    i agree with the others replies Paul,i specially like the ''purple'' one.

    i went and hoped for a red sunrise with dew over the land and canal,
    to late for that no red sun or dew on that time.

    so i'll have to do it with this.
    (the second morning with out long weekend morningsleep ruiend)



    well ,a orange sky and a little dew,but not enough

    sunrise over the ''bergsche maas''.

          Paul, that is a really dramatic picture of the Wolds sunset, beautifully captured. Then followed by your Morton Corner, the silhouettes against the gentler sky - and I love the light on the water in the further reach of the river. I agree, you can never weary of scenes in that area, judging by those you have shown.

            Thijs, I'm glad you dragged yourself out of bed for these shots.
            What is that post with the radiating wires(?) in the first one?
            I like the light on the swirl of the current in each photo. This is a lovely series of sunrise pics., leading up to the dramatic explosion of the sun from above the cloudbank. Then, in the last scene, suddenly everything is calm - the day is set to begin.

              a ships radar reflector,rader can't ''see'' concrete or some other objects,by placing a reflector on them the radar see them easier.

              talking about a explosion,i was standing on the bridge and a 2 trucks are cooming up, (on eastern sunday morning) so i set the camera and suddenly a explosion right above the golden tulip hotel of s'Hertogenbosch ,so it seems.
              i'm waiting on the news what they say over it,meanwhile you can look for another hotel,or shal i ask if Ralf's B&B is available .

                Not entirely correct, radar can see concrete but from a distance a low bridge will show up as a line across the river.
                The Reflector is there to indicate the position of the support below the bridge.

                  okay thanks for clearing that out,but when he can see the bridge,can he make a differend then between the reflector and the concrete.

                      I'll have the B&B, then I shall see how the horse-neighbour got on.

                        Radars have a fairly wide angle in the vertical plan to allow for pitch and trim, but very narrow angle in the horizontal plan to get accurate direction of the echo.
                        As said, a bridge will show up as a line on the radar screen, therefore it does not "see" the difference between the horizontal bridge bed and the supports from a distance.

                        If the support is rounded, or especially if it has a sharp edge, it will not be showing up at all due to deflection, even at close range. The radar reflector will appear as an echo in front of the bridge, however, to let the position of the supports be known, even in dense fog. A very smart device to cut down on collisions with bridges, which still happen all too often.
