Thanks Fons.

Posted earlier in June 2021 topic.

In order to make it possible for disabled people to visit Regte Heide, a special shell pad was built across the Moore. Bikers  are not allowed on this road, but they use it frequently.

Conditions make for a striking image.

A burial ground?  Do you know how far back it goes?

Thanks Hugh.

Yes "The grave hills or Tumulus, and their history are very interesting. There are seven of them, six on the highest point, on the west-side near the small river 'Oude Ley'. They were constructed around 1.600 - 1.800 BC  by a kind of Celtic people who lived around in that area."

Sorry John - I missed the first posting and its explanation.  The B&W suits that image.

Thanks Hugh.

Nice stuff John! It was a very nice afternoon to be out.

I did go to "my" little area as well, might post some images of that in the cartier heide landscapes thread later.

IMHO it is very nice to document one area over a longer period of time, you're showing off the beauty of the Regte Heide very well!

Thanks Hans. Yes it is good to document a nature area. A lot of themes can be covered and it's interesting to make comparisons.  You do that successfully with the Cartier Heide.

Yesterday was a great day, with fast changing light and periods with sunshine and (limited and local) rain.
