By the light of the moon
When the night holds the secrets
Of the sleepy lagoon
I’m contemplating moonlight
On the water
When I’m walking with you
On an evening in June
(Van Morrison / On an evening in June)
It was visible only shortly, but there was a huge rainbow over Assen today…
A very happy 2018 to you all! May it bring love, happiness, joy, fortune, great music and lots and lots of photos :)
Click any of the images for the full set and I hope to bring you many more galleries in this fresh and new year.
We’ve had code orange and code red in the Netherlands all day, warnings to go home on time, to not go out on the road if it’s not really necessary and a record length in traffic-jams. All in all that was a bit much for what little snow we had in the North of the Netherlands, but it did make for a nice view: Snowy wintery landscapes!
I was cycling into the center of Assen and saw these clouds and they got to me. I don’t know why, but every time I see clouds like these, I am reminded of art. The old Dutch landscapes to be precise. There’s something like pure art in clouds…
For the expositions in the Drents Museum in Assen there is often an accompanying piece of art at the canal. A few days ago ‘The American Dream’ opened as an exposition showing American Realism art from 1945 to 2017. For this exposition the accompanying art at the canal is… the Statue of Liberty, posted on rock resembling the Hunebed rocks, linking the Statue of Liberty to Drenthe.
I was walking home tonight and saw how incredibly gorgeous the sky looked. Sometimes you can only look in awe at nature…
‘Cause every time it rains,
You’re here in my head,
Like the sun coming out–
Ooh, I just know that something good is going to happen.
And I don’t know when,
But just saying it could even make it happen.
