Sail 2015 (2)

The sky had that special 17th century painters quality for which holland is famous.

If you liked you could make a fly over with an old dakota. At home I saw that the propellors stood still but afterwards it seems that a shutter time of 1/4000 is enough to stop them.

Yes everything that could float was floating . Shot taken from the ferry, normally a 5 min trip with a waiting time of 7 min, but now more then 1½ hour waiting and crossing. One for skywatch friday here.

  6. I like those old turbo prop airplanes. But not all those boats. Way too many. How do they keep from running into each other?

  9. Quite the rush hour traffic out there. The older ships are definitely a nice compliment to the skies.

  10. I thought the same thing about your first photo before I read your note. It continues in your culture and maybe your genes.

  11. Nice evaluation of the shutter-speed needed to 'stop' the propellers!
