I take this photo on a early wintermorning in december 2006. The sun came just above the horizon and gives everything a very warm glow. Windstil and bit fuzzy. The photo is handheld made. Cropped the photo a bit. Contrast +3.

You see here the Noordvliet. This is one of the both Vlieten and is a part of the area of Nature Monuments. This is of the layer peat areas which have not settled. There is never drainage works have taken place.

There is a story about these two Vlieten. In the middle ages, there was a kind of competition between two rich and important persons. They wanted both a good connection has to Vlaardingen and Delft. They don't reached an agreement and everyone have dug their own Vliet , "The Noordervliet and Boonervliet".

In the winter when a couple of days has frozen and there is good ice, everyone goes there skating.

Thanks for viewing and hope you like it. Bob

Hello Bob
What a beautiful place and marvellous shot!! I like a lot the perspective showing those beautiful colors and reflections so well. Magnificent framing and composition.
Thank you very much for showing.
My best regards

Hi Bob

Superb composition both in division of the frame and elements and also in the colours and tones. Very similar to where I live.


Hello Bob,
This is a nice capture for winter, as the feeling is warm and inviting instead of the opposite!
Some fine effects when the sunrays hit the dry grass, but the lead coloured water and sky tell the story of the season!

Hallo Bob,

Goede uitleg ook, dat wist ik niet.

Hi Bob,
You've picked up some wonderful reflections under overcast skies.
I like the warm, pastel-like color tones here,
Great job!

I like the colours here Bob, so rich and the reflections are so pretty too.
I have done a WS showing hbow I would have cropped off some of the sky. I hope you like it

Hello Bob

I love the warm colours and tones.
This has a painting like quality to it.
A lovely atmosphere.
The placid water has such beautiful reflections.
I like how there is a little opening that leads the eye and the imagination through it.

Hi Bob, a wonderful dreamy feel to this, almost like a classic Dutch landscape painting! Very nices tones and soft colours, very well done!

Hoi Bob,
Op een donkere dag als vandaag is deze plaat alleen maar mooier. De warme kleuren van de ochtend zon op het drooge riet geven deze koude winterdag een zeer warm gevoel.
Ik vind vooral het mistige effect in de verte erg mooi. Het geeft deze foto nog meer sfeer. De Ws van Janice is qua compositie beter.

The warm glow and the colors are fantastic! Beautiful reflections in the serene waters. I like the composition as it, but I most likely would try croping about half as much as was cropped in workshop suggestion. Such a calm and soothing photo!

Hello Bob,
I'm sorry to have missed this wonderful winter image of yours. Excellent depth and I like the colour of the reeds and their reflection in the water. A very clear and beautiful composition.
Many thanks and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Bob,

The reflections in the water are assets to the composition. The point of view takes our eyes toward the trees in the background which is giving depth to the photo. The light is enhancing the colors. have a nice day.
