Sunday morning stormy weather

Even keeping the camera straight while standing on the balcony was difficult because of the storm. Not even half-an-hour later the rain came.
The camera is still at macro. Sometimes I forget to reset it.

Secret passage

On the walls in the maze of twisted passages all alike there is a map. Possibly it shows the way out of the colossal cave. I remember something about releasing the canary from it's cage?

Trilok Gurtu's drumkit

Before Trilok Gurtu sat behind his drumkit to play with the Jan Garbarek group, the audience waited.

Actually, Trilok Gurtu and the piano-player were the stars of the evening. They outplayed the others, including Jan Garbarek himself, who appeared not inspired. They were all shoegazers and didn't make contact with each other or the audience. Except the piano-player, a German whose name I didn't catch.

Out at the Noordkaap area near Roodeschool the windmills disappeared in the mist. At the top-level the sun shone bright. This one was more visible than the others.

A red sunset, a smoke cloud from the sugar factory and upcoming fog. Ingredients of the view in the direction of Gravenburg.

While a truck drives past the Hooihuis becomes more visible. The fog seems to be lifting this way. Towards the south it is still very thick.

This figure inside the Gasunie building reminded me of a Chinese character.
Maybe she is a misfit within this remarkable design but she is a beautiful misfit.

Here in Diepholz in Germany tens of thousands of cranes stop for some time on their trek. Alas, it also attracts many viewers who scare away the birds.
