No my camera does not have such a strong zoom, I was on the tower of the Dutch Reformed church in Den Burg. Click the "church" label and see more.

Hello again Dick
This is nice to see, I have many pictures of Weather Vanes... but none taken from such a good vantage point.
I followed the link and would like to say that I hope many others do do.. Thank you for such a great post

Hi Dick, was trying to avoid the Friday's traffic, but unfortunately don't have much time otherwise - not even on weekends... ;))
The weathercock is great! The joggers' glove, his problem! Who told him to jog? ;))

This is cool! I love weather vanes and often take them myself. This is a great one.

Ted Roth said...

You have a wonderful eye for detail and angles. Like you, when I get to these ancient churches I have to climb the towers. So good to see leaves on the trees. We are still all colored in drab. Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting.
