I can see fishing is a popular thing to do in the Netherlands as it is in Canada!

Hello Riet,
What beautiful water scenes. Looks very cold, but lovely.

Judith said...

wonderful photos again Riet - there's something soothing about just gazing at rivers/ponds/lakes the sea

Sylvia K said...

Marvelous photos as always, Riet! And how beautiful your world is! One thing that seems to be common to many countries is fishing!! Have a great week!

Wonderful photos of a mighty river! That span of water looks as big as an ocean...how wonderful it is to spend time on its banks...

Simply Heather said...

Riet, don't you just love capturing the water in a photograph? That boat is huge!

Very nice.

Louise said...

Wow! That grass is GREEN! Love the close-up of the water.

I just love reminders of the Netherlands like this. It is such a beautiful place with such wonderful people. I'll get back more often.

I recently took some photos of a lady who is dying of Cancer. Her parents are from the Netherlands and she is so proud of her heritage. Her house is full of wonderful reminders. If you happen to drop by the blog and see the post called Tragedy? and look close you may be able to see that the man's tie is covered with wooden shoes. There is a huge basket of wooden shoes by the front door and I could go on and on. I love to visit them.

I love seeing pictures of Holland - my ancestors are from there and I have always wanted to visit!

Another great post, the ship and the fisherman, you have certainly caught the different size there!! I love sitting by water, so peaceful and you have captured that as always in your photographs. Jackie.

Hoi Riet, fijne foto's, ik hou van water, wij zitten graag aan de waterkant te mijmeren.

Hazel said...

Big river indeed it looks like an ocean. I love the way you captured the water.

Wolynski said...

Beautiful, especially the little fisherman and the big ship.

Regina said...

Beautiful world!
Great shots dear Riet.

Hi Riet
Great photo of the fisherman. He looks like he's asleep. I like that you have included some branches in the corner... A nice contrast between the foreground where it's peaceful, and the background of a big commercial-looking ship.

Looks like a nice spot to be... if it's not to cold :)

Jossie said...

Weer mooie foto's Riet. Jij woont in een waterrijk gebied. Is het de IJssel?

Pam said...

The fisherman seem to be napping while he waits for a fish to bite. Nice shots of the large ship and the river.

Hebben enn geweldig dag, Riet.

Gattina said...

Beautiful pictures ! My son lives in Amsterdam together with his dutch "wife", I love the Grachten there !

Tineke said...

Mooi, die stoere rivieren van ons hè? We zouden niet zonder kunnen. Ik niet tenminste. Mag ik eens vragen.... zat de visser te dutten of keek ie zo ingespannen naar zijn dobber? ;-)

Anna said...

leuk dat je af en toe ook mijn blog bezoekt, ik kom ook regelamtig even hier kijken, maar laat eigenlijk nooit een reactie achter!!!
misschien telt 't hetzelfde voor jou!?
gr. en je maakt zekers hele mooie foto's ..
is altijd weer genieten

Karen said...

I found your blog through Scott Law's blog. I've been browsing through your photos and love them!!! I'm always interested in viewing other people's photoblogs for inspiration, especially other womens. And it's even more rare if they are 'mature' women! (I'm on the other side of 60!) I think we are very under represented. Don't know if there are fewer older woman photographers, or if we are less computer literate or what. Anyway, I'll keep stopping by!

Tes said...

Oh Riet, this is so serene. It feels me with peace just looking at this picture. Thank you for sharing! :)

Dirkjogt said...

Weer mooie beelden, vooral de eerste spreekt me erg aan.

James said...

Hi Riet. The one with the fisherman and the big ship is my favorite. :)

Watery Wednesday and My World Tuesday make me long to go to the beach! I can't stay away too long anyway, it just brings me peace, much like the fisherman.

Liz said...

I love the contrast of the huge tanker and the little fisherman!!
