Oh! This is just gorgeous! You've captured this so beautifully!! You and Ginnie have outdone yourselves today, and yours is going to make Frank cry (he'll explain...)
Picturit: Thank you so much, Elizabeth. The day that I make Frank crying, that will be the day.... This morning was just beautiful. The fog lasted not long, the sun was too strong and it turned out to be a fabulous day. Cold and crisp.
that is a long and pleasant bike ride, Astrid. i hope you are well wrapped up too.
Picturit: It is a great distance for just a morning and have things done in the afternoon. I have special gloves, very thin but warm and a nice warm wrap for under my helmet. The next thing I will buy is some special "over-shoes" that I can wear over my cycling shoes. I might do that on Wednesday. I don't mind the cold, I just make sure I don't stop too long for taking pictures smile.
Très belle ambiance brumeuse.
Picturit: Thank you kindly, Martine.

I looks worth getting up early for, Astrid.
Picturit: I will show on Wednesday what I saw one hour later, it is just amazing how fast fog can go away.
love morning fog!
Picturit: I love morning fog too, Ryan. As long as it is not dangerous for traffic...

Quick - that pylon is falling over Astrid!
Picturit: I know, Chris. I wonder what made it be like that. I will pay attention to it, the next time I am there.
I absolutely love this, Astrid, and am thrilled that you keep doing these bike rides, even in the cold weather.
Picturit: Thank you, Ginnie. You know that I kind of have it into a science going out in the cold and be comfortable. I love these rides and it keeps me in shape....
Wouah , superbe !!
Picturit: Thank you, Claudine.
I love morning like these.
A perfect start to the day Lady P. Lovely picture
Picturit: I think so too, Bill. I love riding the bike and see things like this.
Oh...hadden jullie mist ?
Hier waen er 2 glasheldere dagen.
Maar wat een mooie mysterieuze foto door en van de Biesbosch.
Prachtig en sfeervol
Picturit: Heel even maar, maar net genoeg voor wat foto's met de mist. Dit zijn de uiterwaarden van de Merwede, woensdag heb ik een foto van in de Biesbosch, glashelder en gewoon windstil, heel bizar, vooral in de buurt van de Moerdijkbruggen.
Dit zijn de betere ritjes wink.

I can just imagine how mouth watering this scene that greeted you must have been Astrid.
Picturit: Chad, I was just smiling on the bike. This is so good for the soul, mind and the body.
Wow, that's a beautiful scene Astrid..........looking at this I think I should concentrate on some B&W smile
Picturit: It almost was already B&W but to make it B&W made it a little better.
Sometimes I really like B&W. Just give it a try, Martin.
The mood and atmosphere in this picture is terrific Astrid, I don't think I've ever cycled 33 miles in one go in my life.
Picturit: Thank you, Brian. I was just lucky that I had the last 30 minutes of the fog. Wednesday I show a picture from one hour later. Brian, my goal for next year is a longer trip and I go by some big bridges. I keep in shape this way. And so much fun. I do this alone and I just love it.
What a pretty scene. We get mist and fog so rarely. It truly sets a mood.
Picturit: I so love mist/fog, as long as it is not dangerous for traffic. It indeed sets a mood, Mary.

What a view and an excellent capture.
Picturit: Thank you, Louis. Wednesday I will post a picture taken one hour later...
Oh how magical this is!!! Friendship
Picturit: Thank you so much, Ruthie.
Have a wonderful day.

This is wonderful. I love the misty black and white. It really pulls together nicely.
Picturit: Thank you, Beth. Somebody said that mist is timeless, so true.

een schitterende foto met die nevel Astrid

bravo !

en 52 km, zou niets voor mij zijn...

Picturit: Dank je wel, Willy. Ik denk dat jij erg ver en lang kan lopen. Ik wil in het voorjaar een wat langere tocht maken (iets meer dan het dubbele) en dan over de Moerdijkbruggen fietsen. Ik vind het altijd leuk om een doel te hebben.
Nog een fijne avond.
Beautiful and timeless, Astrid.
Picturit: Thank you, Tom. Yes, indeed timeless is the right word.
A lovely photo Astrid.What Elizabeth means is I was so frustrated on a drive north to see my son on Sunday, it was just like this, frost in the trees, cloud inversions in the valleys, low cloud on the fell tops, and bright sunshine...And I couldn't take any photo's....:-(
Picturit: Thank you, Frank. I so understand your frustration and I know what you feel. It is almost T H E perfect circumstances and you cannot stop. I sometimes have that too here with a low mist over the rivers.... so I was so happy that I was on the bike and I always have my camera with me. Congratulations on your son, I hope you had a good day with your son.
Have a good evening.
Beautiful? Fabulous is a better word.
Picturit: Thank you very much, Michael for your kind words.
