These picture has been taken the same morning than the picture of the "Parma bridge"
200 meter further to direction Sluis
Sluis a nice small city against the Belgian borders, 8 km of Knokke Belgium and the nice Scheldt area at Cadzand direction Terneuzen and Antwerp.
As soon as you enter the city limits and visit the countless restaurants, shops, and historic sites you will feel as if you entered a different world; one where friendliness, old-times and new, blend into the perfect combination.
You will find fashion for all styles, picturesque boutiques, specialty stores, fresh produce supermarkets, world-class restaurants, and cozy terraces to soak-up the wonderful atmosphere of this bustling city. One of the most notable facts about Sluis is that unlike many other cities in the Netherlands and Belgium, all stores, shops, and restaurants are open seven days-a-week, including Sunday.
If shopping is not your most favorite past-time, Sluis has an extremely rich history and culture. Located in the border region with Belgium it has seen trade and historic events take place since the establishment of the town over 760 years ago. Find yourself going back in history by taking a walk across the historic ramparts with its restored gates, visit the windmill, and climb the tower of only belfry in the Netherlands to catch a view of the entire city.
Thank very much for viewing.

Good Morning John,
You paint an inspiring picture of Sluis, in your notes, a place that is new to me - oh, I must travel more!
Your photograph is full of spring vibrance. The greens look so young and fresh.
Your pov uses the canal to great advantage as it enters in the corner and leads to a strong disappearing point. The f/g triangle of grass anchors the shot well.
The arching trees appear to be studying their own, accurate reflections - who is the fairest one of all!
Have a lovely day,
serp2000 (45020) 2012-05-31 1:25
I just get accustomed, that every your post is a culture sensation on the TE.

A fascinating note and a beautiful photograph with which to illustrate it!
The composition of this picture is lovely and also very peaceful. The lighting is superb and the reflections on the calm water are beautiful. The colours in the whole photograph are clear and vibrant, the exposure perfect and the sharpness exquisite.
pierrefonds (68837) 2012-05-31 11:08
The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The distance between the two shores is giving depth to the scene. «the point of view is showing the details and colors of the scenery. The morning light is embellishing the colors. Have a nice day.
Bluejeans (64251) 2012-05-31 11:16

josepmarin (58359) 2012-06-02 11:56
this composition is a real symphony of beautiful colors, in the middle of a spectacular natural landscape, which you offer us by means of a very elegant and very effective composition graphically.
The reflections of these majestic trees on the water add a great aesthetic complement to your superb photo.
It's a good work, my friend.
Buin (42468) 2012-06-02 12:54
Your photo emanates a wonderful atmosphere and this sceney is a reall feast for the eyes - and for soul! This sky, this mirror of the water surface, all this green - a simply gorgeous symphony ... and for me a favourite!

kato (11630) 2012-06-03 6:08
You're capturing well this beautiful nature scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the spring landscape with rich greenery and calm canal. It's interesting in trees inclined with a slouch, too. And, the pretty white flower in this side draw out a good effect as well as the reflection projected to the canal.
Have a nice day.
chrisvek (7001) 2012-06-03 6:10

papagolf21 (105198) 2012-06-04 1:55
Bonjour, cher ami John,
Le charme opère merveilleusement à travers ce canal bordé d'arbres joliment feuillus se mirant délicieusement dans ces eaux calmes.
Le spectacle est de qualité (mais, cela, ce n'est pas nouveau, et je m'en réjouis).
carlo62 (51994) 2012-06-04 4:53
la bella nota contrasta con la foto, si parla di negozi e turismo, mentre l'immagine emana tranquillità e silenzio.
Gli alberi inclinati creano un riflesso particolare, sembra un'immagine speculare, con il blu del cielo che cambia nel verde del prato.
Sempre una grande qualità ed un buon occhio.
ourania (48684) 2012-06-04 6:04
this place in the outskirts of the old historic town of Sluis is very beautiful and pleasant, you are presenting it in a splendid photo with excellent depth and perspective that invite us to wander around the landscape and spend quite a long time observing the fascinating reflections in the canal. As always, lighting, sharpness and clarity are perfect, the range of textures and colours included in this lovely frame is extraordinary. It's amazing that this view is relaxing and invigorating at the same time. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best,
berek (50506) 2012-06-04 9:07
Another wonderful nature picture. I love reflections with clear weather. Well framed picture.
Have a great week.
chrislo (4097) 2012-06-04 10:50
Prachtige foto van een erg mooi stukje natuur met mooie fraaie kleuren en dieptewerking. De gebogen bomen laten zien dat het hier wel heel hard moet waaien. Er heerst een rustige landelijke sfeer met al dat groen waardoor je even kunt ontsnappen aan de hectische drukte van het dagelijks leven. Met dat stralende weer kreeg je heldere en perfecte weerspiegelingen in het stille diepblauwe water dat het perspectief nog versterkt. De bocht van de vaart leidt ons naar de huisjes in de verte. Dat moet zeker een paradijs voor wielertoeristen zijn.
Een tijdloos plaatje weer schitterend gedaan.
Schnappilic (9692) 2012-06-04 11:44
Congratulations for this beautiful picture. It seems to be like a painting. I like the framing, colors and perfect sharpness. A charming result as always.

