Hello Treklens here another photo of Germany
during the last TL meet of JohnTulip and the good support of Hans Greenbaron.
Here another photo made on the day we went to Germany
by mini bus with Vassilis-Tanya,
Hans and John
Pepe(Jose) from France and myself
From The Hague to Koln it was close to 3 1/2 hours
(thanks also to the TomTom Navigation system of John)

Sitting here in a cable-car over the river Rhine I was able to make this skylight shot.

Uploading and staying in touch with TL is a bit problematic, since I realy have not the good PS program and VERY slow Internet.

I like also to salute my dear TL-meet friends and specialy Yolanda and JohnTulip; who will return today or tomorrow from the South of Spain

Warm greetings from India
( will do some critiques soon)

The world is my lobster.

Very interesting sky, Vandana. I like the subdued colours and the rays of light peering through the clouds. The skyline of Köln is a tad dark though - but I'll blame the lack of your accustomed PP software ;o).

très beaux rayons de soleil et une belle reflexion

Hi Vandana
The Rhine, a great place to visit, my wife and myself is going there at least once a year to a town called Rüdesheim, lowely place.
Your photo is great the light trough the claudes, makes the light and the mode perfect, you have as usaly done a fine job.

Hi Vandana,
Imagine that, taking time for TL when in India - good on you!
Love shot you managed from that cable car - I recognised it from Hans'posting.
Those sunrays through the clouds are amazingly beautiful and then to end in the "whole"sun reflecting in the water. Good job.
TFS and enjoy every minute you spend in India as I'm sure your family will with you present.
Take care
Ad and Els

Hi Vandana,

Hi Vandana,
Superb capture of Koln. Even if it is a night photo, it seems to me that the city has changed since I was there, it was in 1975! I think that this is quite normal ...lolll
I like the soft mood and the rays of sun. Very well done TFS

Keep enjoying your visit to India

Hello Vandana,
Beautiful view of the town ... nice sunrays through the clouds. Lovely reflections on the Rhine. I'm sure you've had a good trip with John and Hans.
Have a nice day
