Travel Day (10)

After a five-week stint at home it was back to business traveling today, taking my (usual) 6am flight from Nuremberg to Amsterdam and on to Portland for two weeks of project work in the Pacific Northwest. The five-week flying hiatus meant finally a new meal menu and also a bunch of new movies to watch.

During the early morning approach to Amsterdam Schiphol I took some aerials of the frozen coastal area of the Netherlands. And connecting through AMS airport I used the opportunity for some quick street (or rather airport) shooting. For all the photos continue after the jump…

Frequent readers will notice that I revisited my favorite Schiphol locations, like the terminal waiting area with the big video clock, the Heineken Bar and the decorated walkway between concourses B and C. But way shouldn’t a street shooter revisit his preferred hunting grounds?

Quite happy with the output of some early morning photography I took to the skies for my flight to Rose City.

All photos were taken with my Olympus PEN-F with the mZuiko 17mm F/1.8. Raw conversion and post processing in Lightroom Classic CC.

  1. Hello =), my name is Kevin and I am running a travel blog under the name Happyandfreetobe. I really like your article, why don’t we connect??? So we can share our love for travel & help each to boost our travel blog. I wish you all the best, bon voyage. Kev

  2. Marcus well done. The man in the clock image in the lower light is a standout. It’s hard to stop looking at all the detail. I want to continue to look, look, look. Fascinating.
    The other image that is delightful is the mirror image of the waitress. You know it’s a reflection but it’s so right in the middle it causes me to take a double take.

    1. Thanks, Tim, much appreciated! The reflective glass was a big fish tank with tropical fish, I got some more photos where colorful fish swim across the people behind…will eventually post them as well.

      1. Scenes like airports can be fascinating or absolutely boring. Same seating arrangements, long isles and repeating food, gift and service centers.You travel so much you know.

  3. Those aerials are amazing Marcus. I’ll have to do more exploring at the airport in Amsterdam should I ever return there. Thanks for sharing. I hope your time in Portland brings some scenic opportunities! -Amy

    1. Thanks, Amy, glad you like the photos. Wish you to connect through AMS soon 🙂 ! The weather forecast for my Portland weekend is splendid, so I will for sure head out with my camera! Marcus
