Photographer's Note

An another typical landscape of Friesland, an area which I like very much, landscape of polders whith channels and fetile meadows.

Here one sees in the BG two elements characteristic of the Friesland's landscape.

A big farm in three parts, a farm of the type " kop-hals-romp" in dutch language, the house ( kop of head), the central part ( hals of neck) and ,channels, bif farms with red roof, cows and the large part with a red roof ( romp of trunck). On the left, a raising bridge wich allows the passage of the boats.

Friesland ( in Frisian Fryslân) is a province in the north of the Netherlands and part of the bigger region know as Frisia ( part in Netherlans, part in Germany). In Friesland, they speak two languages: the Dutch and also the Frisian (West Frisian).

This photo was taken in the area of the lakes of Friesland, around Workum (Warkum in Frisian).
