We had snow that morning by jchanders
We had snow that morning
We have had little snow this winter, but we did have snow last Saturday morning. Taken near Hilversum/The Netherlands.
Going out on a cold and misty morning by jchanders
Going out on a cold and misty morning
It was freezing cold on this morning here near Maartendijk/The Netherlands. But I did love the mist! There was no snow yet, just hoarfrost.
Last colours in winter wonderland by jchanders
Last colours in winter wonderland
After the snow came the sun this morning and turned the scene here near Hilversum/The Netherlands into a winter wonderland, with a few colours from autumn left.
There was ice on the lake by jchanders
There was ice on the lake
Yes, even if did not have any snow yet, it sure was a cold morning yesterday. And there was ice on the lttle forest lake, the Hilversum Wasmeer, east of Hilversum/The Netherlands
Not for you and me by jchanders
Not for you and me
It was a cold morning at the Wasmeer east of Hilversum/The Netherlands. I could do not more that look through a gate at this path, as it leads into a restzone. So it is no public walking area.


Current Residence: Hilversum/The Netherlands
Personal Quote: "There is only the trying ..." (T.S. Eliot)

The day before yesterday this gallery passed the mark of 100 000 pageviews. After nine years on DA this may not be such an extraordinary success, but I am still deeply impressed by so much positive attention. Ever so many of you have followed my photographic activities since I started here in 2005: 2086 people have been watching my gallery, and the 1515 pictures have been viewed 1 308 268 times. The picture most viewed has got more than 40 000 views. These numbers are quite unbelievable to me. Let me once again say that I am most grateful for them.

Alas there a quite a few friends who have left DA in the meantime, but to my great joy so many new ones have joined the field. And I am very happy to find so much beauty here again and again.

While I have been less active at times, this gallery now has my full commitment again. Together with my jchanders-gallery on Redbubble (where generally I post different pictures) it provides a lot of pleasure and encouragement for me and so many of you.

Fortunately my health is no longer a source of acute worrying at the moment. And so I hope to be able to share more of the beauty of nature with you in the time to come. I may travel less than in the past, but the immediate surroundings of Hilversum and some trips during the year will hopefully keep providing enough interesting material. And there is luckily still some good stuff hidden in the archive, only waiting to be rediscovered.

To embellish this journal I add the 21 most popular pictures of this gallery. Enjoy!
