[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken at the same location as Fun with Nature somewhere in Twente near Rijsen. If I would go back to this location right now, the color would be white. The farm in the back is a typical Twentse style farm.

For the ones who want to know these are:
Taraxacum officinalis English: Dandelion, German: L÷wenzahn, French: Pissenlit, Spanish: Diente de leon, Dutch: Paardenbloemen, Flemish: piesseblommen, Vietnames: Bồ C˘ng Anh (the latter two are added by Magda and Hien)

hi niek!
great landscape photo, very colorist.
i like it.

Hallo Niek.
Mooie opname en een zeer goede compositie. De boederijen van dat type heb ik vaak gezien tijdens een van mijn vele wandelingen. Ze zijn altijd erg mooi en goed onderhouden.
Groet Frans

A lovely image that seems that would be taken from a Monet's picture.

The green and yellow mix, the trees, the houses, all is wonderfull.


great landscape photo and good capture
vibrant colors and excellent composition.

Hi Niek,
You make them look so beautiful here. I love this composition. You used a great angle to accent all that vivid yellow. If I saw all those weeds in my yard I would faint.

Hi Niek,
Dandelions seem to be popular, no wonder since they are sooo bright and shiny when they are at their best... like here!
Very pleasant composition, with the farm in the background...

Tukkerland met mooie paardenbloemen wat het landschap elk voorjaar weer een frisse kleur geeft. Rijssen is een mooie omgeving zoals vele plekken in Twente ;)

Excellent photo composition and sharpness is well done, one thing that I would do next time is have the camera closer to the ground to give a different perspective

Nice composition Niek, there is a lot of "pissenlit" here too. Very nicely done, thanks.


Lovely composition, Niek.
great use of the foreground, here, and the placement of the houses, etc.
Just seems to be lacking a little sharpness (which might be to do with uploading, I suppose), and the clouds look a little burnt out.
Still very nice, though.

Very good Spring time shot. colourful and well composed.
