FARM DITCHES AND MALLARDS

Biking on early winter morning. Yes, riding a bike over icy roads is a bit tough 😬. But early in the morning I looked up to the sky. It was still dark. I saw some stars "twinkling" in the crystal clear sky. Changing from red to white to blue repeatedly. Amazing. That was the moment I say to myself: you have to see the sunrise!

Even een frisse neus halen. Maar oooh, wat was het glad op sommige weggetjes. Na grijze dagen wilde ik graag een mooie zonsopkomst zien. Toen ik mijn zoon uit bed geroepen had, keek ik door het keukenraam naar buiten. Het was vroeg. Ik zag een paar sterren pinkelen aan de heldere ochtendhemel. Toen besloot ik dat ik zou gaan. Gewoon het Binnenveld in fietsen om de zon op te zien komen. Ik moest er een uurtje voor wachten -  het was nog te vroeg -  maar het was de moeite waard.

They were a bit afraid...

And... ☕ Coffee time!

    Have a wonderful evening, Aritha.

  3. Great views. Each sunrise or sunset is so different, yet so beautiful. I see Mallards around here in spring and summer.
