A new bicycle trip brought me to this beautiful location.
My picture was taken on a part of the estate "Goed ten Broeke" in dutch
This is the old farmhouses of the estate.
The resident has cooperated fully in order to make this picture
I wish everyone a very nice week.
Wippelgem is a rural village and residential center in Evergem, in the Belgian province of East Flanders. The village lies along the R4 between Ghent and Zelzate.
From the 13th century Wippelgem already mentioned in some writings and then made already part of the county Evergem. It was cut in half by the Ship Canal (from 1480 to 1500 Borg Raven Drum, now Burg Raven Stream). Result was a part of the neighborhood "Elslo", another part of the district of "Over-the-water".
There were several estates: Good ten Broeke (listed in 1351), Good at Woestijne (Woestine - Rostlijne, 1371), Good at Hulle (Castle Van Crombrugghe - Ten Bos, 1375), Good at Hageland, The Mill (1647, from 1863 Gerard Mill).

Interesting view on this farm and a good composition with this FG on the left side, light and colors are perfectly managed, tfs.

bella e tranquilla fattoria, in tempi sono cambiati e intorno alla fontana non ci sono animali che bevono, ma molti fiori che la addobbano.
Ottima composizione come sempre e bella condivisione, la vita è fatta di cose semplici, non solo di cattedrali e castelli.
papagolf21 (84064) 2014-08-11 0:25
Bonjour, cher ami John,
Lieu charmant qui est fort plaisant à contempler. Une petite longère, un puits fleuri, un environnement douillet, tout pour plaire.
Très jolie réalisation.
Royaldevon (27611) 2014-08-11 0:54
This looks like perfect biking country!
No steep hills, lovely scenery and fine weather!
I do like how you have used the small flower-filled building; it anchors the f/g, it creates immediate interest and it leads nicely to the pretty bungalow.
The long shadows and dappled light on the roof are very attractive, as are the sharpness of the exposure and the colours.
Is the small building a well?
Have a lovely day,
ChrisJ (95188) 2014-08-11 1:25
I like the arrow shaped structure at left, which balances the composition with its larger sibling or parent at right. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red orange roofs and the blue sky with impeccable sharpness. Tfs!
ourania (28400) 2014-08-11 2:58
a lovely simple composition to present this fine cottage and its special characteristics. I like very much the colours and the atmosphere, they're beautiful. Brightness and clarity are superb. The whole setting, even in its shady area, is delightful and inviting. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
dekanski (2746) 2014-08-11 3:06
very nice, and very informative!
Tue (27406) 2014-08-11 3:11
Een heerlijke foto van deze boerderij. Prima compositie en wat een prettig zonlicht, terwijl de schaduw ook weer mooi op het huis valt.
snunney (80731) 2014-08-11 4:03
The decorated well makes a lovley frame and serves to direct the viewer toward the charming farmhouse. A perfectly exposed image with colours that positively sparkle and superb clarity.
pierrefonds (55728) 2014-08-11 4:12
The distance between the lawn and the house is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the garden and of the house. The good luminosity is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
alvaraalto (6127) 2014-08-11 4:29
Echt een plek om in alle rust langs te fietsen en dan even de tijd te nemen voor een van je beroemde foto's. (en misschien ook nog wel een praatje met de bewoners)
Weer een prachtig Vlaams juweeltje.
timecapturer (46547) 2014-08-11 5:13
a glorious mixture of blue sky and summer greens make this so irresistible. It looks immaculately kept this little farmhouse, so full of character and real charm. A beautiful capture and presentation.
Have a good week - B.
holmertz (38697) 2014-08-11 5:18
Your bicycle tour brought you to another very neat and pretty location. I understand that the owners of the house didn't object to you taking photos. It looks so well kept that they should be proud to have it on the internet. Your composition is faultless with the small structure (a former well?) in the foreground. Superb colours as always.
seres76 (780) 2014-08-11 5:30
After returning from vacation, firstly I entered in trekearth web pages and looking for your pic. As always, you have shared an amazing photo. Nice colors and pow... Tfs...
Sergiom (56635) 2014-08-11 5:37
J'aime beaucoup le point de vue sur le bâtiment ainsi que ce qui semble un ancien puits à l'avant plan. Cela donne de la profondeur à l'image. La lumière est magnifique et fait parfaitement ressortir les détails.
Nicou (118192) 2014-08-11 5:42
quelle image de cette ferme superbe avec ces toits ocres la petit résidence charmant à côté ce rendu sur les pierres la belle végétation et ce deux boules d'arbre qui accentuent le charme de l'image splendide.
Bravo et belle soirée
saxo042 (37062) 2014-08-11 8:09
A beautiful and very peaceful rural scene. A well balanced composition and very attractive colours.
stego (23664) 2014-08-11 8:22
Another beautiful postcard like bucolic view, always very accomplished in therms of compo, light, colours and sharpness. The latter seems wee overdone, but it may be the monitor I am using now, which doesn't look appropriate to seee photos.
Alco (6760) 2014-08-11 8:31
Beautiful composition with that nice farmhouse and that well (I suppose) on the left side. Very nice greenery all around the farmhouse. Magnificent colors and blue sky. Very well done. TFS.
Have a nice day.
dcole (281) 2014-08-11 8:31
Very lovely view of this farmhouse. It is kept in very good condition for its' age. Excellent sharpness and color, thanks for sharing.
cornejo (29371) 2014-08-11 11:02
Hi John, very nice picture of this cottage, beautifully captured in this beautiful image with good sharpness, light and quality. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Best wishes from southern Spain.
ktanska (24408) 2014-08-11 11:58
A cute looking old house with fresh garden. That old well looks also very nice, now full of flowers. Looks like a very nice village for a bike trip.
maria-v1981 (10814) 2014-08-11 12:03
You always capturing beatiful photos with or without bicycle. The farmhouse was very well framed and with beautiful colours. I can see the house is very well conserved by the current owners and looks to be a very pleasant place to live. Very good addition to your portfolio.
PiotrF (5936) 2014-08-11 14:19
Nice view from Flanders. Interesting and unique place. Superb view of this farmhouses. Wonderful light and colours, perfect exposure, fine composition and exquisite details and sharpness.
batalay (35067) 2014-08-11 15:48
Another bucolic masterpiece, a simple subject photographed with perfect exposure and detail. The depth-of-field is so good that the brickwork on the small structure in the foreground is just as sharp as the tiles on the roof of the house.
Warm regards, John,
jjcordier (74564) 2014-08-11 23:18
Cette petite ferme est adorable et tu en as réalisé une excellente photo.
Graal (96014) 2014-08-11 23:50

