Award-winning German photographer Tom Hegen recently took to the skies above The Netherlands at night and capturing striking photos of massive greenhouses illuminated in the landscapes below. The newly-published work is titled "The Greenhouse Series."

Photos of Golden Autumn in the Netherlands

This autumn has been exceptionally beautiful in the Netherlands. Because of the interesting climate earlier this year with the extreme droughts we experienced, the trees are extremely colorful during the autumn period of this year. Trees that normally wouldn’t even turn yellow or reddish are now beautifully gold.

Photos of Dutch Heather Landscapes Through the Seasons

A few years ago, I published my (still very popular) heather series titled Purple Dream that consisted of images that portrayed the Dutch heather landscapes in August when everything turns purple. But the heather is not only beautiful when it's purple -- it's interesting all year round.

Photos of Dutch Tulips from the Ground and Sky

As a travel and landscape photographer, being on the road for a lot of time is nice, but I always try to be home during the tulip season. This isn’t always easy as the exact timing of the blooming is always quite random.

I Photographed Cherry Blossoms… in Amsterdam

I've been seeing lots of cherry blossom photos from many friends who are visiting Japan or Korea for their beautiful and famous cherry blossoms. I’m sitting here at home in the Netherlands for a change and figured I’d show how I don’t need to travel halfway across the globe to get these shots.

Capturing a Snowy Day in Amsterdam

I can't remember seeing so much snow in our Dutch capital city of Amsterdam before. Yesterday afternoon, snow started falling out of the sky for hours and hours without stopping. Since I was already in Amsterdam, I took the opportunity of trying to document the atmosphere. The scene lasted for only a few hours before it started to rain in the evening.

Where and How to Shoot Tulips in The Netherlands

Spring came early this year. Almost one month earlier than last year in fact. The tulips in my country are currently in full-bloom, and now is the best time to see and photograph them. As a local and sort of "known" Dutch landscape photographer, I get bombarded with questions on where to find them via social media. I figured it would be easy to write a quick guide for all of you ‘tourists.'

Watch a Trained Police Eagle Take Down a Drone

Shady drone pilots take note: the eagles are coming for you. Dutch police began training eagles to take down illegal drones at the beginning of 2016. Now, eight months later, it's time to demonstrate how well these trained eagles do their job.

These Street Portraits Were Shot From Below with an Ultra-Wide 8mm Lens

Street photographer Willem Jonkers often hits the streets of Rotterdam in the Netherlands with an ultra-wide-angle 8mm fisheye lens. He then approaches strangers and gets not only close, but low -- really low.

His collection of ultra-low, ultra-wide street portraits show a "Gulliver" effect that makes his subjects look like enormous giants towering over each scene.

Dutch Police Helicopter Snaps Aerial Wedding Photos for Couple While Flying By

One couple in The Netherlands received some unexpected wedding photos from an unofficial photographer this past weekend. A helicopter of the country's National Police Corps was flying by a field of flowers when it spotted the couple in the midst of a wedding photo shoot. The crew managed to snap some beautiful aerial shots of the couple.

Interview with Dutch Photographer Erwin Olaf

Erwin Olaf has been one of the top advertising and people photographers in the world for over twenty-five years. His current show Waiting: Selections from Erwin Olaf: Volume I & II is being exhibited at the Hasted Kraeutler Gallery in New York. While continuing to do innovative commercial work, he has increasingly become focused on his personal work. I had a recent opportunity to ask about his career and future artistic ambitions.

Dutch Girl Fakes a 5-Week Vacation to South East Asia by Posting Phoney Photos to Facebook

Dutch graphic design student Zilla van den Born recently conducted an interesting experiment on the power of phoney and misleading photos on social media. For five weeks, Zilla tricked her family and Facebook friends into thinking that she was on a long and exciting vacation through South East Asia. In reality, she never even set foot outside of her home city of Amsterdam.
