Absolute wonderful picture. Love the back-light. What I like about the Germans Markets, they make a big thing about the decorations. I love that.
A Dutch windmill.... it always make me smile when I see those landmarks.
May the New Year bring lots of light and a lot of trips, I am looking forward to that (and other things smile)
Happy New Year, Gelukkig Nieuwjaar, MLS.
Ginnie Hart: Hartstikke bedankt, MLMA. We are so lucky to live so close to Germany...like having the best of both worlds at our fingertips. And yes, we'll have many more trips in 2013, God willing and the creek don't rise. smile

Beautiful lighting in this. I like the birds and the sparkly lights of the decorations.

Happy New year to you and Astrid.
Ginnie Hart: Thahnk you, Alan. We're always like little kids at the Christmas markets, especially once it's dark! Happy New Year.

Yes, the mill is your icon - and I love the magic light which is filling the whole photo. I wish you and Astrid also a Happy New Year with a plethora of sunny hours and blissful, vivid life- your windmill may be going on day for day - only at night and over the weekends there must be some rest and rust en ontspanning!
I thank you very much for your warm and encouraging and funny words - I hope that we will see us again in 2013!
Ginnie Hart: Hartstikke bedankt, Philine, and YES, we will plan to see you in 2013...maybe here in Gorinchem!
It's a beautiful picture

Je vous souhaite à tous une bonne et heureuse année 2013

Happy new year ginnie! Lovely shot, it took me a moment to realise this was a model!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Sarah, and yes. This was the top of one of the Christmas-market stalls in Köln. smile Happy New Year to you and yours.

Ginnie Hart: I would love to see that "windmill land," Frank. Astrid and I had an overnight once in a windmill B&B. I can just imagine living in one. Happy New Year to you and yours. I do believe the sun is eager to shine on us all.

Happy New Year to You and Yours! We will stay at home this night because of the cats, they fear fireworks...
Best wishes♥♥♥
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Luiza, and Happy New Year to you! We will stay home, too, because Astrid has to work till at least 5p...or maybe even 7p. She'll want to crash and we will, bringing in the new year together. The fireworks will be going off until about 2a! HA!
