Quel beau ciel, très photogénique.
Picturit: Thank you, Martine. It is always a pleasure to be in the harbour.
Oh - love those heavy clouds, and all the cranes reaching up to them!
Picturit: Thank you, Elizabeth. We so loved the boat-tour through the harbour, more to come.
It was that kind of wonderful day, Astrid. The sky was a fabulous backdrop against all those cranes. I love it.
Picturit: It was the perfect day to celebrate your birthday, Ginnie. Cranes all over the place to salute you smile
Magnifique prise de vue ..Merci
Picturit: Harbours and all what comes with it never bores us, Claudine. And many photo-ops of course.

Picturit: I am looking out of the window all day, Chris. what else is there to do grin...

Oh I remember the Astrid building in Rotterdam, perfect for Black Monday.
Picturit: Thank you, Chad. Yep, I took over the building... The sky became more blue while we were there. More pictures to come.

Love the brooding clouds especially those over the Astrid building. 😊
Picturit: We started out with a lot of clouds and later the sky became blue, Alan. I "took over" the building.
I bought a polarizing filter in the USA and I am still experimenting with it, thanks to you!!
Have a great trip in France.
Very moody and scenic. Ginnie must have been in crane heaven!
Picturit: Thank you, Larry. It was Ginnie's birthday that day and yes she loved seeing the many many cranes.
Mooi zo in zwart-wit uitgevoerd.
En je naam past geweldig in die omgeving ;-0
Picturit: Dank je wel, Marjolein. Dat was een mooie tocht met de "Spido" en ja ik heb dat gebouw maar "overgenomen"... grin.

So black, and a low sky!
Picturit: Don't you just love it?
Sometimes I have to go for the dark mood...

Knap gedaan. I like the relations of water : buildings : sky. All the cranes reaching up, are like eager chicks in a nest.
Picturit: Dank je wel, Louis. You have a wonderful way of putting it into words!! I juts read it to Ginnie. Love it.
Not only a fine industrial landscape but a very good sky to go with it.
Picturit: Thank you, Brian, more picture to come. It was a wonderful tour.
i like your signature in this one Astrid... Ginnie loves cranes doesn't she....petersmile
Picturit: She loves cranes, in that regard she was on the front row HA.
Yes, I "took over the building"... grin

quite a scene that you captured here, Astrid. and in b/w it gives a strong impression of the early days of industrial revolution.
Picturit: Going towards the harbour is so nice. We took the short tour of 75 minutes, totally worth it. And yes B&W adds more drama to it.
You are not kidding, Astrid!
Picturit: Don't you just love it.
(Don't tell anybody wink I am experimenten with a new toy, a polarizing filter, I asked Alan once and he told me about it. I bought one in the USA)
That looks great in black and white.
Picturit: Sometimes I love to do B&W and change the mood of the picture.

What a sky! B/W very effective here.
Picturit: Thank you, Bonnie. We started out with a cloudy morning and during the trip the sky became blue and almost no clouds.
Now that's a lot of cranes! Love your name placement!
Picturit: Indeed, Robin. We both love cranes and I "took" over the building grin...
