´Wintersday, Naarden´ by Dutch fine art photographer Marie-Claire Greve.
The photograph Wintersday is taken in February 2015 at the entrance of Naarden Vesting. I drove into the small town of Naarden when I saw a rather unique scenery. There was a thin layer of ice on the water and on top of it some snow. This made the water look still and smooth as in long exposure, for which I really don’t have the patience. I happened to have my camera with me. So, I had to stop and go for this painterly moment. Lying down on my belly, I took this one photograph and had the feeling I knew I liked it.

About the photographer
Marie-Claire Greve (1966) is a Dutch fine art photographer. She turned to photography in 2013 in order to share the passion for nature and wildlife she had since childhood. Her visit to Hugo van Lawick, when he was recording his film ‘Cheetah Family’ in the Serengeti, Tanzania, confirmed her profound desire to be in nature. She also completely fell in love with the continent Africa. When she took her photography to a next level by studying the camera, she soon felt completely at ease using and playing with the camera to capture nature the way she experienced it.
Soon a first invitation followed to exhibit her work. She learned that she could use her photographs to tell the story she wanted to share and herewith fulfill her personal desire to commit herself through her work, to the preservation of nature. She has since worked in over 10 different countries, from France to Japan, Iceland to Africa, to create her recognisable luminescent, painterly photographs.
‘When I’m out in nature I tend to forget all about the so-called ‘rules’ of photography and love to experiment with my camera. I try to use unusual perspectives and angles, or capture motion to trick the eye. My personal preference is to work with anything that moves; wind, water and wildlife and to work with soft, magical light that create the pastel tones I am looking for.’
All net revenue from this photo benefit nature conservation projects and the work of Alliance for Nature.
