    Silver in Nature / Aerial

Photo taken at 42.000ft over the Sahara desert, flying at the edge of space. Our beautiful little blue marble, floating through the vast void of infinity.

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.
