[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
a picture from a lovely, lonely walk around Mechelen, in the deep south of Dutch Limburg


I love those old sunken traces, the old walking roads in the countryside.

This one goes up (barely visible in this picture, just believe me) through a dense forest, deep and dark, into the light at the end of this leafy tunnel.

Hi Benny
Great tunnel effect through to the light. Looks like a good patth for a walk. The only thing that I might have done would have been to crop the sides a little.

Hi Benny,
Interesting contrast, well managed the light capture, original and photogenic, good idea, tfs.

Hello, Benny!

The light is very well managed here, the little illuminated part of the image makes a great contrast with the dark environment, the photo has an interesting and mysterious atmosphere! Wonderful composition! Very good job!
