Hi, I'm Berend, born in The Hague but I live in Maassluis since 1969. Previous I only made some snapshots during holidays. In 2007 I bought a digital SLR and started to make pictures as a hobby and not only during holidays. Since 2009 I try to photograph birds, it's like chasing but the birds stays alive. I've uploaded most of my photos in chronological order, so you can make the journey/hike with me. Pictures of my holidays are in labels starting with an asterix (*). I hope you like my pictures and hope to get constructive comments as I have much to learn. PLEASE NO INVITATIONS FOR GROUPS!!! Greetings from the Netherlands.

Awesome Photo Steve. Welcome back to Aus mate

A lot of congratulations for this luxury of photography.


Nikos1954 from Greece-Piraeus.

Welcome back, ƤōƝƓ. This is beach, dune system and island were created by the longshore drift of sand, northwards along the NSW and south Queensland coast. Volcanic islands, lava flows or uplifted sandstone geology interrupts the flow temporarily accumulating sand on the southern side of the resulting headlands. During the Pleistocene ice age the volume of sand available was massive and the onshore winds then blow the sand from the beach ridge to the NW in longitudinal dunes. Since vegetated. The forests then are on sand and are very vulnerable ecosystems, susceptible to fire, animal or human traffic for where the cover has been broken or removed, sand blows form, and the sand migrates again burying vegetation, even forests in its path.

Gold Coast beaches, Sunshine Coast beaches are all part of this river of sand, as are the major sand islands of Stradbroke, Moreton, Fraser.


There is 165M fall here, which makes it a magnet to me, and each time I stand in the gorge awesome, majestic and special are the words that come from my lips.

Thanks for your appreciation, ƤōƝƓ.


It is always wonderful to explore your galleries, May, and also very special to receive a generous comment from you. I am not finding much time for photography lately, but the love and interest is very much still there. I met a former Swiss citizen yesterday and inevitably in our conversation I spoke of the Emmental and Engadin!
