The Veerse meer is a lagoon in the province of Zeeland. It was separated from the North sea in 1961 by the Delta works dam system. It is 22 km long, and 1,500 m wide in places. Lying between the old islands of Noord-Beveland, Zuid-Beveland and Walcheren, it is linked to the river Scheldt by the Zandkreekdam lock, which allows this lagoon to have brackish water, slightly less salty than sea water. There are 13 small uninhabited islands in the lake. Source : wiki

a landscape very similar to many areas in Northern Germany. On the water there are white objects. I guess that fishing nets are attached to these floating things.
A fine clear picture, which invites you to walk along the shore line. It pleases me very well because of the light, the color and the width, you have captured in it beautifully.
Best regards from Sweden

This gives us some idea why the country is called the Netherlands. Without the dam system there would be very little to protect the land from storms. I am old enough to vaguely remember the floodings in 1953. There is a very nice curve where the blue meets the yellow/green.

100% minimalism. Your photo has three parts, very well composed with the curve of the coast, bravo
aleXundar (595) 2013-10-22 9:15
Yes, the curve is the main attraction of this image. And of course the colors. The blue of the sea and that of the sky are so different but so charming.
A very pleasant atmosphere.

Excellent tranquil land- waterscape in perfect light and colors. I like the arrangement with the bending shore-line.
Thanks for your comments. You are right, Ernakulam is on the continent, it is the commercial part of these tween cities. Yes, I took the ferry several times.

nicely composed shot of the lagoon using the curve of the shoreline to give impact to the picture. Boy is this land flat! As can be seen by your perfectly placed horizon in your composition . Good lighting, sharpness and contrast between the blue of the water and straw coloured land.

A fine combination of man and nature here, as the best of both worlds come to a happy conclusion on needs. I like the sound of the little islands here too, I imagine they would be good places to explore, if you were able to get them of course!
All the best

The 'c' shaped dividing line between the expanse of water and the yellow red green grass at left makes for a strong simple composition. Good sharpness and excellent density levels color and saturation. A good informative note to accompany the image too. Tfs!

Marvelous view curve Miguel, whit a effect of space and superb vastness respecting the famous third rule
Also good mix of colors and vegetation and water
Interesting note, since I was a child I am interested in the way the work with water is made in the Netherlands
Greetings, well done

The artificail dyke in a fine curve and good DOF along.
Summer colors and bright daylight, not usual sight in Holland.
Fine photo, I think once red theat the lagoon is lower than sea-level.

Amplisima panoramica de esta larga linea de costa baja y con poca vegetacion, bonito contraste entre el azul del mar y esa hierba, alternando el verdor con otras zonas ya secas.
Agradable este color suave.
Genial como la buena iluminacion y nitidez, nos permite recrearnos en la imagen.
Buen trabajo. Me encanta.
Que tengas un buen dia.
Todo lo mejor.

A simple and beautiful composition! Even with few elements, you were able to get it with very good depth! Very good colors too! Beautiful job!

I like the curvature of the shore (dam?) slowly taking the viewer's eyes to the opposite shore. Very nicely rendered.
