Very nice portrait! Like the way you isolate Chris from the background, but at the same time give us enough view of the environment. Good photographer and good gear in great harmony 🙂.

It's great Bent that you and I saw also bobfriedman have participated at the event, despite the fact that we only published the themes last night.

Well, i don't have the blurry shots, but did pick up some architecture details on Saturday.

Did have a blast by the way, thanks to all who participated, but first and foremost the organizers of this run. Very well done!

And a special thanks to Frank for putting me in the best light  :o 8) :o 8)

Some details old and new.

Hans, it was such a joy meeting you again. Thank you for the special moments and images that you have posted!

I have opened the poll for those that have entered the race thus far.
I will subsequently add to the poll as entries are submitted.
I will lock the topic soon though, so a gentle reminder to those who haven't entered to enter :)

The diversity of the floating-plant community ('lemnids' in the jargon of aquatic ecologists)  is massive here in the Netherlands. When the plant cover is scrutinised up close, a myriad of life forms are seen. The density packing is optimal as each specie has a different size and shape factor, thus allowing all available space to be utilised. This fact is demonstrated in a clear and concise manner in the grab shot I did today. There are no less than 6 different lemnids co-existing here. The largest fronds on the frame are around 7 mm and the smallest a mere 0.4 mm.

Lemnids are important as they interface the terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems and harvest nutrients from both. In combination with the efficient area density packing and an extremely fast growth rate, plus the fact their protein and mineral content are exceptionally high, make them a valuable resource for animal and human consumption, and as a measure in biological purification plants.
