I hope you enjoy of these picture, I try always to do my best for a good image.
These picture is taken two weeks ago, together with the previous picture from Bruges "Bruges: Our of Lady" this on another place "De Coupure" 2 km of the market of centre of Bruges
The picture shows the marina of Bruges for a small part against the special bridge.
See my second picture with a view of the bridge.
These place is a little exterior the city but a very good place for a good stroll.
This port is only for visitors. He is in the very lovely old town of Bruges, urban, yet very quiet and close to shops, restaurants and the historic part of the city.
The port has major facilities.
Getting in and out of the harbour to get the Conzett bridge to be opened
In 2002 Swiss engineer Jürg Conzett opened up the city ramparts with this ingenious design spanning the Coupure.
Two steel pipes are supported by four solid walls and the roadway is attached to the pipes with cables.
When the pipes rotate on their axis, the roadway is raised.
Brilliant in its simplicity and perfectly integrated in the surroundings.

Bonjour, cher ami John,
Voir les péniches se déplacer lentement sur les canaux et profiter pleinement du paysage doit être un pur régal.
La mise en image, comme à l'accoutumée est très réussie.
Très bonne journée.
dkmurphys (58755) 2013-11-29 0:02
Very fine scene of autumn. I like the colors and the deep calm atmosphere. Well seen, have a great day ahead.
Romano46 (18472) 2013-11-29 1:28
dalle tue ultime foto è stato possibile apprezzare la bellezza dell'autunno nella regioone delle Fiandre.
Quest'ultima ne è l'ennesima conferma e fa venire il desiderio di una navigazione lungo i suoi canali.
Frutto di una bella composizione la foto ha il suo maggior pregio nel colore al quale si associa una particolare cura del contrasto in un ambiente dominato da gran nitidezza.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
lousat (91424) 2013-11-29 1:36
Salut John,tu as bien pousse' les couleurs pour avoir le meilleur effect depuis cette prise de vue,les couleurs de l'automne sont un excellent ingredient a cette magnifique composition,dont le bateau et pareil a la cherise sur le gateau..ehehe...details impressionants et exposition parfaicte.Mes compliments et belle journee',Luciano
Subhogen (4067) 2013-11-29 1:47
Excellent autumn shot.
I love the colors, positioning of the subjest, clarity and sharpness.
cornejo (42353) 2013-11-29 2:50
Hi John, very good picture of this interesting composition in this city that I remember with admiration and affection, very well composed and captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, depth, good light and color. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good afternoon and happy weekend.
All the best from southern Spain.
mesutilgim (95260) 2013-11-29 3:22
Hello dear John,
Very nice capture from Brugge, autumnal and quite serene.
Again a perfect TE entry with many interesting notes.
TFS and have a nice weekend
jacquest (18927) 2013-11-29 3:51
This is a nice autumn scene with beautiful strong colors. It invites to think about a ride on the canal on this boat. The shot in the WS is also quite interesting. Both are well done with very good quality.
pierrefonds (66462) 2013-11-29 4:39
The principle of the thirds is respected, the sky, the building and the river. The point of view is showing the détails, the colors of the boat, of the trees and of the boat. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
Sergiom (79721) 2013-11-29 5:03
J'aime beaucoup l'ambiance de calme et de sérénité qui se dégage de cette superbe composition. Le cadrage est excellent et nous laisse voir tout ce qu'il y a autour du bateau avec une grande netteté.
Silvio1953 (143240) 2013-11-29 6:00
Ciao John, great view of lovely place with beautiful trees, excellent clarity, wonderful autumnal colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
tyro (24828) 2013-11-29 6:01
Again, you have given us an interesting note and a stunningly beautiful photograph to illustrate it.
The soft light here is beautiful and the boat stands out perfectly against the backround of trees in the autumn colours. Your composition is excellent too, your exposure perfect and the details and sharpness are exquisite.
snunney (99116) 2013-11-29 6:09
A pleasant composition nicely lit and with good colours and clarity. I like the point of view with the barge seemingly coming into the frame. The flags add some pleasant splashes of colours and stand out well against the trees.
ikeharel (71459) 2013-11-29 6:13
Good evening John,
Notable autumn-brown tone prevailed and gave a special texture to the scene, well in contrast with the brighter colors of the boat and its flags.
The most impressive object I found in this fine photo, is the 5 or 6 big trees planted as a groupe on mid-picture. Good depth through and great clear photo.