I like this place :)
Beautiful house and curious windows.
Good POV and superb colors.
Strong sharpness ;)

jacquest (18405) 2014-08-12 13:36
A superb light to present this white house with it's contrasting red roof and flowered well. The details are sharp and the place looks inviting in this image of quality.
mcmtanyel (11631) 2014-08-12 20:05
What a charming little house! Is the structure on this side of the driveway a well (or the remains of one)? Great colors, texture and DOF combined in a very effective composition.
jcpix (12614) 2014-08-12 21:04
A new bike huh...I bet it will take you to just as many delightful locations as any before. :) It would certainly seem you have put it to good use, both bike and camera....yet another charming little scene in the countryside. Nice of the homeowner to allow you some time to photograph here. An every day setting with the same quality and attractive presentation that you continually provide. Bright sun, sharp details and focus, and an overall lovely arrangement. Enjoy putting on many more km's to the new wheels. :) Have a great day. Take care.
macjake (54124) 2014-08-12 21:19
always a pleasure to visit your gallery to see whats new or whats old in Belgium :)
its a bright lit photo with lots of strong textures.
a bit on the rough side, so its a different subject from you i think. Not as pristine as some of the large mansions or Castles you often show us :)
rychem (20885) 2014-08-12 21:56
Beautiful photo of the beautiful rural scenery, the high quality is perfect, as usual, very well composed
asajernigan (20906) 2014-08-13 3:10
This is a well balanced shot using the structure on the left to balance the house. The lighting is great and the photo has fine sharpness.
claudeD (31261) 2014-08-13 5:24
very fine view showing excellent fresh colors , sharpness and perfect clarity. You did an excellent fotojob here.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
wolf38 (31088) 2014-08-13 6:44
Hello John. A photo full of rural atmosphere. You feel transported back to the past. Very nice - and expertly presented.
Best rgds, Wolfgang.
adramad (36317) 2014-08-13 7:22
Lovely these farms, surrounded by lush nature, as in this case, with large trees, small shed full of flowers we see on the left, is a great complement to the beautiful building.
Great pic, beautiful natural colors, bright light and excellent sharpness.
Well done. I love it.
Have a nice day.
All the best.
ikeharel (54229) 2014-08-13 9:15
Bright daylight on mid-summer, helped and enhanced the details of the farm house and the beautiful garden in FG.
Trees on BG made a nice "frame" for the whole sight, charming place.
jmdias (53553) 2014-08-13 17:34
a lovely compo with the view of this rural house . I liked the contrast of the walls painted in white with the greens around. I guess this element at left is a well. interesting details.
omid266 (3653) 2014-08-13 22:14

