As the weather report rolled in yesterday, I got really excited to hear snow was expected. I made the necessary preparations and packed my gear. Not far from here, there is a nature reserve which houses a herd of wisents; a breed of European bisons that almost were hunted to extinction early 20th century until only 30 were left, all in captivity in zoos. Successful breeding programs get this species back on their feet and numbers are growing again. Photographing one is something that's on my list for quite a while, especially in snow conditions. This is why I was so thrilled to hear the weather report. I arrived shortly before sunrise at the reserve and started to hike. Surprisingly, it didn't take me very long to spot this species, but the feeling was amazing. What an impressive, overwhelming animal. I enjoyed observing it for some time and picked up my camera to make some shots. At 10.00, snow started coming down and it came down hard. This was the moment I have been waiting for. However, the wisent decided to go for a walk back to the herd. Unfortunately, that was in a restricted part of the nature reserve. Now I'm not the type of person that breaks rules and it was very hard for me to see it walk away, right at the time all elements were in place for the image I had in mind. I stood there, with my camera in my hand, looking to the herd as they disappeared in the distance. . Looking at the imagex it's almost hard to realise the entire area would be covered in a layer of fresh snow only a few minutes later. . Although I didn't bring back the image I had in mind, it was a very satisfying experience and I am happy with the images I did manage to take. . . . . . @cameranu_nl . #cameranu #cameranu_nl #zoomnl #dutch_connextion #getoutside #wildlife #photographylovers #natuurfotografie #wildlifephotography #instaphotography #instanetherlands #exploremore #super_holland #ig_shutterbugs #photographyislife #canonphotographer #theoutbound #getoutdoors #thegreatoutdoors #igersholland #photographysouls #bestdutch #igholland #pnw #photographers #wildlife_perfection #igholland #staatsbosbeheer_feautureme

Wandering through streets and alleys exploring Georgetown, we kind of tried to get off the beaten track. Passing some houses we found this jetty housing a little alter at the end in the red building you see in the picture. . Personally I like to go the opposite direction all the tourists go. This is where I find the most exciting places. So put away your guide book, open your eyes and go explore the unknown πŸ˜…πŸ‘ . . . . . @cameranu_nl . #cameranu #cameranu_nl #zoomnl #dutch_connextion #getoutside #tbt #photographylovers #natuurfotografie #instamood #instaphotography #exploremore #ig_shutterbugs #photographyislife #canonphotographer #theoutbound #getoutdoors #thegreatoutdoors #igersholland #photographysouls @ns_online #igholland #pnw #photographers #igholland at Penang, Malaysia

We had a great time during a short trip to Malaysia this week with @stephanodiederichi. Have seen some great places and new locations in Kuala Lumpur and Georgetown. . More images follow soon! . P.s. anyone who is currently in the Austrian Alps? Still undecided if I need to suspend my trip due to the massive amount of snow that came down last week. Please let me know :) . . . . @cameranu_nl . #cameranu #cameranu_nl #zoomnl #dutch_connextion #getoutside #tbt #photographylovers #natuurfotografie #instamood #instaphotography #exploremore #ig_shutterbugs #photographyislife #canonphotographer #theoutbound #getoutdoors #thegreatoutdoors #igersholland #photographysouls @ns_online #igholland #pnw #photographers #igholland

As we walked through the forest, following the rail tracks, snow started falling down more and more, creating a fresh, white blanked over the landscape. No sound was heard, except for the occasional snow falling from a tree branch. That was until a whistle was blown and this train came running down the hill, approaching Schierke station on its way back from the mountain top. . . . . . @cameranu_nl . #cameranu #cameranu_nl #zoomnl #dutch_connextion #getoutside #tbt #photographylovers #natuurfotografie #instamood #instaphotography #exploremore #ig_shutterbugs #photographyislife #canonphotographer #theoutbound #getoutdoors #thegreatoutdoors #igersholland #photographysouls @ns_online #igholland #pnw #photographers #igholland

What a wonderful experience; driving through Phong Nha, Vietnam, by motorcycle. Dense jungle passing left and right, high peaking mountains in front. Along the way you'll find amazing places to stop to enjoy nature and do some reflection. . . . . . #cameranu #cameranunl #zoomnl #dutch_connextion #getoutside #photographylovers #getoutdoors #thegreatoutdoors #ig_shutterbugs . . #optoutside #rei1440project #exploremore #outdoorlife #camping #hike #hiking #outdoors #outdoor #camp

