Photographer's Note

Last Saturday the weather was excellent for taking pictures! I took this one next to the Linschoterbos, a small forest belonging to the estate Linschoten (province Utrecht).

The trees next to the water are willows, cut in a typical Dutch way, leaving a 'knotwilg' (pollard willow). Actually these ones really need to be cut soon. The branches are long and relatively flexible, and therefore suitable for plaiting of for instance baskets.

This photo is for Dennis Bours, following a discussion we had on making interesting compositions in the Netherlands.
