travelling through the dutch countryside…
Posted in amsterdam, pia's photos April 29th, 2009 by piablog

For the past week or so I’ve been traveling back and forth from a gorgeous studio in Bilthoven, here in The Netherlands. Each morning and each night on the trains home I see the most beautiful scenery – lambs playing, cows grazing, horses galloping… all amongst lovely old dutch farmhouses, and the greenest grass. It’s a wonderful way to arrive to work and a wonderful way to leave. I haven’t had a chance to take photos of the town which is so picturesque, and unfortunately tomorrow is my last day on the shoot. So I will take my camera in the hope to catch a moment here and there to show you around. I’ve really enjoyed this shoot and the team I’m working with, and hope to work with them again. It’s a bit of a way to travel everyday, but it’s been such a pleasure! Here are some photos I’ve captured while on the train thus far…

gorgeous, non?


PS oops I nearly left out this one…

    Oh I am so happy to be in NL during Spring again (it’s been a while)! Your shots are beautiful, so typical of the Dutch countryside aren’t they? I took some shots of the gorgeous tulip fields in Noord-Holland recently:

    It is so interesting to read your enthusiastic notes about the dutch landscape. So many Dutch people travel each day and don’t see anything beautiful. Even when you are on the highway you can see so much. I am always happy when my husband is driving, so I can look outside the window. You don’t have to go far away from home to see beautiful things (although I like to that also). Thanks for showing that.

    miranda – thank you! i often wonder if people see the same beautiful things out the window that I see, i’m always amazed to look around the train and everyone has their ipods in and are staring at their hands. i feel like yelling, look where you live, its so beautiful!
