A few years ago, I published my (still very popular) heather series titled Purple Dream that consisted of images that portrayed the Dutch heather landscapes in August when everything turns purple. But the heather is not only beautiful when it’s purple — it’s interesting all year round.
Here is a new series titled Dutch Heather Seasons that shows the Dutch heather through the year from the regular purple shots through summer and the winter frost. This year we also had an unusual drought that caused the heather to turn red even. All in all, the Dutch heather is always a nice subject to photograph, especially during foggy mornings.
Fun fact: this entire series was shot on the heather fields around Hilversum!
