Yesterday was an exceptional day for photography.
It started with a nice foggy sunset and ended with a somwhat foggy sunset.

I just had to stop on my way to work a few times. Fortunately I have sort of flexible working hours and a fair bit of autonomy over my schedule

#5 - wonderful symmetry and reflection with the fog adding substantially - simple, clean, moody, very, very nice.

Wow, that fog and position of the Sun was very cooperative. That's a great set of shots.

The standouts for me are shots 4-6. Shot 4 has a good foreground element with the plant to anchor the shot, and give it even more depth. You get a nice contrast between the clear foreground and background.

Shot 5 for the reflection and just sheer symmetry of the photo makes this a standout also.

Shot 6 has great leading lines, and tells a bit more of a story with the car on the road as well.

Wonderful scenes, beautifully photographed and presented, Fred.
All most appealing, but my favourite has to be #6, with 2, 4 , 7 and 8 close behind.
TFS.

A set of magical images, Fred! Must have been a joyful outing with your camera!

I am with Joe in picking #6 as my top favorite - it's an image of its own kind by inviting the "imagination" of a whole story!

TFS!

Thanks all! It was a real joy indeed, it felt like a magical moment. I almost forgot the time (and arrived at work even a bit later than I thought ),

Beautiful shots, Fred! The first one deserves a large frame on the wall.

The 28-200 seems to punch well above its weight class.
More Dyxumer, less photographer.

Great images, and as you say, what a day.
To which we might add, what a photographer!

Indeed Sashi. It was my first go with the lens, but I like it a lot.

Indeed a magical series Fred, both the first series as well as the second. From the second I really like #10. Is that a pyramid or a farm?

And I agree on the lens, best superzoom I've owned and even better then many zooms with a smaller range.

All are "wow" type pics. It is really hard to pick a favourite one. Conclusion: I have to like them all. And I do like them all. TFS.

Thanks Pieter. #10 is a farm behind the dike of the Noordhollands Kanaal. Typical polder view
