[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Dutch]
I have made these winterphoto on the Vlietlanden near Vlaardingen, an area of Nature Monuments. It is one of the layer peat areas which have not settled. This comes because never drainage works have taken place. There are 3 major canals (this is one of them) They must keep the surrounding areas dry. As you can see the photo is made in january last year. The weather is light freezing, with in abundance sun. A little further on the water you can see a thin layer of ice. The reflection from the sun in the water was the main reason to take this shot. Photo is handheld made. I hope you like him and thank you for viewing. Have a nice weekend and TFS Bob

Hi Bob,
very nice ambience...shooting straight into the sun can sometimes work and sometimes be a bit of a mess in my opinion....but here it works! i actually really like the glare of the sun on the water and the sky too, it creates a strange kind of symmetry...the little touch of colour in the refracted light is nice too. Good work my friend and have a great weekend!

Hi Bob,
So beautiful this scene...
I like the time you caught the low sun and ts reflection on the water.
It looks so peaceful with that wonderful light.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hello Bob,
This is a nice winter scenery, showing we can have some fine days in January too!
The shimmering water adds beauty to the scenery, and the naked trees contrast the sky so well!

Hello Bob,
Excellent composition in this beautiful reflection captured!
well controlled of the exposure and focus with so much serene and peaceful atmosphere as a whole!
well saturated colouration as well
I loved this photo from you a lot!
have a great weekend, my dear friend always


I like the reflectio,
Great landscape,
Even though you are pretty centered it works,


Hoi Bob,
Super idee en een super foto. Hier werkt het breken van de 1/3 regels perfect want het geeft de foto een goed balance en laat je de weerspiegeling zien. Je controle over de belichting is erg goed.

Great shot Bob,
The six points of light coming off the sun, and the still waters mirrored reflection is actually quite nice :)
Well done & TFS,

Excellent image, nice composition.

Hi Bob,
This is very beautiful but not that good for the camera :) This reflection is great and so is exposure and centered composition which works well in my opinion. This is a very lovely scenery. Thanks,

Hello Bob

The sun is spectacular in this ,reflection too.
A very peaceful and atmospheric shot.
The deep rich colours are lovely.
I can imagine myself sitting there taking this moment in!


Hello Bob, a very nice effect with the sun flare. I like how the trees silhouette against the sky at the back. the gradation of the blueness of the water worked out well. Good sharp shot. tfs rgds Necip

Gorgeous effect here with the sunlight in the water ---I can only think of diamonds. WOW! Beautiful.

Hallo Bob
A very beautiful visual and artistic presentation of this lovely but cold looking landscape. The sun's reflection in the water is just magic and looks like a star. A great image, which I liked a lot, and which conveys the depth and cold of winter. Thank you very much for sharing. Enjoy your day.
Kind regards
