Queen Maxima's birthday

The Sint-Maartenskerk in the city of Tiel with the Dutch flag hanging out. It was Queen Máxima's birthday you know... I love the blue sky behind it.


VLAG UIT! 
De vlag uit op de verjaardag van koningin Maxima. Mijn man maakte er een mooie foto van. Altijd leuk, zulke foto's.





This St. Maartenskerk (church of St. Martin) is very old. It has a long history of changes and rebuilts.Its oldest parts date from the 9th century. The church was built in no less than eleven stages, spread out over seven centuries. I love the (little bit) leaning tower.

MOOI OUD
Deze kerk is een monument. Het is een onvoltooide laatgotische kruiskerk, bestaande uit een schip met klokkentoren en een losstaande sacristie. De klokkentoren is van tufsteen. De kerk raakte tijdens de bevrijding door beschietingen vanaf de overzijde van de Waal zwaar beschadigd.Na de oorlog is de kerk gerestaureerd. Ik vind het een mooi oude gebouw.

  10. A beautiful old church and the first shot looks as if it's being hugged by greenery. Wasn't there just a prince or king's birthday over there?
