A splendid day last Thursday, it felt like the first day of summer, though that hasn’t officially started yet; we spent it as a hiking day in South Holland through the Krimpenerwaard, South of Gouda

Best viewed enlarged.

One of the stretches in this hike was a nice (exactly straight) foot path, a canal on the right, to the left a row of trees and shrubs, then a ditch, and meadows on the other side of the ditch. The ditch was practically covered with Duck weed and some of the meadows were reachable by a little bridge, usually no more than two beams with planks.

This one was two steel beams with steel rods welded across it: it allows humans to pass easily but cattle and sheep simply cannot pass such a bridge.

I was struck by the contrasts between the ‘heavy-metal’ bridge and the duckweed, both as hard vs. soft and in color, two very different shades of green.
