On the road: Zeeland
After weeks of wet and cloudy weather, things started to clear up this week and I decided to head to the province of Zeeland to hopefully catch up with my photography. But as it turns out once again, nice weather doesn’t necessarily mean photogenic weather.
So far I’ve had two sunrises and two sunsets in a row with high clouds obscuring the sun on the horizon and / or clear skies overhead. The ideal situation would be the right opposite, with the sun shining brightly on the horizon, colouring the clouds above. Sure, I’ve gotten pickier over the years and (below) average light just won’t do it for me. On photography trips like this it’s either nice light or no shots! But apart from trying to be at the right place at the right time as much as you can, there is not much you can do. Landscape photography always will be a game of luck.
Yesterday night when I saw the clouds on the horizon over sea again, I decided to head for the city of Middelburg. One thing with cityscapes is that the the weather doesn’t really matter that much, not if you aim to shoot at dusk anyway. So at least I’ve got a few shots of the city. And it was good to be back in the city where I’ve spent quite some time in my childhood wandering the streets with my grandmother!
Now, with two more sunrises and two more sunsets to go on this trip, things should turn in my favour at least once, right?
