Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Nature

Today’s challenge being nature, I will share with you some photos from one of my bike rides from Amsterdam going up north through farmland and some villages, and returning along the lake side (Ijmeer). It wasn’t a sunny day but the heavy clouds provided enough “drama” and contrasting photos.

Nature is all around. The scenery is composed of the typical Dutch black and white cows, some horses, goats, and of course many race bikers like us, and leisure bikers.

Hope you enjoy the ride with me.

Photos taken with an iPhone 6.

I am joining Lens and Pens by Sally, who hosts each Monday the Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge. 

The schedule theme for this week’s challenge is: Nature

  1. Thanks fro the virtual tour of your country’s natural landscapes. “Bikers Along the Water” gives us an idea of what you see from the path’s vantage point: layers of countryside. Happy Photo Challenge.


  2. These are great! I particularly love the shot of the white horse. It kinda looks like he’s seen his reflection in the water and gone “hey, what’s that?” and it backing away. Fanciful I know! I also love the last shot; so much drama in the clouds. Have a great day. Cheers, Su.


    1. Thanks much! I am happy to have introduced you to the Dutch country side. You cross the whole country and see the same very flat landscape, greenery and mostly cows and goats.
      Still in your list?


  3. Lucile, what a gorgeous bike route you have! The green colors jumped from my phone screen and the cows and horses are such a serene sight…the clouds definitely add drama and depth but I hope the sun is out today: )


      1. Good, good! The sun shone through today here in NYC so hopefully it’s crossing the Atlantic now and will reach you soon; )


        1. I am very proud and happy to announce that your plan worked out perfectly eel, as it would do anything you plan!
          I woke up to a sunny, warm day, with temps going up to 21C! and wait…tomorrow it reaches 30C! Just too much! LOL. Yes, I am complaining….because on Saturday it goes back to the 20’s!
          Hoep NYC keeps being sunny and that you have a fabulous day!
          Hugs from Amsterdam!

          1. Oh Lucile, I’m glad the people I called to bring you sunshine and warmth came through on their promise: ))))
            Enjoy it!
            Hugs to you on this Thursday and always!


    1. Please do and share! This was 60 km in total.
      By the way, I had nominated you for the free writing style but I guess you didn’t get the pingback. And now I know you don’t like not correcting. So no worries!
      Enjoy the ride! Have fun.

  4. You’re right. The clouds add another dimension that would be missing in a clear blue sky. I love clouds. Hate rain. Are those longer shots shot in panoramic, or what? I miss green stuff growing. Not much of that here. You may be right about the Samsung also!


  5. Oh my gosh! This is great! I need to be editing and writing, packing for a trip! How can ! I get anything done with posts like this? You’re just forcing me outdoors!


What do you think? I'd love to hear it all.
