Limbright Fields At Sunrise

From the archive: February 14. 2017

I took this photo while cycling around Limbright.

Actually I was heading to the local woods for a morning ride on my mountain bike.

I picked this place for it’s leading lines that the rails created.

It was bitterly cold as you can imagine being out in the fields in the middle of February.

There was morning frost on the ground that added to the photo and the weather was clear.

What you see in the photo is actually a place about 1km behind the Limbricht Castle.

Open fields that stretch into the distance.

Great for sunrise photography!

This Lucky Shot Makes Me Go Back To Macro Photography

Yesterday I was visiting some of the gardens in Sittard and had my Sony 100mm / 2.8 with me and while I was shooting the flowers this bee flew into my shot.

To be honest I haven’t even seen it right there because it happened so fast.

And it was in the middle of the day when the Sun is too bright. I simply couldn’t see anything on the screen.

Looking through the viewfinder wasn’t an option because of the restricted space I had.

Anyway…

Later, when I scrolled through the photos I saw it.

It got me by surprise.

It was sharp and the bee in focus.

Luckily I had my settings right and could freeze the action.

One of those lucky days I would say…

Anyway…

Keep shooting…

…and have a lot of fun.

Best,

Red De Tuinen – Save Sittard’s Gardens

When was the last time you’ve visited any of the secret gardens in Sittard? If you haven’t for a while then now it’s the time because soon some of them according to the plan of the city hall should get destroyed by the end of the October.

If we don’t do anything about it, then the only time you’ll enjoy these gardens will be from the photos like the one above.

And I’m not even exaggerating…

I wish I was, but I’m not…

This is for real!

If we don’t do anything about it right now, then we can literally say goodbye to these Sittard gardens.

The funny thing is that there isn’t even a solid explanation why it should be taken down.

Right now there are hundreds of flowers feeding over 125 000 bees.

There are local birds about to loose their home.

These gardens hold big population of insects necessary for birds to survive…

Then, you have the historic value of these gardens originating from the second half of the 17th century.

…and way more.

This is just a fraction of the reasons why these gardens should not be destroyed.

Anyway…

If you want to get involved and save these gardens, then click the link below and sign up for the petition.
