Golden op­por­tu­ni­ties

go! Platteland - - PHOTO ESSAY -

I don’t con­sider my­self a pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­pher, but it’s some­thing I en­joy and one of the many ways I ex­press my­self cre­atively. I cur­rently use three dif­fer­ent cam­eras: my Nikon D50 (with var­i­ous lenses) is the clos­est to a pro­fes­sional cam­era and al­lows me to zoom in quite closely as well as take macro pho­tos; the Canon Pow­erShot SX240 HS is a mod­ern point-and-click that I use only for land­scape or por­trait pho­tos; and my Ap­ple iPhone 5S is for panoramic pic­tures and serves as my fall­back when I don’t have one of the other two with me.

When a cam­era or my ca­pa­bil­i­ties let me down, I turn to Pho­to­shop un­til I’m happy with the fi­nal re­sult.

The pho­tos on these pages are merely a snap­shot of the many ex­cep­tional mo­ments I was lucky to wit­ness first-hand.
