In winter, the sun is low and the grazing light creates lovely shadows: great weather for photos. We’ve asked Texel-based photographer Ruth de Ruwe how to take good wintry photographs of Texel. Ruth is a landscape photographer, publishes books of her own photographs and did the photography for De Smaak van Texel.
Early morning, before the sun melts the hoar frost, is a good time: a white layer covers the dark-brown heather and blond beach grass; the schapenboet in the background adds a finishing touch to this Texel landscape.
If the weather is cold, the fishing cutters, returning from their mid-week trip, are often covered in a layer of ice. If the harbour is frozen over, this wintry scene is perfect.
When it freezes, sea water splashes up and forms icicles on the wire of the fence; the frozen Wadden Sea is a spectacular sight too.
There’s a lot to see here, even when the weather is mild. Beech trees grow in a few places in De Dennen and their golden leaves cover the ground around them, forming a wonderful contrast against the brownish green trunks and branches.
