SkyWatch Friday

While it was rainy and cold in most of the Netherlands our corner had the best weather you can imagine. Nice temperature, a light breeze and beautiful clear skies.

Do you see the angel flying towards me?

My World Tuesday

While driving around to find a photogenic spot to try my new camera I passed the Hoensbroek castle again. Artists were building sand sculptures for a medieval festival on the grounds next to the castle. Visitors are not allowed to enter the site until the artists have finished the sculptures. I managed to take some pictures standing on the road nearby. Though they were at a distance of about 150 metres I zoomed in with my camera and was surprised at what I saw when I uploaded the photos. Very clear pictures. Amazing what you can do with sand and amazing what my simple camera did (again a Kodak Easy Share). A pity though that this was the only angle where I could see a little of the sculptures.
