It was good to go out again.
After a long photograpphic pause it was good to go out into the early autumn forest again yesterday morning here near Hilversum/The Netherlands.

Alas still not being in the morning mood at the moment, I again have to dig in my archive for a lovely sunrise shot. This one was taken on 2nd August 2009 on the grounds of the country-house Groeneveld/The Netherlands.

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!
