This area of shifting sands can be found in the middle of the Netherlands and is with 700 hectares
the larges of its kind in Europe. Probably because we spend money to protect this unique environment.
I did revisit about two weeks ago and shot some long exposer images using my IR filter.
Thanks for looking. Comments are always welcome.

Interesting stuff, Chris.
Because we stubbornly refuse to go metric (yeah!), I have no idea how big a hectare is. I'm guessing it's bigger than a breadbasket .
IMO you worked up to it... I really like the last image .

Thank you Charlie.
Well, I was thinking of doing the calculation but then it hit me that I have no idea what measurement you guys
on the other side of the small pond use for large surfaces. However, it is a hugh sandbox.
Glad you like the last image.

Chris,
Americans typically don't pay much attention to the size of huge areas: we just call them smaller than Rhode Island... or larger than Rhode Island .
Technically, we measure large areas by the acre, but I suspect that only farmers really know how big an acre is.
Most (like me) know that an acre is smaller than Rhode Island.
But I don't know how big Rhode Island is .
Joke:
A mild-mannered Rhode Island farmer was talking to a Texas rancher: "I've got a nice little ten-acre dairy farm."
Texan, huffing proudly, says: "Well, it takes eight hours to drive all the way across MY ranch."
Rhode Island farmer: "I used to have a truck like that."

Well Charlie, if you use acres then you are in the metric system because 100acres = 1km2 ; unless your acres are different.
I did some calculations and came up with this: 700ha = 7km2 = 2.7mi2 = fits 448 times in Rhode Island.
Love the joke.

I love what you have done with the sky. Generally, people leave it bland and so it doesn't work too well in bnw. Your pictures are exceptional

Thank you sozypozy. There were some dark clouds moving through the little less dark sky.
The effect you see is mainly from the two minutes exposer.

Chris, this looks like a photographic paradise, these are all good but #2 and the last one are standouts.

Cheers Ray
