FLEMISH IMPRESSIONISM

When we go to Belgium, it is a MUST to visit a UNIQUE area, close to my place of birth in West-Flanders...

 

A few miles from Brugge, you have the small town of Damme.

In the Middle-Ages, this used to be the harbour of Brugge, one of the wealthiest cities in the North.

Due to silt the North Sea is now about 25 miles out, but Damme retained it's reputation for good food and beer, wonderful old buildings full of the history of revolutionary Flanders.

Centuries later Napoleon saw the importance of the area and ordered a system of canals to be built.

Today, whichever road you come from, if you want to get to Damme, you'll drive along those beautiful canals.

I walked across one of the bridges, to find this on the other side, another endless tree lined lane.

 

A TREAT LARGE and View On Black

An unbelievable landscape that just goes on and on and on... A photographer's paradise!

No matter what the weather is like, it is ALWAYS MAGIC! It was a warm, sultry hazy day...

This image was not 'treated' or 'miss-treated' in any way in photoshop!

Lead and enjoy a good life, do and say things that enrich... and do not forget to tell the people close to you, how much you love them!

With love to you and thank you for ALL your faves and comments, M, (* _ *)

WHAT PART of DO NOT USE is it that you DO NOT UNDERSTAND?

I find my images on numerous blogs and websites EVERY DAY, without my permission!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Why not view the set as a slide-show?

Also I often upload more than one image at the same time, I see a tendency to only view the last uploaded...