It's a great pleasure for me to see and to comment this splendid image.
The composition is as usual perfect, the colors are gorgeous and perfectly saturated.
I also like the light and the superb quality, but, obviously, the reflections are the great addiction. Congratulations and TFS.
lakshmip1949 (19081) 2012-06-05 18:59
A very picturesque image showing the canal leading to the village at the other end. The canal is nicely lined with beautiful trees. The water is so calm and clean and the reflections are very clear and beautiful. Like the way the blues and greens dominating the image.
Angshu (56760) 2012-06-05 21:35
A fine diagonal with the contrast between the blue water reflecting the sky like a mirror & the green of the trees. The yellow flowers at the top corner looks radiant! Good work!
adramad (47624) 2012-06-06 7:27
Wonderful this beautiful corner, where these large trees provide a magnificent vision, with the bottom of the beautiful sky, their reflections in the channel are superb, perfect this side of the channel with the young grass, dotted with some wild flowers, no doubt an idyllic landscape , captured masterfully with your refined technique.
Great job, I love it.
Have a great evening.
PecoBud (3824) 2012-06-06 14:40
John, wow, beautiful photo presentation with such clear and perfect colors and reflections off the water. Superb DOF and your POV is well thought out. Excellent light management and the angle of this shot is fantastic for sure, great job here John, Bravo!!

Morteza_E (879) 2012-06-06 18:21
This picture is very beautiful and spectacular. Color and composition are very good.
All is good.
clic (17605) 2012-06-11 16:49
Bowing trees towards those pristine waters as a mark of gratitude for the provided nectar that makes them grow so beautifully or are they simply gazing at thier own reflexions?!
Anyway, they compose with the tall grasses at foreground an appealing bucolic scenery.
mirosu (16273) 2012-06-12 4:58
Hi John, this is fantastic nature-man hand interaction image. Superbly captured in my opinion. The reflections in the absolutely quiet water are amazing and make the scene really marvelous. I like also the composition with the river winding through the frame. Excellent work.!!!!
willperrett (11438) 2012-06-14 14:23
Charming rustic scene, and a classic composition, featuring a bend in the river. The trees leaning across the frame add an extra dimension: the diagonals are working against the predominant horizontals. Good work.
anokutan (15097) 2012-06-16 9:33
Splendid atmosphere and lovely colors of the canal.I like this capture.
TRB (14116) 2012-07-01 8:49
Reflections is excellent.
Sharpness, colors and very nice framing.
coolravi19 (549) 2012-07-07 6:11
Another amazing shot ....The reflection of trees in water is so serene & makes the image looks so beautiful
Excellent balance of color saturation & light
PaulVDV (30659) 2012-07-12 13:53
Een prachtige, rustige foto van een idyllische plaats aan de waterkant.
Heel mooi met de overhangende bomen en hun weerspiegelingen in het water.
Een haarscherpe foto met prachtige blauwe-groene contrasten.
Vele groeten, Paul
COSTANTINO (67274) 2012-07-16 4:21

quovadis (1867) 2012-10-01 18:07
Hi John !
Hmm, your camera is capable of producing blue/green images...!
Great, let me know where I can get one of those, please:)
Yes, there are still places where the modern world, created by humans, blends well with the nature. Yet, the new world order within its own doctrine of civilization seems to be rotten to its very roots, in contrary to the amazing, perfectly created world by the Master Creator of the entire universe.
A lovely presentation indeed ! Tfs.
elenimavrandoni (0) 2013-02-22 12:35
Hello John, beautiful natural picture like a painting, with the trees leaning forward paying their respects to the existence of the clear water, using it as a mirror to reflect their undisputable natural beauty in a magnificent way!
all the best always,

Reflections are also a favorite theme of mine and I am always happy to see good photographs of refections made by other photographers. Your picture is one of them.
