Thanks for looking. Comments are always welcome.

Chris- these are absolutely terrific images!
What a great place it is.
I'd love to see some in color. I have a theory that the best way to see the "grayness" of things is in color . The idea actually makes sense if you think about it.
Gee- the Dutch must be some of the best spellers in the world if they can spell such names correctly. Maybe that's why so many Dutch immigrated to the early United States- known even back then as the "Land of Oppurtunity- bad spellars welcumed."

It is, Eric.
I have been there about three times in the past two years and always find animal tracks.
I guess from deer and it would be very cool to capture one in this landscape.

Thank you Charlie. You are far too kind.
The weather forecast was good for ground fog and pastel colors in the sky.
Unfortunately as I arrived there was only a little bit of fog and it stayed cloudy at sunset. So I went for B&W.
A few hours later a little bit of blue sky did show up. So my color versions are nothing to write home about.
Although I never had lessons in spelling dutch after 23 years I'm doing fine I guess.

Chris- At the risk of talking too much (a risk I'm not known to shy away from ):
What I meant was that a gray, cloud/fog kind of day doesn't really look gray and cloudy when depicted in B&W because everything looks either pure white or pure black of some shade of gray. It's only a matter of HOW gray things look.
In B&W a "gray" sky might be a light-blue color or almost any other light color; it just LOOKS gray.
But the same scene in color lets the viewer SEE the grayness.
I'd like to see one of these shots (with sky showing) done in a normal color manner.

Ok Charlie, you are my friend and I play along.
I guess by now I get what you mean. I picked the one that is most suitable for a color version and ..... like it better then the B&W image.
I give you two versions. The first is basically the RAW file and the second the processed image.

Thanks for obliging me, buddy.
I much prefer the RAW file for this shot .
I'd probably prefer the RAW version of your first image even better- and it would probably show off the fog even better- but I'm much too shy to ask you to post it .

I love pictures like these. The last black and white in your set is stunning. The composition, use of lines and position of trees relative to the foreground grasses is just perfect.

Very nice images, Chris.
I prefer the BW.
The first two are especially strong. To me, there is an echo of foreground trees or clumps in the first two, strengthening these compositions. And it is more subtle and even more effective in the second.
Nice work on the exposures.

Well Charlie, looks like we are buddies now so I give you the raw version of the first image.

Thank you Scott. It's fun to pick a subject and then circle around it to find other shooting angles.
I'm glad you like them.
