My own new site February 2013

Thanks for viewing.


Military history on this place 99 years ago.
This channel was a good follow target to the coast, without GPS
The First World War 1914 - 1918

The German troops arrived in our region about Maldegem, Sijsele, Damme to Bruges while the Belgian rearguard consisting of gendarmes and cavalry, drive out for themselves. Belgian gendarmes and cavalry soldiers, the Germans would still have shot from the ramparts of Damme. Then they withdrew in the direction of the Westhoek.
The Germans advanced further to Bruges (15 October 1914), Blankenberge and Zeebrugge. The day before was a great exodus to the Netherlands under way: by tram, with boats on the Damme canal, on foot, on horseback, .... In Sluis (Netherlands) was offered to approximately 15,000 refugees overnight in the town hall, the church, on barges, in erected barracks .. Netherlands was neutral in the war from 1917 to 1918 .. Stayed in Aardenburg than 25,000 Belgians. Throughout early October Zealand would almost half a million refugees are caught. After a short time a large number of Belgians came back home or they traveled on to England.

Bonjour John
Une belle image hivernale bien profonde et soignée comme tu le sais le faire.
Bravo et bonne journée.

Hallo John,

Bij binnenkomst van deze foto kon ik gelijk raden dat
deze foto van jou was: herkenbare frisse en mooie
kleuren en de mooie lijnenspellen en goede compositie,
die gepaard gaan met de mooie belichting.

Vriendelijke groeten,

Magnificent and untemporaty perspective, the depth of field is infinite!!!! A real beauty! Thanks a lot John!

Encore une réussite de toute beauté.

Hi John,
talk about excellent composition combined with a detailed and historical note, you do it all ! Excellent. Thanks for your contribution to TE

Greetings, Dieter

John, this shot is a great example of creativity both, by the mother nature and your optical vigilance. This is the second winter presentation today, which I welcome with a smile, for it takes me back to my childhood and shows the beauty of the cool season :)

Love the streight line formed between the two rows of tall trees, the canal and another row of trees, all align in an optimal focus point and depth of view.

Best regards, enjoy your day !!!


Dag John,
De foto wint aan originaliteit door je gekozen standpunt en het toevoegen van de ruimte voor de rijen bomen. De takken vooraan zorgen voor een goede voorgrond.
Verder is het uiteraard een bijzonder mooi landschap, prachtig gefotografeerd met de witte sneeuwlaag en onder een zachtblauwe winterlucht.
Vele groeten, Paul

Hello John,
A very interesting commentary to accompany this wonderful winter landscape composition. The perspective looking through the double line of trees is super and the depth of the image quite exceptional. The image also benefits much from the lovely ambient light and natural colours. Excellent work indeed.

Hello John,

I like the deepness created by those straight lines of trees and water. The light is very good and the colors are natural in this well done winter composition.

Best regards

Hello John,

It would appear that you have had more snow than we have here in Scotland. We had some snow last week but it has all now disappeared and we have strong winds and heavy rain.

This is indeed a wonderful study in perspective! A beautifully composed photograph with strong perspective (aided by your very short focal length of just 16mm), the parallel lines of trees at the right on each side of the pathway being nicely balanced by the other row on the opposite side of the canal.

Lovely soft light, fine colours and stunning details and sharpness.


Kind Regards,


Hi John,

The length of the path is giving depth and perspective to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the winter scenery. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.


Ola John ,
Fantástica visão com este corredor de árvores ficou com uma profundidade magnifica , gostei muito do contraste das cores , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo

Hi John
There again you are in your garden along this canal
Long perspective, mild winter light, perfect exposure
Another good one
best regards

Welcome John!
Excellent point of view, showing the two routes have chosen, water and land, and their prospects delineated fantastic rows of trees!
Nicely framed photo, good sharpness.
I cordially greet

I see in your photo gallery Polish Ursus tractors

Good morning John,

I just visited your site and it is very well done. You have a lot of talent and it shows.
I like this picture a lot because it offers nice perspectives and a lot of depth.

Have a nice day


Hi John
love this! The perspectives are just amazing and the DOF superbly managed. It is so beautifully crafted as a composition and could easily be a scene from a fantasy world. Magnificent imagery! Congratulations!

Hi John,
very nice perspective again! The canals looks best during winter time in my opinion, with frost and blue sky. Fantastic! It is very nice to take picture during such weather conditions, i tried it myself last week when it was very cold in Stockholm. I like the incredible depth here and the beautiful light&colors, well done!

This is the most important aspect of your nice composition, which in addition offers us the great beauty of the landscape covered with snow.

Ciao John,
bellissima questa prospettiva lineare che affascina.
Sei riuscito a trasformare questo paesaggfio nevoso in un quadro naif dalle sfumature pastello.
Una composizione di alto livello che ha saputo utilizzare al meglio l'elemento naturale che avevi davanti.
Apprezzabile anche il contrasto molto morbido che esalta la delicatezza dei toni.
In sintesi: uno scatto perfetto che merita un plauso
Apprezzabile anche la nota che accompagna la foto
Ciao e buona serata

Hello John, Excellent photo of this interesting composition with beautiful snowy landscape, very well composed, great pov, excellent depth. Lovely image with very good quality. Excellent and interesting job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this lovely work.

Hi John,
You truly have a gift for these perspective images, and every one is a pleasure to behold. This is no excepts, with my eye being drawn deep into the line of trees, which have been composed so well. Thanks for sharing this, I am learning a lot from these k

Hello John,
very beautiful composition of winter scenery with fantastic perspective. An excellent executed image. Perfectly well done like always.TFS.
Best regards,

Hello John - the passageway formed here seems to go on forever, and it's really very beautiful! Your shot fades in color well, from gray and snowy at bottom to bright and blue at top, and everything is reflected cleanly in the water of the canal. Very nice and peaceful image.


