SkyWatch Friday

These pictures look very different from the usual green Dutch country sides which are flat and usually covered in green grass. The photos were taken on the Veluwe a region in the centre of the Netherlands. Dry and sandy heathland surrounded by (to Dutch standards) vast woods. The sky was just as dull as the land.

Good thing we can still see patches of green even if its in a dry & sandy area. Well, more wide spaces to view a bigger blue sky. :)

Je hebt zo van die dagen dat lucht alleen maar grijs en uitgebeten overkomt, maar desondanks is je onderste foto mooi geworden.
Maak er een mooi weekend van, Jossie!

The sky is interesting, even when it's not beautiful. I had no idea that there were places in the Netherlands that looked like this.

PS I'm enjoying all the photos around the edges, too!

Die saaie luchten toch, ja, maar dan is er het landschap of toch net niet ... Voordeel van schilders is dat ze er wolken kunnen inschilderen en net dat iets meer groen, maar ja, we zijn fotografen hé ....
Fijne SW
Groetjes,

That is interesting landscape. Not what I'd expect to find in the Netherlands. Hope your gray skies turn sunny soon! Thanks for stopping by.
