More Aerial Images

Fall is the best time of year to fly the drone. It is quieter with less traffic on the roads and on the river and the colours are changing giving spectacular results. Eastern Ontario and the St. Lawrence River are beautiful this time of year. Today I uploaded a few of my recent drone landscape […]

Winter is Leaving

It was a relatively mild winter with only a couple of days of extreme cold in February. Still parts of the St. Lawrence River were frozen. In Brockville you could see the flow of the river pushing the ice towards the east. This looked beautiful and I could not resist to take some pictures of this […]

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all Canadians! This picture was shot on one of the hottest days of 2012. Well, for me that is. I know there were many more warm days in Ontario this Summer but unfortunately I had to return to The Netherlands again. This interior very much reminded me of all the Thanksgiving decorations […]

Dutch Sunset

Miscellaneous

I like to photograph more than insects and flowers only… Therefore I added another page to this website “miscellaneous” . Everything which is not related to macro photography will be added to this page. These may be wildlife shots, landscape photographs of places I like, or black and white images taken with my Leica M9 or […]
