Intro
Mijn naam is Erik van Amstel. Geboren in Velsen (Noord-Holland) op 01-10-1952. Mijn professie was en is nog steeds (met een pauze van 5 jaar) leraar lichamelijke opvoeding. Tijdens vakanties was ik altijd al bezig met fotograferen en videofilmen. Mijn liefde voor de natuur, die ik in mijn vrije tijd op verschillende manieren tegemoet treed - wandelend, mountainbikend, skeelerend en skieŽnd - wordt alleen maar groter en de behoefte om de schoonheid daarvan vast te leggen groeit navenant. Momenteel gebruik ik een digitale camera: de Canon PowerShot A85. Mijn scala aan foto's wordt steeds groter en elk moment als ik er op uittrek neem ik mijn camera mee. Met name natuurfoto's in de omgeving van Alphen en tijdens wandelingen en mountainbiketochten op de Veluwe en elders in Nederland maken deel uit van mijn digitale verzameling, waarvan ik langzamerhand eenieder deelgenoot hoop te maken. Ik hoop dat er veel mensen zijn die mij de juiste aanwijzingen kunnen geven om mijn foto's te verbeteren en ik zal op mijn beurt proberen andere foto's van opbouwende kritiek te voorzien.

Intro-update 27 mei 2005:

I want to thank everyone who has visited my gallery so far. I must admit that I learned a lot already of the critiques I recieved. Also I get more experienced in working with photoshop. In the beginning not all my pictures were very sharp or the colours were vague. Now I know how to solve those little problems. I experienced too that a camera with better lenses make better pictures of course. Technically that is, but POV and compo are very important too.
Keep giving me your critiques and I'll do the same. Lots of succes everybody and CU on TE.

P.S. I also changed my profilephoto. Now you have a more realistic idea of my age and other hobby. Hence my username. CU, Erik

Update 7th august '05:
I was a few days away on vacation in Belgium and the south of the Netherlands. In the meantime my son Boy designed me a website. The site will be online now and I'll show you there some more pictures of mine. This is a link to skeelerik
There are a few actionshots of mountainbiking in the woods of the Brabantse Kempen.
CU online, Erik

I just read the intro of my sons girlfriend. She sees me already as her future father in law. I'm honored already. She has some nice shots on TL on this adress: http://www.treklens.com/members/Wishes/

Intro-update 25th of October 2006

Now the roads are getting wet from rain and mist I have to stop my inline skating. So I will find more time to make pictures. I hope to share a lot of my shots with you.
Thanks for visiting and I hope to get your critiques and comment to keep on learning and improving my skills.
