A fallen tree bars the passage in the woods around Mook. The special black and white is obtained by making the photo with infrared light. For this purpose, a filter is usually used that omits all light and only allows infrared transmission. It gives a strange but also beautiful image in black and white.
The Mookerheide of Mookerhei is a forest and heathland area east of Mook in the Dutch province of Limburg at an altitude of 50 meters, south of Nijmegen. On the Mookerheide in 1574 the Battle of the Mookerheide took place. Lodewijk van Nassau and Hendrik van Nassau, two younger brothers of William of Orange, fought here during the Eighty Years' War against the Spaniards. The forest area between Nijmegen and Mook used to be a large heath, which in its entirety was called the Mookerheide. The Heumense Schans can still be seen in the landscape at Molenhoek. Natuurmonumenten owns an area of 235 ha in the Mookerheide.
Frederik Hendrik van Oranje gathered his troops on the Mookerheide in 1629, to leave from there to 's-Hertogenbosch. A few days after his departure from the heath he started the Siege of 's-Hertogenbosch. After 1639, the Mookerschans defensive work was built on the Mookerhei, which is now a 30075 National Monument. William III of Orange left his army at the Mookerheide in the late 17th century.
