Best beaches in the world

Spring only lasted shortly here in The Netherlands as it quickly turned into full on summer. The colors are boosting, the evenings last longer, the terraces are full again and the air is warmer while the people walk slower. As we are getting ready to think about our summer holidays, here are some inspirational best beaches – in no particular order – to dream away on and forget about that day job that you have in another life…

Springtime… Let it Blossom.

Spring is in the air again! The days are slowly getting longer, birds welcome you in the early morning and the first colors are coming back from their wintersleep. The air is still fresh but it is soft and you can smell the change that is on it’s way. In a short while the first warm rays of sunshine will appear through the windows. You will want to be outside and enjoy the sun, the flowers and have a drink on a terrace. In short: it is Spring. And it is time to Blossom.

Photography in color: White

Smell the cinnamon and the pine. The hot chocolate with the rum. The winter has officially started. It’s nearly Christmas time and so it is warm inside, but outside it’s cold. The snow comes falling out of the sky and colors our world white. Hence this time for another landscape-photography in color. In -mostly- white this time… It’s Winter Wonderland.

Warm-up tip: a recipe for a truly photogenic white-hot-chocolate recipe to enjoy while you are looking through the pictures. You will be warm in a minute. (Add rum if needed…)

1 1/2 cups (350 ml.) milk
3 ounces (90 grms.) of white chocolate – chopped
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract>
Some like a tablespoon of coffee or espresso powder added
For garnish: cocoa powder (or frosted sugar to keep the white-trend going)
Last but not least, add whipped cream

Happy Holidays!

Autumn

The morning air is crisp and fresh. You can smell the upcoming winter and feel it in your lungs. The sun does come out every now and then, if not hidden behind a large layer of fog. The skies vary from end-of-summer-blue to start-of-winter-grey. Color changes from blue and green to red, yellow and brown. Mushrooms appear, the smell of cinnamon suddenly is appealing again. The parks and forests smell wonderful after one of those thunderstorms. We stay indoors, light the first evening candles and don’t know what to wear: clothes are too warm for winter and too cold for summer… Must mean that Autumn is here. And it gives us a beautiful scenery.

Mist-erious

Every season has it’s charm i guess.
I happen too love Spring and Autumn the best – but that’s just me. One reason why is the cool mornings where it cooled off from the day before so it covers up the land with a thick layer of mist. Everything suddenly looks soft and blurry… With the right light and sometimes the help of a little colourboost in photoshop  – Mist is a very nice ingredient for some stunning looking pictures.
