Hello best TE friends, the winter is almost over, we got different foggy days.
During my cycle trip saw I these pastorale scene with the canal and sheep as subject.
I try again create perspective and reflections in this canal.
To the left are the Netherland borders on 200m, I life close to the border, but borders without that we can see where the borders are exactly.
Lovely rural area, splendid for biking and stroll.

I hope you like it

Good morning, John,
Familiar place. I remember this channel in your photos.
Fine diagonal composition, an interesting note too.
Greetings from frosty Ural town,

Hi John!

Your photograph is a wonderful composition of geometrics and nature. You've got a very strong leading line which makes the photograph interesting despite the dull colours.

Hallo John,

da ist ja wirklich nur einen Steinwurf bis zur Grenze (hab mir das Map-View mal angesehen), tolle Landschaft für Radfahren, auch ween das Wetter hier nichtt so toll aussieht.. schöne Tief im Bild und auch ein klasse Motiv im Vordergrund..

schöne Grüße Bernd

Hello John
I like this long and quite moody perspective perfectly introduced by the sheeps in the FG, well placed and colorful spots in the image
Well done
Best regards
Have a nice week

Dag John,
De canada's en het kanaal vormen een mooi grafisch geheel om het vlaamse landsqchap te tekenen. En je hebt de schaapjes op het droge blijkbaar, een mooie levendige introductie tot het landschap.

Hello John,
The herd of sheep brings something extra to this splendid landscape composition. A wonderful long perspective along the tree lined canal, which disappears into the far distance in the increasingly misty atmosphere. I like very much the mood and the feeling of peace and tranquillity.

hi john
nice frame you captured.nice perspective you shot.
best regard

Superbe composition avec ce point de fuite à droite de l'image!!

Hi John,
I guess it's quite typical Dutch canal scene with strong perspective created by the lines of trees. But this herd of sheep make this original. I like how several of them have direct look at the camera.

A charming atmosphere here, beside being an excellent composition. The fog and the prevalent brown colour make it very sweet and soft, and the sheeps really enrich the image. It looks like a Flemish painting...
Well done,

A great winter photo without snow John. crisp and clear foreground with beautifully foggy background - well composed and taken.

Bonjour, mon cher ami John,
Lorsqu'un troupeau de moutons est uni, le loup n'ose l'attaquer.
[Proverbe chinois]
Transhumance à proximité des canaux ? Une chose est sûre la photo est belle et très originale.

A shot very attractive in thumbnail and as much attractive in big format. The first thing I like is the composition with these various colored sheeps on the FG and the beautiful perspective of trees. The atmosphere is great also, very particular with the fog.
You prove with this shot it's not necessary to have an animated sky to make a good shot.
Colors are very harmonious also and participate to the atmosphere.
Certainly one of the best shots of the day.


Hello John.
Charming landscape that transmits a pacific and bucolic environment, I praise POV with this group of sheeps that seem to look attentivly at the camera, very nice effect with the reflections of the line of trees in the channel. The imgen has a great depth with the line of trees that gets lost in the distance in the fog. Precious these soft colors.
Have to nice week.
Best regards.

Nostalgic canal of Flanders!!

Very well taken!!


Fond regards,

een aller aardigst tafreel John,
goede scherpte diepte en die schapen doen het goed op de foto, fraaie sfeer goed werk.
prettige dag verder.
groet jaap

Hi John,
The presence of the sheeps next to the canal creates a very bucolic image, full of peace, and a bit funny due to the fact that they seem to be looking at the photographer.
The escape of lines of the canal in an elegant diagonal offers us a deep and beautiful perspective, which ends when it gets lost between the fog.
A beautiful work, my friend.
Best regards,

Guten Mittag John,
i like it a lot, the POV is perfect with the sheep in the FG and the long row of trees dissapearing in the fog. Very good, tfs
Best wishes to Belgium

PS: Today there are no borders in Europe, only remaining in the heads of some people. Sad, but true.

Hi John
How is different this canal without snow
Great POV with the fog and the sheeps on right side
Have a great week

Dag John,

An another excellent winter's shot with a great depht. The alignements of trees and its reflections in the canal give a beautiful propsect effect. Very plesant elements of life with the animals in the FG. The fog well collected give a mysterious athmospher to the image.
Best regards,

Hello John,
The light between the trees is great and brings out the colours beautifully. A nice diagonal view to this romatic landscape.
best wishes,

Bonjour John
très belle scène de la vie rurale avec ces moutons qui broutent au bord de ce canal qui disparait dans la brume matinal.

