We did not have a lot of Summer yet, grey and wet, cold weather so far.
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 #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?
