My new site 180 new pictures

These picture has been taken too Wippelgem Evergem, a small village on 8 km of Ghent and 8 km of the Netherlands border.
This is the second picture of this castle, but this not it castle but the stables, coach house and home gardeners (now brasserie).

The stables, coach house and home gardeners (now brasserie).
The stables are very traditionally made from precious wood and solid finish. They were used for storing the row and carriage horses. In the stable is a counting system which is connected to a funnel in which oats is higher. The ration could thus be dosed per horse.

Besides the stables we have the coach, which later became the garage for the car.
At the coach and half it was built in the ladies pavilion, which unfortunately disappeared in the 1990s. It was a small sitting area on the water, with benches built into the barn and a present, semi-covered terrace. A gossip and crafts corner for the women.
Adjoining to the stables is the home gardeners. It must be clear who lived there. The house had a small yard with storage spaces and rabbit hutches.
Adjoining the home gardeners and above the stables were the rooms for the auxiliary gardeners. Striking was that the gardener could open the door to the residence of his helpers, but not vice versa. The gardener was responsible for the management of orchards and large walled kitchen garden.

Bonjour John
Une belle lumière sur les dépendances du château. La végétation fait un bel encadrement, l'eau est paisible, les reflets bien saisis et les canards barbotent tranquillement dans ce cadre enchanteur.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

Hello John.
A very pretty picture of a lovely small chateau, framed beautifully by the foreground flowers and tree on the left. A really idyllic Summer scene.

Hallo John,
Een prachtige kleurrijke foto in een echt zomerse atmosfeer.
Mooie omkadering met de boom links en de bloemen en het riet onderaan.
Het water en de groene omgeving waarin deze gebouwen zich bevinden zorgen voor een idyllisch plaatje. De lichtgekleurde facades worden prachtig weerspiegeld in het blauwe water.
De vele eendjes vervolledigen het uiterst charmante beeld.
Vele groeten, Paul

Hello John,
A beautifully lit composition of these attractive stable buildings come brasserie. I like the framing by the vegetation and the lovely reflections in the softly shimmering waters. Top class colours and clarity.

Hello John

A beautiful portrait of these buildings. A well framed picturd with excellent quality. Interesting reading in your note. It`s great that they have found other, income-generating uses for the old houses, which helps keep houses maintained. Great work, John. TFS. Have a nice day.

Hi John, great shot of this lovely view of the beautiful place, forming a beautiful and interesting image, captured in a good frame with good clarity, depth, beautiful light and lovely color. This is a good, charming and interesting job very well done, congratulations my friend. Tfs.

Good afternoon and happy week.

Hi John,
what a lovely picturesque scene!
I like the vivid eye-catching colors. The house is charming but most of all it is presented in a great setting with a nice framing. Even the sky is so pretty, and you got the reflection too. Everything seems to be perfect.
Excellent work,

Hello John,

This is a beautiful image with nice reflections in the water. I like the framing with the trees at left. The distance in the water gives deepness. Excellent colors and remarquable sharpness and a perfect sky.

Best regards


Hi John,

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The wideness of the pond or lake is giving depth to the scene. The point of vieww is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the stable and of the house. The quality of the light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.


Bonjour John,

Comme toujours, une photo impeccable. A partir du point de vue, du cadrage incluant la verdure sur la gauche, de la beauté de la maison et de son environnement et des couleurs parfaitement saturées.

Hi John,

The composition is very pleasing at sight, has a high quality color, and a magnificent light which give it a great aesthetic power.
A beautiful work, my friend.

Mid-summer green all over, flowers in full bloom, and the ducks sure enjoy the scene as well...

A fine picture of this house on the other side of the water...with nice reflections. What I like most is the way you framed the scene with the foliage & the lovely blue sky which provides a fine contrast! Well done!
Best Regards

Good Morning John,

My first thought is how well you have insinuated the mood, by framing the shot with natural vegetation. We feel to be peeping through a discreet hole at this beautiful, idyllic scene of lazily swimming ducks on a tranquil pond. The stables make a very effective focal point and we are treated to a shimmering reflection of them, too.
Excellent sharpness and well saturated colours.

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)

Ola John ,
Lindo reflexo desta pequena casa neste lago , bonito dia com este céu azul , boas cores cheias de vida , bom ponto de visão , parabéns!!

Un bel avant plan aquatique devant les étables du château.
Très bonne luminosité estivale ambiante
Une image très appréciable
Bonne soirée

Hello John,
The horses of this castle must have lived better than a lot of people if these are the stables. It's a lovely view very nicely reflected in the pond where ducks swim quietly. It's a very nicely framed photo with vegetation nearly all around. And you seem to live in a country where it never rains:-).
Kind regards,

Hou John,
Een fijne plaat in mooi licht met mooie reflecties. De eendjes die erdoor heen zwemmen dragen bij aan de charmante sfeer en het natuurlijke kader en de sterke details dragen ook bij aan het grote kijkplezier hier !

You added a fantastic bucolic mood around the scenery by including a vegetal frame from wall to wall that circles the luxuous stables for horses equipped with an ancestor of automatic feeding device.
The elegant construction reflects beautifully amongst the swimming ducks.

Again you have found a favourable point of view in order to show us an old and worth seeing building. It seems to swim on the pond or presumably the moat. I love the wonderful summerly atmosphere in the whole scenery. In combination with the informative note an excellent and exemplary contribution!

These beautiful photos you've been posting have put Belgium on my bucket list of places to come visit. The photo here is so calming and tranquil. I can see myself getting up in the morning to have coffee on my deck and throwing a fishing line out in hopes of maybe catching our breakfast, or maybe just sitting with my eyes closed, listening to all the sounds of nature.........this is what I have received from viewing your stunning presentation John.......THANK YOU!!

Hello John,

You're capturing well this suburbs scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to know and see the pastoral stables, coach house and gardens of Belgium. It seems to function well as an architecture from your good note. It's interesting in central architecture with windows for me, especially. And, it's harmonized well with summer bright sky.
Have a nice week.

Kind regards,

Hello John.
That marvel of composition, the place looks idyllic and telecasts a feeling of peace and quiet, I love the POV chosen with these flowers in the foreground, the beautiful pond with ducks streaked reflections and is ideal, beautiful home and a sky nicely complements spectacular composition.

Hello John,
I would love to live in one of these houses that look like boats floating in water. I wonder how they deal with moisture, though. Lovely reflections dotted with a few ducks.

Hello John! Amazing reflection, fine mirror effect. Nice clouds. Very nice lightness and colours. Superb architecture. Perfect cut and frame. Well done!

This is a beautiful place, and so well presented in your photo with the strong blue sky framing it.
