Photographer's Note

Another variation on the feline theme. This photo was taken in the afternoon of the Ascension Day on the outskirts of a sleepy village not far from Leiden. I was delighted by this view: a sleepy cat on a boat, water in the canal, sheep, green grass... What can be more relaxing?

I donīt know if itīs readily noticeable here, but the field just behind the sheep is actually below the water level in the canal! You can see it more clearly if you realize that the white spot in the background to the right of the house is in fact another boat docked in a different canal! The canals go on top of the dikes, and a field like this which is bordered by the dikes and is below the water level is called polder in Holland.
