Very regular I show a picture around the canals between Bruges and Sluis (Netherlands).
This small lake is a place between three canals, care for a very quiet place, a lot bikers and walker coming here but see not these fantastic area.
Different animals have here them biotoop, as the frog and dragonflies and a lot different birds.

This is a tribute to my friend Hendrik (member TE hdl)and inhabitant of Damme, I know that he this place cherish.

Damme is a municipality located in the Belgian province of West Flanders, six kilometres northeast of Brugge (Bruges)
In the 13th century Damme was the port for Bruges, to which it is linked by the long, straight, treelined and picturesque Damse Vaart, which continues across the Dutch border to Sluis and the Zwin. The line of the town's star-shaped fortifications can still be traced by lines of tall poplar trees and in places by a moat. It was the site of the Battle of Damme, fought on 30 and 31 May 1213.

Today it is a popular venue for eating out, and a destination for boat trips. Damme is since a few years also known as a book town, with numerous bookshops and regular book fairs.

I took this picture during the afternoon, I used and bridge handrail as tripod.

I hope you like it.

Hallo John,
Wat een heerlijke diep verzadigde foto met zwaar contrast en een wel heel erg goed belicht groene kleur. Het groen komt hier werkelijk spetterend mijn scherm binnen, prachtig. Kwa compositie zit hij prima in elkaar, uitstekende lijnen en een mooi middle punt.
Prachtig werk...echt heel goed..
Groet, Henk

Yes this is a beautiful place. It seem very peaceful and colourful. The natural environment shown here is very clear. The reflections on the water and the blue sky also enhance the feeling of the great outdoors. Excellent picture JOhn.

Hello John,
Exquisite scenery with a beautiful reflection. I like the colors, even if with a bit of yellow cast (maybe my monitor or daylight viewing) and the clarity. Could perhaps move closer to give us a larger view of the pond? Good work, John. Regards,

Hello John,
Wonderful picture, it seem a nice nature place to visit. The blue sky looks nice, support by the calm reflection on the water. Well captured it John, the superb colours and sharpness are well. tfs

Goedemorgen John,
Heerlijke foto met prachtige kleuren. Vooral de groene struiken en de blauwe lucht zijn prachtig. Het wordt bovendien mooi gereflecteerd in het water. Zeer geslaagd werk!

Hoi John,

Prachtige foto van een heel mooi gebied! Het is ook goed fietsen daar. Ik woon zelf wat Oostelijker en dan kom je onder Tilburg/Breda Belgie binnen, maar dat is ook mooi fietsen.
Ja, zoals Henk zegt; Het groen springt je tegemoet!! De reflectie is prachtig, maar het blauw in de top van de foto voelt ietsjes 'burned' aan. Die wolk komt er iets raar uit naar voren, maar je hebt toch geen polarizer gebruikt dat dat zou verklaren. Anyhow, prachtige compo van een heel mooi gebied!

Groeten uit Indonesie,

looks like a piece of heaven with the saturated colours and the vivid blue reflections on the pond... a refreshing shot i think... congrats john...

all the best


hello John
very nice place well captured, well framed, good light, the colours are IMO a bit too much saturated, but it makes a very nice composition

Hi John,
Really beautiful place, I like the idyllic atmosphere and the fascinating reflection. Beautiful details, colours are gorgeous, excellent composition, clarity and sharpnes. Congratulations. Have a nice day

hello John,
a nice tribute to Hendrik (is he going fine?) of this nice location.
For me, the colors are a little too much saturated.
best regards

Hi John,

A nice photo of the lake surrounded by trees under a beautiful sky and of their reflection in the water, the photo has a good composition, DOF and nice colors. Have a nice day7.

This is indeed beautiful landscape . Nice POV you have chosen to give a deep perspective. Everything works well here except the grey frame , i would have liked a white one.

fabuleuses couleurs bien saturées, les reflets dans l'eau sont bien capturés, un paysage de nature verdoyante, bienréalisé

Dag John. Werkelijk schitterende foto met sublieme kleuren! Een echt paradijselijk zicht en ik ben heel blij dat je er deze hebt opgezet. Persoonlijk vind ik dit één van de mooiste die je de laatste tijd hebt geplaatst. Bedankt voor de tribute! Ik zou er een 10 voor geven, maar het programma laat me maar toe om er 2 te geven.

JP John
A bridge handrail is a very heavy duty tripod. You got here a very pleasant image but I think you over saturate it a little bit too much at PP level. Otherwise I like it.

Speciaal foto van een bijzonder plaats: Brugge!!!
Ik heb bijna 15 jaar in België gewoond en heb heel goede herinneringen mee gebracht.
Fantastische foto: Proficiaat!!!

Perfect postcard shot! The colour in this is gorgeous, very rich and vivid without being overstaturated. The compositon is great too, with the water framed by the trees on each side and the grass at the bottom. Beautiful!

Hi John
Lovely, bright saturated colours here. I really like the gap between the trees showing of the stunning sky and reflection. I would have just cropped off the bit of trunk on the right as it distracts slightly.

Hi John,
Nice June atmosphere with tranquil environ of greenery and a part of this canal. How you show the far side amongst the trees makes this one an interesting photo. Saturated colors are charming. TFS,

Hello John,
A lovely calm summer day, when the canal nicely reflects the great sky!
A picturesque place and a well composed image with good foreground interest and rich colours!

Hi John,
It surely looks a wonderful place to enjoy a sunny Summer's day. A great compo, impressive greens and blues.

Hi John,
This composition of a beautiful place, abundance of trees, vegetation and with the small lake that reflects the blue sky and the clouds, has a nice visual and plastic effect.
The light is very well managed, and the saturated well colors, in an image by a lot of strenght.
The gray frame that you have added to the picture I think that it does not work, it is a bit sad in contrast with the great beauty of the image.
Nice work, my friend.

Wonderful capture of this idyllic little pond surrounded by the lush green trees and topped with the vibrant blue sky. I love the puffy white clouds reflecting in the deep blue lake. The colors are fantastically clear and the details sharp and pleasing.

Hello John,
A shot like a painting,What a lovely scene have you capture here! The colours are beautiful, your POV is first class and the light is excellent.The most striking thing about this lake view is the way you have controlled the light. The colours are very soft, you've avoided over-saturating what could be a pretty intense scene, which is a good idea I think.BRAVO

Have a nice weekend,Danos

It's very difficult to add something as a comment to a picture that has been seen 394 times and aready has 146 points, so I may not be very original...
I will just say that I like the way we can discover this small pond between the tree lines. The light was beautiful and the colors incredibly fresh.
