The first days of spring are a great time to escape from the city for a while.
A relaxed Sunday shot from one of the bends in the river Nete, up in the countryside north-east from Antwerp. Being in Belgium, there's a fine bar & restaurant just behind where I was standing here. Its name 'De Beemden' refers to its location just next to the river.
Nijlen is a community in the province of Antwerp, not that far from Lier either. It is located in the countryside where the two Nete rivers (the great and the small one) converge. The locals are quite friendly.

Un superbe paysage pour un petit tour à vélo.
La courbe est intéressante et crée un élément harmonieux.

a wonderful view of the curve of the river, the landscape awakening after a long winter. The curves of the banks, road and row of trees are delightful and make an elegant composition. There's great clarity and lighting and the atmosphere is peaceful and lovely. I like very much the colours and contrasts. Thank you!
All the best,

Good Pov. It’s simple but very effective to attract the viewer to the leading river. Colours are interesting. A great shot of this place.
Good work! Regards,
