This is one of the pictures where you wonder what is on the end of the staircase, Ginnie. (and we know!)

This is great Ginnie, super shot.
Ginnie Hart: How very sweet of you, Chad. Thank you.
This is a cracking picture Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir!
Wat een prachtige foto is dit.
Echt dreigend maar zo mooi !
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Marjolein. It was such a glorious day in every way.
this is a sublimely beautiful picture!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you most kindly, Elaine.
I like this Ginnie, a good old fashioned darkroom style image. That lock is enormouse, it makes the ones on our canals, which I know you enjoy seeing, look very small.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Brian. That lock/storm barrier will "save" The Netherlands more times than not, I'm sure, in the years to come. (sigh)
Fantastic point of view and dramatic treatment!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ruthie.

Oooerrr.. lovely! A fine invitation to climb the stairs... as long as there is a cafe nearby at the top.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, actually, Alan, the café is at the bottom. But that's because the hilltop is for better viewing the entire storm barrier.
i had a stairway to heaven when i saw your image Ginnie... then i checked your comment....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Awww. How very sweet, Peter. Thank you.
You sure thats the destination, Ginnie...smile Cracking shot and processing.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, heaven is what we make of it, I suppose, Frank. How many times have I said to Astrid, "I could die and go to heaven right now!" smile Thanks.

what an apt title for this dramatic shot, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
It may be my vivid imagination, Ginnie, but I can see several faces in those clouds. Impeccable processing.
Ginnie Hart: Must be the angels calling, Beverly?! smile Thank you kindly.
Nothing but fine...

This is a great b&w. I especially like that tuft of grass showing in the middle as you go up.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Louis. That part of the staircase was my favorite part. smile
WOWZA! That's one gorgeous image!
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Robin. Thanks.
Oh I don't need to go to Heaven.
I just wanna see you at the other end. smile
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHAHAHA! Why does that crack me up?????
Absolutely love this, Ginnie. Processing well suited to the scene.
