Meijendel nature reserve is one of those places I keep coming back to. It is a remarkable combination of forests, dunes and beach to explore.
During my stay in the North of Portugal, I came across this beautiful chapel built on the beach. The Capela do Senhor da Pedra is a magical place.
A chapel built on a few large rocks, so close to the sea. At sunset you can almost feel the divine presence there.
I took several photos there during a marvelous sunset. The chapel is popular among tourists, but
I have visited Dubai a couple of times and everytime it presents new photo opportunities. This time I went to Riverland in Dubai Parks & Resorts.
My second excursion to the dunes of Meijendel. Early december it is cold and the trees have lost their leaves. Sunset starts early and can be very beautiful. It gives the area a whole new look.
Sometimes you don’t have to travel far for a photo. I saw nice clouds in the sky and decided to take my bike and see if I could find a good spot in my neighborhood.
During Christmas we visited the beach at Katwijk aan Zee. Although there were strong winds, I managed to make some very nice photos at sunset.
Near Zoetermeer, there is the Noord-AA lake. It provides a retreat from the busy city for many people. Especially around sunset it can be beautiful there.
The Buytenpark in Zoetermeer is a former debris dump. But it looks a lot more friendly now. There are even Scottisch Galloways grazing there.