Have a nice friday evening,
timecapturer (49288) 2013-11-29 6:21
it looks like your trees have lost most of their leaves already like ours here on the south coast of England. Still a few to brighten this wonderful shot though that is a colourful and beautifully balanced composition. A quality tribute to the season.
Have a great weekend - B.
Corry (4508) 2013-11-29 6:27
Belle photo de cette scène automnale. Le point de vue est excellent. Je trouve les couleurs magnifiques. Félicitations.
williewhistler (16396) 2013-11-29 7:29
as is usual you have composed a nicely balanced photograph with excellent details,this one has the benefit of a most pleasing Autumn glow.
Your WS and note add greatly to the overall interest and enjoyment of the scene.
Kind regards Les.
abmdsudi (54097) 2013-11-29 8:10
I like the peaceful delicate feel to this picturesque canal scene with the background gives it a different feel with nice touch of autumnal colors. The contrasting boat is there at the right spot to anchor the eye with lovely ripply water, this does look a beautiful place with a calm feel to it. A great canalside scene, well composed and exposed the presentation is spot on. Congrats
aleXundar (1256) 2013-11-29 8:51
A spectacular autumn scene with vivid colors and sharpness.
I don't know why your photos are always so charming... is it colors, or composition or something else?
I think, it is your sense of proportion.
However, this one is brilliant as usual.
With warm regards sir,
ourania (45500) 2013-11-29 9:07
I like very much the way the barge is gliding into the frame, following the perspective of the bank. A fine composition that presents this peaceful scene with balance and elegance. There's superb sense of depth and the textures are absolutely natural and attractive. You've managed lighting and contrast excellently getting the best colours the moody day had to offer. I like very much how the reflection illuminates the neutrally coloured area in the foreground. Congratulations and thank you! Many thanks for your kind words which I read with great appreciation!
All the best, have a great weekend,
eldancer1 (36343) 2013-11-29 9:28
I've heard so much about cruising those canals in Europe, maybe someday I will try it. Nice capture of this scene with good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.
holmertz (52782) 2013-11-29 10:32
As usual you show us a very pleasant view and the colours and light management are no doubt first class. Just for a change I actually this time prefer the workshop photo. The distinct diagonal and good depth created by the bridge, the biker in a red jacket and the presence of a few swans make that photo, in mu humble opinion, a more distinct composition with stronger individual details.
Noel_Byrne (31132) 2013-11-29 11:04
This is a lovely scene, and what really strikes me about is the cool mix of the forest scene on the right, with the very traditional architecture on left. Not often I see the mix so well like this. The boat is a lovely inclusion, the flag is vibrant and adds a burst of bright color.
Thanks as always
Sonata11 (33831) 2013-11-29 12:32
this is impressive and spectacular composition, splendid light and wonderfully framed. Well done!
Have a nice weekend, Barbara
mcmtanyel (22690) 2013-11-29 17:39
Another very high quality water transport photo from the master! I love the autumn colors and the sharpness of the image.
jemaflor (97305) 2013-11-29 23:42
A photo well balanced with boat houses and trees, light is perfect as the sharpness, good coloured details with flags.
fds (9364) 2013-11-30 0:25
dear jhm great picture of the autumn with the canal and the boat and very beautiful autumn atmosphera
very nice composition dear friend
mirosu (16227) 2013-11-30 1:38
I am glad to hear that you have enjoyed me Kerala photo series. It was very nice journey. There are still many interesting places there, I have to go there again (may be next year).
I like your peaceful photo with nice autumn mood. The light is very good and the beautiful fall colors nice to watch.
I think that you spent some time studying composition and wisely waited for the small ship. The framing is spot on - you have positioned the ship and the houses behind nicely on the left side, in this way you have created excellent balance and harmony. The right side is well filled with the trees. In this way all the elements in this photo are excellently balanced. The foreground water interest is abundant in texture. I like this photo a lot. Well done my friend.
Wish you a merry Advent Sunday.
trevormoffiet (3112) 2013-11-30 2:44
A very beautiful Autumn scene in Bruges. Very nice colours and sharp detail throughout the image.
Buin (42466) 2013-11-30 5:01
Hallo John! Yes, this is quite a different sight of Brügge - as we call it. No magnificent old archtecture, no masses of tourists, no souvenir shops ... "only" a calm and a park-like place. Thank you for the workshop photo! This bridge really looks fancy. The colourful flags in the main picture are a wonderful eye-catcher in all this "November blues".
Greetings from cold, wet, grey and hazy Westphalia!
