My 2016

December is a perfect moment to look back on the past year and the last few weeks I’ve seen a lot of lists with highlights. As usual I’ve been travelling and taking lots of photos this year, for the first time I’ve tried to make a short summary of this year’s highlights.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Seasons & State of Mind

The last weeks we have had a lot of rain, hail and even a little bit of snow, but a few times this week it was also clear spring is on the way. During this time of the year the sun is already rising when I walk to the train station in the morning and a few days ago I took this picture in the park in front of the train station.

When walking through the park in the morning I really enjoy the light, quiet and peace and these kind of skies. Besides that, it really makes me happy knowing spring is coming!

As I had a little delay in posting the photo on wordpress I already saw the next weekly photo challenge, state of mind, and this photo is also a perfect example of my emotions at the moment of taking the photo. That’s why I combine both challenges.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreamy

For this week’s challenge I choose 2 photos from the clouds and views from an airplane, as these views are always a little dreamy.

This is somewhere between Milan and Amsterdam.

Dreamy 2

This is just a few minutes after takeoff from Rotterdam, on our way to Valencia.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Between

This week’s photo challenge is all about ‘between’.

I chose to interpret the theme as a space in between something.

When I was in Berlin last weekend, we visited the holocaust monument. When I was standing between the concrete blocks I looked up into the sky and I saw the clouds and the blue sky in between of these concrete blocks , I thought this picture is perfect for this week’s challenge.
