I like the boats in the foreground, and the way the cloudy sky sets off the spire.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Red Pen. It was our last view of the church before leaving town. What a way to go!

Looks like an interesting church with that unconventional steeple.

I'd like to know what that big brown fin on the boat is. Surely not a rudder in that location?
Ginnie Hart: I'd like to know, too, Martin. I don't have a clue. Maybe Astrid can tell us?
Hi! Ginnie! Here I am! Been I have separated days. Very I am occupied and also a little " cansado". The two together things have caused that there are been " off line" Â… butÂ… You have already returned from Australia? I will see your blog! A great hug and a kiss!
Ginnie Hart: It's so good to see you again, José-Angel. Welcome back. I've missed you!
Yaeeeeeeh! Ginniiiieeeee e. The boats stole the shoe and left the church in the shade. cool
Ginnie Hart: I could spot you in a crowd, Busola! grin

Love the fore ground,interesting that the spire of the church looks so different to the rest.I like it
Ginnie Hart: It almost looks like an afterthought, Vintage, doesn't it! Thanks.

The structures are amazing, but in this one the boats capture my attention. They're so unlike anything I've seen in person. A lovely shot.
Ginnie Hart: This was the only place where we got a good view of the church that day, Sherri, so I just decided to leave the boats in! They captivated me as well!

Beautiful!
Church must be a bit of a heavy load for that poor boat, though.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I'm quite sure you're right, Ray! smile

What a gorgeous scene you have laid out here, Ginnie! Very dramatic.
Ginnie Hart: A lot going on here, I know, Kay. It was our only good view of the church that day, so it was take it or leave it. It ended up being pretty dramatic for me, too. Thanks.
A delightful shot Ginnie. The foreground is delightful & the sjy perfect
Ginnie Hart: And you're a sweetheart, Chris! smile
lke ciel va bientôt faire tomber des trombes d'eau.
très belle photo
Ginnie Hart: Thank you most kindly, O-P!
It is beautifully framed by the boats.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.

An excellently composed pic with a nice view of the dominating St. Walburgiskerk! But one of the leading role is always playing the Dutch sky (or as Wim would say 'de prachtige wolkenluchten'wink!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Philine! I can never get away from 'de prachtige wolkenluchten.' Thank you!

There are so many varied examples of Gothic, Ginnie. Wonderful.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, there are, Chad, and this is one of them! Thanks.

A dominant looking church Ginnie... I love the sheen from the water on the front of the boatsmile Gives it a glossy look.
My kinda place.Great postcard shotsmile
Ginnie Hart: That glossy sheen was one of my favorite things in this image,Tracy, so leave it to you to mention it! Yes, this is definitely you kind of place.
Very nice composition Ginnie. The church comes out nicely on this beautiful sky. I like the foreground!
Ginnie Hart: It was such a splendid day and POV for this grand church, Richard. Thank you.

Prachtige wolken luchten, we were lucky...this is a postcard.
It was late in the afternoon when we stopped at this harbour, we just wanted to see if we could take at least 'one' picture of the church, we were more than half an hour clicking away here tonguetongue and just enjoying the magnificent view, thanks for the great remembrance.
Ginnie Hart: We had all the time in the world at that moment, Astrid, while the sun was going down. It really was very magical. We really were and are very lucky to have these times of remembrance!
Another great sky to set this picture off Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: You know me well, Bill. I'm such a glutton for Holland's skies. Thanks.

It is nice to see this city, I live in Holland but have never been there
Ginnie Hart: That's how it often happens, Chantal! Other people, tourists, are the ones who see the things in our own backyard. Maybe one day you can see this fine city.

Lots to look at here. Love that sky Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: There's almost too much to see, Aussie, but it was screaming out to be captured! Thanks.
So much to look at here.
Ginnie Hart: I know, Mary. It's almost overwhelming!

A strange and unusual extension to the tower on this church Ginnie. A bit of 'middle ages' oneupmanship perhaps ;o)
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Mike. I agree. Thanks.

Laughing at Ray's comment. If you ever see those brown fins in action, be sure to snap away! Very nice combination of elements here.
Ginnie Hart: This is when I need Astrid to tell me what they are used for, Ruth! Thanks.

What a fantastic image (will I have to say this everytime I pop over to your blog? smile). There's a lot of wonderful detail going on between the horizontal boats and the vertical up, up, up of the houses and the church. Call me crazy, but there really is something to the northern european light!
Ginnie Hart: You sure know how to make my day, Karima. Thank you kindly!

Nice framing, and the ships in the foreground making good contrast. I like skys with clouds, nice capture Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Skies with clouds have so much personality, Klaus! smile Thanks.
That tower looks like a voyage of discovery for the designers of it. A voyage on the boat would be much more my cup of tea. richard
Ginnie Hart: So many "voyages" to discover, Richard, and so hard to pick which ones. But yes, I agree about the voyage on the boat. That would be delightful right about now! smile

great contrast, I like this atmospher. excellent shot!
Ginnie Hart: I love that atmosphere, Arash! Thanks.
Is there such a thing as a canalscape Ginnie, if so this would be one of the best. Love everything about this, great tower on the church, please say you took that on its own.
Ginnie Hart: You know how to make my day, Brian. Thank you!

Beautiful town's picture with the typical dutch boat in front. The boats do make great pictures under sail.

Yes that is a big church
Ginnie Hart: This is why I have fallen in love with Holland, Louis!

I like a lot the presence of the boat in the foregrond. That seems to be a nice church!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Still.

I like that you have placed the tower in middle of the pic smile
Ginnie Hart: Awww. Your opinion matters to me, Aksel. Thanks.
