Hello dear TL-friends,
In the Netherlands, the meteorological spring began on March 1.......!
If I now look out it seems autumn: gray, cold, rain and wind!
But I am full of good courage: soon it will really be spring!

With this picture I already take a foretaste of the coming summer.....and of course to forget soon this bad day!

This picture was made in Singapore, in particular on Sentosa island: a delicious island in the sun!

Let the sun shine in your hearts!

Greetings from Zeeland, Netherlands,

artistic capture of landscape nice light great depth good POV.beautiful frame

Hi Adri,
Great example of using the circuar polarizer for a beach shot. It gave us fantastic sky tones, beautiful, fresh green colour on the palm trees and correctly exposed clouds. Perfect summer mood (just like on my post today:)).
Best regards,

Oooooh, wat mooi!!!

A marvellous shot!! Those palmtrees are so sharp! A very beautiful scenery!!!

Well done, Adri.

Volgens mij heb je zoveel foto's in voorraad, dat je voor een heel TL jaar genoeg hebt. Prachtig hoor!!


Very beautiful,
Clean and Clever shot.

I am bit disappointed with the Cropped leaves on the top.
Except that everything is great.

Hoi Adri,

Prachtig zeg! heel mooi vastgelegd. Wat een kleuren en wat scherp!
Mooi dat strand, de palmen, de horizon met al die schepen, laat de drankjes maar komen!
groetjes, Marga

Lovely Adri - and you get the bonus of the oil tankers that I didn't have in Zanzibar ;)

Nice compo and excellent sharpness...


Hallo ouwe. (zie dat je 3 maanden NOG ouder ben dan ik)!
Prachtige foto, heerlijk om naar te kijken op deze regenachtige dag.
Ja, de boten welke daar elke dag buitengaats liggen te wachten is altijd een schittered gezicht.
Ik heb er wel eens 40 geteld, als we na het werk op het 'Shell eiland' (pulau Bukum) met the hoovercraft terug kwamen op het main Island.
Congratulations with this beauty, Adri.
Een plaatje om groot aan de muur te hangen.
Groeten van Jan

Hi Adri

That's exactly the idea of a good holiday in the prolonged European winter. Is is a sight for sore eyes :))) Wonderful place well framed with the palm trees rendering a shadow and the cloudy sky behind is an asset to it.

Heb thuis nog oude boeken over Singapore in de jaren 1900-1960s en toen waren er nog volop van dit soort stranden,dit ziet er ook nog geweldig uit,mooi Adri.
A...Zeeland is ook mooi hoor.



Hoi Adri,