Hi John,

The reflections on the water of the canal are assets to the composition. The presence of the sheeps has an effect of scale. The point of view is takaing my eyes toward infinity which is giving depth and perspective to the scenery. The trees are framing well the path and the canal. The fog is giving a mysterious effect to the scene. Have a nice day.

Hallo John!
Your region really is very "suitable" to take photos with an exceptional depth. Here I also like the a bit mysterious atmosphere - and of course the main characters in forground. But a bicycle trip in THIS weather - brrr! ;-) One can feel cold and humidity when looking at this picture.

Bonjour John,
Revoilà les fameux canaux qui ont fait ton succès sur TE ;o) Les rangées d'arbres sont toujours là, les reflets dans l'eau aussi, avec ce brouillard qui crée l'énigme en profondeur. Mais cette fois, les moutons sont présents, et nous regardent. Bien vu !

Hi John,

Ik hou van deze rurale landschappen Polder, vooral als ik ga met de trein.
Ik zou de moeite waard de trein stopt voor een beetje en dan denk ik dat het liedje van Jacques Brel op het platteland. Mooie vooruitzichten met het kanaal en de aanblik van schapen voegt meer aan de samenstelling. Een mooie sfeer gecreëerd met de mist. Bedankt voor het delen.

I see that in the Netherlands is almost spring. In winter still holds us tightly. Cool channel reaching to the horizon, and on its shore sheep, black and white. Wonderful composition.
Best Regards

Hi John,
The view here is very much imprived by the presence of all the sheep. They add a lot of interest to the grey weather and the straight canal!
Kind regards

Yeah you shoot the postcards like none other..am not sure about the light around the sheep is it..the light isnt too inviting but youve managed the scene well..you always have..

Bonsoir John,

Effectivement, ces chemins le long des nombreux canaux qui traversent cette région sont de vrais plaisirs pour les amoureux de la natures quelqu'ils soient, à pieds ou en deux roues... Et quand, en plus, on peut faire des rencontres bien sympatiques, ça ne gâte rien. Ces moutons ne semblent pas farouches du tout mais curieux de ta présence apparemment. Un joli et agréable coup d'oeil avec une atmosphère bien particulière. Merci John.

Avec toutes mes amitiés et une très bonne soirée,

Hi John, great photo. Recently we cough our dog and she is looking a sheep.
Love the dense fog and the sheeps colors.
The reflection on the channel is charming too.

Ciao John,
vedo che la neve vi ha abbandonato, bellissima scena campestre, il taglio che hai dato è perfetto.Complimenti

Hi John.

Again, another lovely masterpiece!!! Excellent, excellent atmosphere!

Hello John,

At least the snow is gone and so is the ice on the canal!
And I bet the sheep are happy for that too, at least they can fine some food now hehehe...
A lovely rural scene, well composed presentation with the strong diagonal!
I think I have to add these guys to my sheep theme...

Olá John, very nice group of sheeps with good balanced between blacks and whites. Good approach to them while showing a splendid perspective of the cannal. Love the trees disapearing in the fog very far away. Wonderful reflections too. Excellent winter shot that can be so beautiful as a summer version in spite of the white sky.
warm regards,

I like your serie of photos using the channel perspective and still succeeded to provide variation in the theme.
It is the case this time again with the sheeps.


Hello John!
Rows of trees are always a great suject for interesting pictures! Here's no different and I really like the conditions for the taking: fog, calm waters in the canal for a nice reflection and the sheep - everything in a very smart and attractive composition!
Sharpness, exposure, pov, dof and colors are very good too!

The colours remind of autumn, but it's of course the end of winter. The snow is gone! I guess the sheep want warmer green grass!
Once I did a cycle trip from Nederland to Germany. When I came back, by different small roads, I didn't know where the border was. Only I knew that I was in Nederland again when I reached a main road and I saw some features of the roads, different from the German ones.

Ciao John. Trees and ships in perspective. Pleasant idea. Intrigant misty environment. Vry well done.

Very lovely scene with sheeps.Interesting view with the fog on the canal and trees.

is magical this view of trees lined and reflections in the channel. All in a fog with the timid sheeps in the foreground. A picture really delicious.
Good day

Hi John,
very nice catch. On one hand this well organized frame and the symmetry and on another sheep posing as they want.
The fog makes a great effect. Because of the symmetry we can imagine that the trees line goes on indefinitely.
Very attractive work,

Hello John, Fine rural scene with the sheep well placed in the frame, some are posing for the camera, an interesting element but I think it would like just as beautiful without them, wonderful atmosphere created by the fog, excellent colour & clarity. Lovely scene, well captured & presented as usual to the high standard we have come to expect from you. Thank you

Hi John

Beautiful rural scene, lovely soft colours and excellent composition. looks like a painting from the old masters, superb.


