Welcome to my gallery!On this site you will find some pictures I have taken since 1988, the year I bought my first Olympus camera. You will find pictures of landscapes, people, small and big wildlife, monuments and cities of various countries, including my own country: The Netherlands. The aerial pictures from Amsterdam are very populair and used in many publications and advertisments, including the book presented to Barack Obama during his visit to The Netherlands. The older pictures are taken on Kodachrome slide film with Olympus equipment. Digital images enter from 2004.

The Utrecht - Lhasa Overland Expedition 2002 - 2004
A two-year journey by LandCruiser through Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, India, Nepal, Syria, Jordan and Lebanon. By car, a Toyota LandCruiser BJ75, we wanted to travel from our hometown Utrecht, The Netherlands, to at least Lhasa (Tibet), but the outbreak of SARS in 2003 blocked the final stretch of our route. The government of China refused to issue visas for months when we were in Kathmandu. But this was just a minor hiccup compared to falling off the mountain with our LandCruiser in Pakistan, getting frozen fingers at 6000 meters in Nepal, getting our car smashed during the riots in Islamabad and arriving in Bam the day after the devastating earthquake.
Lots of travel information and lots of pictures!
