SkyWatch Friday

A sunny day, a lovely view and a beautiful sky. Feels good after a rainy week. A rural area not far from our home. The farm in the distance is located in Germany. The border between Netherlands and Germany is somewhere in the valley. Thanks to a united Europe there are no boundaries anymore and you would not know if you had crossed a border.

This region is traditionnaly Roman Catholic and everywhere along the way you will find road crosses and field crosses. Some of them are real gems. While taking pictures I saw this simple but beautiful cross right next to where I was standing. Only in this road there are three crosses. No pictures of the other two. Too much traffic.

After two steamy warm days the sky finally cleared just before sunset today. So much fun to look up again.

SkyWatch Friday

While staying in the Belgian Ardennes a few weeks ago we had days and days of rain with a dark and gloomy sky. After three days the sky opened for a few seconds and surprised us with a beautiful rainbow very close to the house we stayed. It was gone before we got to the pot of gold. So close to it and no luck!

More wonderful sky photos are just a click away.

Skywatch Friday

It has been very long since I posted here. It was an eventful time with my husband having an accident and being hospitalised, his recovery and therapy and hence our moving house. It left no time for photography. Things are easing down now and I hope to get time to go out again and take some pictures now and then.
This week we spent in the western part of the Netherlands  in the province of Zeeland.  I always am amazed by the flatness of the land. It is all beneath sea level and so different from the part where we live.
