    Hello Jean,
    The visitors seems to have little interest in this Site of Special Scientific Interest.
    The beautiful weather seems to be the big draw, although the lady with the red snorkel might want to study life underwater.
    Excellent work

    Dag John,
    De kleinere wegen zijn hier in de buurt vaak nog te glad om te fietsen dus is het beter te wandelen in het schitterende winterweer van de laatste en komende dagen.
    Definitief geen kans op een Elfstedentocht of het NK marathon schaatsen vanwege de te grote drukte die dan wordt verwacht. Veel wegen naar populaire schaatslocaties zijn al afgezet omdat iedereen op het ijs het strenge Covid-regime voor even wil vergeten.
    Groet uit een zonovergoten Haarlem met -2 ░C, Rob

    Hello Luciano,
    Indeed, an intriguing title.
    If you look at the beautiful fašade you will not see any connection with cannibalism but your info gives us the right story.
    Excellent work

    Hello Bev,
    Yesterday and today we also have this great wintry walking weather here. Few degrees below zero but plenty of sun (excellent weather for our solar panels.)
    Lovely walking with Annelies in the dunes.
    Everywhere can now be skated and roads to the favorite lakes are closed because it's getting too crowded in the present lockdown status
    Beautiful picture of the lone hiker.
    Have a good weekend, groet Rob

    Hello Gert,
    Although the clothing and environment are probably very specific to this area of India, this is a very universal photo if you look closely at the girls and their interest in colourful trinkets and the way they tell each other about it

    Dag Lars,
    Prachtig gefotografeerd waarbij je goed laat zien hoe harmonieus ouden en nieuwe architectuur kunnen samengaan. Ik heb ook al gekeken hoe ik het Dancing House het beste aan TE kan presenteren.

    Hello Silvio,
    An excellent photo of this understated interior.
    Due to the semi-circular ceiling construction instead of a vaulted construction, the ceiling seems rather low in front of a church building.
    Interesting picture.

    Hello Ike,
    A wonderful example of modern urban architecture where the architect no longer wants to place the fašades exactly vertically.
    With this fantastic evening sky it looks even more spectacular.

    Hello Pavle,
    It is clear to see that the water is higher than average.
    Of course, that gives a lot of rubbish on the shore when the water drops again.
    Nice picture. Well done

    After a lovely walk through the snowy dunes near my hometown it is good to see that it can be white also in Greece.

    Hello Kasia,
    Three beautiful photos of this spectacular landscape. Two with a sublime reflection in the smooth water.
    Personally, I had chosen Altered Image # 2 as the main photo. Such a beautiful composition with a special distribution between light and dark.

    Hello Mariusz,
    In the Netherlands we also use the expression ôde tand des tijdö. It's funny that we use this more often when something has survived the tooth of time than it has been affected by it, but both are possible.
    What is more beautiful than a sunny, windless winter morning with a few degrees of frost and the frost on the grass and the thin tree branches. The right ambiance to photograph a beautiful old English church with a cemetery.
    Excellent presentation

    Hello Jorge,
    In my experience, a sunset is a lot more popular than the sunrise.
    There seem to be more evening people than morning people.
    This beautiful photo shows that it is certainly worthwhile to get out of bed early every now and then. Excellent presentation

    Bonjour Jean,
    This plant is also found in the Netherlands and is called Herfsttijloos here. This name refers to not having any leaves at the time of flowering.
    The possible medicinal effect is mentioned, but caution is advised because the plant is also toxid. For fighting Covid, I agree with you and we better rely on the vaccine. I've to wait another month before it is my turn.
    Excellent presentation

    Hello Pavle,
    What rich decorations in this church.
    The images are religious, but very lavish.
    I imagine that when you attend a mass here you are so busy admiring all this art, you hardly hear the pastor.

    Hello Costantino,
    Photographing the forces of nature is always an exciting challenge for a photographer.
    In turbulent water you have to choose the right camera settings with extra attention to the shutter speed and you have to make sure that you do not get wet feet or a wet lens.
    Looks like you have succeeded very well.
    Well done

    Hello Ian,
    I remember when I prepared our 2019 trip that the hotels in this area were twice as expensive as 100 km away. That shows how popular this beautiful park is with tourists.
    This atmospheric photo of the hotel in the clouds shows that there is sufficient capacity.
    Well done
