End of WAR I 1918 11 11, 95 year ago.
When get we no War more in the world, I hope tomorrow!
A friend asked my for to make a few picture where he work, one a two time in week.
On 20 km of my home with my electric bike the perfect distance.
I saw this coach house between the nice autumn colours of the trees.
This was the picture of the day, in a very quiet environment.
During my visit was everything very calm without wind and a little bit autumn sun.
An image of the former St. Andrew's is available on the basis of the map of the Liberty of Bruges from the hand of Pieter Pourbus . The plan was manufactured between 1561-1571 and brings a display of farms and castle domains and as such constitutes an important iconographic source that provides an insight into the structure of the buildings , the streets and the relationship between urban and non-urban areas .
In 1566 the religious war took place . The single monasteries such as the Monastery of Saint Anne in Woestijne did not escape the religious troubles and had to flee within the walls of the city of Bruges . In 1577 include the demolition of the St. Bavo church and the Magdalena Hospital by order of the city government followed. In 1580, the monastery of St. Anne - in - Woestijne and St. Theobald Chapel demolished following the religious troubles . The parish church of St Bavo did not escape the religious troubles and was completely demolished in 1612 . In 1610 the residents were given permission to build a new church, but this admission was not used . The parish was abolished in 1647 and added to Sint-Salvator again . Farms also suffered from the religious turmoil . The farm " The Frisian Serbian barn " ( Legeweg ) with impressive entrance probably dates from the 17th century and has come after a period of religious wars

