These picture is the third picture out of the series about the White village Lissewege.
During my visit to the a lot artists and the much artworks, I found this small path and small bridge a nice place for take a picture.
I hope also for all the visitors the same, the flowers in foreground have to give colour, the reflection depth and perspective.
Thanks for viewing.
Between Bruges and Zeebrugge, not far from Dudzele lies the peaceful village Lissewege.
It is now known as an artists' village. Lissewege is also called the white village, the whitewashed walls of the houses.
For me Lissewege 'the white village" people are encouraged to paint white their homes.
The weekly market on Monday to help bring this village dynamics.
Along with the sculpture trail and many delicious restaurants is Lissewege on the map.
The many monuments protect the beautiful village.
The rules are stricter than elsewhere, but the results have become visible
Today, agriculture is the main form of industry.
However, it was mainly the textile industry that ensured that Lissewege was formerly one of the richest and most densely populated villages in Flanders, although another source reports that the village in the Middle Ages 500 inhabitants would hardly have had.

besnard (50031) 2013-09-15 23:16
Une belle image estivale ensoleillée et parfaitement cadrée avec la rivière qui se laisse deviner après le pont et les reflets des maisons aux toits rouges qui s'y reflètent.
jjcordier (67630) 2013-09-15 23:48
Un endroit charmant que tu as très joliment mis en image. Bon cadrage et jolie lumière.

I like here not only so picturesque architecture of these houses,but also bright,vivid colors you were able to brring out so nicely and of course strong contrast they create.Magnificent graphics of the image!
Small thing I noticed and which makes it even nicer is the reflection in the water(under the small bridge).Looks really nice.

Hi dear John
This is a little different style and theme from your daily postings but top quality remains unchanged.
So well carculated framework and the best color touch as usual.
Thanks a lot and have a good day! TAKERO

Bonjour, cher ami John,
Un cadrage excellent pour présenter avec talent cette rivière avec ce reflet des maisons.
La lumière est splendide.
J'apprécie comme il se doit.
ifege (9913) 2013-09-16 0:07
A good photo of what does look like a peaceful and colourful village with its good combination of red roffs and white walls.

limielski (2573) 2013-09-16 1:28
Very nice and charmful small town. I like these red roofs of the houses and the small bridge. TFS
Have a nie new week!
ikeharel (44395) 2013-09-16 1:42
Good morning John,
Small town street, with a view from a bridge over the small canal - yet, with a small reflection on its water.
Fine colorful shot, on a bright summer day.
Lovely compositiuon, well rendered.
subhendu_bagchi (21370) 2013-09-16 2:16
namaste John, another beautiful shot. The colourful village houses are superb. Specially the red roofs are really eye catching. You got it superbly using a nice POV. Light is very well managed as ever. Great image quality in every aspect. Enjoyed it a lot. Tfs.
snunney (73060) 2013-09-16 2:32
A fine perspective on this attractive village with its whitewashed houses. The framing greenery makes an excellent contrast, whilst the old bridge offers a good focal point. Very good light and colour contrasts, superb clarity.
Nicou (106307) 2013-09-16 3:41
quelle vue et iamge sueprbe quelle belle couleur quelle luminostié avec le reflet sous le pont de pierre et la perspective quelle iamge splendide.
Bravo et amitié
jacquest (16587) 2013-09-16 4:27
This is a well framed image with a good POV. The light enhances the colors and the reflections under the bridge add an interest. Excellent sharpness as usual.
pierrefonds (51196) 2013-09-16 4:36
The reflextions on the water are assets to the composition. The length of the canal is giving depth to the scene. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the houses. The good luminosity is bringing out the beauty of the colours. Have a nice day.
tyro (15841) 2013-09-16 4:42
You have given us an interesting note about this place as well as a beautiful photograph which looks so very much better and more detailed in its larger version on "beta" TE.
Your composition is delightful and the sunlight on the façades of the buildings on the left is lovely, bringing out all the textures of the stonework and red roofs as well as the bright coloured flowers in their windowboxes. The line of the canal leads the eye under the simple bridge onwards into the depths of the picture.
Lovely light and shade, fine colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.
Fis2 (77192) 2013-09-16 5:20
Good POV and composition.
A very interesting reflection.
I like colors and light.
Have a nice afternoon.
saxo042 (33996) 2013-09-16 8:29
A very peaceful and pleasant place. The red colours of the roofs are very attractive against the white houses. A well chosen POV with many attractive details.
abmdsudi (32795) 2013-09-16 9:50
Extremely luminous shot with the diagonal line and the houses make good point of view which is finely balanced to the sky area. The green natural framing and red roof contrast with the traditional white of the houses. Sharp in focus and great dof so well taken and your usual flawless work, Congrats.
cornejo (22796) 2013-09-16 10:07
Hi John, excellent photography of this beautiful and interesting composition with this interesting architecture, very well captured in this beautiful image with good sharpness, light and color. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
Noel_Byrne (13742) 2013-09-16 10:45
This is a beautiful place, and you have taken a shot that shows the architecture well but still makes the street scene look quaint and intimate and very appealing. The red colors against the blue sky is really vibrant and one that I always love to see. I also like how we can see down under the little bridge!
Thanks as always
gildasjan (39628) 2013-09-16 11:56
Un joli petit coin de Flandres,l'image est bien composée et j'aime beaucoup la couleur orange vive de ces tuiles qui se marie parfaitement avec le bleu doux de ce ciel.
Silvio1953 (106048) 2013-09-16 12:11
Ciao John, great view of lovely corner, excellent clarity, beautiful perspective, fine details, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
ourania (19024) 2013-09-16 14:11
this must be a very charming village, full of little surprises. Your composition is dense and has a fine balance. Despite the brilliant and vibrant colours of the buildings, the lovely vegetation, the superb textures and the pleasant atmosphere, it looks like evrything evolves around this mesmerizing reflection, a detail that you've placed in the frame ingeniously. You've managed the delicious light and colours excellently making the most of them. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
elenimavrandoni (10131) 2013-09-16 15:29
John, sometimes we see a beautiful scenery and we say that is "picture perfect"..when I see your pictures I say the same because they are all flawless in all aspects!
the big umbrella in the middle is like the icing on the cake!!beautiful picture!!
John, thank you very much for your comments, it means a lot to me!!

