Video: four Dutch seasons in the Veluwe national park

Dutch student Rick Kloekke has completed a year long project recording the seasons as they come and go at the Veluwe national park.

The result is a timelapse video showing the reserve in all its glory. ‘I wanted to put a piece of Dutch nature in the spotlight,’ Kloekke told the AD. ‘I chose the Veluwe because it is a beautiful area with its rolling landscape.’

Kloekke is not completely satisfied with the completed film. ‘I would rather have seen the seasons more clearly,’ the 22-year-old said.

Nevertheless, the project has already brought him his first commissions, the AD reported.
