Photographer's Note

A picture taken from little but beautiful village Middelburg Belgium, on the border crossing with Netherland, 500 inhabitant.
Documentary: In 1581, the town was attacked by the Geuzen (protestant religious fighters) and the church was burnt down. She was restored in the beginning of the 17th century. In 1617, Middelburg was uplifted to county. In 1702, the town was conquered by the Dutch, which fortified it. Not long after which, after a 2-days siege, it was taken back by the French.

This photo I have cropped to a better composition, but the colours are real.

I hope you like it.
