In the old day's people used small ships to get around in what was then a very wet region with lots of canals. Those day's have passed, but are still remembered and celebrated by a event called 'preamkeskowe". It's a combination of folkloristic games and a competition with old old barges. I was responsible for the PR and tried to document everything with my camera. Lensens used where the 16-50 and the 55-300mm.
1. Throwing competition.

Lovely pictures, esp. the first and second. It seems Dutch to my eyes, and if so, probably Frisian. Were they all taken with the 16-50mm? Esp. the third, but also the second, seem a bit longer than that.

Thanks for looking (and the compliments) and yes you are right on both count's; this is in Fryslân and only the first photo was with the 16-50; the two others ones are with the the DA 55-300. I couldn't figure out ho to get that information displayed correctly within the format of this post.
