I’m a travel photography professional from the Netherlands. I used to get bored when I came home. Usually going to spectacular cities or beautiful nature, I couldn’t really appreciate the simple things in my own country.

The Netherlands is pretty basic. We do not have high mountains, nor do we have high skyscrapers. Our land is totally flat, our buildings are not high, and locals might think Dutch landscapes are quite boring to capture compared to the scenery in other amazing countries. But there’s a lot of places to see in the Netherlands. Like any other country, we also have things that are unique. Think of windmills and our endless flower fields. I found ways to appreciate photography in my own country and tried to capture it in beautiful photos. This is the photo series I captured over a period of around one year.

I often get jealous messages on my Facebook about people that say they want to live in my country to make these beautiful travel photos. When I ask where are they from, it’s usually from countries like India or Myanmar. I am literally stunned. These places have so much incredible nature and tourist attractions waiting to be captured. Especially as locals, these people have endless possibilities! That’s what I am trying to show here. Do not get discouraged and think your own country is ‘boring.’ It’s not! Every country has unique places. Try to find your local beauty, go out, explore!

Place called Marken. I believe these structures are there to break the ice when it is pushed towards the land to protect the houses near the lake.

Although i love the pic it looks a little unnatural to me....is it even possible to see the milky way due to light polution here in the Netherlands? I was never able to see it.even in the darker parts of the country.
