Photography Friday

Can you believe it? It's time for another Photography Friday! I try to do one every two weeks and it amazes me how fast the time goes. It also always amazes me how many pictures I take in two weeks. I'm always seeing something.

So without further ado, here's some shots of the past two weeks.

A tree tunnel.

Spring blossoms. So pretty.

Working on the Sketchbook Challenge of April. Yes, I'm late, very late.

I love how green everything is becoming. Such fresh newness.

Same thing around the pond. Green has so many shades.

On the edge of the forest, a view over the dunes.

Fascinated by how these pines made a drawing against the sky.  I might sketch this some day.

Close up of pine cones in the making.

A dandelion passed it's prime and still so beautiful.

On a wet day this felt like a rain forest to me.

The colours become so sharp and clear. People were complaining about the wet weather, but I loved it.

The local church through some fresh greens.

Sketchbook bliss!

Leeuwarden, where I went shopping.

Oh studio, how I love thee!

A well rooted tree.

My assistant being in the way as usual. See that green stripe on his face? That's from a crayon!

Eventually the sun did come through and gave the island some warmth.

Hope you enjoyed this little view in what I come across in my day to day explorations.

Today is a bit of a historic day. It's my last day as a full time employee. Come next week I'll be a part timer and have three day work weeks and four day weekends every week! I can't believe this is really happening, but it is. So happy!

Wishing you all a wonderful and artsy weekend!
