In the past years my landscape photography has been dominated by popular places: capital cities, natural reserves, and intriguing locations discovered on the internet. What I didn't realize was how much I was leaving out in the closer range. Does a place really need to be popular (and far) to be worth a photography session? This series is my answer to the question. I took my camera out to the countryside around Utrecht, sometimes a bit further, to places I've been a million times, and to others I've barely heard about. And discovered that many treasures await just around the corner. Once you learn to "see" it, it doesn't need to have a name ;) Locations: I took most of the pictures along the river Kromme Rijn (Utrecht and Bunnik municipalities); the rest was shot between Marken, Rottermeren, and Terschelling.
