"Beside the water." Holland.

Between the showers i managed to do this one.
It's hard to get the light right when it's moving so fast!
The one minute your in full Sunshine the next
your soaking wet from heavy rain.

AVR. "Altijd Vrolijke Rook." Holland.

AVR, it's the letters for Afval Verwerking Rijnmond for real.
But i call it Altijd Vrolijke Rook. (Always happy smoke.)

As you can see, there is always a nice plume of
smoke coming out of this garbage furnace. Sometimes
it's soo beautiful against the black/blue sky.
especially when the Sun is very low.
