Autumn island

A few months ago me and a close friend made a trip to Vlieland, my favorite Dutch island. We planned on shooting some footage for my second longplay video. My friend is a skilled cameraman who also shot my Painting Clouds video.

The idea was to crosscut the images with paintings I made, to show the impact of the island on my work. The weather forecast was good, so we were hoping for sunshine and clouds. When we got on the ferry it was still a bit misty, but we didn't mind. The boat trip takes about an hour and a half and we shot some wonderful images of the hazy sun, reflecting on the water. We were convinced that, by the time we'd get on the island, the sun would come out and we'd see some stunning clouds.

Well, you probably get where this is going. Nothing of the kind happened. The sun didn't come out all day. We rode our bikes all over the island and we had a great time, but we'll have to come back for the clouds.

I used the footage we shot for a short YouTube video. Hope you like it.


  1. What a beautiful video. Here's a haiku it inspired:
    Together we walk
    over sand dunes to the beach
    waves whisper, "hush...hush."
