Hi best friends, this is December 15th I want placing an anniversary picture, seven year TE member.
I want everyone say thanks you very much for the a lot visiting.
These picture is taken on one of my favorite places for a stroll or bike trip, with the camera in the hand.


Drongengoed is the largest contiguous forest in Oost Vlaanderen.
The central part of the forest is a klei rug called 'cuesta' Meetjesland, with the highest point at 29 meters above sea level (in Zomergem).
The substrate consists of an impermeable clay layer with a very thin layer of sand on it and is less suitable for agriculture. For centuries extended here also an immensely inhospitable moorland area. In the exploitation of the forest were two abbeys and the last pieces were active only in the 19th century developed.
At this time we find a mixed forest with heathland relics. Still remember a number of existing plants to the past and moorland: heather, heath, round leaf sundew and heath cartel. Another remarkable plant for the area's blade with his blue-purple flowers. These soils are free acid, for this reason, the evergreen foliage double sailing generally.
The forest is richness in mushrooms and moths. Some strange and beautiful breeding birds are black and green woodpeckers, nuthatch and pied flycatcher.
The raptors are doing well: buzzard, sparrowhawk, kestrel, hobby, tawny owl, long-eared owl its annual breeding birds.
The beautiful Drongengoed farm whose history dates back to 1242, is located in the Drongengoedbos.

I used a tripod

Warmest regards,

John

Hou je goed & nog veel plezier hier (en elders).

Hi John,

Congratulation for your 7 years on TE, I like the effect of the sun rays through the trees. The point of view is sending my eyes to infinity which is giving depth and perspective to the composition. The trees are a natural frame to the path. The morning light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Hello John,

Toutes mes félicitations pour cet anniversaire 7 ans sur le site TE!
J'ai toujours plaisir à visiter ta belle galerie et tu le prouves encore ici. Un endroit tout à fait charmant, joli vue une de forestière allée, pour découvrir l'âme de la forêt. On passe du jaune clair lumineux au rouge au sol...et par tant d'autres magnifiques couleurs.

Amicalement,
Wladyslaw

Hi John

That looks like a not ending way down the memory lane of TE, congrats to 7 years, that's a long time indeed. It is a very fitting shot of the autumn forest, very colorful and nice light management. Well done.

you are right, shrimps are not so good for cholesterol, but the locals here do not care about it. They talk about cholesterol, but must just eat the shrimps and prawns. I personally do not eat a lot, but as far as the doctor told me I have no problem with cholesterol so far.

Warm regards
Urs

Congratulations John, on your TrekEarth anniversary.

I have enjoyed looking at your photos over the past 7 years - even when I haven't been so active on the site myself.

I like the warm colours and the incredible perspective that you have captured in this photo. I hope it symbolizes all the wonderful photos to come in the years ahead.

All the best,

Hi John. A refreshing scene within the forests of Belgium. The well aligned trees make it look like a man-made pathway. The greens and yellows of the leaves enhance this well. I like the frame too. TFS. Murray.

Hello John, congratulations on the 7 years on TrekEarth.
This is a wonderful picture of the road in the autumn woods.
I feel just the silence and the warmth of the sun.

Hallo John!
Congratulations! I unforunately didn't manage this here on TE ...
The others here already have said all. This perspective really is amazing and fascinating. A walk there must be pure pleasure. A place to feel good indeed. The colours however for me are a bit too saturated in this picture ...
Greetings from Westphalia - drowning in snow!

Hi John,
This flat straight road provides great depth as it disappears into the woods.
The warm light filitering through the tall trees brings lovely shadows and vibrant colors.

Hello John,
A very nice autumn's view. A very beautiful pathway with the trees in a symmetric view, very nice.

Dag John. Amaai, is dat al 7 jaar? Dan is dat van mij ook al zo lang. Wel het is een hele mooie herfstfoto om dit te vieren en dat van een plaatsje waar je graag gaat. Mooie, kleurrijke foto met heel goede diepte (het pad lijkt bijna een tunnel). Een echte jhm..

Hello John,

Seven years is most impressive, seven years of wonderful images to show Belgium to the world!
This one no exception, a skillfully composed landscape where light plays cheerfully and colours are shining...

Congrats with the most impressive participation in TE!

Hi John,
Congratulations on your seventh anniversary on TE ! I wonder if you are the oldest member still active on the site ! Well, I hope you will continue for many more years to show us your beautiful pictures and to communicate with so many members around the world ! Communication is the best part about TE I think. There are beautiful photos on other sites too, but there isn't the communication around them.
I also liked reading the note. How nice to know that an unhospitable moorland turned into a beautiful forest. There will never be enough forests in the world, especially in these times of massive deforestation !
I wonder about the reason for choosing this picture to celebrate your 7th anniversary on TE. Is the long path a symbol of a long way into the future ? I hope it is...
I really like the path. The top of the picture is a little overexposed, I think.
Thanks for sharing anyway !
Kindest regards.
Marie-Louise.

Hi John
Indeed a beautiful landscape in vibrant autumn colors of this great nature shot. Picture with splendid depth and perspective in tranquil atmosphere. Above all the warm light is simply fascinating with brilliant color hues and saturation with fine sharpness and contrast. Interesting useful notes. A stunning picture, Well done, Congrats TFS
Warm rgds

Ciao John,
pensavo che la tua foto celebrativa per i tuoi 7 anni su TE era quella successiva a questa, poi guardando nella tua galleria ho visto che la foto celebrativa invece è questa.

Bello il contrasto cromatico tra il rosso, il giallo e il verde, creando una piacevole sensazione alla vista.
Ottimo il DOF.

Happy Birthday!
Francesco

Hello John,

I can't wait until the autumn season arrives. This pass in the photo seems to continue forever. The image full of beautiful colors. I wish that there is a place like this near where I live. I like going for a casual walks in town or in the forest. It's just at the moment it is very difficult and there is a very little time that I can dedicate for TE. But through your photo, I feel like I have already enjoyed my share of autumn. Tranquility of your image is very touching.

With very best wishes, John
Nobu.

Hello John,
the picture you chose for your 7th anniversary on the site is wonderful. This place has a very special beauty and atmosphere, its colours are very appealing. The perspective and depth you gave to the view are superb, they make us feel we have entered this path in the forest. The play of bright and dark tones is very effective and the atmosphere seems both vibrant and romantic. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Hello John,
You have presented beautiful colors and perspective on your 7th anniversary, as usual.

Greetings John,

Another shot with a crystal clear vanishing point, classic natural elements and good use of triangulation from collections of vertical lines. It is from back in the days when we had to post relatively small - so I suspect a more modern approach would be more subtle in the sharpening. Definitely worth revisiting. Regards, Iain.
