Mostly photography, with the occasional philosophical contemplation

“The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why it is called the present.”
ALICE MORSE EARLE

first heard this quote in the movie Kungfu Panda. Today could be replaced by this very moment.. is there any other moment than this present one? 

wish you all a lovely weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

Lake Reflections

Hilgelo met Riet en molen

The clouds reflect on themselves
As they drift off in the evening sky
Contemplating their existence
They’re sure to vanish in thin air

The water is receptive to all
View and motion touching
Its surface while the deep
Remains still and unmoved

The mill stands proud
As a tiny point in history
She carries the past in her bones
Long gone on this present day

Standing on the shore of the lake
I see that natural and man-made
Are not so different after all as
Each is contained in the flow of life

Stonehenge.. what a sight! And what a busy sight lol.. it was crowded when we got there, understandable since the weather was absolutely perfect.. yet i managed to make a pic where i only had to remove 2 persons from the side of the picture.. didnt look that way when we got there ๐Ÿ™‚

So i did a little bit of mixing up.
First one is Stonehenge in color, background b&w
Second one is Stonehenge in b&w, background in color
Third one is Stonehenge and background in b&w
Fourth one is Stonehenge and background in color

I was wondering.. which one has your preference? Let me know what you think!

A detail of the Avebury Stonecircle. This one is probably larger in total size than Stonehenge and has a unique feature: the town of Avebury lies within the stonecircle area.. there is actually a couple of roads which cross the stonecircle ๐Ÿ™‚
