This is Amsterdam. In the past this city was built
on pillars (I assume because of the water).
Sluices to deal with water level differences
are a common sight in all of the Netherlands.
Seen in Hortus Gardens Groningen
There are not only wind mills in Kinderdijk.
Hubby’s capture of Mama Duck and her kids
These typical huge roofs and TWO doors in this barn.
If I had known then about Thurs. doors, I would have
taken a close up to make the doors stand out more- alas!
My sense is that the roofs are so high, because they needed
space above the animals for the hay for the long winters?
They even call it (translated) “a hay attic.”
Thurs. Doors, ABC Wed – Door
Still a big thing for Dutch millenials is to spend a week or two
for Christmas across the pond every 2 years.
In Yosemite Nat. Park, we took this image for his friends,
to prove he was really with his parents in the USA.
One Word Photo: Voyage, ABC- Dutch
Reflections of the Pollard Willows
These short stubby trees are seen in some
of Vincent van Gogh’s Drawings/paintings.
They grow near the water.
Sun Trees, Natur Donnerstag, Weekend Reflection
All the above images were taken on very nice days with sun.
In Holland there are on average 23 per year!!
So this is a more common view of the sky.
Makro Tex asked for a black and white. Not in Holland
but in front of our previous condo in Costa Mesa, CA
Thanks to All the Hosts!
