Hi dear John, A very beautiful image of the snow covered canal and the beautiful houses on the banks. Also so beautiful is the windmill and the couple on the right side. I like the swath of clear sky above. Wonderful composition, as always !
besnard (55087) 2012-03-08 23:18
Une très belle image de saison avec une bonne profondeur d'image et le petit moulin qui accroche le regard. La veste rouge ajoute de la couleur à l'ensemble.
Bravo et bonne journée.

emka (86409) 2012-03-08 23:23
Wonderful view of the frozen canal. The sky was so blue and clear and you show us a lot of it. Beautiful balanced composition, with the red accent. stunning colourts and sharpness. In Poland it was also very cold but in rather short period. Now luckily winter is over, I hope.
Warm regards Malgo
macjake (61434) 2012-03-08 23:24
I guess spring is just around the corner isn't it!
thats a good thing :)
my favorite part of this photo is the windmill way off into the distance, in the depth of the photo. Without that, i think the photo would not have the same visual impact.
Ricx (13495) 2012-03-08 23:35
Morning John, a lovely posting to say good bye to Winter.. The sun on the nearly frozen canal bringing out the detail.. An interesting note.. we have had warmer winter this year.. although February was cold.. Nice posting TFS Rich
jurek1951 (42194) 2012-03-08 23:47
Wonderful winter scenery presented here. Looks very interesting. Great colours, point of view and details of winter season.
japiey (10163) 2012-03-08 23:53
Hi John ~
A visual delight !
The vast blue sky , snowy moods , human presence , and visuals of architectural beauty !!
Excellent in framing.
Have a nice day~
SnapRJW (31627) 2012-03-09 0:10
Hello John - Now this is a cracking image. Beautifully composed, I love the large expanse of softly graduated sky and the horizon placed of the third is perfectly placed. The diminishing perspective with several lines converging in the distance is compositionally strong. As to the scene delightful. The red jacket makes a good counterpoint to the red roofs. Super and a pleasure to view. Warm regards Rosemary
ChrisJ (104209) 2012-03-09 0:12
I love that bright red jacket the child is wearing as it contrasts superbly against the blue sky. Good sharpness & the frozen canal adds perspective. The windmill makes a good focal point in the bg. Tfs!
mauro61 (52633) 2012-03-09 0:32
immagine sempre molto curata con un'ottima resa dei colori.
Speria sia la fine di questo inverno dal grande freddo...
Mi piacciono le diagonali del canale ghiacciato che creano una buona profondità con il mulino sullo sfondo.
Royaldevon (33385) 2012-03-09 0:43
Good Morning John,
Your shot has that unmistakable quality of a Dutch landscape painting: perfect thirds composition, emphasis placed on the huge sky, superb guide lines, iconic Dutch symbols and human interest in attractive colours.
Difficult to improve on this!
Have a lovely day,
mohammad_H (9728) 2012-03-09 0:44
Resolution and beautiful color combination with blue sky and snow attractive landscape depicted

