Archive 2016 Aardenburg Netherlands City hall. ,
10 Km of my home

Aardenburg is a city in the Dutch province of Zeeland. Aardenburg is located in the western part of Zeeuws-Vlaanderen and belongs to the municipality of Sluis. Aardenburg formed an independent municipality until 1995, including the centers of Eede, Sint Kruis and the hamlet Draaibrug.
Aardenburg was already inhabited in the Middle Stone Age, but only became a really large settlement in Roman times, when after 174 a castellum was built for the coastal surveillance of the borders of the Roman Empire. Aardenburg was still on a river, which gave a connection with the sea. That Aardenburg at that time would have been called 'Rodanum' is an attractive but not yet proven hypothesis.
The fort was abandoned around 225; the proof for this is that when a civilian temple was founded within the military walls. Between 260 and 274 in the time of the Gallic empire Aardenburg was again used as a fortress. It was evacuated because the natural environment changed. An attack by Germanic tribes may also have played a role.

I hope you enjoy

Hello dear John,
Another nice capture in your gallery, of this beautiful autumnal scenery.
Taken with perfect pov and light management.
Nice warm autumnal colors and perfect sharpness.
TFS and have a nice weekend

Hello John,
This was two years ago, but soon we will see these colours of early autumn again. The trees make this photo very pleasant, but we don't see much of the buildings. That is fully made up for by the nice colours and the beautiful light. The photo is as sharp as ever.
Kind regards,

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

Hallo John,
Ik wilde al zeggen dat de herfst hier al vergevorderd is, maar ik zie dat de foto twee jaar geleden wat later in het najaar genomen was. De geel/groene bomen in het heldere zonlicht zijn prachtig.

Olá John,
bem bonito mesmo esse prédio da prefeitura, e gostei da praça arborizada. Boas cores nesse dia ensolarado.

Hi John,

The trees are framing well the building. The point of view is showing the details of the city hall. The light is giving good colors rendering. Have a nice dya.


Hi John
An uplifting nature beauty to view combined with good clarity, surrounding detail and a fine depiction of seasonal change welcoming the transitional autumn colours. Superbly framed with brill light and balanced in exposure, I think the rich colours could not be better. Great photo works, Congrats. TFS
Best regards

Hi John.

A clean cut shot presenting the nature in the residential area, the colour on the trees is slowly showing the arrival of the autumn season in advance. Well composed overall, a pleasure to look at a scene. TFS!!!

Bonjour, cher ami John,
Ambiance rieuse malgré l'automne, les arbres changent de couleur et s'apprêtent à affronter l'hiver.
L'ensemble respire calme, sérénité et beauté.

Hallo John,
Hier zien we dus het stadhuis van Aardenburg en vermits dergelijke overheidsgebouwen meestal centraal gelegen zijn, krijg ik de idee dat het leven in Aardenburg zonder al te veel stress verloopt.
Rond het stadhuis werd duidelijk veel ruimte en groen voorzien.
Het licht op het gebladerte is schitterend. Het lijkt een prachtige herfstdag.
Mooi met de afwisseling van licht en schaduw op het plein.
Vanuit je gekozen standpunt zijn er geen takken die het zicht op het gebouw belemmeren.
Prettige zondag, Paul

Hello John,

Wonderful Autumn colours of gold in the trees, contrasting well with the blue sky. Good sharpness and the central fg path adds good lead in lines. Tfs!

Hello John,
Autumn starts today so it seems only right to present us with an autumnal composition even though it dates from two years ago. A pleasant enough scene benefiting from beautiful warm lights and colours and excellent sharpness.
