WINTER IN EXTREMADURA

Last Christmas, after seven years, we visited Extremadura once more. It still is one of Europe's nature area's with high values. Despite having been there several times in the past, I was never able to photograph iconic species like Black Vulture, Spanish Imperial Eagle and the elusive Bonelli's Eagle. That is why I made contact with Photo-Raptors, based in the Sierra de San Pedro, east of the city of Cáceres. This little organisation has several hides on private land in this mountain range.

AUTUMN 2013: LARGER ITEMS

In comparison with the subjects in my first autumn 2013 blog, these items are a bit bigger, ranging from birds to forest landscapes with autumn colors. During this autumn birdwatchers and twitchers from Holland and neighbouring countries were focused on a beautiful vagrant: the Hawk Owl (Surnia ulula). This fantastic owl from the boreal forests stayed for quite a while in the city of Zwolle. Thousands and thousands of pictures were made of this bird. That is why i conclude the event with a sort of painting (made by using PS ,from a picture I took in Zwolle beginning of December:

ICELAND 3: LANDSCAPES

 DSC3460

This is the last part of my Iceland Review and it is all about the famous and spectaculair landscapes of Landmannalaugar. We've been camping there for three days and the weather was horrible half of the time, rain and grey. But even that is sometimes good for taking landscape pictures. On the other hand we were quite lucky: heavy overcast with some sunny spells is a guarantee for fantastic light.

ICELAND 2: ARCTIC FOX

Another highlight on Iceland was, by all means, our visit to the remote peninsula in the outer Nort West part of the country, called: Hornstrandir. We departed the town of Isafjordur by fast boat to a landing place called Hornvik. We'd been there in 2006 and knew that it is a very good place for observing Arctic Fox. For many years hunting is banned at Hornstrandir and, because of that, Arctic Fox is, by far, not as shy as in other parts of Iceland.
