Thank for your visit.
This is my second picture from Breskens, we see some boats in the marina and sail.
Marina was born at the end of the forties. After the 2nd World War had P.S.D. for their ferry service in Breskens a dock in the form of a large pontoon, which was connected by a bridge to the shore, about where now the bunker boats. Behind liked the local yachts one place. There were only a dozen among others Jaap Maas, yacht builder, Verschoor the Harbour Master, Notary vd Corner and a few fishing boats.
After a few years, a new berth obtained at the beginning of the jetty of the professional fishermen. Meanwhile, the number of yachts was increased to six or seven. In 1954, we had access to the entire western side of the jetty. With the help of donations from local restaurants, complemented by 1,500 guilders from the Brussels Royal Yachting Club we bought washed spruce, life rafts, etc. and with the help of all local sailors was our first port of a fact.
With great celebration and a significant number of visiting yachts, mostly Belgians, our port was opened, there was room for about 100 boats.
The latest development is the expansion in 1994, the direction of Port Scaldis so the capacity is increased to 580 moorings and approximately 80 charter boats. Almost since the beginning of the expansion, the port is fully occupied, so that we are working on a new expansion. Since some time

Beautiful view, well composed with blue water in the Fg and with sailboats as focal points. Pleasant light well captured, tfs.
carlo62 (31444) 2014-08-31 23:37
bellissima luce, ne hai approfittato per fare una splendida foto.
Mi piace l'importanza che hai dato al cielo e alle sue nuvole, quasi a dimostrare quanto siamo piccoli noi terrestri.

Belle ambiance estivale dans cette entrée de port . Les tonalités et le ciel sont de toute beauté .
Gerrit (47518) 2014-09-01 2:02
Prachtig beeld van de binnenkomst van de schepen in de ruime haven. Mooie kleueren en licht onder een prachtige lucht.
snunney (82559) 2014-09-01 2:14
Looks a very pleasant day for a sail; that sky is rather gorgeous. The composition is nicely balanced with the jetties coming in from both sides helping to frame the yachts. I like very much the agreeable light and colours. Clarity is top class.
cornejo (30664) 2014-09-01 3:52
Hi John, very good picture of this pretty with sailboats and a beautiful sky, beautifully captured in this beautiful image with good sharpness, depth, beautiful light, color and quality. Very good and nice job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Best wishes from southern Spain.
jacquest (18573) 2014-09-01 3:57
I like the view you have chosen with the two jetties leaving an open space that gives deepness. The reflections of the boats on the water adds to the image. A wondeful light baths the scene, giving natural colors.
seres76 (780) 2014-09-01 4:01
The world's magnificent beauty nice comments you can share with us... Tfs...
pierrefonds (56472) 2014-09-01 4:18
The length of the canal is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the boats. The quality of the light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
Graal (96799) 2014-09-01 5:03
nice blue image. Pleasant climate and look on the sea. Nice composition with sailboats in center. Photo is very well done.
Have a nice day.
Sergiom (58734) 2014-09-01 5:56
Il y a un grand calme qui se dégage de cette composition. Comme si le vent s'était éteint pour laisser glisser les voiliers et étirer le temps sur l'eau. Comme toujours une photo de très grande qualité.
alvaraalto (6175) 2014-09-01 6:14
Dit is wat we willen. Eeen beetje wind om te zeilen en een paar wolkjes om te ervaren hoe mooi de blauwe lucht is.
Heerlijke foto uit het Zeeuwse land.
tyro (20042) 2014-09-01 7:27
Again, you have written a very interesting note about this place and also given us a delightful photograph to accompany it.
This is a beautiful and restful scene, made so by the lovely wide expanse of blue sea and the even wider expanse of blue sky with light fluffy clouds. And the boats add interest in the mid-ground as well as adding to a fine composition.
Glorious light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.
asajernigan (21132) 2014-09-01 8:00
This is a nice shot of the sailboats with fine color and detail. The angle of the boats create a sense of direction for the shot. The lighting is good and the photo has fine sharpness.
sabermonajati (9325) 2014-09-01 9:43
pleasant pay sage from boats and clouds you captured.
ourania (30187) 2014-09-01 10:24
a beautiful summer scene that is interesting and relaxing at the same time. The sense of depth is amazing, clarity excellent and you gave us a great description of the scenery with only a few details. You achieved remarkable definition on the white tones, the view of the boats and the clouds against a delicious blue backdrop is really enjoyable. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
swapankumarroy (2837) 2014-09-01 10:42
An excellent composition, the blue water divided into two parts of the land and the white boats were sailing, kept them in centre position of the frame. Very soothing color and well POV.
with deep regards and thanks,
macjake (55562) 2014-09-01 10:56
this one surprised me for sure.
it doesn't quite look like the usual JHM photo :)
but that can be a good thing as well, just to change it up a bit.
its for sure a pretty scene, lots of open spaces, lots of air and clouds to lighten the view.
love the blue and white combination colors.
excellent exposure too.
holmertz (40085) 2014-09-01 11:18
This is a beautiful scenery, even though it is completely flat. The narrow slices of land frame the white boats very nicely and the water has very beautiful tones of blue, ranging almost to yellow. The photo has a lovely atmosphere and light of early summer.
siudzi (33079) 2014-09-01 11:48
Truly charming summer postcard due to the wonderfully executed lights and blue tones! Really like this view:) very well taken and composed as always. TFS.
Noel_Byrne (23286) 2014-09-01 12:10
The sky has a very beautiful 3D effect to it, it makes the scene here come alive so very much. The light has been falling perfectly into the scene too, making the boats stand out beautifully against the vivid blue of the sea and the sky. I can almost feel the gentle breeze and smell the water as I look at this wondful shot.
Thanks as always.
Fis2 (84598) 2014-09-01 12:17
The common theme...
Wonderful summer climate!
I like POV and colors.
Tue (27696) 2014-09-01 12:48
Prachtig gezicht op het water en de verschillende zeilboten. Leuk om aan de ene kant een gele wal en aan de andere kant een groene wal te hebben. De aantrekkelijke wolkenlucht maakt het geheel af.
PiotrF (7492) 2014-09-01 13:34
nice scene from Breskens. I like your very good composition. Interesting notes.
Very pleasant picture.