Lovely capture of that canal. I like the atmosphere in that sunny cold day. Well done, enjoy the weekend.
papagolf21 (90440) 2012-03-09 1:31
Bonjour, cher ami John,
Voici venir l'Hiver dans son manteau de glace.
Place au Roi qui s'avance en grondant, place, place !
Et la bise, à grands coups de fouet sur les mollets,
Fait courir le gamin. Le vent dans les collets.
Merci de nous offrir une si belle image.
josepmarin (57947) 2012-03-09 2:23
a very luminous day without clouds and with a blue very clean sky, which allowed you to take this magnificent photo, the last one of this winter.
An excellent framing with a lot of space for the sky, but with the beautiful landscape covered with snow, the frozen canal and the windmill in the lower part of the composition, in a very brilliant and attractive image.
A superb work, my friend.
ebingul (1962) 2012-03-09 2:34
A nice farewell to winter.Another signature photograph of yours with great DOF and perspective.You highlighted clear blue sky very well.Beautiful details,colours and amazing clarity as always.
Congrats,TFS and best regards,
sacavem (18614) 2012-03-09 3:00
Today in Lisbon, the temperature will reach 22º.
This beautiful image in Portugal is pure fancy:) Our sun of winter is wonderful, therefore many Belgians and Dutches pass the winter in Portugal in auto-caravans some with the grandsons smallest.
Excellent composition, very nice colours, and sharpness.
finlay (1549) 2012-03-09 3:45
Wow! Another of your terrific canal shots. The winter scene under clear blue sky is superb. As always your depth of field and perspective are fantastic. In this shot I like the windmill close to the far bank and the couple walking on the near side. The red jacket certainly catches the eye against the white landscape.
jacquest (18871) 2012-03-09 4:11
The oblique line of the canal gives deepness, while the eyes are attracted to the other elements in the image. The composition is well balanced with the house, the mill and the couple walking. I like to see the water trying to get above the ice on the canal which is a sihn of spring. Very good natural colors.
npecanhuk (69998) 2012-03-09 4:24
I bet you're all so happy with the end of wintertime... this year has been hard, hasn't it?
Sharpness, exposure, chosen pov, colors, horizontal format, black & white borders and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,
Sonata11 (33697) 2012-03-09 4:37
Awesome view of winter scenery. Very attractive and beautiful architecturewith windmill and details. Wonderful composition of beautiful place. Marvellous executed with excellent sharpness, colors, fantastic POV. Very lovely picture. I love it s lot. Awesome work. Congrats.
All the best,
Yiannis84 (2824) 2012-03-09 4:50
What a wonderful composition of beautiful winter scenery and gorgeous place..excellent quality and very nice framing, great combiination of colors and superb clarity as usual..the advantage is the simplicity of the composition! very well done
Kielia (24073) 2012-03-09 4:58
I appreciate this fantastic image a lot, since it is showing this already well known canal from a different POV. Excellent perspective and a very good management of the light! It is the high sky that makes the impression very attractive. My compliments!
pierrefonds (60360) 2012-03-09 5:21
The length of the canal is giving depth and perspective to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the houses and of the wondmill. The reflection of the light on the snow is embellishing the colors. Have a nice day.
Sergiom (67404) 2012-03-09 6:28
C'est beau de voir ce paysage sous cette belle petite neige fine. Cela donne une impression complètement différente de l'endroit, mais très belle. L'image est nette et soignée.
ikeharel (62925) 2012-03-09 6:44
Taking a stroll along the frozen canal can be with lot's of wind and cold, John. I admire the fact you dare to take a hike in this freezing weather and shoot photos.
Nice DOF and clearity as always. Havea nice weekend,
jlbrthnn (76037) 2012-03-09 7:00
This last picture of winter, is an excellent document of this extraordinary time. The perspective and framing that uses the channel and the diagonal, gives a great depth, accentuated by the sharpness of the picture. Excellent quality. Bravo.
Have a nice day
Hansaphotos (7341) 2012-03-09 7:07
Not easy to leave the winter when it shows its best side as in this image. Love the great perspective. Lovely and well balanced composition with splendid colours and light. Great work:) TFS. Have a nice WE.
Best regards, Erling
rychem (28037) 2012-03-09 7:55

blue sky with snowy paysage exist pleasant and fondle eye
jjcordier (79002) 2012-03-09 9:02
Très bonne photo du "plat pays" en hiver. La lumière est belle et la composition, qui laisse une grande part au ciel, très réussie; le moulin et les personnes s'éloignant (comme l'hiver!) accrochent le regard.
siudzi (34141) 2012-03-09 9:06
Another beautiful winter picture captured with so perfect composition and technique. A top quality work. Bravo! Have a nice WE!
cornejo (35791) 2012-03-09 9:37
Hi John, I love this lovely photo of the winter landscape on a special day with a wonderful sky. A wonderful image with clarity, depth, lovely light and wonderful color. Very good job my friend, congratulations. Good night and happy weekend. Tfs.
holmertz (45187) 2012-03-09 10:12
This lovely sky really deserves such a large part of the composition. It leaves a perfect third of the space to the ground with its canal, windmill and a very brigh tred coat. If it wasn't too cold this must have been a marvellous day for a long walk with the camera at hand.
SWEETFREEDOM (23488) 2012-03-09 12:21
picture taken on a great winter day (but i presume very cold) nice belgian landscape and d.o.f.
bertolucci (13362) 2012-03-09 13:23
Een rituele afsluiting van de winter, en wat voor een ! Overtuigende kleuren, een sterk perspectief, verhalendheid door de wandelaars en een grote helderheid. En: fijn ook die lage horizon. Heel mooi werk!

