A Farm In Ottoland.

I love the countryside, and I love everything to do with farms. The smell of cows, hay bales, freshly mowed grass, chicken food, and rusty tractors makes you feel like you’ve just entered a completely different part of Holland.

Ottoland is completely stunning. Farmland and old farmhouses everywhere, and when you drive a little further through the back roads, there are endless beautiful Dutch homes on the water side which turns to ice in winter. Because we were driving (during a lovely sunset) I wasn’t able to capture this village, but I’m sure I will revisit this nostalgic place soon. I’m hoping for a cold winter so I can experience the ice skating too!

I wanted to photograph the countryside so Esther (whom I’ve photographed quite a few times now) took me to her cousin’s farm where we were given a bit of a tour of their little remote farm. As a bonus her two gorgeous little boys came and showed us their farming skills too.

Aren’t they just delightful?!

The sunset was absolutely breathtaking, and we took a little stroll around the properties and waterside. Ofcourse we could not help but take a few portrait shots. Esther even took some of me! I LOVE this driveway, just look at those trees!

  1. Beautiful photos and subjects. I was partially raised on a farm and once you have lived on a farm it never leaves you. Thank you for reminding me. Thank you for sharing it all and take care. -Max-
