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.

As far as the landscape is concerned there are lots of similarities with Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia... especially where the palm oil plantations have replaced the jungles. I hope you do make it to Solomon Islands one day, ƤōƝƓ. All the best and thanks for the appreciative visit.


Thanks for your interest and appreciation, ƤōƝƓ. I think I have made my last visit to Malaita, so these photos are rather special for me... added to that is the fact that we had hours to walk carrying rice and luggage to get here as the bridges had been washed away by torrential rain earlier in the year.


Great to share some typical scenes from home with you ƤōƝƓ, and to have you recognize its essence.

Greetings from OZ.


Hi ƤōƝƓ,

Yes they are Melanesians. The lady in the foreground is a Malaitan, the community of people hosting (in the background) are Guadalcanal people.



Greetings Berend. I understand. My Panoramio, too, has to take a back-seat lately, because of the responsibilities that involve other people. Panoramio at best is now retreat time... Though it is still a privilege to see the variety of images and places that you and others upload for us.

All the best,


Prachtige compositie met fraaie kleurcontrasten. Like&Fav

Ik kan mij helemaal voorstellen dat dit jou favoriete boom is.

Fijne avond!



Must be great for living and birding! F + L

Bubble? It is a new normal that I don't think will end well. These are artificial demands just because people don't know where to park money. Negative interest rates are coming to Australia and Asia!!!

The same applies to Thailand.
