Een mooie serie lever je van deze omgeving af. Vooral deze vind ik qua compo zeer sterk. Een soort van brug naar het oneindige. Dit kijkt heerlijk weg Corry.

Dankjewel voor je bijzonder aardige reactie. Ondanks Google heb ik lang moeten zoeken hoe ik hier met de auto kon komen. Ik wilde hier beslist naar toe en dat is gelukt ook. Geweldig mooie locatie en de houten vlonder maakt er iets heel speciaals van.

Hartelijke groetjes, Corry
