Quiet natural shelter for water birds

Arona
This is the last photo of my tree-series while I am flying home from Germany. Thank you all for your wonderful comments!!
I have travelled for nearly two weeks in some of the northern European countries with three wonderful partners from China whom I professionally assist. They have totally monopolized my attention while chatting the ears off my head, asking hundreds of questions about the culture, the food, the wines and habits of the countries we were driving through by car. Two weeks of unrefrained enthusiasm to see the artistical wonders of northern Italy, the soft hills of northern France, the golden ornaments of the buildings on the Grand Place in Brussels, the flat land of Holland with its enormous clouds piling on top of each other above the horizon, the impressive and powerful centre of wealthy Frankfurt. But also two weeks of meetings with customers, full breakfasts, lunches and dinners in excellent hotels and restaurants, with rich and lushios buffets offering everything any normal and wise person of over sixty would not give in to. Two shattering weeks of "tomorrow-is-another-day", accompanied by the best of wines, to which I would not have dreamed to say no to. Yes, I know that I will be happy this afternoon to open the front door of my apartment, to embrace my lovely wife, and I confess that I also look forward to her light "hospital soups", for the next few weeks...

This photo is completely magical. Your time away sounds exhaustingly wonderful but I bet it will be good to get home. I can't wait to see what your lens will bring us next. Have a restful weekend.

Another incredibly beautiful photograph! You could put this one and yesterday's up one the walls - in fact, you should. Magnificent!

And methinks you had a wonderful trip...even if you might have overdone a couple of times! ;-)

I see you have a lot of fog too. Fog may be a danger if you are driving, but it's just an opportunity if you are taking pictures... great shot!

Welcome home!
What a trip you had! But there's no place like home.

Thank you so much for providing us with these magnificent photos while you were gone. This one is as breathtaking as the rest, if not moreso!

All good things must come to an end but you have another good thing to look forward to ! :) I'm sure you were a wonderful host and tour guide, and wine connoisseur and on and on. But i must know.... did you take any photographs for us? If not, we'll be thrilled to see your beautiful lake and city again as only you can photograph.

And BTW, I'm taking the receipt to the Post Office and a nice employee is going to do a trace for me.

A really, really beautiful photograph! And so are all of your tree series.

Is it really so very different there, or is the difference in your perception? Probably both.

Spectacular photos, and it sounds like a wonderful, productive, and tiring trip. I hope you had the opportunity to take some photos. Combining business trips with the opportunity for some extra travel is the best of both worlds.
