SUNRISE THROUGH REEDS

Early in the morning I cycled on a quiet country road, looking for a place to see the sun rise over the frozen meadows. It was so breathtaking! And cold, yes, because it was freezing!

Plaatjes van vorige week toen ik vroeg in de morgen het dorp uitfietste om de zon op te zien komen boven de bevroren weilanden. Het was maar tien minuten voor de fietsen. Waarom doe ik dat toch niet vaker? Het is zo mooi! En ja hoor, ik was er precies vijf minuten voordat de zon opkwam. Gaaf!


On my way home I passed the beautiful golden reeds along the roadside. The water below me in the ditch looked drab but how stunning the color of the reeds in the warm red light!

Op de terugweg kwam ik langs het riet dat mooi stond te wezen met hun wortels in een drabberig zwart water. Heel mooi zoals het gouden zonlicht er door heen speelde!
