    Just some pics of the mill on the river, another of my most favourite subjects to take photos of, of the swamp and of some fields (to once more show you the flatness round here):

    I hope these photos show you want you wanted to see, Tyson, when you asked me for some photos of the countryside surrounding me in your PM. Keep in mind that the south looks totally different, and so does the west or the east ... not all parts are like this.

    Nice work! I like #5 best, with those geometric lines. Countryside can be flat and still be scenic.

    Thanks, you two, and yes, some have been out here before, I think, plus that mill will feature in my photos more often in the future, too, I'm afraid ;).

    And hey, it's ok to come and look, even for those who are not Tyson (it's only that he asked me particularly for some photos of the area around me).

    I had asked her for a few pictures of Germany, my family has a very strong German back ground. 1890 + or - a year or two, my family came to the US. The stayed in a community made up of all German immigrants. The blood line was not broke until my great grandmother on my dads side married an English man. My mom was 100% German. We have copies of the boat tickets and every thing. Also both of my Grandfathers fought in in WW2 one was a pilot on a bomber and the of a tank driver.

    Great pictures I love them.

    You I can almost smell the country air in that last one, someone said that if a picture strikes up emotion it is a success. I think #5 does it for me.

    Well, I am happy I could show you some.
    Now it much depends on where your family came from, for if they are from the south, things look much different there!

    Is this road one that runs parallel to a railway line? Looks like it.
    There is a railway line running through my place here (which is not my home town, I originate from Northrhine-Westphalia, too, just like Alex_B, but only now live in Lower-Saxony), the main railway line from Bremen to Hamburg, and I love to go rollerblading on the road right next to it. There SHOULD be a photo of that road somewhere, too, or more than one (as always! :shock: ) ??? Hang on. I'll find it for you.

    Corinna, you need to stop posting these threads! They're gorgeous, and thank you for contributing to my love for reflections! :) I really really like numbers 3 and 4. Stunning.
