K..I LOVE this capture. The sky, the curve of the road, the archway. You picked the perfect spot to stand to capture this. I only wish I was riding along with the biker...wonder where she's(?) going..makes me want to follow.
Knowing you, you stood there for an hour waiting for the biker to come by..hope Russ had a snack with him!!

Thanks very much for the kind comments. Although it rained a lot while we were there, at least the skies were beautiful every day! Yes Deb, I did stand there for a while. A woman opened the window to work with the flowers and various people passed by. It was a wonderful spot! And you know how patient Russ is! : )

I've so enjoyed reminiscing with all your wonderful Holland images, Karen! This one is exactly how I remember many days - somber, grey, moody, a little damp, but full of old-world charm. Exceptional image. HUGE CONGRATULATIONS on a wonderful Finalist, and good luck in the next round!
