This week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge is #206 ‘Treasures’. Life deserves to be treasured as it rolls out with us on our journey through our years. Lots of change happens during that trip. One of The Netherlands most wonderful features is the low horizon. Meaning we have so much sky, as a giant canvas to show clouds and patterns. The flat horizon does not attract too much attention, just offers some texture to the straight line. Showing the changes over the years as urbanization and commercial estates grow.
Overtaking a farmer in a field next to the motorway. The Netherlands is as flat as a pancake here, and imagine a sea level about six meters higher than where we are. Well we are used to it. Lens Artists Photo Challenge #203 for this week is ‘local vistas’.
At times the incoming traffic for Schiphol gets annoying. Especially when it is cloudy. The limit for approach is 600 feet here. They do create graphic images at time. That is a small benefit.

mLens artists photo challenge #199 is ‘mechanical/industrial’. I have a soft spot for planes coming over against the backdrop of the sky.
North West winds mean a lot of planes coming in over our house. Every 90 seconds. Between 1000 and 800 feet, making their approach on Schiphol, 20 kilometers away. The sound is annoying at times, but they do deliver nice images.
