Tongariro National Park
Welcome to Noarderljocht.....
Noarderljocht (Northern Light) presents a selecion of my latest photographs. Although my trusty Nikon F3 has been a travel mate for many many years, the photographs on this site are all product of the digital era. Inevitably the mighty 'F' has become a 'D'.
The Nikons are never far away and are always within reach on journeys through Scotland and New Zealand. These two exceptional countries, together with my own Fryslân, are a true photographer's paradise.
Noarderljocht features subjects, ranging from historic aeroplanes to vulcanoes. The latest photo reports are from Heligoland where we met the gannets nesting high on the red sandstone cliffs.
Latest New Zealand photos, include Whakaari (The White Island) and the snow covered volcanoes of the Tongariro.
Photographs from the other side of the Tasman: Sydney's Fish Market.
Continueing on the 'polar theme': The Spitsbergen (Svalbard) expedition in August 2017. For the summer of 2018 it was back in Scotland: Kintyre, Mull, Iona and Staffa. Our base for the summer of 2019 will be Norway's Helgeland.
Have a look at the amazing glass art of Dale Chihuly in the Groningen Museum.
Enjoy Noarderljocht .......!