Again wonderful composition wity beautiful white-re house surrounded winter trees ,very nice windmil and lovely walking the happy couple holding hands at the sides of frozen canal under pretty blue sky. Excellent presentation with perfect diagonal perspective to get sense of infinity depth and well light managemet to obtain good sharpness and clarity.
Have a nice weekend

very nice shot from winter season with nice frame work...like the snow field.very nice light management.the walking couple at right add a human presence in the frame.
Good color tones, sharpness, clarity, wonderful POV and DOF too. Perfectly well done. I like it.
All the best,
Buin (42362) 2012-03-10 3:38
Yes John, that's winter really at its best! Whata lovely scenery. A hike there must be wonderful.
The big space of sky here works wonderfully. I would like to step into this photo ... ;-)
Thank you for your interesting comment!
Greetings from grey and wet Westphalia!

I like composition.
Persons add savor of photo.
Have a nice weekend
lakshmip1949 (19081) 2012-03-10 7:21
This is an amazing shot showing so many details in one image. I like the snow covered road and the sidewalk which makes the image very bright. The person with the red coat grabs the attention. The windmill at the far end and the beautiful red roof house add additional interest. Very beautiful image with lovely colors, depth and sharpness.
vasilpro (41099) 2012-03-10 9:42
Superb composition with beautiful wintry atmosphere and wonderful light management, excellent POV and DOF, very good sharpness and color tones, very nice framework, TfS!
Have a nice weekend, Vasilis.
TopGeo (38208) 2012-03-10 13:45
Hello John! This is a lovely winter scene. The colors are so rich, vibrant, striking and very frozen. The low POV creates a nice DOF and a nice view as well as the elements of buildings create a nice texture to the photo. The second level exposure gives the trees a nice blur which denotes the chilly breeze. I love the over all effect lights on the image, it stimulates an understated look. Great Job! Well captured!
ciakgiak (30423) 2012-03-10 14:21
L'ultima immagine invernale ha tutte le caratteristiche di un'immagine primaverile.
I colori e l'atmosfera sono tipici della stagione che sta arrivando, anche se il tempo non vuol saperne di migliorare. Come sempre si evince una bellissima prospettiva ed una cura maniacale verso i particolari. Complimenti.
Un caro abbraccio
golus (2893) 2012-03-11 3:46
Another great winter shot composed with utmost technical skills. I really liked the beauty of endless deep scene under a vast blue sky. Magnificent lighting and colors very much please the viewer. Thanks for sharing. Best wishes,

Hi my friend
Congratulations beautiful at the best
PaulVDV (24379) 2012-03-11 15:37
Met het prachtige weer van vandaag ben je er zeker met de fiets en met de camera op uitgetrokken.
Op zulk moment is het ook heel fijn even terug te blikken op de koude winter. Maar toch niet koud genoeg (of net niet lang genoeg) om te kunnen schaatsen op dit kanaal. Alhoewel de ijzige lucht, de sneeuw en het ijs op het water doen vermoeden dat het toen zeker niet warm was.
De persoon met de rode jas brengt een vrolijke kleur op deze foto. Toch is het de windmolen die mijn aandacht krijgt. Mooi geplaatst op de foto en een goede compositie met de diagonale lijnen van het kanaal en van de baan die naar elkaar toe lopen waar de bomenrij begint.
Vele groeten, Paul
Alco (7131) 2012-03-11 19:24
Magnificent winter landscape.I like all these lines leading to the trees in the background.The water will soon take the place of the ice and snow on the canal.A beautiful sunny day for all those pedestrians along the canal.Very nice colors and great sharpness.Very well done.
Angshu (56572) 2012-03-11 22:22
Dag dear John
The last winter has been severe in Europe & your notes also spell that. A fascinating view of the canal almost fully frozen. The perspective as always is excellent culminating on the windmill & the exposure is wonderfully done with the reds...the tiled roof & the jumper on the kid standing out. An excellent shot!
dip (23844) 2012-03-12 0:29

