With this photo I try to show the state of a lot of Dutch nature in a nice way.
On the one hand it is very beautiful and it grows, but on the other hand it acidifies, the heath grasses and trees die because of the excess of ammonia (nitrogen) and desiccation (sinking groundwater). This concerns me and I see it decaying before my eyes.
The proceeds from this photo will go to Stichting Natuurmonumenten - through which this area is managed.

Jeroen Lagerwerf is a nature and landscape photographer from the small town of Leuth in Gelderland. His work is usually characterized by contrasting colours, a different representation of our landscape and mystical tension. His predilection for the night is also striking. Both in nature and in urban areas.
