A whole new world
Lens: Samyang 24mm, Pentax DFA150-450mm Camera: K-1, K-3 Photo Location: It Skoar, the Netherlands ISO: 100 Aperture: F9 
Posted By: Fries, 02-21-2021, 04:11 PM

You guy's in the US know everything about the weather turning wintery. But in Europe we also had a cold spell with some snow. It has been years in my part of the Netherlands since we had something resembling a proper winter. And it is wonderful because the places I am most familiar with for my photography on and near the coast of the Waddensea were looking rather different. Without knowing that I already had some free time lined up and took advantage of that 'new' world. These are the best results of three day's of shooting.

Cheers,

Remco

4. Light at the end


5. Islands end panorama. Made with three photo's with the K-3 and the DFA150-450mm.

Awesome pictures, @Fries! Wonderful light and interesting scenes.

I always enjoy wintry scenes -- the snowier, the better! Of course, we in Canada 'enjoy' five months of it. But, there is nothing like a sunny, crisp mid-winter day.

I feel your pain... Hang in there! As long as we as ordinary citizens keep our wits about us and the vaccination rate is rising we do stand a chance to end this as soon as possible.

Thanks Craig! I agree and remember when I was young and growing up near a big lake hearing loud bangs in the night when the ice shifted because the wind picked up. During the short, winter days we skated over the canals and lakes trough cities and villages. Everybody was on the ice it seemed. A good winter beats every hot summer in my book... Unfortunately that ratio between those has been rather unbalanced the last ten to fifteen years.

Agreed you too... I'm in the second wave apparently for "old buggers" to get their vaccination, first jag scheduled for early March.

Great shots Remco! I love the colors in the third image, particularly the beautiful blues of the snow contrasting with the oranges of the sky.

Thanks Todd! On the other side the sky turned pink. Somehow you never get those colors when it is not that cold.
