winter

In the Netherlands, it seems as though autumn is filling in for winter until spring arrives. We drove to Germany today; the cold and snow there took us by surprise. A pleasant surprise, because I wasn't sure I was going to see anything like this anymore before next year.

When Google acquired Nik Software (the makers of the Viveza and Silver Efex plugins) last year I was a bit sceptical. There have been many initiatives and startups that have died a premature death through take-overs by big companies, so I didn't feel entirely confident about Nik staying around. However, today Google reaffirmed their commitment to the software and announced a big price reduction for the entire collection. Lucky me: I didn't buy all the plugins but because I was an existing customer I was now able to download the rest for free.

This photo is from my 50 meters series- unpublished until now- and is edited with one of the nik plugins, in case you were wondering why I combined this text with this image..
