Harbours or more rewarding than ports. The sailboats I came across in marinas are all in good nick and that stands for clean pictures. The water in ports is also murkier and often polluted with oil. It wouldn't be too difficult to fill an entire page with these reflections.

Patterns made by wind

Famara is my fave beach in this respect. The east coast is always windy and in spite of the fact that every day the dunes are 'spoilt' by people making shortcuts, the wind sees to it the day after the dunes look pristine again.

The elephant

Earlier I must have confided in you, apologies if you read this for the umpteenth time, that I'm one of those people who 'see things' in the bark of trees. For me this image is an elephant, but if you insist it is a whale or a dolphin, I won't hand in a motion of censure.

Rock man

There's a small grove nearby my holiday rental home where local stonemasons used to get their material from to build houses. I see a man with a cap on and a cigarette dangling form his mouth.

Autumn in Utrecht

Easy one: autumn leaves in one of the canals in Utrecht, just opposite 'Tante Sien' for those who know the place.

The Voorlinden Museum in Wassenaar is one of our favourites. It's a privately funded museum and that in itself makes it special. Collections are changed a few times per year and the artists are renowned.

La Palma

That La Palma is a volcanic island is something you cannot escape from, wherever you are on the island. Here the coast leaned back a bit so from a steps down to the ocean near Puntagorda I could look back and take this pic. An enormous eruption causing a quarter of the land sliding into the sea accounted for a chemical process, hence the 'unnatural' colours.
