A nice Monday, a lot of sun small clouds to the sky and a light North wind, this was an ideal day for a bike trip to Breskens a small city in the Netherlands Zeeland on 35 km of my home.
Breskens a nice village with a lot of pleasant places, also for eat a good lunch with fish.
I have these picture taken of the marina with very nice boats.
Look can for me, but do not buy!
I hope you enjoy of these picture.
Breskens is the maritime seaside resort! That is not so difficult with its own fishing and modern marina with 850 berths. To the arrival and departure of the huge ocean-going vessels on the Western ensures that a day at the beach is never boring here. Wherever you cross the dune, you always quickly reached the wide sandy beach where a large place for sunbathing awaits you. Additionally, you can enjoy the many yachts that set sail to or from the marina. From the beach, east of the ferry dock, so you can walk into the city centre where you will find numerous cafes and restaurants.
Breskens is plenty to see and do! Shrimp fishing with horses to an old mine on my clock. Imagine yourself as Schumacher on the kart track or even visit a real sheep farm. But do not miss the Fishing Museum and the beautiful carvings in the RK St. Barbara Church. And what about spotting seals sunning?

hello John, Quite unusual photo in your gallery. Splendid panorama of the marina, and it looks so flat, only one mast is higher. Beautiful sky and its reflection, very pleasant atmosphere. Have you spot seals?

Bonjour, cher ami John,
Cette marina rassemblant des bateaux de toutes sortes est très agréable à contempler.
Cela donne des envies de promenade et de pêche.
Comme à l'accoutumée, la présentation est très belle.

Fine calm atmosphere in this small port. I like the colors of this wonderful sunny day.
Have a nice week.
Apurba20 (984) 2014-06-30 2:02
This looks like a typical fishing village scene, with the boats of all colors and varied shapes dotting the scape. The horizon looks so infinite miles away and the sky starts and continues in such splendor.
Have a great week.
ourania (33443) 2014-06-30 2:57
a very fine view of the marina in the sunshine, very delightful atmosphere. I like very much your composition, it's dynamic and well balanced, there's great depth and the frame is divided effectively between the marina and the sky. There are superb details and great textures all over. The reflections are very attractive as well. You managed light and contrast wonderfully, the whites are so pure and vivid against the deep blue tones. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely week,
carlo62 (35196) 2014-06-30 3:36
credo che dovrò fare un altro viaggio in Belgio, ho ancora molte cose da vedere, compresa questa parte sul confine che presenta molte bellezze, come ho potuto vedere dalle tue foto.
Bella questa panoramica, c'è una luce bellissima, le barche colorano la scena e il cielo è splendido, per questo mi piace che tu abbia dato molto spazio alla parte alta della foto.
williewhistler (14757) 2014-06-30 3:37
a delightful view of the marina with extra emphasis given to an attractive summer sky in a strong and well balanced composition.
A picture postcard scene with delightful colours and crisp,clear details.
Best regards Les.
snunney (86342) 2014-06-30 4:27
A busy marina with a lot of very expensive boats. I like the composition, with the gap between the two sets of moorings nicely placed off centre. The sky is delightful and the light very appealing. Excellent colours and clarity. A fish lunch by the harbour sounds very pleasant.
timecapturer (49288) 2014-06-30 4:49
good to see you are having some of the lovely weather we are getting here at the moment. A clear and wonderfully enticing marina shot. Immaculate detail and a glorious summer sky make this so captivating.
Have a good week - B.

Bravo et amitié

Dear John Sir,
What a beautiful pic!!!
Very good. I like the colours of the picture which are very well shown. Sky colour is very nice. Good composition.
Sergiom (62832) 2014-06-30 7:50
Tu as choisi une bien belle journée pour visiter cette marina. J'aime beaucoup quand le ciel est plein de beaux nuages tout blancs.Le cadrage est excellent et aéré.
mjw364 (7512) 2014-06-30 8:26
What a colourful and fantastic scene with a beautiful sky. The horizon is placed well on the lower third and the boats provide the foreground to contrast with the sky. As always an excellently composed image.
Silvio1953 (125507) 2014-06-30 11:01
Ciao John, lovely composition with a lot of boats, fantastic sky, excellent clarity, splendid light and colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
COSTANTINO (57208) 2014-06-30 11:35
Hello my dear friend
what a beautiful amazing capture of this
small harbour I love the wonderful blue sky
and the boats the one next to the other
with symmetry and order
they look wonderful like small toys
splendi panorama of the marina
shot wih great lightness and sharpness
I am really suprised seeing a photo
of this kind because you have your
personal style with your stamp
holmertz (42723) 2014-06-30 12:09
This looks very much like summer, not at all like what we have now in Scandinavia. Beautiful boats, nicely laid out, and very pretty clouds. Excellent colours and fine light.
pierrefonds (58259) 2014-06-30 12:13
The wideness of the area is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the boats. The good luminosity is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice day.
mesutilgim (86574) 2014-06-30 13:18
Hello dear John,
Sailing this days from one marina to the other one, this capture warmed my hearth !
Wonderfull layout and nice bright and fresh colors.
TFS and best regards
jcpix (13716) 2014-06-30 19:44
I would certainly hope you wouldn't buy a boat, where would you be able to ride your bike?? :) Your two wheeled journeys have produced many wonderful opportunities such as this, so keep on pedaling! Not an uncommon scene, but one which has been composed and captured to excite the senses. The calm waters suggest and air of calm and relaxation, and who wouldn't want to take it easy and just watch these clouds roll on by? Ahhh, the simple life. :) Have a great day. All the best.
Alco (7012) 2014-06-30 20:18
A beautiful landscape with all these boats in the marina completed by that nice blue sky partly covered with nice white clouds. Superb colors. TFS.
Have a nice day.
omid266 (5844) 2014-06-30 21:44
dear my friend,
What a wonderful place hunted with your skill with camera, a city near your home in another country is interesting,
very Peaceful landscape, excellent clariy, splendid light,

