These photos were all taken in the Netherlands by albertdros.com. Zig Zag Zig Zag Curvy roads between trees can create an amazing effect when using long lenses to photograph them.
The Netherlands is famous for the beautiful canals in Amsterdam, the tulips and of course the windmills. The Netherlands also has some beautiful forests that you can get lost in for hours.
Forests are something different than normal landscapes. Especially for photographers, forests offer tons of different compositions even in a very small area because of the different lining and shapes of the trees.
Also, they always look different with different light. These last few days have been very misty in my country. All the people around me are complaining about it being ‘grey’ and depressing. I always tell them: ‘Take a stroll around your local forest, you’ll be amazed by the beautiful atmosphere.’ Because that’s where forests become magical: when there is fog separating the trees from each other it’s like walking in a fairytale.
But in any condition, forests always offer a great sense of peace and are relaxing to walk around in. Of course forests look very different from season to season but there is almost always something beautiful to see.
In summer the forests are nice and green. My favourite time is autumn when the trees start to get all kinds of colour. But I love winter too. When the leaves fell of the trees, all that’s left is the distinct shapes of the tree branches, often creating magical or spooky atmospheres.
It doesn’t matter how the light is. But sometimes, I’d like to forget about photographing and just enjoy the beautiful silence the forests offer. I can recommend it to everyone that has forests, small or big, around them.
Take some time to walk around for an hour or two. It’s extremely relaxing and a great stress reliever too!
Sophie and Sarah, a pair of Old English sheepdog sisters living in the Netherlands, are a couple of regular hams when it comes to posing for photos.
And that’s OK with their owner Cees Boll, an amateur photographer who loves to follow them around as they post for the camera together with the rest of their sheepdog friends.
6-year-old Sophie and 4-year-old Sarah are sisters from different litters, but they’re still inseparable.
They love to pose (especially since they sometimes receive treats for doing so), and they’ve posed in plenty of beautiful locations – from the fields of Sibculo in the Netherlands where they live to the Austrian Alps.
“The main reason I take the photos is so I can make people happy and put a smile on their face – well, Sophie and Sarah do,” Boll told the Dailymail. “In a world full of bad things, I found a way to make it a little bit brighter.
