    WOW the photos in this thread are amazing...a big thumbs up! I finally kept myself to my good intention to start sorting and editing all of the photos that I have made the last 3-5 years and pretty much never did anything with afterwards. I started with the family-orientated ones where people had been waiting for for ages.

    So this is from 3 months ago when we went to Rotterdam to go abseiling from the Euromast (just over 100m/330ft of abseiling) which was a birthday gift to one of my relatives. Obviously he didn't want to go alone, so some "volunteers" where appointed.

    First we had a little boat tour through the harbour, the weather was really good at that time.

    After the tour we went to the Euromast to go abseiling. Lucky started to rain seriously. One thing: If you ever have the chance to do it! The first few steps were over the balcony and onto the side of the tower restaurant. Amazing and since your feet have a place to go you still feel somewhat in control. After that you get to the point that your feet can't go anywhere anymore and you'll have to hang into the harness and let yourself go down. I was on the weight limit of needed a double knot, but the instructors though a single would be ok. Turned out that with the wet rope it was pretty much impossible for me to control the speed of going downwards, so I had a relative quick way down Not the most pleasant
    Here I go (shot by the photographer):

    Went back upstairs (by elevator) afterwards and took this photo of Rotterdam from above.

    Since it still rained, we decided to go away from Rotterdam, drive to the beach and have some dinner. Luckily it stopped raining so we took some shots at sunset.

    As a photographer I rarely get photographed, but Corine and I got one after all
