Again a picture taken middle of the winter between Aardenburg and Sint Kruis in Zeeland on 10km of my home.
These are one of the most beautiful places for walkers and bikers, the calm, the waterbirds and and alone farmers are active in this countryside area.
It's was a cold day but with a lot sun, a very well day for a simple but pleasant picture to make.
The Eekloose Watergang is a semi-natural watercourse located on Dutch territory located between Smedekensbrugge (south of Aardenburg ) and St. Laureins and a length of approximately 7 km.
The Eekloose Watergang was dug around 1300 as Turfvaart to spot extracted peat disposal.
In this watercourse are numerous remains from creek, as the Old Rush Creek and the Creek valley , which come together in the Groote Gat , and the Cross Creek and the Creek Block . These creeks formed by the inundations of 1583 , causing the watercourse Eekloose a semi-natural character.
Today is the Eekloose Watergang a natural area of 26 ha, which is owned by Forestry Commission . In 2009 there was a walkway along the Eekloose Watergang constructed.

Een mooie herinnering aan één van de weinige zonnige dagen in februari. Een mooi en idyllisch hoekje aan het water. Op de voorgrond is dit water heel kalm en weerspiegelt prachtig de door de zon verlichte bomen en struiken. Wat verderop blijkt het dan sneller te stromen en onderbreekt het met een smalle lijn de weerspiegelde boomstammen.
Prachtige warme tinten onder een blauwe vrieslucht.
Vele groeten, Paul

queste giornate d'inverno sono le più belle per l'utilizzo della fotografia e, come sempre, sei riuscito a creare un'immagine limpida, composta magnificamente, che ci fa apprezzare questo luogo nel modo in cui l'hai descritto nella nota.

Une bonne image d'un superbe paysage calme et tranquille.
Bravo et bonne journée.

Bonjour, cher ami John,
Joli miroir hivernal où se mirent avec délices la nature sur l'eau calme.
Le printemps bien que tardif doit commencer à égayer la nature de cette jolie composition.
manrezaei (1837) 2013-04-01 1:10
I like your wonderful shots. Very well managed the reflections and warm natural colors of trees. Very well done,
Romano46 (18466) 2013-04-01 1:11
le immagini che proponi sono sempre molto ben composte ed equilibrate nei loro componenti, oltre che dominate dalla presenza di colori delicati e ben dosati.
Così è anche in questa che sfrutta in maniera ottimale i riflessi della vegetazione nell'acqua ed equilibra ottimamente il tutto con il cielo.
Ciao e buona giornata
Royaldevon (30739) 2013-04-01 1:48
Good Morning John,
The stilness and the tranquility are so well captured, with muted colours and undisturbed reflections.
You have given this a strong composition, with attention to the ratio of thirds and the strongly positioned focal tree.
Have a lovely day,

belle clarté, Belle composition
ikeharel (58847) 2013-04-01 2:52
Adorable reflection over the smooth water surface, with an excelent clarity above water and on.
Mixed well brown vegetation with blue sky aloft. Also the clarity is well rendered.
cornejo (32722) 2013-04-01 3:38
Hello John, very good view of this beautiful and interesting place, very well captured with good pov on this excellent and interesting photography. An interesting picture with good sharpness, depth, light and color. Very good job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good afternoon and happy week.
Best regards from southern Spain.
marabu61 (8679) 2013-04-01 3:41
And again a very pleasing and tranquil scene, one has just to love those rusty colors in the reeds. The cold air is palpatable by the pale blue sky and clear light. Top notch shot.
snunney (85543) 2013-04-01 4:03
A most attractive landscape composition. The lighting and reflections are very appealing indeed, as is the palette of harmonious colours. Superb clarity as always.
jacquest (18809) 2013-04-01 4:17
Indeed a very peaceful scene under a very good light. I like the reflections in the water replicating to perfection the landscape in an image of high quality.
pierrefonds (57915) 2013-04-01 4:40
The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The wideness of the creek is giving depth to the scene. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the creek. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.
Sergiom (61906) 2013-04-01 5:30
On reconnait bien toutes tes qualités de photographe dans cette belle image. Le point de vue est excellent et apporte beaucoup de profondeur et la lumière est magnifique.

a perfect composition full of balance and harmony. Glorious winter light and warm tones with a really peaceful atmosphere. Stark winter beauty.

bona (13035) 2013-04-01 6:53
as always you showing breathtaking images. Beatiful place with this naked tree reflected on the calm river. It is a very common scene that you explore very well in your photos.
Noel_Byrne (25222) 2013-04-01 7:08
A very beautiful natural scene, very calming and a very beautiful reflection. The light is very soft and pleasing too.
Thanks fr sharing
JFS (32459) 2013-04-01 8:01
Beautiful and delicate shot John, minimaliste and fascinating, i like the reflections as well. Good work!
holmertz (42235) 2013-04-01 8:21
This is a surprisingly beautiful picture of "dead" nature. I would not have expected a picture dominated by so much brown to be so appealing, but the contrast with the light blue sky is very attractive and there is also a very beautiful clarity of the light. The composition is also very well done, with one tree dominating the foreground and the right half of the view, balanced by the line of trees further back on the left side.
ourania (32763) 2013-04-01 10:04
a very elegant and vibrant picture, the effect of the naked brances, the dry grass and their reflections is mesmerising; their warm colours make a fantastic contrast with the even pale tone of the smooth, clear sky. A very lovely and interesting artistic presentation of a natural scenery. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely month,
yquem46 (38746) 2013-04-01 13:20

