I was these morning very early in morning with my camera toward Ursel, a place for come to quiet.

Yesterday evening we got a lot rain almost 15mm, this was a excellent moment for take a good image with misty sunbeams.
You can see the result.

The Drongengoedhoeve is a historical site in the middle of a large wooded area.
Here we imagine themselves back in time and can enjoy culture, some crafts of yesteryear, but certainly also the silence even to unwind and enjoy a refreshing glass of water on our sunny terrace or in our warm cozy inn.
Everyone can abdijhoeve visits at any time.

The sportsmen among us can ever farm as a base to use to capture beautiful walks in the woods with a nature reserve or to a strong start cycling route. On the farm can be good to get out maps as the most beautiful spots in the area to learn them.

Be sure to be tempted to agree to come here because it allows you the pearl of the Meetjesland know.

I place the same picture as second image, only with a other frame, this for more contrast.

I wisch everyone a nice weekend,

Hello John,
Wonderful morning mood of this early shot.
Yo are right to go out very early in the morning when the weather is nice because this is really the best time to catch magnificent lights like this.
I like the rays of the sun going out of the trees and the way you used the road on this very nice composition.
Great work!
Have a nice week-end.
Best regards, Christian

Hi John,

Nice quiet morning feel to this image. I love this time of day for the solitude and the empty trail with lovely light beams really brings that feeling to me.

Hello John,
A wonderful summer morning mood in this photo!
Those light beams are amazing. The colours are very beautiful. The composition is excellent as well. To my taste a simple frame would be best, not to distract too much from the beautiful image itself.

Hello John,
Very nice scene captured here, full of light with nice composition, colours and sharp details, sunbeams look excellent, I would like to see the image larger rather than the bold wihite frame around it though,

Hi John

wonderful early morning shot that is full of atmosphere with the rays of light streaming through. Nicely composed, beautiful colours.


As usual, the picture is wonderful and makes me dream of a visit to that forest. Regarding the WS and the framing I really prefer the much simple white frame of the main posting.

Une belle composition avec ce chemin bordé d'arbres qui structure l'image et surtout un formidable jeu de lumières filtrantes à travers la végétation. Très beau.

Hi John!
For you, it must be an easy task, because you always do such a great job in this kind of picture, however, for me, it's very difficult to control de right amount of light to create such wonderful effect with the trees!
Once more, the result of your talent is this fantastic and dreamlike photograph!

Hola John.
Wonderful early morning scene with sun rays coming through the the trees producing a nice view of this magnificent nature's shot. Good colors and sharpness. Great details and light, your large frame decreases the size of your excellent shot.
Well done.
Best regards.

het is een fraaie foto John,
Ik hou hier wel van dat weet U. Als het weer het toelaat zal ik de komende maanden ook weer eens proberen een shining op te vangen, gode compositie, goed fotowerk. Ik denk dat dit de vierde keer is dat ik U foto probeer te beoordelen. Een beoordeling waar zeker een half uur tijd in zit denk ik. Ja het is geen pretje als je de foto's niet meer kunt openen die je wenst te openen. Het moet niet gekker worden dan zo, want dan stop ik ermee.
prettige avond John

Hi John,

The trees are a natural frame to the path. The capture of the rays of the sun is an asset to the composition. The luminosity is enhancing the colors. Well done, have a nice day.

This is very very beautiful forest and extra great light in this forest
Place for walking and joining

Hi John,
A great work with the exposure in this capture. I like much the beautiful effect of the sunbeams that enter across the branches of the trees, illuminating the soil and the vegetation in this forest.
It is a beautiful photo, done skilfully and with many elegance in the composition. The alternative image is great, I love the contrast by its dark frame.
Friendly regards,

Goedemiddag John,
Dit is echt een prachtige foto, het is fantastisch mooi om al die zonnestralen door het gebladerte te zien komen. Heel mooi ook om te zien hoe het licht op het groen van het gras en de struiken valt. Goed contrast ook met de omringende delen die in de schaduw liggen. Bedankt!

Hoi John,

Ah, mooi hoe dat licht zo valt.
Over fietsen gesproken; Ik ben net zelf terug van een trip met een vriend van een goede 60 kilometer. Het licht viel niet zo mooi, maar het was nog steeds een sportieve trip ;-).


Hi John,
Simply stunning shot. The diagonal form of the shafts of sunlight really make this shot a winner. The small branch in the foreground is well placed. Colors and sharpness are well rendered. Light management is perfect.

ciao John,
fantastic shot,
also I love to go out very early in the morning when the weather is nice because this is really the best time to catch superb lights and shot like this.

Bonjour John
c'est le genre de paysage que j'aime bien, un rayon de soleil qui perce dans la forêt, de toute beauté.

Dag John,
looks like coming autumn with those rays of light through the leaves. The crossing is a good point for the eye to find some context in this scene of the forest. The light is wonderful.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Amazing mood expression, lighting, shadows and colors.

How beautiful light! captured exquisitely misty sunbeams in the beautiful woods. Depiction of green is also excellent. Superlative image quality.
Have a nice day, Hisashi

Superb morning sunbeams, I love the composition, even the off-focus branch in the foreground is so soft it adds a counterpoint to the very sharp background, and the sunbeams are simply wonderful.

Hi John,
The Sun Rays inspire me to comment. The morning is greeting you not only with purposful light but also with the calmess in the soroundings.

John, you are a master of the light I think, I have tried this often but never with your wonderful results. Great detail and a fine capture.

Hi John,
A stunning forest scene. Although the place looks lovely, I wonder if many of us would be able to get something vaguely as appealing as this photo because most of us lack the talent and skill to manage the light so well, either compo wise or technically (at the time of shooting and at PP).

This is a very special image capturing a peaceful and beautiful atmosphere. The slanted sun rays through the mist are a superb centerpiece; the lovely leaves and trees framing the sunbeams are shown with warm color and sharp details. Very fine work!

Hi John, very nice forest photo! Excellent lights ,colors and composition!



Hi John,
You seem like having re-invented the light, while walking in the forsest. The beam of light is the fantastic element here. The colors are great.

Hi John,
a beautiful play with light here. It's a very atmospheric shot and techically speaking this is the worst scenario to shoot; strong light coming from the trees and deep shadows..you managed to get a great result here as if we can see great details throughout thanks to the great light management. A fine work indeed.

Olá John, this light is magical. Wonderful framing and POV from a distance. Love the forest environment around the marvellous beams of light. I have the sense that you are hidden like an animal so no one can see you ;-) Superb exposure and contrasts. It's a pleasure to look at this image.
wish you a nice Sunday,

I like the perspective here. The path leads your eyes in the depth, where you can find details of the branches, thanks to a sun-rays. :-)
The rays also helped to diversify colors and contrast between the path and the other parts of the image. That makes it more interesting and prompts an eyes to focus on a specified place at the first glimpse.
Congratulations, and regards from Poland!

Hi John,
You are an expert of taking these sunshine rays coming from behind the forest. I tried - but yet have to learn more.
Fabulous sight, grand light and clor's contrast.
Magic touched...

a wonderful natural scenery, you are offering us an intimate view in this full frame, the play of light and the colours are superb, the forest looks like a peaceful refuge. The shady areas provide balance and contrast, the rays invading the frame from the background and reaching up to the nearest foreground make a captivating effect. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,

Hello John,
Another magical forest scene with the rays of the sun penetrating through the trees. The fog adds an element of mystique, completing the picture.
