There are so many people on Flickr who's work I admire. But there aren't that many people that tought me to actually lóók differently. Even without camera (but also with :-))


Lars van de Goor is one of those people. His work has a light, a sense of depth and a sort of 'zen'-feeling to it that I absolutely love. While I normally scan an area for animal models, I've noticed that, inspired by him, I became more and more aware of the symmetry in nature. I drive the same road to work for 12 years already, but only the other day I noticed how wonderfully the sun lit up the foggy tunnel of trees in the morning and it immediately reminded me of Lars' work.


The above shot was taken at the Veluwezoom, when the morning sun set the still bare reddish brown beeches on fire. I was stepping out of the car to shoot some Highlanders that strolled through the forest when I looked over my shoulder and got 'Larspirated' to take this shot.

Thanks Lars, for making me see!


Oh and @ Panorama Paul: sorry!! Still taken with the telezoom I'm afraid. Guess I'll never learn how to use that wide-angle. But at least it's some sort of a landscape ! :-)

    indeed inspirational, Hennie! I just adore images of roads or paths that lead who-knows-where... especially embraced by trees (my favorite of all flora). These tall soldiers seem to be at attention, standing guard along the road that leads to the mysterious light... an absolute fav!!
