I took this earlier today, at the moment the rain is pouring down...

So, those are the famous Mountains of Wageningen, eh?

Beautiful pic, Hans! Thanks for sharing it.

The slight rise on the left is the slope of Wageningen Mountain :grin:
What you see to the right are just trees.

Hans,

Is there a walking path? There appears to be someone walking with a dog. I can't tell if it is a bike or walking path.

It's a public footpath; dogs are allowed on a leash.

I might use that as a desktop picture today. Much brighter than the view out my window, which is solid grey.

Quite so. You'd have thought he'd have photoshopped the image to include the third!

I've got a better idea. If you could take a square crop from it, print it out at 120 cm by 120 cm and then post it to me, I could stick it over the window whenever it was grey and miserable outside. That would improve the view no end.

If only! It would be nice to have panoramic window :smile: but :sad: it's only an average sized bedroom window of just over a metre square.
:whisper: hence I asked for a square crop from the image

If I squint carefully then I think I can see, in the distance, that the picture includes a horse, and a rider with a crop

Hi Ken
Great minds think alike.
20200629_114420 [640x480].jpg
Two days ago I finally got rid of the oil tank, making my yard and house look pretty when I am sitting by the barbecue pit waiting for the sausages to cook.
My long-term plan is to enlarge the six windows and add six more. That little window in the bedroom boosted the room temperature to 20c over this winter; the thermostat cut out the 500w heater during the day. Hence the plan to enlarge it and mount a super-size window in the (as yet) unheated kitchen.
I suggested to a neighbour that I was so excited at the prospect that I'd pedal up to the Dollar Store and buy a Sharpie-marker to draw the window with a dotted line across the plastic siding.
20200629_114358.jpg
Neighbour said I was such a computer whizz I should take a photo of the yard from where the oil tank used to be, print it out, and have it stuck to my interior kitchen wall.
When he said "stuck", I thought of course, of whether you would like the contract which would involve several images, one for when I'd put on the sausages, one for when they needed turning, ...
Cheers
Chris

Sheesh Stuart! That's one heck of a squint you got to see that! :laugh:
