De Bieschbos

De Bieschbos is a nature reserve (of sorts, anyway) in the Netherlands, and a great place to boat about a little My parents, owning a modest flat-bottom boat, do so often enough. When I join them, the camera comes along.

Velcro can be stunning

Especially after morning dew, and even moreso when it's not black or white velcro. It doesn't matter what this was actually used for, it was too pretty to ignore.

A different kind of sword

This is the left sword on my parents' flat-bottom boat. Swords are the flatbottom equivalent to clubhauling - you lower one into the water, and it acts as a drastic pivot, adding massive turning power to your boat. They are also absolutely stunning to look at.

A detail shot of deck ornaments

This is a bit on the roof decking of my parents' flat-bottom boat. I have no idea what it's for, other than 'light', and frankly I think it's purely ornamental... but it looks pretty.

Horses engaged

While we were boating back to the marina, we passed a few horses bolting around their pasture. Horses are powerfully awesome. I couldn't quite figure out how to cut this image, so until I do - if ever - have the full shot.

Self portrait of a shadow

Walking along a little beach in the Bieschbos, my shadow in the shallow water was too good to pass up on. I like non-obvious self portraits.

Self portrait with more colour

When trying to get rid of the conspicuous camera-arm I got a shot with more colour gradient in the water... frankly, I didn't know which was best, so have both
