Photos

During the last few days, my dad and I have gone out in a car in the general area. Last night I took my camera along, as we made our way into Germany. That's only 15 miles away, and since the elimination of border checks an easy trip to make. The difference between the two countries is quite marked, if only in terms of architecture. When I stood on a hill near the village of Elten, the view encompassed dozens of windturbines. It presented the vista that nearly got foisted on the Isle of Lewis, had the Scottish Government not put paid to the proposal to build 180 of the things there.

I have opened a separate Flickr account for my Dutch (and German) photographs. I am not going to upload things twice, which is a waste of bandwidth.

Hi Guido. I hope you and your dad are doing OK. It's so good to see entries from you! I'll go over and take a peek at you photos now, I've never been to Holland so it's all new to me! Jeannette xx

Looking forward to seeing the pics...my connection is poor at best today with heavy rains so I will be heading over to Flickr when a better connection is available.  Happy to see an entry & pictures and hope you are doing a little better.

Such beautiful photos Guido.  Thank you so much for sharing them.  I guess I didn't realize that Germany was so close to Holland. Makes me shudder when I think about the poor people in Holland during WWII.  Take care, we miss you. Linda in sunny Washington state

I actually liked being able to view the pictures this way. Beautiful scenery. It becomes apparent on viewing them you are no longer in Scotland. You still have an amazing eye in capturing the beauty of the land around you. Hope all is well with you and your father my dear friend. Glad to see you and your dad are out and about. (Hugs) Indigo

How lovely to see you Gudio.  I'm looking forward to seeing your photos too. I'm happy to read that you and your Dad are getting out and about and spending time together.
Sounds like Stornoway had a lucky miss on the turbines.  Ugly monsters that they are!
We have them dotted around the Lakes.  huh!
Off to look at your photos.  Thanks for keeping in touch with all of us.
You are an angel.
