Finally managed to combine some work with some fun. After visiting a customer in the North part of Holland I headed for the small town of Marken to shoot the lighthouse. We sailed past this one last year and it was on my "to-shoot" list for a while.
The weather was gray, rainy and no sun to be seen, even the guy living in the lighthouse told me that I was crazy shooting in these conditions. After a 30 min. walk to this location, I managed to get a couple of decent shots, more to follow in the next week.
Next stop: Den Haag, NL! ;-)
