After all the hype about the Red Moon, or bloodmoon or lunar eclipse of yesterday, the moon had quite a bit of stage-fright and didn’t really want to show itself. And when if finally did, I didn’t get the clear, sharp shots I wanted.
On the other side of the horizon however the sunset was beautiful and that did give some pretty nice shots. And it was really nice in my walk looking for the moon to see lots of cars and bikes parked next to the roads and in the fields with people all looking out for that bright red moon. Sort of a shared experience…
More photos after the break…
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

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 :)

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…
