    Bronze in Nature/Aerial

During descent into Luxembourg, we were navigating through a maze of enormous mountains of moist, water and ice. Recent heavy weather over Europe created some massive, almost un-European, convective clouds that resulted in major thunderstorms and squall lines moving over Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and The Netherlands.

Born and raised in The Netherlands in 1983, I was fascinated by natural light in all its forms since a young age. Now working as a pilot, flying all over the world, I always have my camera with me to immortalize the world around me, be it from the cockpit or at destinations that I am fortunate to visit. Capturing moments that have never been seen before and will never be seen again with eye for light, composition and mood.
