The Click

When you press the shutter there isn’t just that click of the shutter. There is also that click briefly before when you see the moment. It builds up. The light, the subject, your mood. You feel it. And some of these moments demands to be cherished. This one is for my wife.

    1. I knew I had this few minutes before the rain would arrive (you can see the dark clouds in the distance). That moment before the sun would be covered with clouds can be special. In the Netherlands we like to call that ‘The Dutch Light” which was used a lot in famous paintings from the 17th century.

  1. Happy Mother’s Day Wouter! What a beautiful image. There’s so much going on in this image as I see a beautiful young lady with confidence in her gaze as she’s enjoying a light spring breeze through her hair with the fragrance from the nearby flowers wafting by.

  2. This is photo is brilliant Wouter. Amazing photograph. Thank you for sharing your photos and thoughts on photography.

    1. Thank you Björn (my son is named Björn too). Even though the composition is kept simple there is still a lot going on in the photograph. I like that a lot.

  3. It is moments like this that make our photography so rewarding. You’ve captured a moment that I’m sure will leave an indelible impression in your wife’s memory. My friend ‚Äē bravo, very nicely done and processed, you poured your soul on this one (hint, hint, “soul”) Happy Mother’s day to your wife and others in your family.

  4. Wouter,

    This is just a wonderful photo. May I get technical and ask what camera and pp if any? Again a gorgeous memory!

  5. The magic of the moment. And you who are able to capture them so masterly. And the countryside lies wide before us. Thanks, my friend!

    All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

  6. Hi Wouter! Fantastic photography and great thoughts in your blog – really inspiring to me. I think I noticed your shots in Flickr some years ago through my long time Flickr friend, Richard (whom you know I think). Now I came to see your blog. What a shame I did not do this earlier.

    Best wishes from Finland,


    1. Thank you so much. I read you ordered the GR and that Richard already has one. I have still no idea when I receive mine. Love to hear your thoughts on the GR.
