I love flying low over the coast, Jeff. The colours and the patterns and the interactions are great to observe.

Kindest regards,

You must know the way if you're by boat Ian. Greetings Berend

The channels and sandbanks are constantly changing here. You, being a "boatie", would love it, Berend.

Very interesting to see this place from the air. The place is beautiful on the ground too. Cheers Fritz

Nice picture, difficult to hold the channel open...Like.

Greetings from Greetje

First I thought you were flying over the clouds. But this are sandbanks.
Astonishing shot!

Ian Stehbens on April 29, 2012

It is great to receive compliments from someone who has actually been there, Fritz. Thanks. And I hope you get there again soon - this winter perhaps?



Ian Stehbens on April 29, 2012

Indeed, navigation can be a challenge here with so much sand supply, Greetje. But it is a low energy bay most of the time, so there are few mishaps. I enjoy sharing our landscapes with you.

Warmest regards,

With all your travel experience Polytropos, It is special to provide an image that astonishes you! Thanks for the feedback.

There is always something you haven't seen yet. And I'm astonished always again about our nature, also in my closer environment.

Ian Stehbens on May 25, 2012

Yes, that is what inspires our landscape photography: seeing something new, or seeing differently. Thanks again, Polytropos.
