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.
