During our holiday in 2017 in Austria I discovered a female wasp spider sitting in her web and took the opportunity to take multiple macro photos during the day of the spider and it’s impressive egg sac.
Taking macro photos from a spider is not difficult if there is no wind on a sunny day. Spiders are everywhere and we normally disregard them (ok, except your wife/girlfriend …). Zooming in on a spider will reveal interesting details normally not seen.
Taking macro photos from a honey bee or a bumblebee is not that difficult under a bright sun allowing a fast shutter speed with a small aperture to create a large field of depth. These insects can be encountered everywhere, such as in the garden or nearby nurseries having a lot of flowers
Photographing butterflies from nearby with a macro lens can be difficult as they are seldom sitting quiet on a flower or piece of fruit. Best place is normally our garden on a hot sunny day, but we also encounter them during our hikes in the Netherlands or summer holidays in Austria, Italy and Switzerland.
During our holiday in 2011 we made a roadtrip through a part of the Dolomites in Italy. These mountains are visually completely different from the mountains in the Alps as can be seen for example in Austria. Alongside the Sella pass road the mountain Langkofel can be seen.

Over time we made some images from the city Groningen located in the Netherlands. The city has a well known university and as such a lot of students are living in the city using their main transport vehicle; the bicycle. The buildings in the city are a mix of old and modern architecture.
Salzwedel is a town in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany with a very nice historic part having numerous half-timbered houses (some of them from the Middle Ages). The historic city is partly encompassed by the historic city wall and town gates.
The small village Trittenheim in Germany is situated alongside the river Moselle and surrounded by numerous vineyards. Trittenheim is an ideal starting point for trips alongside the Moselle and gives opportunity to take landscape photographs, but also from Roman monuments in the nearby city Trier.
