Boat Friday

 

While with the English gents last week we visited our sister city, Woudrichem,

over the river and rainbow from where Astrid and I live in the Netherlands.


Have a beautiful weekend wherever you are.

Great timing with the rainbow.
Fabulous shot. Each time, no matter what time of yearr we visit this harbour, it gives a very impressive view.
'Home for the weekend' feeling here..... smile
Ginnie Hart: I LOVE our sister city across the river from us, MLMA. Let's go back to see her more often!
You have so much that i love in this picture Ginnie... beautiful well crafted sailboats... wooden piers... a lighthouse on the horizon... and then you go and drop a rainbow in just for luck... it was your lucky day....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: No lighthouse, Peter, but you can pretend. HA! And thank you. It is one of my favorite little harbors, just across the river from where we live! The rainbow was for being lucky while Chad and Chris were with us! smile
The rainbow is a perfect touch.
Ginnie Hart: It was a great delight to all 4 of us, Michael! Thanks.

What a wonderful moment to capture this fading rainbow over Holland!
Ginnie Hart: It brought a big "aaaah" moment to all 4 of us, Philine, as you can imagine. smile Bedankt.

I was really impressed with the variety of wonderful wooden hull craft you have in the Netherlands Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I am, too, Chris. I never tire of seeing these boats! Thank you.

A stunning photograph of this lovely place Ginnie. Great sky and that rainbow indicates that we had some rain.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chad. We did have some rain (after that first deluge from the airport), but not enough to ruin the visit at all, which was wonderful! The rainbow was wonderful to see that day in Woudrichem.
great shot Ginnie, nicely positioned. the rainbow is a cheerful touch
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush. The rainbow WAS quite serendipitous that day!

The boats are unmistakably Dutch. What a gorgeous scene they make against that wonderful sky.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Alan. The more often I visit England, the more I realize just how unique these Dutch boats really are.

J'ai toujours aimé les bateaux, tous les bateaux et plus particulièrement les voiliers. Jolies couleurs et lumière
Ginnie Hart: I have, too, Marie...especially these Dutch boats! Merci.
Beautiful shot Ginnie, love the rich colour and how fortunate with the rainbow! smile

I had never heard the term "chocolate box" image before today. I had a hunch what it meant, but I had to look it up. smile Beautiful.
Ginnie Hart: HA! We have several here at SC, Ruth, who relegate certain images into the "choccie box" genre of photography...of which this is clearly an example. smile I forget sometimes that others may not know what we're talking about.

Thank you!
This's a wonderful place
Great colors, shapes, reflections in the water
Nice mood
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Helys. It's a charming little town and harbor right across the river from where we live.
Wow, stunning!
Can you zoom in a bit?
I wanna see if the leprechaun is sunbathing there. ;p
Ginnie Hart: HA! What you really want, LC, is a Guinness! grin

In an almost cloudless part of the sky. By all accounts I thought you had a lot of rain during their visit - would have served chris and his rainy fridays just right. But not the rest of you smile
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Louis, the evening we drove them to our home from the airport was raining cats and dogs. In that one evening we had as much rain as we get in a month. Luckily, the rest of the timne was very nice!
Nice hint of a rainbow, the light is great after rain
Ginnie Hart: It was most serendipitous, John! smile
Picture perfect, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Just like a choccie box, Beverly, right? smile I couldn't resist.

The rainbow makes it for me Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Foe me, too, Richard! smile Merci.
Lovely shot, Ginnie. I see you are less than 2 hours away from Maastricht smile

I like these Dutchland versions of our narrow boats, and they come complete with masts and sails.

Rainbow symbolizes hope to me, the biblical agreement between God and his (or her) people and Ginnie, your photo makes the hope vibrant. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! smile
