John’s Pictures

Hello dear friends of TE, I have a preference for canals and certainly it canal where I as child could play with friends, sixty five years ago!
In the afternoon this was a wonderful image with the long shadows in water of the trees.
Not real a winter picture, but the winter in Flemish Belgium is very soft with 10 Degree Celsius

Thank you very much to your visit.

While to get started with 't Molentje, a neighbourhood in Moerkerke, Canadians tried about the Leopold and Schipdonkcanal. The channels were crossed with only one Bailey bridge (due to the distant supply line from Normandy was the only one they had) and a bridgehead was established, but fierce German counterattacks drove the Canadians back with heavy losses. Dan was chosen to venture a crossing at Nut House, a place just east of the spot where the two channels parted. This was a triangular strip with even dry land along the Leopold Canal with the base at Maldegem - Aardenburg and the top near the village of Nut Head, located five kilometres to the east. It was only a few hundred yards wide, and the northern boundary coincided with the Belgian-Dutch border. The attack began on October 6 with the support of artillery and Canadian Wasp (carriers) that were equipped with flamethrowers. The Wasps launched a wall of fire across the Leopold Canal, which the troops were able to climb up the steep banks and their attack boats for stabbing the canal. Two small beachheads were established, but the Germans carried out against attacks. The Canadians were, however, stand by 9 October and the gap between the two bridgeheads was closed, and on October 12, a position was reached on the other side of the Aardenburgweg.

Hallo John,
Vandaag had je echt wel het ideale weer om er met de fiets op uit te trekken. Blijkbaar ook op 9 februari.
Hier toon je weer één van die prachtige zichten uit je streek.
Vele wintertakken met een blauwe lucht er achter zichtbaar, mooi weerspiegeld in het kalme kanaalwater.
Uitstekend perspectief met de lange bomenrijen. Perfecte scherpte en aantrekkelijke compositie.
Mooi is het ook het zicht van enkele huizen met rode daken aan de rechterzijde.
Prachtig gedaan!
Vele groeten, Paul

Hi John,
Very beautiful view, so lovely light and warm tones, pefect sharpness annd grea depth with the perspective of the canal.

Hi John,

Light, shadows and these very nice reflections yet polarizing the sky. I love this perspective and the water beside the road. Beautiful composition!

Congratulations and a big hug !

Hello John,
You have found a great place for taking this superb image. The perfectly executed water reflections supported the depth and perspective effect. Well seen and composed. Charming post!

Dobro vece, gospodine.
Lep pogled i trenutak, vrlo interesantan i dobar tekst o naselju sa istorijom i opisom ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazan kanal sa drvoredom i trenutak sa lepim refleksom na povrsini vode.
Lepo mesto za setnju i odmor sa ribolovom.
Lep drvored i trenutak sa svetlom koje je istaklo lepotu mesta.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.

Hello John,
The sharpness of this photo is so perfect I feel I can cut myself from looking at it. The line of trees across the canal make a beautiful diagonal and are marvelously reflected in the calm water. The light and colours are generally very attractive.
Kind regards,

Bonsoir John
C'est tout simplement superbe. A peine aperçue sur le site j'ai tout de suite reconnu le nom de l'auteur.
Bravo et bonne soirée.

Hello my dear friend JOHN Maenhout
and have a nice new week
at first I am feeling better lookin at this photo
and the peaceful atmosphere so lovely warm and nice
color tones with all those trees alongside the canal
the sharpness of this photo is almost perfect
I love the reflections adding depth to the scenery
I love the whole inspiration of this capture
as always a first shot quality

Hello John
This addition to your gallery is a masterpiece! All the photo qualities are exquisite and the diagonal framing with the line of trees with the reflections are superbly presented. The exposure is superbly managed to reveal wonderful details in the shadow areas. Congratulations and thanks for sharing.
best regards

Hello John,

The oblique line of the trees gives deepness and the canal is a perfect mirror. The winter's afternoon light gives a nice mood to the composition and I like the subtle golden tones.

Best regards


Good performance... Nice reflection effect. Good colors. Tfs...

HI John!

Once again a masterpiece, the composition, allignment, light and colours...and the very good and informative note, this is one more important point on photography...all we learn about!!

Best regards


Hi John, very good picture of this beautiful composition on the channel. Very well composed and captured with an excellent view, nice picture with great depth, good sharpness, nice light, color and quality. Excellent and interesting job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.

Good night and happy start to the week.
All the best from southern Spain.

Hello John,

You have timed the taking of this shot to perfection; the sun is low and its light has gilded the grass, as well as creating long shadows and mirror-like reflections in the still water of the canal.
Your viewpoint captures the whole character of the low lands, its canal, its tall, lining poplars and composed them in a way that creates a wonderful sense of perspective.
This is a classic for anyone studying composition.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Ciao John, fascinating composition with fantastic reflections, wonderful warm colors, splendid light and excellent perspective, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello John,

You have written a very interesting and informative note about this place and especially about the conflicts which took place here in 1944.

