Last autumn, I signed up for a photography workshop in Belgium – you can find out the story and see many photos here, and I thought it wouldn’t hurt if I made the most out of the trio and visited other places as well. After all, it’s a pretty long trip.
I chose Holland and friends recommended the Hoge Veluwe National Park, one of the largest national reserves in the country. It comprises forests, sand dunes, and black grass fields.
Yesterday I was still staying put, because my hotel is pretty isolated, at around 7 km from the nearest village, Hoenderloo, in the forest.
But around 11.00 I decided to get dressed for the occasion, with hiking boots, rain jacket and insulating trousers, because the weather here is rainy, and I headed for Hoenderloo, where the entrance to the National Park is located.
At the gate, the man I bough my ticket from recommended to visit the Kröller-Müller Museum first.
The museum houses the art collection of the Kröller-Müller couple, and includes numerous works by artists such as Van Gogh, Picasso, Rodin and others.
Once in there, I felt for a moment that I might not be dressed properly for such grandiose place where people came in elegant attire. I might’ve made an interesting contrast with my hiking clothes, but it made no difference in the end.
I decided to focus on the fact that I was allowed to take pictures and enjoyed myself tremendously.
Look what I saw there:
MOVE ON… 🙂
An iron car, maybe Batman‘s car… 🙂
”Even though I’m often in a mess, inside me there’s still a calm, pure harmony and music” – Vincent van Gogh, 21 July 1882.
I read about Van Gogh and I realised that it’s OK to be different.
And also that good work takes years of practice.
”I say it again – work against indifference. Perseverance isn’t easy – but things that are easy mean little” – he writes to his brother on 15 June 1885

As I left the park, I saw some deers. I tried to photograph them, as well as I could manage with my 85 mm lens, the biggest I own…🙂
So when you are crossing Holland, I really recommend you to pay a visit to this beautiful, huge park.
I’ve only managed to see a small part of it, but anyone can enjoy both: a nice walk in nature, and a great museum.
