Check out this and more images from Indonesia in all their glory in my Indonesia picture gallery.

Nyepi – Bali’s Day of Silence

Nyepi – Bali’s Day of Silence

article by: at: 28th Mar 2017 under: Bali, Indonesia

New Year’s Day as most of us know it might mean a hangover or a walk with family and friends. In Bali however the New Year is welcomed in a very different way – with a day of silence. Nyepi is a Balinese “Day of Silence” which is followed from the Ngrupuk parade that takes place every eve of Nyepi Day in Bali. Ogoh-ogoh statues, that have form of mythological beings, mostly demons are built for the Ngrupuk parade and it is held to chase away malevolent forces.

Sleeklens – Through the Wood Workflow Review

article by: at: 23rd Feb 2017 under: Uncategorised

The nice folks over at Sleeklens gave me the opportunity to try out their Lightroom presets for landscape photographers which they call “Through the woods”. Not actually a huge fan of presets I gave it a try and here is my review and fife cents on those. First surprise was actually not only to find the Through The Woods Presets where one would expect them, in the presets section in the Lightroom develop module, but also you will find a nice array of those presets in your adjustment brushes and gradient filters. A nice touch of the presets in the […]

Dani’s children in Nepal – Update January 2017

I know, updates of what is going on with my kids in Nepal are spread far apart. Life has been throwing a lot on me the entire last year and I have been tied up with so many things that it was hard to keep contact. The fact that internet access is difficult, to almost impossible, for them or their mother certainly doesn’t make it more easy. It is thanks to an office worker at the school that every now and than I get some pictures and it is also him who does send me their progress cards. Anyway, and to […]

Calima – Lanzarote

Calima – Lanzarote

article by: at: 14th Dec 2016 under: Lanzarote

“Calima” they call in Lanzarote those strong, hot winds blowing all the way from African dessert over the ocean and way past the Canary Islands. Fine particles of desert sand, suspended in the air cover the sky that, during sunset, bathes the landscape in a bright, orange glow. Visit my Lanzarote gallery for more pictures of this unique and beautiful island.

Bali Raw & Unfiltered

Bali Raw & Unfiltered

“Raw” (of an emotion or quality) Strong and undisguised, frank and realistic in the depiction of unpleasant facts or situations. (image format) Widely known among professional photographers a RAW image refers to a picture that contains data that have not been compressed, encrypted or processed in any manner. When it comes to photography the processing of an image actually already starts before you make it and one of the most important decisions in this process is what or what not to include in the picture you take. A fact that has become more and more apparent to me ever since I live in Bali.  As a […]

Dani’s children in Nepal – Update November 2015

Nepal and its people has been going through a hard year. Even more then the usual… Earlier this year the country has been devastated by a severe earthquake and many, many people lost the little they had. The area where the children are living fortunately hasn’t been effected directly however the extreme situation in Nepal has become even more difficult after many roads have been destroyed and supplies are even more rare then before. Unfortunately in October the school has informed me too that Amit has been taken out from school by his father who suddenly appeared out of the […]

Balmy summer nights

article by: at: 21st Jun 2012 under: Lanzarote

It has been a while I wanted to spend a night up high in Lanzarote, looking down at our neighbor island La Graciosa. Well yesterday all the conditions fell into place and I packed quickly some stuff for the night and my camera and off I went. I found a wonderful little cave right in the wall of the almost 400 meter high cliffs. The evening was perfect. Cloudless sky, a beautiful warm sun setting at the horizon and not a gust of wind. As the last seagull went to sleep the silence was extraordinary. Just a few hundred meters […]
