In the garden, Summer is quite wet at the moment.
The theme for this week Lens-artists challenge #155 is ‘on the water’.
Probably not exactly as John intended but here is some water: rain drops.
The theme for his week Lens-artists challenge #150 is ‘Let’s go wild’.
The Netherlands does not really have original wild parts where nature still rules; we do have nature, but nature is being managed. We manage and maintain our dense populated country all over, to achieve efficiency (the post stamp like farm fields, outlined by straight canals from the sky, a view tourists seem to enjoy approaching Schiphol Airport etc) or benefits of scale and standardization. But not all can be controlled. One thing we have to adjust to and have no control over is the weather and the effects of climate change. Spring was very wet and had heavy showers. We can manage the extra water and rising sea levels, but the intensity of the rain is a more and more a given.
The theme for his week Lens-artists challenge #148 is ‘spots and dots’. This Spring is cold and wet, with grey skies and gusts of rain. So far.

The theme for his week Lens-artists challenge #145 is ‘getting to know you’. In Spring work on the garden starts, to prepare for Summer and warmer weather, outside dining and cooking, relaxing in the sun, reading a book. Flowers through a rainy window after the sun comes out again.
The theme for his week Lens-artists challenge #145 is ‘getting to know you’. A phenomenon I know my entire life is the weather. However, it still has it surprises, ice rain on a Spring Day?
The 137th Weekly Lens Artists Challenge is about ‘soft’.
Soft rain aka drizzle.
