Electric energy guided high and dry over an early, cold and foggy landscape.
The grassland landscape is very typical of the Netherlands, and powerlines carry electicity from power plant to city to city. This time of year foggy mornings are common too, sometimes resulting in only a couple meter view.
I take a train three days a week through similar landscapes, and am often frustrated I can not stop the train and enjoy the view a bit longer than the speeding train allows me to. For the World Wide Panorama, I decided to get up a couple of hours early so I could take my bike into the early morning area.
Around me, the world started to come to life in the wake of a new day. Farmers took to their lands, cows woke up from a cold sleep. The serenity of the grassland scene was only broken by the passing of commuter trains, and a steady flow of low flying aircraft from the nearby Rotterdam airport (though you would not say it from this panorama).
