Photographer's Note

If not for the shelducks that flew into the frame just in time, this would've been just another gloomy, late winter, sunday afternoon shot. There are two Scottish highlander cows further away in the fields, but they're barely visible. This was shot in the dunes immediately north of the city of Wassenaar. You're looking in the direction of the Northsea, which lies about 1 km away. A couple of years ago this area, Berkheide, was still farmer's land (the shack is the only remaining structure), but is now being returned to nature. Highlander cattle, roaming more or less freely through the area, are often used to graze too abundantly growing vegatation away in natural restauration projects.

Perhaps just because it's not all blue and light and colours, but I like this kind of shot.

Thanks for your critique.

Regards, Huub