PiotrF (2380) 2013-09-16 16:10
Excellent view of White village Lissewege. Very good contrast picture with a nice sky and mini-reflections in water.
Colors, contrast are excellent. Very well done.
Alco (5493) 2013-09-16 18:48
Nice picture of that village.Good point of view to show us a the same time the houses and that small river.I like the reflections under the bridge.The flowers on the left add a nice natural touch of colors.Very well done.
fabbs99 (11440) 2013-09-16 20:22
Colorful shot of the White village Lissewege.Lovely colors and excellent exposure with very good management of light and sharpness.TFS.
Kugart (1776) 2013-09-17 1:43
A beautiful scene here here from this very picturesque little town. Good POV looking down the little stream with the bridge and the reflections of the houses on the water. Lovely lighting on the houses with their vivid red roofs well presented.
mohammad_H (7490) 2013-09-17 7:27
Hello dear friend

The image of the beautiful architecture of your point of view, the most important image features, full details can clearly see the blue sky, wonderful colors, beautiful gable

mcmtanyel (5580) 2013-09-17 11:22
Another very welcome addition to TE's collection, with beautiful colors and playful perspective. Very pretty!
mkamionka (27197) 2013-09-17 23:55
beautiful place very well spotted. I like the vivid colors and appropriate contrasts, it makes the photo eye catching. Nice POV which also allowed some reflection in the channel under the bridge.
kato (9693) 2013-09-18 6:27
You're capturing well this picturesque village by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the lovely houses with white outerwall and red roof with triangle shape which stand in a row on both sides of a narrow canal, and the surrounding greenery/colorful flowers. The whole is harmonized and balanaced well by a good arrangement and beautiful color combination with bright tone.
mjw364 (6142) 2013-09-18 13:39
Nice balanced composition with very sharp and clear details throughout. I like the use of the greenery to frame the FG and the light and shade that divides the shot.
eldancer1 (20950) 2013-09-18 14:46
I like the architectures of old Europe, I think they elegant and durable but with style. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
ChrisJ (91420) 2013-09-19 3:11
Good warm cold colour contrasts between the red roofs and blue sky with superb sharpness and density. The underpass adds lead in lines and enhances the composition. A good exposure on the highlights as we can still see all the brickwork. Tfs!
mirosu (8466) 2013-09-19 3:38
I like very much how balanced and elegant this houses arrangement looks as you have employed the elements that define the scenery, the colours and the perspectives in an excellent way. We get a great idea of this nice place and of its surroundings, depth and clarity are superb. Apart from that, even beyond the physical description, the picture is a delight to look at for its beautiful light and bright contrasting colours.
darkocv (727) 2013-09-19 4:49
nice and strong photo, i like details and point of view
have a nice day
macjake (45896) 2013-09-19 5:14
bright light and strong vivid color contrasts make this one very pleasant.
the white walls contrast so well with the red/orange rooftops.
and the red flowers help a bit too.
I can easily see the charm you mentioned about this town.
Waylim (23502) 2013-09-20 9:00
It is a very lovely shot of the charming city. The nice weather and good light really bringout the color and liveliness of the place and the inclusion of foreground with vegetation and flower really adds splashes of colors ot the wonderful image. Our vision follow the cannal deep into the picture. Excellent quality photo once again.
Buin (42128) 2013-09-20 9:37
Goedendag John! Hoe gaat et? ;-))
This is a really inviting scenery and all here emenates calm and beauty - though you wrote about many tourists. You framed the little street wonderfully with these flowers and the tree. I would like to have a cappuccino with you under this umbrella.
A place to feel good, to enjoy ...
Romano46 (11951) 2013-09-20 10:46
una visione delle Fiandre un po'diversa dai soliti canoni.
Spesso il paesaggio che si ha modo di vedere nelle foto appare grigio e triste, mentre al contrario qui il sole disegna la sua allegria sulle facciatedelle case insieme ai tetti rossi ed ai gerani dello stesso colore.
Di quella che è l'immagine stereotipata delle Fiandre rimane solo il canale che corre pigro tra le case.
Una composizione molto piacevole arricchita da bel contrasto e colori ben definiti .
Ciao e buon fine settimana
boa (4697) 2013-09-20 12:16