This canal is beautiful and the lines of tall trees on either side of it, so perfectly kept, add to the attraction. Taken on a winter morning, the low warm sunlight illuminates the trees beautifully and casts lovely shadows across the grassland as well as helping produce stunning reflections in the calm water of the canal.

A very well and pleasingly composed photograph with gorgeous light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.


Kind Regards,


Hi John,

The reflections on the water of the canal are assets to the composition. The length of the canal is giving depth and perspective to the scene. The point of view is showing the details of the trees. The good luminosity is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice day.


Hello dear John,
Another wonderfull capture and entry in your gallery "a la John" . All photographic qualifications is at it's best.
Amazing mirroring effect, nice framing.

Hello John

Superb capture with very nice lighting and wonderful perspective along the canal. Excellent composition too. Lovely shot:) Thanks.

Greetings, Erling

Lovely comparison with the smaller canal shot I downloader a few days ago, John.
This looks like a much longer walk, I would prefer to do it on a bicycle.
Like you canals are high on my 'likes' list. This is beautiful.

Thanks for this beauty, John

What a beautiful landscape offered by this magnificent canal and the row of trees with their reflections on the water. It was a very nice place for you to play when you were young. Very nice colors. TFS.

Hello John,
This is a very beautiful photo taken under excellent light conditions. Your composition is great using the repeating pattern created by the trees to lead the eye through the scene. The reflection is great creating nice depth and balance for the scene. The photo has great sharpness yielding fine detail and definition.

Hello John, I remember your posts from some time ago. This one is very impressive with the line of trees almost like soldier with their reflections aligned along the water. It makes for a wonderful setting It is either evening or morning so the pink sky and sun gives a very mellow reddish tinge to the shot. Excellent. I have the 7D as well and it never does as well as you have done here. ha ha. Regards Roger

Hi John
Mooi schot. Goede verlichting en aantrekkelijke kleuren. Zeer mooie combinatie. Goed gepresteerd.

Hi John,
Superb view along the canal. I love the trees line and the warm sunlight. Well taken.


Hello John,
Splendid low light capture so wonderfully crisp. Good light, good parallel lines of trees, road and water. Reflections are excellent. One of my favorites for sure.

Bonjour John,

Belle photo où l’accent est mis sur ces arbres dénudés alignés le long du canal. On ressent beaucoup de calme et de douceur dans cette ambiance avec une merveilleuse lumière des tons veloutés. L’instant est parfaitement immortalisé.

Hello John,
It looks as though that kind of landscape is your favourite subject to photograph. I like the amazing perspective with the line of trees disappearing into the distance. You have chosen the perfect time of day for the angles of the light, and the colours are really maginficent. The graphical silhouettes of the bare trees stand nicely in contrast against the lovely blue sky. The reflections in the canal are superb and the sharpness is spot on. Excellent work !

Howdy John,

Like everyone else, an attractive view of the Moerkerke canal, a blend of sunlight and shadows from the sleeping trees lining the bank, going on into the distance.
Looks like a fine place for a stroll or bike ride, with no reminders of the WWII tragedies.

Thanks for sharing,

Hi John
The frame has been used to the limit, but there is no chaos... it's strangely enough a minimalistic photo (I think) because it's so orderly and clear; all submitted the parallel lines of the canal and the road. The point of disappearance is smartly placed behind the row of trees on the right of the road.
Relly beautiful light and colors. Super note.
Cheers Frank

Fraai licht, prachtig perspectief en een schitterende reflectie in het water. Geweldige foto!!

Hello John,
you have used the glowing light and long shadows expertly to produce a fine photograph that has a fine depth which has been created by the convergence of the canal and the road.
The picture has exquisite colour and fine clarity.

Dear John,

I recognize many of the scenes on canals that you have shared with us. With each different light condition the mood changes, but it is always compelling. This is a gorgeous shot, befitting your talent as a photographer/artist.

I too have failed to upload critiques lately, getting strange messages. I will save this note, just in case it does not go through.

Have a wonderful weekend, my good friend,

Hi John,
I like the low sunlight when lighting the elegant alignment of the trees along the canal, the warm hues created on it, the deep perspective of the elements of the ensemble, and the reflections on the water.
It's a perfect sample of your fantastic works of the canals in your country, executed skilfully.
A beautiful composition, my friend.

Hi John
Looks so inviting canal scene taken from a great point view, it's neat and clean with the delight of the low warm light and lots of appeal. I am very much intrigued by receding trees and the calming effect of the still water. A quality image as always, really like the punchy colour, Congrats and tfs.

Hi John,

A stunning geometric composition. As a maths teacher, I am impressed by how easy it is the position the vanishing point. Lovely composition features - the repetition in different groups of bands of vertical lines - the reflection - the triangular elements as our eye is drawn to the vanishing point. A very nice work,
