Holland - Groningen - Ter Apelkanaal - January 20, 2007

In Holland we do not have impressive mountains. Our country is extremely flat and lies for one quarter even beneath sea level. The wind is stopped nowhere and gives us our impressive ever changing skies. Landscape paintings made in Holland got famous for their skies already in the 17th century, also called the Golden Age.

With a view to the small series of four photos (at the right) with skies only I chose for the above photo a sky higher than ususal!

This is one of the views my grandson can enjoy on a daily basis. The meadow (and its animals) is nextdoors... I hope it will stimulate and deepen his love for nature, as it did with me living in the country as a child.

Thank you very much dear Ander for liking the photo and for your congratulations!
I would be very surprised if I would see mount Esja all of a sudden at the horizon somewhere in Holland! :)

2000 pictures WOW Congratulations
I would miss the hills, where I live it is all hills. I live at the top of a hill so when I go out I have to climb a hill to get back home again. Oh well it keeps you young I suppose!

Thanks Hans. It could have been in Zealand too, in so far you are right with your remark that you 'recognized the location'!!! :)

Thanks dear Foggydew for your comment. I guess the painting feel is because of the clouds too!

wonderful shot again....

Thanks Apud for your kind reaction. I can imagine that you would not feel at home in Holland because of your being accustomed to your hills all the time. And for sure they keep you fit! For us in Holland one of the attractions of being abroad is: mountains and hills! :)
