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.

Wat leuk dat je er een heel blogje voor hebt opgezet.
Ik was het ergens tegengekomen en dacht...Oh leuk daar kan ik wel aan meedoen. Heb je ook een idee, wie het gestart is of ben jij dat?

hartelijke groet en geniet van het lekkere weer!