Have a nice Advent weekend!
saxo042 (37884) 2013-11-30 7:51
Autumn is clearly turning to winter but in your area, there are still leaves on the trees, in strong colours. The flags on the boat add a different colour accent. A calm and peaceful mood here.
PaulVDV (29019) 2013-11-30 10:22
In de workshop toon je een brug die ik niet ken. Die foto is echt heel goed samengesteld en de fietser, mooi in het rood, bevindt zich op de perfecte plaats. Het was een aangename verrassing om in de workshop te gaan kijken.
Op de hoofdfoto glijdt de kanaalboot langzaam in beeld op het rustige kanaal. De twee vlaggen vooraan en de rode kleur van de stuurhut steken scherp af tegen de herfskleuren van de bomen en struiken.
Prettige zondag, Paul
rbassin (22813) 2013-11-30 10:29
une très belle qualité de photo: les couleurs, la présence du bateau et la lumière sur l'eau sont magnifiques.
TRB (14116) 2013-11-30 12:15
Sharpness, colors, framing and image is great.
excellent exposure, very nice photo.
I like very, very nice autumn sharing.
Nicou (142176) 2013-11-30 20:01
Quelle vue de ce bâteau bleu marine et blanc et dans un tel décor végétatif une explosion de beaux arbres aux couleurs de l'automne c'est sueprbe.
Bravo et beau dimanche
berek (50494) 2013-12-01 0:05
See the barges moving slowly along the canals and enjoy the landscape should be a pure delight. Setting image as usual is very successful.
Have a nice Sunday
carlo62 (48325) 2013-12-01 0:23
un bel paesaggio autunnale spezzato dalla barca con le sue bandiere colorate.
Bruges rimane affascinante in ogni stagione, mi piacerebbe poterla visitare più frequentemente.
krzychu30 (15512) 2013-12-01 0:57
the combination of different,vivid and well-contrasting colors make your shot really captivating and so eye-catching!
Lovely autumn scene perfectly captured with its unique mood and in first class quality!
Have a nice sunday
umutlu101 (13629) 2013-12-01 4:19
aussi beau que réel
silah (2798) 2013-12-01 5:40
This is very beautiful fall capture which is wisely framed, colourful and well sharpened as well. TFS, GREETINGS, Salih.
Have a good sunday....
kato (11630) 2013-12-01 5:44
You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the peaceful suburban place with lovely houses and a row of tree dyed to autumnal tints, the calm canal with the small port. The whole is harmonized well by a good arrangement and beautiful/tasteful color combination. And, it's interesting to hear the city ramparts with this ingenious design by engineer.
danos (97849) 2013-12-01 9:28
nice the view of this Autumn scenery with the light and the colours to are captured perfect.I like the calmness and the tranquility of the place as the excellent presentation.
Schnappilic (9690) 2013-12-01 10:04
Autumn days are gone. You remember us the beauty of this season in a pleasant way. Splendid atmosphere!
resat1972 (7576) 2013-12-01 10:08
Good Evening John
very nice autumn in Belgium
very nice depth and sharpness
chrislo (4155) 2013-12-01 10:59
Sorry voor mijn late reactie, ik had niet eerder gezien dat je een nieuwe foto gepost had. Dit is een beeld van Brugge dat we niet gewoon zijn te zien, ver van de toeristische toeloop en trekpleisters. Heel mooi heb je rechts van de boot de ruimte behouden, zo krijgen we een overzicht van het park met zijn mooie herfstkleuren en zo komt de foto aangenaam rustig over met toch een melancholisch sfeertje, dat zeker verbonden is aan het seizoen en aan de grijze bewolkte lucht. Het is een leuke foto, maar toch heb ik een lichte voorkeur voor de WS die evenwichtiger van compositie is. De lijnen van de brug maken een mooie diagonaal en zorgen voor een extra diepte. De fietser is een uitstekende toevoeging die wat dynamiek in het beeld brengt en ons aan de andere kant van de brug leidt. Prima timing ! Knap gezien en prachtig vastgelegd. Fijn werk, John!
Miguel82 (27646) 2013-12-01 11:02
Dear John, what a nice view of that canal and house boat, autumn colors visible on the tree leaves, excellent resolution bright colors, thanks, warm regards
claudeD (38734) 2013-12-01 12:01
Wonderful picture from Brugge showing this amazing autumn scenery. Vy fine composition and perfect sharpness. I like the view very much.TFS.
With tegards from Luxembour
jcpix (13930) 2013-12-01 17:59
Even without a particular point of focus here on a given subject, this still works well to convey the atmosphere of the location and overall sentiment of the Autumn season.
I particularly like where the blue flag is positioned within the frame, drawing my attention as the color stands out from the others...but not so much that it's distracting. It appears calm and quiet, another nice place to get away from the crowds and noise. :)
fabbs99 (17167) 2013-12-01 18:18
The colors and lights are perfect in this frame.Great composition .Very well done.TFS.
Alco (7399) 2013-12-01 20:40
Magnificent fall picture with a nice park covered by a carpet of leaves.Great composition with that boat on the left inviting visitors for an interesting ride on that beautiful canal.With a so nice place,I think I am ready for the ride.Very well done.
Have a nice day.
Kielia (24077) 2013-12-02 7:49
I have seen so many impressions of this town here, but this one is particularly interesting! You have chosen a very well working POV on the canal. The perspective is excellent. My compliments also for the notes!
rychem (36063) 2013-12-02 8:24
Very nice scene and very nice scenery, beautiful autumn photo with perfect quality
Fis2 (97673) 2013-12-02 9:25
Your photo is nicely.
Good frame and super colors.
Photo has climate.
Have a nice evening
halikarnas (7656) 2013-12-02 9:27
Muhteşem belgesel fotoğraflarından bir.Yarınlara öyle fotoğraflar bırakıyorsunki ; birer hazine onlar.
macjake (67806) 2013-12-02 9:50
as usual, we see another attractive scene from you and Belgium :)
I like how the rust color on the roofs help to bring out the autumn colors a bit more.
its also nice to see the attractiveness despite the poor light and poor weather conditions.
enjoy your day
ChrisJ (114055) 2013-12-02 10:49
Nice reflections and good sharpness with a soft diffused light and good warm cold color contrasts between the blue red and yellow at left. The Fall colors are wonderful and also contrast well against the blue grey sky along with the red roof tops at left. Tfs!
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2013-12-03 0:38
namaste John, such a nice shot it is. The colours of autumn which I like here a lot. Great composition with the boat arriving. Like the depth and sharpness of it too. Excellent shot as ever. Tfs.
After some busy working days I am back here again. For the photographic journey... For you and with you...
irek1 (861) 2013-12-03 2:47
Both pictures are very interesting. Great, autumn colors are bright & vivid. Very good perspective with boat on the river. I see, there is a full color autumn at the image, but I'm looking first signs of the winter in Greater Poland... and I can't find it.
Zucca (8) 2013-12-03 12:14
Nice quiet scene and natural colors, it seems that trees kept their leaves late that Autumn, what a chance for the photographers !
Have a nice evening,
Didi (60588) 2013-12-05 3:50
Bonjour mon ami
Une belle vue à l'ambiance automnale paisible
Je me demande si il était possible d'inclure un peu plus la péniche avec un léger déplacement vers la gauche ?
COSTANTINO (65272) 2013-12-05 5:02
autumn and boats is an interesting title
but I love autumn and its colors
deep peaceful atmosphere adding
beauty and calmness
nice place for walking
Kugart (1778) 2013-12-06 1:56
A perfect autumnal scene from Brugge with the trees on the side of the river loosing their leaves and the boat perfectlyrds positioned within the frame. Lovely clear sharp colourful shot. Nice work.
adramad (45624) 2013-12-07 14:38
These huge trees give a great charm to the composition, also its variety of shades of color, ranging from gold to green with some reddish tint adds much beauty, behind the boat and the house is a good complementary touch.
A colorful perfect very natural.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Well done. I Like
Enjoy the weekend.
jmdias (64470) 2013-12-07 23:41
despite the dark weather the image has a perfect light. I liked the elements we can see here, with the boat and the flags adding a sense of movement. TFS.
josepmarin (58357) 2013-12-09 2:58
the river boat and its flags are a good eye-catcher in the composition, but I like also the beauty of the trees dressed in autumn colours, which stands out efficiently in the ensemble.
A splendid management of the weak light of a cloudy day, with which you have reached a high chromatic quality.
A beautiful work, my friend.
ruisc_pt (10892) 2013-12-16 13:09
This is quite an image,
Nobody could say isn't autumn.
Wonderful colours and sharpening.
Angshu (56758) 2013-12-20 4:15
Fasninating set of pictures, especially of the bridge which is a marvel in engineering simplicity! This one has a small barge on the left though I tend to agree with our friend Didi about the left side...Anyway a fine picture as always!
carper (96) 2014-01-08 10:38