eldancer1 (26110) 2014-08-14 7:28
Nice capture of this simple farm house, it looks like an old architecture, how old? I like the simplicity of the composition. Those types of building are built to last with good building materials. Nicely captured with good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
berek (35498) 2014-08-14 22:00
so cute place which is very pleasant to contemplate. A small farmhouse, a flowered well, cozy environment all.
John_F_Kennedy (42048) 2014-08-15 5:52
Interesting view of the house and its beautiful green environment. Great photo with great depth and clarity.

photoray (10983) 2014-08-15 20:03
Fine view of Farm Ten Broeken, brick well flower garden in front, well manicured landscaping, and the original house still in excellent condition after the centuries.
Thanks for sharing,
aliabazari (13325) 2014-08-15 22:56

A nice country landscape post taken under a lovely summer light to achieve a charming colorful scene. Well seen and captured from a well selected POV. Good work!
Have a nice weekend!
Hanssie (10375) 2014-08-16 2:52
Really nice, this farmhouse !
Beautiful weather, als always nice clear and sharp
and also this composition with the well in front of,
a beautiful photo, my dear friend
Buin (42262) 2014-08-16 10:32
This time no castle but nevertheless a beautiful - and somehow cosy - place. All here looks so tidy and well-kept and I'm sure that friendly people are living here. A place to feel good ...
You have had a wonderful light when taking this picture - and you took advantage of it.
Greetings from very wet and cool Westphalia! Have a nice Sunday!
PaulVDV (21173) 2014-08-17 5:37
Zon en veel groen, heel landelijk en uiterst rustgevend.
Ik weet niet of het een oude waterput is links vooraan maar in zijn nieuwe functie geeft het een prachtig verzorgde indruk. Verder helpt het ook om je foto van de vroegere boederij goed in te kaderen.
Uitstekende scherpte en diepte.
Vele groeten, Paul
boa (5881) 2014-08-17 12:25
not a castle this time but still an interesting shot of this charming house. It is a good balance in this composition, harsh light but an attractive blue sky and a good note, tfs!
Have a nice evening/
serp2000 (38864) 2014-08-21 6:17
Just a pleasure for my eyes! Excellent picturesque summer composition, perfect sharpness and attractive colors!
Well, I like the result of your new bicycle trip.
Have a nice day!
gildasjan (41212) 2014-08-22 5:13
Deux éléments architecturaux pour une composition simple et très belle.Bel accord de couleurs entre les tuiles et le bleu de ce ciel.Une petite demeur qui semble bien paisible.
clic (14598) 2014-08-24 9:34
This pretty water well, judiciously-located for giving depth to this romantic rural scenery, became over time a beautifully-decorated 'wishing well' that matches the period architecture across the street.
The excellent tonal depiction and sharpness are the figment of a "well of photographic knowledge"!!
Met vriendelijke groeten.
mkamionka (29774) 2014-08-24 14:19
lovely cottage and a great weather which resulted in beautiful vivid colors. I like the great clarity and sharpness here.
Very well done,

This is really a beautiful farmhouse,which can make a cover page of a fairy tale story book.I love the colors and the sharpness in this image.Very well done.TFS.
Angshu (55035) 2014-09-03 22:33
Nice picture of the estate. I like the estate, the houses looking good in fine light. The road girdles the house well.
I am curious about the structure in the FG...is it a well, which is not in use now?
carper (96) 2014-09-05 11:25
fraaie compositie goede kleuren mooie verdeling.
goede foto John.
danos (84383) 2014-09-10 11:04
nice the view of this section of the Farm Ten Broeken,with the brilliant light of the day to enhance the vivid colours of the scene.I like the variety of the greenery as the well chosen POV,showing all of its beauty.

Miguel82 (21778) 2014-09-21 6:36
Very sharp picture John, what a quiet farm, the lawns and the garden are perfectly maintained, good exposition and image resolution
Selmik (3188) 2014-09-29 9:50
beautiful and peaceful scenery of the rural area, sharp details and fantastic colours. Small garden tower in the front plays significant role in stretching perspective to the house itself. Accurate, clean, lovely picture.
