During the school holiday we went for a week to Drenthe, we hired a nice cabin in the woods and were relaxing for a while with friends and family. My six year old daughter had the time of her life and was really eager to go on photo safari with dad. Of course it was not a typical vacation as we normally do but still we had a lot of photo opportunities in our wonderful country. We were surrounded by beautiful nature and very nice scenery. One morning we (me and my daughter) got up before sunrise and we went to the heath to shoot some deer (with our cameras of course). We don not spot any of them, all we encountered were sheep, lots of them. But at the end it was still a great adventure to walk to the big spotting tower and have breakfast in the nature. We also went on several trips with the forester and learned a lot about all the plants and wildlife. Drenthe has a beautiful nature reserve and is worth visiting. But I guess you need to know where and when to be there the find the deer.
During our water wildlife excursion with the forester we had some rain but hey we were both carrying waterproof cameras and or cases so we still had lots of fun. And once back at the cabin there was mom to serve us a warm drink and dry clothes.
I also experimented with making underwater shots in the swimming pool. And I am more then pleased with them, there will be another post on them later on. On on top of all that we did some ‘semi’ urban exploring when we found an abandoned garage that still had all the old cars in it. After we talked to the owner we were allowed to get in there and shoot some nice shots. But this I will show you as well in another post.
