"Water Surfing in the ASM." Arnhem, Holland.

It's such a low tide here on the Rhine, even little harbours
are drying up. Looks like a tidal harbour which is fine by
me because you don't see boats on dry land that much
over here.

these two guys make all the best of this exceptional condition
the little stream is all that's left of what was a big harbour
entrance. In the back you can see one of the two main bridges
Arnhem has got that goes over the Rhine.

René good work congratulations. Light out there have to be very different from ours, to capture the color, where the light is gray but has to be quite difficult, at least from here.
