A little bit of winter

We've seen a couple of wintry days over the last few weeks in The Netherlands. Here are a few landscapes of the IJssel river and Veluwe nature reserve in cold conditions.

Winter is definitely on its way. Cold freezing morning landscapes around the Zwartendijk in de IJsseldelta region near my hometown Kampen.

Early morning Autumn fog

Driving home last night it was the fields were already covered in a thick layer of fog. So this morning I decided to go out and see if there would still be some fog around during sunrise. I witnessed a foggy sunrise in the Scherenwelle nature reserve near the village of Wilsum on the river IJssel. One of the nice things about fog, besides adding an almost mystical atmosphere, is that it removes unwanted busy backgrounds in your pictures. Here are a few pics from this morning.
