My ‘European’ skywatch photographs taken aboard Boeing 767 en-route our trans-Atlantic flight to the Netherlands last year. It was great seeing the ocean of clouds and the dawning skies on the horizon, a very wonderful, humbling and blessed sight to behold.

Wooden shoe-making in Netherlands

PhotoHunt 98: Wooden
These are some of the photos I took in Netherlands during our trip last October. These are in the countryside where life still rolls with the wooden shoes and windmills. The wooden shoe factories gained it’s reputation across the world and gathered display collection as far as Korea and Japan. One thing with wooden shoes is that they warm the feet when its cold and cool the feet down when its hot.
