Walking around the lovely little town,Spaarndam,not far from haarlem.
The weather was inpredictable and cloudy and I was giving up all hope,until the low sun came from behind a thick layer of clouds.
For a moment the Marina was in full fire,the typical light of the Dutch golden age I love so much!

Hoi Jan,
Dat noem ik geluk hebben!
Heel wisselend weertje vandaag; ook bij ons.
Maar àls die laagstaande zon dan doorkomt dan heb je prachtig licht.
Daar heb je op een schitterende manier van geprofiteerd: heel mooie warme kleuren, de fraaie lucht erboven en de reflecies in het water..... een juwééltje!

Groet uit Renesse,

hi jan, amazing light and colors with great details , nice shot man!

Hello Jan,
this charming landscape seems a picture, with these smooth & warm colors.
Ciao, Elena

hi Jan

I think Dutch landscape of flat land and rivers/canals are also very photogenic sceneries, like the windmills, boats, marinas and so characteristic of your country's features.

This is a good example of Dutch scene that is very attractive in your well composed POV to show the masts and reflection on water of the boats and buildings. Good work.

tfs, bill