Hello John,
You have captured the atmosphere of the foggy day very well and also the right moment with the sheep to enliven your photo. A good composition and soft colours, which give the photo a painting like impression. The sheep look like they are posing for you. ;-) Well done!

Hi John. You really caught the sheep atention. Great line made by the trees and the canal which makes a very long depth. Nice fog mood and beautiful colors. Nice composition and great sharpness. Great job. Have a nice weekend.

Hello John

Very nice composition with the curious and different coloured sheep in the foreground. The river and the line of trees leading the eye into the picture and the foggy landscape. Pastoral scene is a good description to summarize your shot. It must be a perfect area for a trip with a bicycle. Very nice. Thanks for sharing. Well done! Have a nice WE.

Presence of sheeps adds life to this cold and misty atmosphere. They are posing very nicely by the way. Best regards, Tolga

Hello John,
The grey sky is perfect for this late winter photo with all this wet, dead grass. There is a lovely perspective provided by the lines of naked trees gradually being lost in the haze. The sheep make a perfect foreground and their soft colours match the surroundings perfectly.

Deze had ik een paar dagen geleden bemerkt.
Het is zoals gewoonlijk zeer sterk gebouwd met een interessante diepte dankzij het perspectief en de voorgrond. Maar wat mij vooral ontroert is deze vreemde en aangename atmosfeer... Zeer mooi gedaan.
Nog een prettige zondag in Vlaanderen.

Bonjour John,
Superbe image!! Tout a été dit.
Super beau, bravo.

Hello Dear John,

This is a magnificent bucolic view of the canal and the flock of sheep. The reflections of the line of trees lining the the opposite shore make a second focal point. Warm regards, John.

Amazing tree reflex on this quiescent water.

I really like the atmosphere here John, it's like something from a painting. The sheep are a wonderful focal point and the perspective looking into the distance with the disappearting water and trees, is perfect. It's a fine capture and I wonder what it would look like in B&W?

Hi John,
really an outstanding view of this landscape. Excellent perspective and well placed subjects. You waited right for the sheep to be at the third.
Excellent graphical composition, with exciting view and sharpness.
So peaceful and calm location.


Hello John!

You composed wonderfully the scene; the life included enhanced the performance, beyond doubt!
The captured atmosphere was surely of your taste and another thing: perspective you love so much!

Thanks for your kind words, John
What a sympathic flock giving life to this spectacular array of converging lines, disappearing in the unknown!
Modest colors favour concentration towards the allover laced branches and the many verticals that draw attention on this pastoral tableau.
Many compliments.

Your winter shots are very special. I like how you caught the lambs attention, while it doesn't distract us from the great mood you imparted on that scene.

Heerlijk, ik kan zelfs de foto "ruiken" op deze manier.....:-))

ciao John,
indietro nel tempo e nella tua galleria per commentare questa splendida immagine generata su una luce molto particolare che esalta la foschia dello sfondo.
Il gregge, soggetto dello scatto accanto al canale, è perfettamente integrato nell'insieme,
buona domenica

Hello John, magnificent scenery, beautiful natural colors, lovely sheep and the touch of the early morning mist!
unbelievable work is your work!!!!!
warm regards always,

Hello John,
this area along the canal is always attractive and interesting, the seasons and the lighting conditions bring fascinating and dramatic changes to its aspect, colours and atmosphere. I love how you've included and placed this group of cute and bewildered visitors in your composition. They look atartled and a little awkward but are so well integrated chromatically and animate the moody and eerie scenery in a very intriguing way. Lovely capture, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

Hi John,

I suspect you're talking to the animals, when you are photographing them. They look friendly at you, are paying attention.

This picture I like very much. You have captured the autumn atmosphere very nicely and even the colors of the sheeps fit perfectly into the whole picture.

Very beautiful!

All the best


Hello John,
The ladies are a nice addition to your trademark scenery. (Around here, sheep are affectionately called ladies.)

That foggy morning the sheeps were grazing along the tree lined canal, grandiose winter sight, excellent perspective John, thanks

Good afternoon John,
A fogy scenery of the canal, beautifully shown in an a skewed angle upon, and those sheep herd alongside.
Some of the sheep were looking at you with the camera.
Despite grey sky and the mist, managed a wonderful perspective with your "trade-mark" of canal photos.
Enjoy your weekend,

  • Great
