Heatland in the end of summer

It is already a few weeks ago from the last post. Time for a new blog. Time flies when your busy or having fun. A Few great things happen. One of the great things was that 3 of my pictures were placed in the new Roots Agenda. And I am very proud of it. 
An other thing is my exposition of 35 photo's hanging in the GGD in Tiel. I am very happy with that.
And a picture of mine was placed as almost winner of the monthly competition black and white of roots.
And at the moment I am trying out my new tripod and lee filters which I have so long but still didn't use much. One of the things of my wish list is learning more about landscape. A different challenge. 

As always I just go out in the field and just try the stuff. And boy this is a different kind of stuff. But I love this new challenge. The first time I went to the heathland of Delhuijzen near Arnhem the end of august. Pffff it wasn't easy when the alarm was ringing in the morning but sitting in the car I was very exited. It was still dark when I got there. Fog was promised and a clear sky. And it was amazing. Parts in the heathland had long grasses which were glowing as big chains. It was shining everywhere and also the spiderwebs were lighting up everywhere. I went back the weekend after and again a great morning. These foto's are from both times.
Spiderwebs are glowing in the field

I have used different kind of lee filters. Sometimes even 3 filter together because of the very strong sun.
0.3 0.6 and 0.9 all nd gradient filters. Just trying what works best. I lot to learn still but fun to do.
And so much to learn and to pay attention to. You have to be carefull not to get drops on your filters of the long grass. I didn't noticed it right away but when I was at home and saw everything in the computer in this case I didn't mind. Well on the tree I like it but at the heathland I would have prefer it without. But that was not he case:)
Dew drops with backlight are magical.
Lots of spiders everywhere you look.
And when the great light was gone I didn't want to go home yet. So time to experiment with hard light. The fotos below were taken with a long shutterspeed and movement. You can see the heathland through the trees.
And last but not least...... some new stuff on my blog. Quotes. I love quotes. I you want to know more look on my new quote page.
Past Month I have been to the Ginkelse heide in Ede. I hope to post pictures of this in my next blog. A totally different tempeture.....
