Former royal palace by bverbrugge

This is the former Dutch royal palace in Baarn, the Netherlands. Nowadays the palace is empty, but once it used to thrive with activity until 2004 when former Queen Juliana passed away. Originally the building was built around 1650. In its long history it has been altered and extended.

Dutch supermoon eclipse by bverbrugge

Catching the rare super blood moon total eclipse gave me a short night. The wheather predictions weren’t that great. When I woke up at 03.30 (a.m) I could see the eclipse clearly from my bedroom window. So I left home by bicycle to go to a spot where I would have a nice foreground. There was a bit of mist, but luckily not too much. It was worth the early rise. What a magnificent night it was. Live is a gift!

FYI: I used two exposures, as the rotation of the moon does not allow long exposure photos.
