Hennie van Heerden's Wildlife Diary

Playing out..

According to the weather forecast it would become a fantastic day. As it had been raining for weeks already I figured that I should take full advantage of that prediction. Well, they were right this time, but not immediately. I started off really early in the morning when it was still dark, foggy and drizzling. Reached the National Park De Veluwezoom at sunrise. Way too dark to photograph. And of course that’s exactly the moment that you see all the animals. Wild Boar, Wild horses.. they all made their appearance. At those moments wildlife photography is at its most frustrating. Here you are, at a rediculous time of day, all ready for action, and you can’t do anything else than wait until there is more light .. Grr. Raised iso to incredible values and at least got some shots but more to prove to myself that the animals really were there than expecting anything good would come out of it.
Still, sometimes you just got to enjoy the moment and this was definitively one of these moments.

Later that day I again went to De Hoge Veluwe as rutting reached its peak. Ah… beautiful!
