With these two majestic deer statues, photographed in the woods of Palace Het Loo, I will end this little series about Palace het Loo. All these images were made in Crown Domain ‘het Loo’, Apeldoorn, the Netherlands, during a panel testing day with the Tamron 16-300 mm F3,5-6,3 DiII VC PZD zoom – organized by the Dutch photography Magazine ‘Focus’ . Hope you enjoyed checking them out!

16mm wide angle to 300 mm tele zoom … what does that look like?

Yesterday I participated in a testing panel day, organized by the Dutch photography magazine “Focus”.  A group of 12 readers was invited to try out the new, award winning Tamron 16-300 mm F3,5-6,3 DiII VC PZD zoom lens.

16 mm wide angle to 300 mm zoom in one lens… what does that look like?

Well, we went to the Royal Palace “Het Loo” in Apeldoorn, where we could experiment with this awesome lens.

Here is what it looks like:

Tiny beauty

Last Saturday, we had our monthly workday with the Bijlmerweide volunteers. For me an occasion to, afterwards, still pass by the three little experimental grasslands, where we are making an inventory of the wildflowers growing there. Although from a distance, the grasslands still look very ‘barren’, there were already quite some early spring flowers to be found… Only, one has to bend deep to find them 😉 – This little beauty, klimopereprijs (Veronica hederifolia), was found and photographed on grassland 1 – and also found on grassland 2 and 3.

Big Eyes…


Burrowing Owl (Athene cunicularia) photographed in Artis Amsterdam Zoo today – Such a warm and soft plumage, and such big eyes…  – cute little thing 🙂

Of course I made a lot more photo’s but this was one of the first ones I edited, so, liked to share it here already..
