A Dutch village on 8 km of the Belgian borders

Waterlandkerkje is a village in the municipality of Sluis, in the Dutch province of Zeeland. The village, located on the road Oostburg-IJzendijke (N676) and the road to the Belgian border towards Waterland-Oudeman and Sint-Margriete, has 538 inhabitants (January 2012). The main facilities of the village are the village house, the clubhouse of the curl club "De Meermin" and the village bus of Stichting Dorpsbus Waterlandkerkje for mainly the transport of primary school students to the public elementary school "De Schuttershoek" in IJzendijke.
Waterlandkerkje is regionally known for its many church concerts and the "Meerminnefeesten", which are organized every year during the weekend after Pentecost. Nice to know: Waterlandkerkje was founded in the 17th century on a three-storey dyke. The fragile 'hall church' was built in 1674. Waterlandkerkje is one of the most beautiful place names in the Netherlands.
I hope you like it.

Hi John,

The diagonal line of the street is creating dynamism. The point of view is showing a double perespective of the architetcure of the building. The colors are excellent. Have a nice day.


Dobar dan, gospodine.
Lep pogled, interesantan i dobar tekst ...
Lepo pokazano, dobar kontrast, lepe boje.
Lepo mesto i stara arhitektura, lep deo sela.
Dobar tekst o koriscenoj tehnici i elementima snimka.
Zelim vam lepo popodne, sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.

Ciao John
la luce è completamente diversa dalla precedente foto e si vede, il soggetto non è bello come il precedente, ma la facciata con i fiori è deliziosa.
Buona domenica

hello John,

You had a nice bike excursion abroad, to Holland, haha. atteractive composition. I like the geometry of the pavement. Lovley building with the flowers in the windows. Great light, colours and sharpness. Have a nice Sunday


Hello John,
Excellent point of view on this most attractive building that now seems to house a restaurant. I like the lights and colours and, perhaps most of all, the beautifully rendered textural details to be observed in the brickwork of the walls and paving.

Hello John, great picture in this interesting and beautiful place, very well captured in this beautiful image with good sharpness, light, color and quality. Very good and interesting work perfectly done, my congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.

Good afternoon and happy start of the week.
Best wishes from the south of Spain.

Hi John
Esthetically pleasing country house full of great details, rich colours and subtle light which makes this stand out in the setting and well set off against spotless blue sky. The textured paths catching the eye as well as strong additional point. Peaceful and gentle shot, Congrats
Best regards

Hello John,
It's a nice building, mainly thanks to the red flowers upstairs and the green plants downstairs. From this angle we also see several nice diagonal lines of the streets and the walls, but most of all this photo has fantastic colours and sharpness. These qualities help the photo make a great impression.
Kind regards,

A beautiful corner perspective of the charming house with flowers on its windows and plants at the façade.
The paved road also added a nice elements enable to appreciate this wonderful place.
Good afternoon,

Hallo John,
Een prachtig gezicht op dit dorpje op een schitterende zomerdag met een mooi zonlicht en een prachtige blauwe lucht. Het blauw en het groen gaan goed samen met de warme tinten van de straat en het huis. Het kerktorentje steekt mooi boven de dakpannen uit.

John, here you show us a beautiful place, a place, to feel good, to recreate. All looks friendly and tidy. I like the brick pavement very much. Let's have a coffee there ... ;-)

Hello John,
I wonder if the name of the village means Waterland Church. I love the cobblestone streets and the brick buildings, filling the frame with rich textures. 👍👍