Hi John dear
A good shot of the beautiful country of Holland. Dutch national flower. Excellent composition with the boat. Resolution and colors. Thanks for recording this nice picture
wolf38 (31270) 2014-09-03 0:02
Hello John. A water landscape with lots of peace and tranquility. The sailing boats, blue and some cloudy skies, - everything fits together well here. Very beautiful.
NorthernLight (2193) 2014-09-03 3:03
what could be better than an open landscape with bright blue sky with white clouds. Just sit there on a bench, watch the passing sailboats and relax. Yes, that would be nice.
A very nice picture of a fine place. Very beautiful!
Best regards from Sweden
ikeharel (56066) 2014-09-03 3:23
View towards the opening out to sea, show the artificial dykes on both sides and the bay scenery beyond.
Salis are always an intriguing subject for photography, same appliy to this wonderful photo.
danos (85785) 2014-09-03 4:05
brilliant the light of the day enhance the vivid and contrated colours of the scene.The sailing boats are the eye catchers of the image with the reflections this on the left to complete perfect the whole scene.
Didi (56307) 2014-09-03 8:19

Bonsoir, cher ami John,
Une bien belle image délicieuse et estivale. Une douceur générale s'exprime à travers cette composition.
berek (37328) 2014-09-03 21:04
There is a calm that emerges from this composition. sailboats looks beautifu.As always a picture of very high quality.
mcmtanyel (12473) 2014-09-03 21:15
There is something magical about seascapes and your photo portrays that magic beautifully. Sailboats returning home in the afternoon sun, lovely!
eldancer1 (27203) 2014-09-04 10:14
So peaceful and very relaxing scene! I wish I was on that boat. That's one thing I miss about living in the desert is sailing on the ocean, I used to do a lot of sailing when I live in San Diego. Nice capture with good lighting and sharp details. I like the clouds the reflections on the water and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hi John. An image of relaxation and leisure in an idyllic place. The sky and sea sport lovely hues of blue and the light is lovely. Such a sense of calm in this image. Regards. Klaudio.
rychem (22225) 2014-09-05 9:12
Fantastic peaceful photo, wonderful colors and amazing cloud formations in the different height creating 3D effect, bravo
gildasjan (41552) 2014-09-05 9:35
Ces bleus sont tous lumineux sous cette très bonne lumière.Quelques couleurs chaudes sur la digue à gauche de l'image viennent parfaitement équilibrer les teintes de cette image.

fraaie have plaat van Breskens goede verdeling mooi gemaakt John.
stego (24028) 2014-09-05 15:12
It is much less minimalist than what it seems in the thumbnail. As usual, you show your mastery using those great open spaces and beautiful light to make a great composition. Every little detail seems to be there to make the image perfect, but I am specially intrigued by the yellowish reflections on the left side of the surface of the water.
SWEETFREEDOM (22480) 2014-09-06 0:03
i like the view in which dominates the sky and the water in fg. nice the yachts sailing.

josepmarin (57711) 2014-09-08 5:07
this is a beautiful nautical scene!
I love the chromatic power of the blue tones of the sky and of the water, and the fantastic contrast with the whiteness of the clouds and of the sailboats.
The image is very deep and sharp, and has a great light.
Well done, my friend.
PS: thanks a lot for your kind words about my retirement.
Buin (42280) 2014-09-08 9:17
Dag John! Hoe gaat het? ;-)
Here I like the most impressive wideness of the landscape - so different from my region here. All looks summerly and relaxed. A most beautiful scenery!
abmdsudi (42664) 2014-09-08 22:48
Beautiful seascape, it's colourful sight full of intriguing elements with the yachts ensure focus is settled there. A lovely moment well shot, nicely exposed and detailed, Excellent capture, TFS
pili51 (1377) 2014-09-10 18:06
I like very much your composition, it's dynamic and well balanced, there's great depth.
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 blue tones the sky.
Congratulations and thank you!
jcpix (13564) 2014-09-11 16:02
It's simple, and simply beautiful! :) Stripping away any distractions and allowing for the little aspects to really take control of this imagery. Clouds can greatly enhance a scene, and are generally a wonderful backdrop element...but here, they command the visual. Nothing unusual or dramatic about this collection, but without them, it might have rendered much less appeal over the boats and water. A calm and peaceful vibe from this minimal setting, and one that welcomes any visitor. Come and enjoy! :) Have a great day. Take care.
adramad (37345) 2014-09-13 16:06
After a few days of vacation at the beach, I'm active again in these pages with you all.
An excellent composition, full of beauty and conveys an atmosphere of peace and relaxation, ideal vessels focus the picture, a beautiful sky, it's a great complement to the lovely job.
A perfect very natural color.
A very bright image with optimum clarity.
Good job. I love it.
Enjoy the weekend.
jmdias (54561) 2014-10-02 6:45
I liked the simplicity of elements we have here. very nice light and small details that give us a mood of peace and tranquility. TFS.
Kielia (23391) 2014-11-03 4:11
I almost missed this one (you know that I cannot resist boats).
A lovely seascape. Attractive in the simplicity of line and colour. Nicely managed light too, the clouds are the icing on the cake. My compliments!
