Capturing the Hauntingly Beautiful Atmosphere of the Dutch Woodlands

Nelleke Pieters' photographs perfectly encapsulate the haunting beauty of the woods. Based in Holland, the amateur photographer manages to extract a certain poignant atmosphere from the trees and leaves in the forest where she shoots. From fleeting appearances of wildlife, to delicate light streams and ever changing colourful leaves, Pieters records the amazing natural beauty of the world around her through her landscape photography.

The majority of the images were taken within the scenic Veluwe Woods of the Netherlands. The forest itself is a blend of different landscapes and types of vegetation, home to one of the largest continuous nature reserves in the country. This diverse natural setting provides a compelling scene for photo shoots as the environment constantly shifts and adopts a new face with every changing season. Pieter's images celebrate the beauty of the scenic woodlands and communicate the magic that permeates from within the forest.
