I know it’s only the 22nd of February, but Spring is coming! Here’s my first flower picture of the year, taken a few days ago 🙂
(In case it’s not obvious, I don’t own a macro lens anymore and I’m not fully familiar with my new camera but I’m learning as I go along!)
When the weather isn’t good for taking photographs, go outside and take some anyway 😉
Have a nice weekend everyone!
Some random, simple pictures of everyday things-

(5) “Welcome to my home(town)”
It’s 10 °C and grey here in Amsterdam, not the most inspiring weather for playing around with my new Fuji.. I’m waiting for frost and snow, but in the meantime here’s a shot of dew instead.
Happy 3rd Advent everyone!
I photographed a grey heron (Ardea cinerea) but forgot to change the camera settings so I accidentally used the ones from my previous photo shoot. I adjusted it and took some more shots but when I reviewed the images later, I found that I actually like this one. The (wrong) settings created a more dramatic look, and I also left it uncropped. Lesson learned: It’s good to experiment and I might make this mistake on purpose in the future. 😉
The Bearded reedling (Panurus biarmicus) is one of my favourite birds, and I was lucky to encounter a flock a couple of days ago!
I don’t have a long zoom lens, so these images are heavily cropped (~30% of the original image!) though still reasonably sharp so I’m pretty pleased with the outcome.
A sweet moment between mother and child ❤