How do you spend your daily commute? . I love how people can make themselves comfortable and create their own personal space in public transport. This man made me appreciate the commute as he seems so calm and peaceful. . . . . . @cameranu_nl . #cameranu #cameranu_nl #zoomnl #dutch_connextion #getoutside #tbt #photographylovers #natuurfotografie #instamood #instaphotography #exploremore #ig_shutterbugs #photographyislife #canonphotographer #theoutbound #getoutdoors #thegreatoutdoors #igersholland #photographysouls #bestdutch #igholland #pnw #photographersΒ  #igholland at Amsterdam, Netherlands

As winter slowly settles in, I think back to the mild warm climate over in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam. What an incredible experience to sail through such a unique environment. . . . . . @cameranu_nl . #cameranu #cameranu_nl #zoomnl #dutch_connextion #getoutside #tbt #photographylovers #natuurfotografie #instamood #instaphotography #exploremore #ig_shutterbugs #photographyislife #canonphotographer #theoutbound #getoutdoors #thegreatoutdoors #igersholland #photographysouls #bestdutch #igholland #pnw #photographers #igholland at Ha Long Bay

An image of a slumbering red panda (ailurus fulgens) at @artis_amsterdam_royal_zoo I took last summer, definately one of my all-time favourites. Getting sleepy everytime I look at it. πŸŒΏπŸ»πŸ’€πŸƒ . Currently I'm re-touching some of my most favourite images, making some adjustments in lighting but most importantly displaying them in their true dimensions instead of the 1x1 Instagram default. I think this does more justice to the images. Let me know what you think about it :) . . . . . @cameranu_nl . #cameranu #cameranu_nl #zoomnl #dutch_connextion #getoutside #wildlife #photographylovers #natuurfotografie #wildlifephotography #instaphotography #instanetherlands #super_holland #ig_shutterbugs #photographyislife #canonphotographer #getoutdoors #thegreatoutdoors #igersholland #photographysouls #bestdutch #igholland #pnw #photographers #wildlife_perfection #igholland #artisamsterdam at ARTIS

Throwback Tuesday; this morning is waaay to cold. So here I am, warm at home, reminding the fantastic time I had in Indonesia and the welcome relief of the warm climate the drizzle of this waterfall brought to me. . . . . . @cameranu_nl . #cameranu #cameranu_nl #zoomnl #dutch_connextion #getoutside #tbt #photographylovers #natuurfotografie #instamood #instaphotography #exploremore #ig_shutterbugs #photographyislife #canonphotographer #theoutbound #getoutdoors #thegreatoutdoors #igersholland #photographysouls #bestdutch #igholland #pnw #photographers #igholland at Indonesia

While having a great hillside barbeque dinner I noticed this cloud over 'Massif du Chablais', catching the last light of the day, scattering beautiful colours. . . . . . I captured this image hand-held. Unfortunately I didn't bring a tripod on this trip because I was traveling with handbagage only, and a tripod might cause some trouble at security. Because of this I had to work with a very high ISO to get my shutter as fast as possible, since I was using a 200mm lens with no IS. After quite a lot of post-processing I had this image which is quite presentable here on IG, but not suitable for printing. . . . . . @cameranu_nl @canonnederland . #cameranu #cameranu_nl #zoomnl #dutch_connextion #getoutside #alps #feelthealps #wanderlust #earthfocus #roamers #mountain #landscapephotography #earthoutdoors #ourplanetdaily at Nyon, Switzerland

Today I had a great day out in the dunes, enjoying the warm after-summer sun as it was setting, when I spotted this deer. It didn't seem to bother my presence when I sneaked up to him to make this image. . . . . . @cameranu_nl @canonnederland . #cameranu #cameranu_nl #zoomnl #dutch_connextion #getoutside #wildlife #photographylovers #optoutside #wildlifephotography #instaphotography #getoutstayout #exploremore #buitenisnooitverweg #ig_shutterbugs #photographyislife #keepitwild #theoutbound #getoutdoors #thegreatoutdoors #outdoors #photographysouls #hike #capture #pnw #wild #photographers #wildlife_perfection #exposure #outdoorlife
