Old Flemish farm in Sijsele.

At the same time, every farmer strives for a classification that is as rational as possible on the farm itself. The subdivision into residential buildings, housing for animals, storage for materials and harvest products and finally a building for the processing of products is proof of this.
The settlement helps to supervise and protect the property, but also has to minimize the movements between the buildings. The arrangement around an inner courtyard is clearly the most advantageous, especially when it concerns larger spaces.

I hope that you enjoy it

Hallo John,
Een mooie foto van deze boederij met zijn witte muren en oranje daken. De jonge groene jonge blaadjes in de bomen en de heg en de bloesem in de bomen geven een mooie lentesfeer op deze zonnige dag.

Salut John,
Une jolie composition bien équilirée avec de plaisantes teintes bien rendues, la luminosité printanière est bien capturée.

hello John,

beautiful view of this Flemish farm in a sunny spring day, with the blossoming white trees. The yard is very spacious. Lovely red roof and green elements - windows and doors. Wonderful composition from the countryside.

have a nice day


Ciao John
la foto è molto bella e la fattoria è molto interessante, ma sono distratto dalle scie del cielo, perdonami, ma non le sopporto, è un problema mio....

Hello John,
Excellent capture of this traditional farmhouse. I like the point of view and the inclusion of the postbox. The track makes a good lead-line toward the buildings. Very agreeable lights and colours and superb clarity,

Hi John
A charming old farmhouse within a peaceful green surroundings that deserves a few shots for it does look so photogenic bright, colourful and stand out. Touch of blue sky lends a punchy finish to this charming rural scene, Congrats

Hello John

The red roof of the old Flemish farm contrasts wonderfully with the bg blue sky to give a superb warm cold colour contrast. Good sharpness and the flowering fruit tree adds charm. Tfs!

Bravo et amitié

Ciao John, lovely composition with beautiful old farm, splendid light, wonderful natural colors and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonjour John,

Je regarde cette belle photo et elle me donne envie de cette ferme. D'arriver sur les lieux et de regarder si j'ai du courrier et d'avancer vers les bâtiments et voir mes animaux dans un aussi bel environnement.



Hallo John,
Alhoewel dit een boerderij is, vinden we toch de herkenbare stijl terug die we ook bij het godshuis zagen. Waarschijnlijk hier dan zonder veel architecturale details.
Een prachtig beeld dat tegelijkertijd de schoonheid van de lente weergeeft.
De lucht toont nogal wat lange horizontale lijnen.
Maar met het erf en de boerderij wordt een heel vredig beeld gepresenteerd.
Vele groeten, Paul

Hello John,

These farm buildings are so neatly kept that they could be the home of the farmer!
I like your use of the lead road and the inclusion of the letter box, giving us a good starting point from which to view the scene. Everything looks so idyllic from the blossoming trees to the attractive, terracotta-roofed buildings.
The light and the details are perfectly handled.

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)

Bonjour, cher ami John,
Cette vieille ferme a gardé tout son charme et son environnement également;
Il est plaisant de revoir ces fermes très bien conservées.

Small farm complex, all green surrounding, so its red roof-tiles and white walls stand out contrast, John.Attractive sight with the addition of the elegant mail-box, the red gate and the humble barn on far right.
i like how details included.
Good afternoon,

A wonderful atmospheric place and photo a well! The hedge and the letterbox in foreground create a good depth and all is bathed in a beautiful sunlight.A place to calm down, to relax ... I like it very much.
