THX Fred! it's been a while...
they grew up so fast... ma is obviously an experienced parent by now, such an ultra fast upbringing this time!





during (what seemed like) nothing but bright and sunny days.
quite a challenge, even at 8pm, since I hadn't been there at dawn or dusk.
harsh light + white birds. and sharpness was a bit of an issue too (because of what looks like front focusing to me? c/b me though, having used nothing but MF for 4 years in a row? :S). the only thing that seemed to 'help' was the ancient coating of old Meyer lenses, with, unfortunally, 135mm being my longest- ).

very busy



@8pm













statue 'farmer from Walcheren' in Zoutelande













spot the farmer? ;)






'proud of the farmer'
these appeared about a year ago, during the farmer's protests, hottest news before corona.
https://dutchreview.com/news/dutch/chaos-around-the-hague-as-farmers-strike-and-cause-biggest-traffic-jam-ever/
'they' are always after the farmers. not aviation is to blame for air pollution, nor traffic. the 'real hazard' are cows. and therefore farmers have to drastically cut down (i.e. halve) cattle numbers and are stimulated to stop farming. and sell their land. but the majority of the dutch supports the -dairy- farmers. (luckily, many are totally against 'mega-stables', i.e. pig- and chicken industries, which have nothing to do with 'farming' of course).   (food for thought? and again a lot of land is needed for building houses).










causing traffic jams ;)




in Werendijke

flowering field margins -1st Werendijke, 2nd Biggekerke-
when we refer to 'the island', we usually mean any place outside the municipalities of Vlissingen and Middelburg and the town of Veere.
the countryside and coastal area up north. rural, yet very touristic, especially along the coast.
in 5+ years I managed to post hardly anything that shows our island.

TYSM Paul & Fred! very much appreciated!! despite ongoing gusts of wind and butterflies 'op de bon', hardly any b.flies to be found. sorry for a late response! (am I the only one, taking (too?) many pics and then needing ages to sort them all out?). actually, we thought there would be hardly any flowering field margins this year. due to corona? it took almost an entire summer for them to become clearly visible, before they were finally in full bloom. there are many flowering field margins on the island, obviously from a simular mixture, mostly helianthus, centaurea, cosmos, zinnia, but in Werendijke I found a brilliant collection of papavers. but not after field margins this time- on a quest to finally find the flowering fields of Walcheren.

All my days I will sing in praise
Of your forest, waters,

A lovely glimpse of the fields of flowers. I especially like #3 the close up poppy filling the frame with the OOF blooms behind it.

TYSM Joe and Fred!


latest news?
as of 10 pm tonight this country goes into partial lockdown
https://www.government.nl/topics/coronavirus-covid-19/news/2020/10/13/partial-lockdown-needed-to-bring-down-infections

and a 'requiem' for the HoReCa (i.e. Hotels/Restaurants/Café's/bars) + an obituary...
(in Fred's part of the country)

due to previous corona measures the pubs and restaurants are dying, if not already deceased. they were forced to invest big time to live up to the restrictions when they were allowed to reopen in june (max. 30 customers) and now they'll have to close their doors -and terraces- again, for at least a month.
after all- the horeca (i.e. pubs / restaurants) is accountable for a dazzling 1.8% (one! point 8 percent!!) of all recent infections, (with or without complaints).


(oops, typo! requiem, not requim )