ChrisJ (100052) 2013-04-03 11:07
Nice symmerical reflections with excellent sharpness and superb warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and yellow red dried vegetation. Good repetition of the bg trees and splendid graphism & repetition of their forms. Tfs!

nice reflections in water here. Good POV and composition. I like the peaceful mood in this image. Colours like during the autumn season. Photo is very well done.
Have a nice day.
Kielia (23749) 2013-04-04 5:08
very well done, the big tree really attracts the eyes and the composition is well chosen. The colors are so characteristic for the cold spring in our hemisphere. I also like the steel blue sky above the creek.
Janusz1974 (2824) 2013-04-04 9:25
Lovely shot with beautiful colours and wonderful reflections.
Wonderful scene of the nature.
I like it very much.

A beautiful composition and presentation,
Nice point of view and reflection on water,
great tone of colors and light,
very pretty the calm water and reflection,
good saturation too,
best regard.. Michel
kato (11630) 2013-04-04 12:56
You're capturing well this creek by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the winding creek and the tasteful winter trees/bushes of the both bank. The whole is unified by a gentle tone and calm atmosphere of counrtside. And, the reflection projected to the creek draws out a good effect in this image.
chrislo (4155) 2013-04-04 14:22
Wat een mooi schilderachtig beeld met dit zonnige winterweer ! Het licht is werkelijk schitterend en de heldere winterkleuren maken er een mooie foto. De weerspiegeling maakt deze foto natuurlijk zeer aantrekkelijk en brengt een evenwicht in de blauwe tinten. Zoals in veel van je foto’s heerst er hier een zeer vredige en rustige sfeer. Deze foto behoort tot je mooiste, John. Maar nu wordt het toch tijd dat het een beetje begint te verwarmen...
siolaw (38286) 2013-04-05 0:58
A fine compo, according to the rule of thirds, with pleasant colours/contrast and a particularly serene atmosphere.
Buin (42330) 2013-04-05 10:18
There's a lot of natural beauty in this photo and I like especially this contrast between the exclusively brownish and bluish colours in the scenery. All transmits an incredible calm. A place to feel good, to recharge the batteries
Greetings from still cold Westphalia - each night with frost! Have a nice and hopefully sunny weekend!
serp2000 (40612) 2013-04-06 1:52
Simple but very nice spring composition, we have got a lot of the snowon the winter season. And I think, we will see similar scenes very soon.
Have a good weekend!

mirosu (14954) 2013-04-08 1:26
Excellent tranquil land-waterscape in perfect light and colors. The superb reflections fascinate me too, they actually sets the scene. Brilliant photo.
Waylim (25362) 2013-04-10 13:56

josepmarin (57831) 2013-04-25 3:02
a peaceful landscape, where the naked trees and the winter golden tones play a splendid aesthetic role and create a nice reflections on the water.
You managed perfectly the exposure, obtaining a good light and a few soft colors.
I like this composition.
Best regards, my friend,
rigoletto (34269) 2013-04-26 3:42
I am a fan of your landscapes, as i love Flemish and Dutch paintings, i cannot help loving the atmosphere in your photos from Belgium and Netherlands. Such a soft light, muted colors and calm feeling in there...
Robert1969 (7120) 2013-05-08 3:24
Een mooie en idyllisch foto met mooie en warme
kleuren. Alles is heel mooi verdeeld en belicht
en de spiegeling in het water is een mooie extra.
p.s. Misschien legde ik het verkeerd uit: een
uv filter is altijd aan te raden, omdat het de
lens beschermt, maar ik raad het af in
combinatie met een polarisatiefilter te doen
jmdias (56579) 2013-05-09 7:02
beautiful reflections and a graphic effect got with these nude trees. I liked the contrast between the colors too. nice job.
clic (15308) 2013-05-11 9:14
I hear Vivaldi's winter concerto, the last of The Four Seasons, seated in front of this sublime tableau!
You posted a soothing view!!

RhodieIke (11742) 2013-07-11 5:50
You have captured this scene beautifully, fantastic light, colours and above all the wonderful mood, Well done. Trust you and your family are well.
NorthernLight (2313) 2013-10-06 1:44
here you show us a picture of a river landscape. A silent picture, I think. But also a very beautiful image with fine reflections and warm colors. It's nothing spectacular, but it spreads a beautiful, relaxing atmosphere that invites the viewer to linger.
A lovely picture full of atmosphere, very well captured!
Have a nice Sunday
subhendu_bagchi (25869) 2013-12-11 23:59
