Dear Michelle,

A "Big-Stopper" is a very..very..very...dark ND filter (as good as black) and creates a shutter speed wich is 10 stops slower as normal. Therefor you can create long exposure times and the "milky water effect" in your images even during bright daylight.

What... Jeroen Stel shooting landscapes... Has he lost his mind..??

Yep...on "daddy-day" you can not always chase Birds and Deer but.... a nice day at the beach with my son has now officially opened my eyes to landscape photography..

p.s: The word in the bottom right corner is made in the concrete blocks they used for the dam. It is a funny wordplay as the word "tide" in Dutch is called "tijd" but this word also means "time". So they made some wordplays in the concrete blocks like this one saying "tij-dsbesparing" wich means "saving time" (propably as they have used very large concrete blocks back then to save time...
