A lovely scene, Ginnie.

At first I felt you had left in too much [mostly featureless] sky but, on looking at it for a while, have now decided you got it exactly right.
Ginnie Hart: Very kind of you, Ray. In astrology we often say "As in heaven above, so on earth below." Maybe that's why I equalled them out? smile

Not too many boats moored in this tranquil scene Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: At this exact spot, Chad, you could say there was a monopoly! smile
calm, cool, collected indeed! Beautiful!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Robin.
Water as smooth as silk... beautiful soft reflections Ginnie....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir, and Happy Birthday again!
That is so peaceful looking and so beautiful.
A nice crisp shot with great colour.

This is Holland on its best. A wonderful crisp and very quiet picture. Postcard worthy.
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, MLMA. This is so much a part of why I love this beautiful country...and the charming city of Woudrichem.
It is very calm... what a lovely image! Perfectly balanced in every way!
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Elizabeth. Thank you.
Such a wonderful and peaceful perspective Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard. It definitely felt that way to me, too.

A drizzly day, Ginnie? No one stirs in this peaceful picture
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Lisl. We took our umbrellas but never had to use them, thankfully. I can live with that...an overcast kind of cozy day! smile

Oh, Woudrichem sounds so familar and lovely in my ears - you display today a fabulous photo- so calm!
Ginnie Hart: You should remember this city well, Philine, since it was so shrouded in fog the day we were there. It's become one of my favorite Dutch cities...and is just across the river from us! Bedankt.

Having been there once I can say with authority this looks to be very Dutch Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Chris, and we will go back again when you come with Lisl to see some new places...like the windmill, which we can climb to the top! I can hardly wait.

This is delightful; I like the feel of tranquility here. Just right to mark (almsot) the start of the weekend.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Alan. It did feel like something we might all need for this Friday! smile
jolie perspective!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, JP.
Well taken Ginnie. I love the pops of red and blues in the reflections too.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Jacquelyn. This is a place I have really grown to love, just across the river from us.
This is a beauty, Ginnie. Very, very pretty.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Mary.

A beautiful photo of the boat on Friday - I 'appreciate this nice reflection - Good weekend to you
Ginnie Hart: Very kind of you, Pat. Thanks.
Excellent compo, Ginnie. Could look good in B&W too, with that neutral sky.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Tom, and yes, on the B&W. But then I would have selective-colored those blue bits. grin
A lovely little backwater far from the madding crowd Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I like that thought, Janet! smile Thanks.
Isn't this just a superb picture, it doesn't need lots of sunshine, that would make it a chocolate box picture, I'm quite envious that you were able to be there to take this.
Ginnie Hart: You and Maureen would love this little city, Brian. It's totally worth the experience. Thank you.
