Artist's Description

Here another addition to what by now starts to become a nice series of „Dutch cyclists“. This shot was taken in late June last year near Lienden. While on the left you see the high dike protecting the low land of the Upper Betuwe from the floods of the River Lek, on the right you see some of the fruit trees so characteristic for this area.

To me this shot conveys a strong sense of happiness: cycling in a warm summer breeze while overlooking a rich green landscape with farms and orchards, a lovely idea to think of, especially now in January!

Taken near Lienden/Betuwe, 25th June 2008, 5.05 pm
Panasonic DMC-TZ3 4,6-46 mm at 6,5 mm
F 3,9, 1/640, ISO 100

Please allow me to bring back to you the view across the orchards of the Betuwe from a former submission, taken from that dike:

And if you wonder what lies on the other side of the dike, it is that „Nieuwe Waai“ you know too already:
