This year a swan was a common theme in my life

W I N T E R

Quite often when I'm out in nature to shoot, a swan appears in my picture. I love them! I am not the only one I presume. Instagram featured my picture on their homepage.

Frozen

Such a cold winter we had. Even the IJsselmeer was frozen. Which is quite rare...

I always wanted to shoot the church and shipwreck at Wierum, the Frisian village where my roots lie. But when I finally managed it, things went wrong. Approaching the shipwreck one step too close, my boot got stuck in the mud and I lost my balance. The result: I fell flat on my face, I was covered in murky, slimy silt from head to toe... It got even worse when I had to crawl my way back to the shore. I was a mud monster!
