A perfect day on a beach

Dunes and the beach, two elements I really enjoy. Not necessarily to just lie there baking in the sun on a big towel while getting sand in your sandwich. I’d rather walk along the beach, feeling the wind gush against my body, while getting some sort of free face scrub. I like it warm, butContinue reading “A perfect day on a beach”

Tidal flats

A few more photos from the beautiful island of Vlieland. During my hike the tide was out and these tidal flats were revealed. At other times of the day the boats would be rocking in the water, but now they were parked in the mud flats. It’s quite spectacular to see how many different habitatsContinue reading “Tidal flats”

Is this made of…wooood?

The island of Vlieland, a small island jam-packed with amazing scenery, ranging from beach to dunes to a beautiful forest with soft tracks and heaps of tall trees. It was lovely exploring the forest with no set plan in mind. Just wandering around, enjoying the peace and quiet. When I take photographs, I find compositionContinue reading “Is this made of…wooood?”

Come closer

Dramatic skies, I love them! Sunday early in the evening on an August day, the island of Vlieland beckoned us for a visit to the beach. The others went for a swim, I took in this majestic interplay of clouds, colour and light. In the distance you can see some rain showers pouring down. Luckily,Continue reading “Come closer”

Waving in the wind

It’s funny, when I travel I like taking photos of flags (like in Sweden or Canada), but I’ve never taken a photo like that of the Dutch flag. When I was on Vlieland, I didn’t have a preset idea or a plan as to what kind of photos I would be taking. As I wasContinue reading “Waving in the wind”

Island ingredients: donkeys, horses, goats and seagulls

Vlieland has beautiful nature, but there are also plenty of animals. I love animals, so I thought I’d do a special post about the animals I saw on the island! On my first hike on the island, I first saw two very cute donkeys who were grazing on a field near the lighthouse. I satContinue reading “Island ingredients: donkeys, horses, goats and seagulls”

Water’s edge

I love harbours. I don’t know what it is, but I love the rows of boats, the sense of adventure, the water’s edge. I wish I could hop on a boat and sail away on an adventure! During my weekend away on the Dutch island of Vlieland, I walked around the harbour area and enjoyed theContinue reading “Water’s edge”

Lines on the horizon

It only makes sense that there are so many seagulls on an island. While they’re not my favourite birds, they are simply part of any coastal area in the country. Many were having a rest on shore near the helicopter platform. Perhaps taking a break from flying into strong winds? 😉
