Sky watch Friday




All that water scares me sometimes. This is Holland, two provinces at the coast and below sea level. Fortunately I live in the 'safe' part of the Netherlands far above sea level. Far right you can see part of the Delta Works the huge project to keep the water out. If you click on the pic you'll have a better view.

First of all, I love your header and the wonderful pattern and different shades of the green fields! Marvelous! Your shot for today is very interesting and there are lovely clouds -- maybe more than you would like, but I can see hopeful patches of blue! Hope you have a great weekend!

This is a beautiful photo. Those clouds are thick and billowy. Thanks for sharing

Great grey sky. I thought the building in my post was a mosque too but I cannot find any separate information on it. It may be a mosque that is only used by the students. A bit like some Catholic schools have a chapel or church on their grounds that is only used by their school students.

Great sky photo. I know there have been many floods before. Keep dry!

Such a huge flat expanse filled with water could be most intimidating. But it makes a lovely photo with those silvered clouds!

Ger is ook altijd blij dat wij hoog wonen (O: Ik heb daar niet zoveel moeite mee. Ik denk dat ik liever 'laag' zou wonen.
Fijn weekeinde!

Je hebt een prachtige wolkenlucht vastgelegd boven de Deltawerken, al zie ik momenteel eerlijk gezegd liever wat vriendelijk lichtblauw in de lucht.

All that water is one of my favorite memories of the years I spent in Holland. Great photo, thanks for sharing.

I love water but it can be dangerous. Beautiful shot.

I did make the picture and I see the delta you are referring too. I have seen in Discovery channel about Holland about how the country is surrounded by water. You've got a great shot here thanks for sharing and thanks for dropping by at my blog I do appreciate it.

A very dramatic picture of water and sky. It always amazes me how land is won and the water tamed. I do not think that the deichs have risen any time or am I wrong?

Might be frightening if you think about you are under sea level but the huge Delta project must be something you can trust.