un bel ritratto delle Fiandre e dei suoi colori autunnali. Una composizione assai equilibrata nella quale i colori sono un piacere per gli occhi per il piacevole equilibri si toni di giallo e di verde che trovano un bel complemento nell'azzurro del cielo.
Ciao e buona settimana
Vasa (17021) 2013-11-11 1:11
Your note is a story and your motif is charming corner. With this large format is an event of the morning. Thank you John. Have the best continuation.
timecapturer (49288) 2013-11-11 3:03
a shot full of the atmosphere and beauty of the season, with warm tones and the light that enhances the effect at this time of the year. Executed in your own inimitable style and presented perfectly. An idyllic and enticing scene.
Have a great week - B.
siudzi (34141) 2013-11-11 3:22
This is a lovely autumnal capture of this nice place. The soft light created a charming scene with many beautiful tones around. Well observed and taken. TFS!
jacquest (18919) 2013-11-11 3:51
This is an interesting house captured in a beautiful autumn setting. I like the mix of tones with the still green plants all around. The distance on the ally with the fallen leaves add deepness. The soft ligh is pleasant to the eye and the clarity is very good.
COSTANTINO (61415) 2013-11-11 4:02
shot with natural warm colors
I love autumn and the whole
I like this creative perspective
amazing delicate and sweet
another beautiful photo
from your gallery
have a nice and pleasant evening
bona (13636) 2013-11-11 4:05
pretty photo of this horse stable. The colors are great and the many leaves on the floor are a beautiful detail.
pierrefonds (61904) 2013-11-11 4:29
The length of the alley is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the detals and colors of the stable. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
Sergiom (70616) 2013-11-11 5:09
Peut-être des étables, mais elles feraient une très belle maison. Quel bel endroit surtout sous cette superbe lumière et les arbres aux couleurs de l'automne.J'aime le point de vue très bas qui apporte de la profondeur.
tyro (22986) 2013-11-11 5:12
What a glorious day for a ride on your electric bike!
The light here is beautiful and I love the dappled light on the ground caused by the shadows of the overhanging trees. The autumnal colours are delightful and you have composed this picture very pleasingly. Perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.
ChrisJ (107149) 2013-11-11 5:46
I like the shadow play and dappled light in the fg and the wide path narrowing towards the back gives superb lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. I like how it forks at the roundabout. Good sharpness, density and saturation with superb Fall colours. Tfs!
PaulVDV (25589) 2013-11-11 5:46
Het koetshuis lijkt nu wel een dure villa geworden.
De foto heeft een heel goede compositie en naast het koetshuis worden we verder geleid over het pad onder de kleurrijke herfsttakken.
De voorgrond toont een mooi spel van licht en schaduw op de afgevallen herfstbladeren.
Vele groeten, Paul
Corry (4508) 2013-11-11 6:28
Une très belle photo automnale de cet endroit. J'aime beaucoup les couleurs et la lumière. Belle composition. Félicitations et bonne journée.
photoray (13725) 2013-11-11 7:36
Appealing position, the wide leaf covered path leading into the classical brick coach house, with autumn colors.
Looks like a fine place to bike to, or stroll,
saxo042 (37730) 2013-11-11 7:50
The fallen leaves provide a nice pattern on the ground here. The autumnal colours dominate the picture. A very pleasant and attractive view!
Kielia (24077) 2013-11-11 7:55
you are presenting a very well composed image of this interesting architecture. The gentle colors and the warm Autumn light create a wonderful mood. I also enjoyed reading the excellent notes!
ourania (38952) 2013-11-11 8:55
a very lovely and pleasant photo for us to get to know this place. I like very much the balanced structure and the effective dynamism of your composition. Great sense of space as well as excellent clarity make the view very inviting. I like very much how you distilled the best light quality and captured wonderful autumnal colours and atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
cornejo (37697) 2013-11-11 10:09
Hi John, great photograph of this beautiful and interesting place with color and peace of autumn, 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.
All the best from southern Spain.
holmertz (47100) 2013-11-11 10:34
That is a nice building we see partly hidden behind the trees.The colour of ihe bricks goes well with the autumn leaves of the trees and those lying on the ground. The fairly large empty space in the foregrund is made more lively by the small sunny areas and the yellow leaves, which have given the ground a nicer tone. You have handled the mild autumn light very well, creating a pleasant atmosphere.
resat1972 (7492) 2013-11-11 11:16
an amazing photo
Fall is a great work at home and foreground
Hansaphotos (7615) 2013-11-11 12:11
Quiet environment indeed. I like how the shadows plays with the sun in the foreground. Fine autumnal colours and nice lighting. The fallen leaves on the ground gives the picture the extra touch. Fine work! Thanks.
Have a nice week.
Best regards, Erling
hidibyendu (875) 2013-11-11 14:19
Very quite calm autumn atmosphere captured here. Excellent play of light and shadows. The perspective and the POV is superb. Would like to stay in that house. WAR!! we hope to be stopped tomorrow but probably it will stop and it will increase.
Alco (7195) 2013-11-11 18:18
Very nice picture of that horse stable.I like your choice of a wide angle to present the entire house and its surroundings.Nice foreground with all these leaves on the lane.Superb fall colors.Very well done.
Have a nice day.
Royaldevon (34735) 2013-11-12 1:32
My first impression was the quality of the lovely autumn light. The shadows are there but are paler, gentler than in summer.
Your shot is beautifully composed; great lead lines to the strongly positioned, focal house and good balance created by the trees.
Have a great day,
dkmurphys (54485) 2013-11-12 1:47
Simple and very attractive autumn scene. I like the elements and the colors. Well taken.
Have a great day!
Noel_Byrne (28162) 2013-11-12 4:19
This image does have a fine sense of calm, and beautiful autumn colors making me feel very relaxed as I look at it. It seems to be a very expansive view, is this taken with a wide angle lens? Love the low viewpoint too, suits the subject so well.
Thanks as always
ikeharel (65205) 2013-11-12 5:01
A very elegant edifice for being just a stable, happy horses live there, probably.
Fine outdoor's around, lavish veg.s' and well cared yard.
Pic. well made from the chosen POV.
Kugart (1778) 2013-11-12 5:20
This is a really beautiful shot of this wonderful house in St. Andrews. I like the way you have constructed this by showing the road at a wide angle leading into the picture. The lighting on the house along with the beautiful autumn colours is delightful.
Fis2 (92169) 2013-11-12 6:43
A lovely place.
Excellent frame and colors.
I like it.
mvdisco (17784) 2013-11-12 8:14
Hi John, Bonjour,
A nice autumn scene and architecture of this beautiful house,

A sharp and clear composition..

