Good morning/afternoon/evening/night! So you might have seen my previous instagram edition of Diemerbos, but I actually first visited the area a few weeks before that particular gloriously sunny day, on a horribly dreary winter afternoon (when I did take my camera with me). So despite the bad weather, or maybe because of it, I turned my attention to the urban traces within Diemerbos, rather than the “natural environment” planners have forcibly tried to recreate in the formerly mushy polder area.
The first photo is basically a close-up of a narrow stream that ran along the bike-path at the entrance of the Diemerbos, which was looking a bit grubby, creating an interesting rippling effect on the surface (and beautiful shifts in colour). The next one is where I leaned in to take a photo of little, soft tufts of moss growing on the side of a channel close to the highway (and where a few passers-by gave me multiple weird looks, understandably). I’m not too happy about the quality of the third one, but I thought I should include it anyway. This little bike-tunnel was situated right below a highway, which crosses right through Diemerbos. So yep, not a lot of photos this time, but I quite liked the first two, so I wanted to share them with you.
