Golden hour Scheveningen

Being born and raised in the Hague, Scheveningen always had a special place in my heart. Due to the fact that my brother was confined to a wheelchair, we often went for a walk to the pier heads of the Scheveningen harbour.

Nowadays, I still like to walk there to get some fresh air and to clear my head. I love to come here with my camera on a clear day during the golden hour, because the colour schemes are so magnificent.

All pictures taken with a Panasonic Lumix GX80 camera and the Lumix 20 mm 1.7 lens. Despite the fact that this lens focuses XXL slow focus in low light conditions, it is incredibly sharp, fast and the versatile.

Indian summer in Scheveningen

A couple of weeks ago I went for a walk around the harbour of Scheveningen (Holland) in the beginning of the evening. Despite the fact that it was already September, the temperature was still around 20 degrees Celsius. The light was beautiful; it reminded me of one of my favorite paintings: “North atlantic light” by Willem de Kooning.

I decided to take some pictures with my Olympus OM-D E-M10 in combination with the standard kit lens: the Olympus Zuiko Digital 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6 ED. Although I love this camera and lens, given the limited amount of light I knew the noise level would be quite high and therefore a  faster lens or a bigger sensor camera would have been ideal. However I learned a while ago that the best camera there is, is the one you have with you…
