not a big horse fan, lets say I respect them a lot. Well... actually I was afraid of them when I was younger. They are so big and strong. I always had mad respect for these animals. But now I am kind of cool with them. So I walked up to two very curious and friendly horses and just hung out with them for a bit. That was actually pretty nice. Check out the photo's below!

Sunrise at the Boschmolenplas

This past weekend I had one of those nights again, where I couldn't get any sleep at night. My mind just keeps racing. So what I needed was to go out, that always makes me calm and takes away a bit from all the things that are going on in my head haha. 6 am and I am at this lake. Catching the sunrise, there's not much more to the story! I loved going out, and after coming back I had a little nap and slept like a baby. So there you go, this shows once more that clearing your head in nature is a very nice thing to be able to do.

Have a look at the shots right here, and I also shot a video for this trip. Check it out!
(Yes I notice how I often I mention how tired I am in this video, forgive me, I was so knackered)

Check out the video for this photo session right here, and remember to subscribe on youtube to keep up with my recent adventures and more.

El Peñon de Ifach, Spain

Last year in September we went to Spain with the family (again, haha) just to have a good time together, and enjoying Spain basically. We went to Moraira, a nice and little coastal town that is located on the Costa Blanca strip. Back in 2011 we basically did the same trip, stayed in the same town and accommodation and sort of had a similar holiday. It was that good in 2011 that we decided to do it all over again.

A short drive from Moraira is Calpe, a little bit bigger, more tourism, more high rises and sandy beaches. Just as you would imagine the Spanish coast would be. But also home to a quite known landmark, the El Peñon de Ifach. It basically is a giant rock sitting on the shore next to the town. In the old times the rock was a strategic lookout point for locals providing them with perfect views of the sea and the surrounding towns. 

It is the smallest nature park in Spain, perhaps even in Europe. But when you are standing at its foot it is quite intimidating. It is 332m tall, and it is also home to over 300 species of animals and numerous rare plants. The rock has this awesome hike trail that takes you all the way up to the top. Its quite a heavy and tricky climb to get to the highest point. But the views are amazing. Have a look at these pics below, stunning views right?

 

Goodmorning

This morning I was up early, early enough to go out and catch the sunrise. I don't have to go far for a nice location. My own hometown has a lot of beautiful places that are within walking distance of my house. Here's some of the shots I took this morning. Have a nice Wednesday all!