Un cadrage bas pour nous faire admirer la simplicité de cette image.Très bien vus ces personnages dans la composition,ce moulin à l'arrière plan et ce dégradé en douceur de ce ciel.
archimatica (20421) 2012-03-13 16:02
Fantastic light and sharpness.
I like the swath of clear sky above.
Great, as usual ;)

une Belgique aux allures hollandaises. Une photo dont tu as le secret, le choix du lieu, le profit des parfaites lumières, du soleil, du ciel bleu et de la glace.
Une exposition nickel.
eldancer1 (32033) 2012-03-16 9:16
If not for the cold this looks like a nice place to take a walk in the morning. Nicely captured with good details and wonderful colors. Very well done, tfs.
mkamionka (32469) 2012-03-17 1:35
very original composition. I really like the feeling of space here. The view seems incredibly wide. Nice winter atmosphere captured under blue sky.
The walking couple adds some more action and interest here.
Very well done!
serp2000 (42060) 2012-03-17 2:48
Glad to see your photos again. Fine minimalist composition and superb quality! I met 2012 in Milano, I can't say that we had so blue sky too.
Have a good weekend!

Il tuo "stile" di proporre al meglio le fotografie.
Questo ampio spazio che "ingloba" simmetrie e sfondo .
Un lavoro di grande spessore artistico.

This is a very beautiful landscape
It has really excellent composition,details and colors

siolaw (38292) 2012-03-23 5:23
I like the smooth texture of the icy canal and sky! Greet colours and sharpness too, not to mention the strong perspective and pleasant view!
Ninello52 (7572) 2012-03-25 11:19
Cool the celestial space of the sky! A surprisingly clear sky, no clouds! Excellent light throughout the scene, the presence of two wonderful little human figures!
Best regards, Nino.
Hanssie (10463) 2012-03-27 22:50
Wonderful winter-world, John !
Lines and details of houses and mill, all is very clear, nice photo.
( I only would have seen the picture without the persons, but no worry, that's my problem:-))
( Wordt vervolgd..... )
foozi (7101) 2012-04-16 0:10
such a scenic beauty of a perspective , colors and exciting subjects. The houses and the windmill is such and attraction to me.
Nice soft colors and environment that give a pleasant view.
What a composition.!
Henryk_Bilor (20799) 2012-04-18 5:00
Early winter-end :). I see that in the Alps there was a snowfall last night ;). Your picture as usually - lovely with great fresh colours and excellent perspective.
daddo (25807) 2012-05-04 21:47
The photo looks like a precious miniature. I love the crisp colours, lovely light and exquisite details. Delicate work. Regards. Klaudio.
wolf38 (31284) 2012-06-14 11:31
Hi John. Flat land, looking into the distance. The clear air of winter makes the colors glow. The windmill on the horizon is a wonderful eye-catching. And the red anorak is an important color pulse. Overall very good, excellent, including the composition. Rgds, Wolfgang.
abmdsudi (46898) 2012-07-07 1:15
You have keen eyes for making the ordinary seems extraordinary, it's lovely winterscape and this has to be one of the most beautiful I have seen With the figures stunningly adds the perspective and depth to this fantastic view. The wonderful blue sky further adds to the beauty. Superb view
ourania (36366) 2012-07-19 4:41
a superb composition, so delightful and elegant. I love how you've enclosed in the bottom third of the frame the sweeping view of the winter landscape and with marvellous clarity captured the lovely features of this place. Depth and perspective are captivating, lighting is brilliant and colours absolutely natural and lovely. I'm very impressed by the sky and the way it functions in your composition. Although it's totally clear, it is very attractive and fills the other two thirds of the frame superbly. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

The decision to show mostly sky here was a good one I think, it is pure and without any variation. It makes the world under it seem so small, like a scale model. The naked trees and frozen water are quite unique elements in this image. I can only imagine living in a climate like this! Superb image.

So flat, where ever I look ice and snow. It feels cold indeed. Good to include the two walking towards the house on the right, it gives us a sense of dimensions. Good photo job

Last of the winter photos are always my favorite; winter has lost its fierce nature while its beautiful aspects linger on. Nice perspective, the couple walking along the canal have made this photo!
