This photo feb I took in the Harderbroek near Zeewolde in the Flevopolder. It is a photo of a reed plume which is common in the area. The Harderbroek is a wet nature reserve that was created after the Second World War, there is quite a lot of reed and grass in the Harderbroek. I like the light on the reed plume compared to the background. It was already evening when I took this photo, I was already on my way to the car park where my bike was parked. For this photo, I used a light telephoto lens where it creates a nice depth of field.

Welcome to my shop. My name is Gerard de Zwaan and I was born in 1983 in the Veluwe town of Harderwijk, where I still live. I started photography in 2013. My first camera was a Nikon D3200 which I still own, currently I use a Nikon D7200. Every now and then I also use 1 or 2 Nikon SB700 reportage flash units to highlight a subject. From the start I mainly do nature photography, it's mainly landscapes that I photograph, the Veluwe woods around Harderwijk being a perfect starting point for this. Occasionally I do macro photography and sometimes I photograph wildlife. Occasionally, I also do portraits of people, which can be commissioned or free work. I think my work should be seen; if it ends up on a wall somewhere in Europe like the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, France, Switzerland or Austria, I certainly don't mind.