picturesque and peaceful, Lissewege must be quite popular to visit. I would not mind to sit at a cafe and enjoy the lovely atmosphere and surroundings:)A well choosen spot for this shot, diversity of flowers and beautiful architecture makes this to an interesting scene, well done!
Have a nice weekend.
carper (96) 2013-09-20 13:20
je hebt er iets moois van gemaakt John,
ik heb hier nog niet zo gek lang geleden ook rond gelopen en foto's gemaakt, mooie compositie en kleuren.
Fijn weekend vriend.
Royaldevon (21693) 2013-09-20 13:42
I have to agree, this is a great place to take a picture. The attractive flowers and vegetation anchor the f/g and set the mood for this tranquil scene. You set us the problem of which way to travel first; shall we descend beneath the bridge or follow the upper route to enjoy the houses with their attractive, colourful roofs? I suppose it depends whether you are a romantic or a detective!
As always, great exposure with sharp details.
My warm regards,
emka (64550) 2013-09-21 0:17
Hello John, It seems very pleasant village. So well cared and with many beautiful flowers. Nice POV with some reflections. Pleasant sunny photo.
Warm regrads MAlgo
PaulVDV (17497) 2013-09-21 1:58
Een andere prachtige voorstelling van het charmante Lissewege. Een prachtige afwisseling van de witte gevels met de rode daken. Een kleine maar perfecte weerspiegeling in het kanaaltje. Ik veronderstel dat je foto's steeds hetzelfde kanaal tonen ... of zijn er meerdere ?
Het groen en de bloemen zorgen voor een mooie voorgrond en een goede inkadering.
Vele groeten, Paul
daddo (20677) 2013-09-21 4:18
Hi John. A pretty image with its attractive houses sporting white walls and orange roofs. Lovely composition filled with colour and excellent sharp details. Best regards. Klaudio.
ricardomattos (3562) 2013-09-21 8:50
Nice colors and a nice composition. Sharpness and lights well managed.
halikarnas (5924) 2013-09-21 11:50
Büyük Usta John,
Senin fotoğraflarını seyretiğim zaman fotoğraf çekmenin nekadar zor bir iş olduğunu anlıyorum.
Damların renginden başlıyalım istersen: Kırmızılar fotoğrafın ağırlık merkezi.Alt sol ve sağ köşedeki yeşiller bu kırmızılara göre tam yerinde.
Esas vuruşu yapan ise köprünün yarısını kesen gölge;Muhteşem bir gölge ile fotoğraf tam bir kompozisyon abidesi.
Seni tekrar tebrik ediyorum.
lousat (64601) 2013-09-22 2:23
Salut John,composition tres riche et bien capturee',le top sont les reflects dans l'eau ,un corner tres joli et une photo de grande qualite' comme d'habitude.Mes compliments et belle journee',Luciano
williewhistler (10005) 2013-09-22 3:31
you have used the attractive flowers and the green foliage very well to frame the pretty buildings of the village.
The reflections beyond the bridge add an interesting feature to a very well composed scene.
Kind regards Les.
mesutilgim (73216) 2013-09-22 4:03
Hello dear John,
Another "topclass" capture in your gallery !
Everything from A to Z is just more than perfect but my favorite in this compo is the reflections on the watersurface uınder the bridge ! It's just great.
TFS and have a nice Sunday
Best regards from the beatiful city at Boshphorus
photoray (6828) 2013-09-29 17:46
Idyllic view of Lissewege, the classical village architecture, flowers and canal, all add up to a very romantic place.
PS: The American flags at "half mast" at the Boise Capitol were due to another murder shooting. Unfortunately in America we have too many mentally ill with guns and murder is too frequent.
npecanhuk (56480) 2013-10-01 18:27
Lovely and charming place!
Beautiful and attractive picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, black borders, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
I love those little reflections right after that small bridge (under it)!
TFS - congrats,
serp2000 (33437) 2013-10-05 23:17
Good morning, John,
What can I say? This is very interesting series from the Lissewege village.
Just a masterpiece! Perfect quality, very nice vivid colors, fine details. Good note, but I think that a productions of a local textile industry are more expensive than these analogue from Asia.
adramad (31195) 2013-10-07 8:04
Very nice view of this charming population, which has buildings with charm, but little water in the canal, although we see the background plays very well for the beautiful reflections.
A superb light management, sharpness also
is perfect to enjoy the picture.
Very well done.
Have a good day.
jmdias (48515) 2013-10-11 7:35
curious urban view. I liked the small details like the flowers and this interesting bridge over the small canal. nice details to enjoy. TFS.
Hanssie (10067) 2013-10-16 0:50