Graal (101108) 2013-11-12 8:39
interesting and nice presentation the horse stable. I like the composition and autumnal palette of colors. Photo is very well done.
Have a nice evening.
macjake (63172) 2013-11-12 13:31
you do very well with these wide angle scenes in your home country of Belgium, there's not even one I don't like!
the entire scene just seems to be so well balanced, every portion of the frame has something beautiful to offer.
lovely colors, exposure, and subject/composition.
mcmtanyel (18087) 2013-11-12 20:43
A very pretty autumn landscape, with the leaf-carpeted driveway leading to the main subject of the picture. A good combination of colors, great DOF.
kato (11630) 2013-11-12 21:57
You're capturing well thisplace by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see this suburbs with peaceful atmosphere in autumn. I ca see tasteful fallen leaves on road, trees dyed to atutumnal tints and elegant house in here. Yje whole is harmonized well by a good arrangement and beautiful color combination. And, the shadow projecred to the road draws out an additional good effect in this image.
fabbs99 (17129) 2013-11-12 22:23
Nice shot of the coach house.Excellent light and colors.Good sharpness.Very well done,TFS.
abmdsudi (48769) 2013-11-12 22:49
Beautiful shot of the stable and the architectural style in such a tranquil setting. Lovely composition and framework as well, of a delightful spot you have captured the whole image just exudes peace and quietness with some pretty autumnal colours and tones too. Very well done, TFS
subhendu_bagchi (25991) 2013-11-13 1:27
another nice view, another nice photograph. You composed your shot superbly. Those houses are looking nice in such colourful atmosphere. Like the depth you got with f/20. Superb shot. Tfs.
josepmarin (58087) 2013-11-13 3:02
what a delightful image you offer us here! the architecture of this horse-stable is very elegant and has a few beautiful lines, but the most important for my taste in your composition is the fantastic mood of the autumn, with its light and its wonderful colours.
It's an elegant and nice work, my friend.
rbassin (21032) 2013-11-13 10:47
une écurie située dans un magnifique décor.
C'est bien vu, le rendu des couleurs et de la lumière est superbe.
UlfE (14641) 2013-11-13 11:00
A wonderful autumn scene. You have captured the late autumn lighting perfectly and your light management is perfect. TFS and have a nice evening!
mirosu (15870) 2013-11-13 18:04
I like very much how elegantly you have balanced and composed this photo, it looks as you have employed the elements that define the scenery, the fall colours, nice light and the perspectives in an excellent way. Well done.
mesutilgim (90698) 2013-11-14 4:23
Hello dear John,
Another "topclass" entry in your gallery ! Perfect autumnal capture with very good layout (as allways) and perfect light management.

Warm regrads malgo

Well framed with this composition well balanced. The tree and the Fg with leaves good an interesting view with the house in a focal point.

elenimavrandoni (0) 2013-11-15 20:18
John, a fantastic note and a marvelous composition! a very complete and beautiful work as usual!!
all the best
Buin (42366) 2013-11-16 1:27
All in this photo transmits calm and peace - and a big contrast to the history, to the wars which you described in your note.
You have had a wonderful light that day and this "glowing" tree in its autumn foliage is a real reat. A place obviously to feel good, to enjoy ...
It's great that you are able to have such excursions again!
All the best and a nice weekend end from Siegen!
adramad (42015) 2013-11-20 7:28
A beautiful note, to show the long history of this place.
The composition is lovely especially the beauty of these trees with autumn colors so varied and so beautiful that sky, but old buildings, you see them refurbished and are a perfect complement.
Very well balanced lighting and very good sharpness.
Well done. I love it.
Enjoy a nice day.
TRB (13974) 2013-11-20 10:25
Bakış açısı, netliği, renkleri ve görüntüsü ile çok güzel, tebrikler
Periko (4034) 2013-11-20 21:58
Beautiful autumnal scenery. I like the style of the house or stable.
Seeing the result of your work I understand that using tripod is better.
silah (2786) 2013-11-21 2:27
Wisely composed shot with soft and warm fall colours, soft light as well. TFS. GREETINGS, Salih
jcpix (13846) 2013-11-21 18:43
Hope you've been well over the last few weeks. it feels good to be back around TE, thanks again for the kind wishes. :)
This picture is a fantastic representation of the season. The colorful leaves slowly departing the trees and covering the ground with it's own colorful display along with a nice, clear sky and a feeling of a slight chill in the air.
A beautiful, wide entry easily leads us into the main point of focus with clarity and even a simple elegance. Crisp and sharp as always, looks like a nice place to spend some down time.
Take good care. Friendly wishes,
jmdias (59992) 2013-11-26 15:45
I liked the texture of the ground in foreground with the golden leaves. nice details of architecture and autumn mood. TFS.
eldancer1 (33901) 2013-12-06 7:41
Simple architecture but looks very sturdy and functional. Nicely captured with good lighting and sharp details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
