Church and Cows

The Netherlands, Rijnsaterwoude – September 2020

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #115 is ‘Inspiration’.

The Dutch landscape is a continuous source of inspiration. Sometimes in a wide view, sometimes in a close up to pick up some details. A church on a dyke, cows in the polder.

Polder

The Netherlands, Rijnsaterwoude – June 2020

The theme for the weekly Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #99 is ‘old and new’.

A polder is a piece of land below the surrounding water level. It is artificial because it is created by man. Dykes are build to make it dry and keep the water out, and canals are made to pump water out, dumping it in canals that eventually bring it back to sea. In the background you see a dyke: behind the dyke is water of a lake. If the dyke was not there you would look at the lake :-). So this is old and new land.

Polder view

The Netherlands, Warmond – August 2019

The theme for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #62 is ‘silhouettes’.
Instead of ‘hard’ silhouettes I find it sometimes more pleasing to show some details in the darker parts.
The darker area’s create a nice frame for the view on the polder and meadows following the canal.
