      and this is what i got,2 images.

          for those who think it's a mes in the ****pit/bridge/driversplace,remember this is the first splashbus,the prototype.
          buti havn't seen the upfollowing busses,so i don't know how they look inside.

                  a little gap,the ss''Rotterdam'' just at the left side.
                  between the buildings on the oppesit side,some of the spottingplaces.



                  30/35 kilometers from here,the Nordsea,so we're looking east.

                    Oh, but what images, Thijs. With your frog's eye view, as Ralf called it, these are very powerful images. And luckily not a single raindrop on the window.
                    I think I have mentioned this before, but when I lived down in Hampshire, on the opposite side of Southampton Water to the town itself, I would sometimes take the ferry from Hythe over to Soton, as it is often called, and once the ferryman took us right up to one of the Queens so that we passed under her bow. It gave you a crick in the neck craning upwards to see it. From where I lived, and it was quite a way from Hythe, I would hear the Queens coming in to dock at night. They each had their own deep, distinctive voice, thrilling to hear as it reverberated across the countryside.
                    In #334, I would love to know what all that is about!

                      if i zoom in on the above images,we see this point.
                      where the bigger cruisevessels turn,
                      but one goes bow first to the cruiseterminal,and turn on her way out.
                      the other turns first and sail stern first to the terminal.
                      this is a point where i Always goes to, when one comes in



                      turning further,we see the flat right on 338-2 left below.

                        These are superb views, Thijs, and so atmospheric as the gloomy skies seem only to enhance the scenes below. In that first one you seem to be right up almost in the clouds!

                          we where just half way there,we had to wait for the space tower,that brought us 80 meters higher

                        the locks you see in the image above end below was what i see for 6 weeks after my accident.
                        from my bed on the 7th floor of the grey bulding on the right side of the image.
                        the ''Erasmus MC'' hospital.



                        the big road is passing the Euromast and on that point it is a tunnel,and on the other side of the Maas it come up again,not far from the ss ''Rotterdam''
                        on image 337-2 right from the chimney.

                        my home for 6 weeks. (hmm,maybe one for the photo competition)

                            and again a gap,

                            and then we are round,the hodpital is just a little on the left.



                            a few images closer to the base of the tower.

                            the entrance of the tunnel,and the floating chinese restaurant.