PS - thank you for the link to the website - many more of your wonderful photos to explore there!

Hallo John!
More depth nearly isn't thinkable. It's wonderfully effected by the rows of trees and all the different diagonals in the photo. This little alley between the trees nearly looks like a tunnel and the surrounding landscape really is a feast for the eyes. A walk - or a hike - there must be balm for the soul. Simply great!
Greetings from very rainy Westphalia awaiting some fresh snow tomorrow- and have a nice weekend!

Hello Johm

Superb capture and splendid look.So clever.I like the "taste" of minimal and the superb POV.Very well done!

Have a nice day

A very strong perspective image with so many POV's you could have chosen here. Fantastic shot.



Beautiful winter scene! Nicely captured with good lighting and dof with nice details. I like the effect of the mist in the mood. Well done, tfs.

Congratulations to your new site,is very nice,

Dag John,
De zonnige winterdagen die we vorige week hadden waren voor de fotograaf een prachtige periode om foto's te nemen. Dit is weer een mooie kenmerkende plaat van jou, een heel mooie moment opname van een wondermooi winters landschap in absoluut prachtig licht, perfect gepresenteerd. Je hebt je hier uitstekend geplaatst om die bomenrij er in te krijgen en een eindeloze diepte te creëeren. De blauw-witte kleuren zijn erg mooi en de foto straalt een bepaalde rust uit. Ook het spel van de takken tegen de blauwe lucht is een mooi spektakel. Kortom een schitterende compositie. Ik wens je nog een fijne avond en een prettige weekend hopelijk zonder regen.

Hello John,
the long channel,the alley between the trees which seems to be endless and beauitful winter scenery.Fabulous combination to create magnificent and unique winter image.The way you composed and framed the scene is for me a masterpiece(the endless alley catches really our eyes).But also overall quality with superb clarity,very nice and moody light and beautiful colors make your composition a delight for our eyes.

you have chosen an excellently working POV on the canal thus presenting a very well composed impression with a fantastic perspective. The beautiful light makes the image very attractive. My compliments!
Warm regards

Hi, John!
Excellent perspective with misty end. You could capture atmosphere of frosty day with great skill. The transition from the blue sky to the misty haze impressive.
Good luck.

i agree all. maybe it is too late to make a praise, but i believe the image's perpective allows me to add one! doesn't it?

Howdy John,

Impressive winter scene not only for the overlay of white snow, but also the uniformity of the parallel line of trees and canal, all in fine resolution.

And your historical note reminds us of the past horrors of wars in our idyllic settings.
This is also repeated in our American history.

Have a great winter,
best wishes,

Bonsoir John
La lumière est tendre et délicate,c'est un excellent cliché de l'hiver avec ces superbes perspectives formées par ces arbres.
Bonne soirée

Hello John,

Excellent framing with a wonderful perspective. Your framing was right chosen. Splendid presentation together with interesting note. Congratulations!

Best regards,


Hi John,
Nice winterlandscape well captured, geat depth result, I like also the beautiful light and the snow well white.

Great perspective, nice lines of trees forming a good corridor. Excellent composition and great colors and lights!

Beautiful winter view. Snow covered path on the shaft of the canal. Rows of trees with branches covered with frost are very beautiful against the soft blue sky. Very successful composition in excellent quality and in great colors.

Another of your trademark canal shots John. This is a fine image showing a great perspective with good depth, the light is excellent and it shows us wonderful, natural colours too.

Hi John
It's about depth and perspective, a nice winterscape with the row of trees offer the strong focals.
Great colors, lighting and contrast. Fine shot, TFS
Kind regards

Good afternoon John,
Lovely perspective on the triple row of trees, along the canal and the path alongside !
You managed the colours very well for a snowy atmosphere and I like the little blur at the end of the path, as if it was leading into the unknown.
Thanks for sharing and best regards.

Hello John. A winter like in a picture book. Snow, blue sky, trees in rows. The composition is really great. But the long winter will no longer remain, because you smell a bit of spring.

Anyway - great perspective, depth and composition. Interesting note.

Hello John,
you have created a very rich and rewarding composition out of a simple, natural and peaceful view. I like very much the intriguing play of perspectives that keeps our eyes alert and the soothing colours that render a very delightful atmosphere. The winter light has been used in an admirable way, its intensity is perfect. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

Om 1 of andere reden heb ik me wel eens afgevraagd,waar komen toch al uw punten vandaan??
Wel,meer en meer kom ik tot de overtuiging dat u buiten een goed fotograaf ook een sympathiek persoon bent die voor alles zichzelf is en iemand die geniet van het klassieke.
Ik denk dat daarom zovelen zich kunnen vinden in u.
deze foto bevestigd dit weer ten volle...

Bonjour John

Extremely good repetition of the dark leafless trees which also add a nice graphic element. Good sharpness and superb use of diminishing linear perspective & vanishing point. The blue sky and white snow go well together. Tfs!

Hello John.
Your gallery continues to fascinate me with stunning landscape and fine colors. The perspective here is brilliant and you are a master in this field.

Hello, John
Your photos have such amazing perspective, which is one of my favorite principles of artwork. It appears in this image as if the trees really do vanish in the vanishing point. I also like the contrast of the warm tone of the trees, and the afternoon sun on the snow with the cool blue of the sky. Very nice, indeed. Thanks for sharing.

Perspective, still your wellknown speciality and also here, it works perfect, a fantastic view !

Hi John,
A very interesting but very good crop. Fantastic colours and of course the depth illusion the trees create is extraordinary. I like the fact that there are only a couple of shades in the shot.

Rather pleasant.

Hi John

One row of trees after the other, it is a very graphic winter shot, an excellent example of DOF. Well done

Warm regards