tyro (20884) 2014-07-01 1:56
What a wonderful place to visit on your bike trip!
A very fine composition which is very balanced and very pleasing to the eye. Lovely fresh light, gorgeous colours - and all beneath a wonderful sky! Stunning details and sharpness too.
An interesting note about Breskens.
Graal (98630) 2014-07-01 2:36
nice blue image. Interesting view and marina theme. I like the small clouds over the port. Superb quality of photo.
Have a nice day.
Kielia (23847) 2014-07-01 2:38
these characteristic colors of the summer in our region are really beautiful! This is actually the seaside at its best. You are presenting a wonderful impression of the boats taken from a very well working POV. My compliments, also for the nice notes!

A very peaceful and pleasant summer scene with all these boats in different colours. Beautiful!
mcmtanyel (14543) 2014-07-01 21:28
This is a very appealing marina view. The reds and whites on top of the blue ocean look lovely and that donut shaped cloud looks interesting. Very well done, as usual.
dip (23640) 2014-07-02 2:34

The design of the cloud, ship a very good frame
light and color values very successful
abmdsudi (44728) 2014-07-02 10:36
A vibrant shot emphasising on depth and perspective using the eye grabbing boats to direct naturally to the marina and beyond. Lovely rich colours and contrast in clear view so well exposed with the stunning blue water and sky to complete the compo. The big clouds are icing on the cake.Great catch, Congrats
Fis2 (87301) 2014-07-02 14:21
Wonderful summers climate.
Good composition and colors.
Curious sky add savor of photo.
pili51 (1477) 2014-07-02 16:20
I love the calm mood of this shot.... A very nice composition withn the port as subject.
A nice perspective into the port with the boats on either side leading us into the expanse of water. Nice subtles colours. Good sharpness.
Very well done, thanks for sharing.
Cheers, and best wishes from BCN
macjake (57780) 2014-07-02 17:26
so you're in Holland, thats great. It's so close to Belgium it must be easy to travel there :)
Personally, i love marina's and boat scenes, and when you add in sweet puffy clouds it makes it a million times better.
lovely color contrast, sweet photo John
jmdias (56975) 2014-07-03 1:23
I liked these colors and the curious poles in the middle of the marina. beautiful boats.
ChrisJ (100662) 2014-07-03 5:14
I see scenes like this all over Turkey and Greece and still cannot resist photographing them. Unusually sunny weather for Holland! It was grey and overcast when I was there. Love the repetition and reflections here! Tfs!
Royaldevon (31193) 2014-07-03 5:44
Ha! Ha! John, only a photographer could ask for pretty, small clouds to be in the sky! I know exactly what you mean, a sky has more character with the presence of clouds.
A fine viewpoint which gives a pleasing division of the boats, with well placed, tall, wooden posts, to act as a gateway, to the scene beyond.
The rippling water surface has prevented clear reflections but it does inform of the weather conditions and gives suggestions of reflections ... imagination can do the rest!
Have a great day,
John_F_Kennedy (43173) 2014-07-03 6:36
A fine composition with good light and colours. Looks a very peaceful harbour.
eldancer1 (29403) 2014-07-03 6:46
I wish I could afford boats like these. When I live in San Diego I was thinking of buying a boat and live in it, those are young man's dream. Nice capture of this marina and good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
photoray (12781) 2014-07-03 15:55
Fine view of Breskens marina, with a variety of boats moored under blue sky with fluffy clouds.
This view could be in California in one of our many marinas.
Thanks for sharing,
rychem (25096) 2014-07-03 20:45
Very nice photo, great view of the marina, excellent light and clarity
mirosu (15052) 2014-07-04 1:51
Excellent view to small boats landing place in very good light and superb clarity. I like the tight crop arrangement and also the beautiful cloudy sky above.
The reflections on quiet water are also very nice.
Very well done.
ikeharel (59461) 2014-07-04 8:21
Good evening John,
Marina and boats always an intriguing subject, as the sea and outdoor's light offer much for any photographer.
Excelent sharp details, each element is well distinct when looking at.
lovely sight, well collected.

Une vue très bien aérée sur cette marina
J'apprécie le cadrage de l'horizon au tiers de la hauteur
Très belle luminosité ambiante
Bonne fin de dimanche
ACL1978 (7511) 2014-07-07 17:43
Lovely seaside marina shot here, John - a pastel blue sky and apparently perfect weather for boating! Or, at least, for looking at boats.... thanks!
PaulVDV (23037) 2014-07-07 22:26
De laatste tijd heb ik het heel druk gehad en dus weinig tijd voor TE waardoor ik deze foto gemist heb.
Ondanks de drukke bezetting van de haven, geeft deze foto een gevoel van weidsheid en ruimte.
Vermoedelijk door de zichtbare verafgelegen horizon en door de lucht die een ruime plaats op de foto inneemt.
Een goede compositie en prachtige zomerse kleuren.
Vele groeten, Paul
berek (40453) 2014-07-12 7:27
clouds of the sky color is great. a balanced composition. congratulations.
adramad (39100) 2014-07-12 10:22
A serene beauty transmitting this excellent composition, the beautiful navy blue precious, both the sea and the sky, creating a nice contrast with white clouds and vessels dominant.
Ideal colorful natural.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Good job. I like it
