Meiboom clouds above the Lake
The second picture out of the old series
These picture has been taken during a visit to these lovely area.
This is the Lake of the "Meiboom" fishing club to Sijsele on 6 km of Bruges
These nice lake is made through sand winning for car route E40 between Ostend and Brussels 40 year ago.
In totally are two nice places, where every week during the fishing season become competitions or simple an afternoon fishing with the family.
I feel me excellent on these place, but I am no fisherman, alone my camera looking to birds or other lovely images.
On these club can drinking a cup of coffee or maybe a beer.

Une composition de grande beauté.

Superb moment of the day with that charming sunlight over the canal scene. Well taken, lovely atmosphere.
emka (106772) 2016-01-18 0:24
This is fantastic. The clouds are marvelous, the reflections in the small lake, the sun behind the bare trees, all elements create fabulous atmosphere. Awesome picture.
WArm regards Malgo
holmertz (59142) 2016-01-18 0:42
The scenery is beautiful with the trees lining the shores of the lake, but especially this is a photo with a fantastic light and colours and very attractively shaped clouds that are perfectly reflected in the water.
danos (103144) 2016-01-18 0:43
nice the view of this section of the lake Sijsele with the sunset colours and the white and puffy clouds to make the scenery even more effective and unique.Excellent presentation.
snunney (106533) 2016-01-18 1:42
The sky and the light it engenders are both absolutely delightful. A beautiful winter landscape perfectly captured.
mesutilgim (97484) 2016-01-18 3:04
Hello dear John,
The famous painters of your country would be jelious if they could be able to see this wonderfull capture !

Good Morning John,
What a beautiful picture to greet TE on a Monday morning!
It is like a painting!
The aspect is lovely, with good leads and features to create an excellent sense of depth.
The light is amazing and so beautifully balanced between the setting sun and the light that it projects across the canal.
Then, there is this magnificent sky, given excellent prominence.
The individual aspects are interesting and each combines perfectly to make this a wonderful whole!!
Thank you for sharing this,
carper (96) 2016-01-18 4:03
heel gaaf john mooie plaat fraaie lucht kleuren en wat niet meer.
prachtige balans, mooi man.
pierrefonds (71137) 2016-01-18 4:41
I like the reflections, they are assets to the composition. The length of the lake is givng depth to the scene. The point of view is showing the details of the reflections and of the sky. Well done, have a nice day.
Fis2 (106408) 2016-01-18 6:32
Excellent composition and colors.
Very impressive reflection!
Sergiom (88317) 2016-01-18 6:53
Quelle belle photo. Le spectacle des dernières heures de la journée est spectaculaire surtout lorsque on peut voir les beautés en double à cause des reflets parfait dans les eaux miroirs.Quel ciel.
besnard (57228) 2016-01-18 7:01
Une magnifique photo. Des couleurs incroyables tant dans le ciel que sur l'eau. Une véritable peinture.
Bravo et bonne journée.
PaulVDV (32641) 2016-01-18 8:11
Dit is een fantastisch landschap waarbij zowel het water als de lucht een heel belangrijke rol spelen.
Ergens lijkt het wat op een schilderij of op een fantasiewereld ergens ver weg. Maar de foto werd op slechts 6 km. van Brugge genomen.
Prachtig met de bomen die het water langs drie zijden omzomen en met de zon die door de bladerloze takken schijnt.
Uiteraard is dat wolkendek magnifiek en wordt het ook nog mooi weerspiegeld in het water.
Vreemd dat je deze foto zo lang verborgen hield.
Vele groeten, Paul
GyurMaster (7301) 2016-01-18 8:49
It has a HDR like feel, however it works well here. I particularly like the sun and the contre-jour composition.
rychem (42630) 2016-01-18 8:53
Beautiful photo with fantastic light and attractive sky, the reflections are perfect, we can see not only the sky but also the reflections of trees, bravo Ryszard

sabermonajati (11387) 2016-01-18 10:25
wonderful view from sunset and cloudy sky and reflect of them in water you captured.
cornejo (46782) 2016-01-18 10:30
Hello John, excellent photography of this pretty and interesting composition with the beautiful lake, very well captured in this beautiful image with good sharpness, nice light, color and quality. Excellent and interesting work well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Best wishes from the south of Spain.
tyro (26142) 2016-01-18 11:42
A magnificent photograph with the most gorgeous light and colours and what a glorious sky! The reflections of the sky and clouds in the calm water of the lake are stunning. A very fine composition and I especially like the way the low sun shines through the bare trees on the right.
And, as always, a fascinating note.
ourania (51079) 2016-01-18 13:02
this is an exceptional picture that fills our eyes with wonder. The landscape's formation is simple but you captured a superb reflection and used the perspectives very aptly in order to fill the frame and make the view look so impressive. I like the suggestive dynamism of the scene and the strong but moody colours. The sun beeming through the silhouetted trees makes a captivating highlight. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,
COSTANTINO (69660) 2016-01-18 13:05

Gigidusud (21247) 2016-01-18 14:05
Beautiful landscape that is reflected in the lake. The cloudy sky brings great depth to the image and the sun's rays warm the atmosphere. Very nice photo, I love!
Thanks for sharing.
PiotrF (22898) 2016-01-18 14:40
Colorful picture with interesting clouds and nice composition. I like here saturated colours, nice reflections in the water and very good POV. Innteresting and detailed notes. Good work
berek (50508) 2016-01-18 20:45
Dear John ,
You make the grandiose through this magnificent composition. impressive reflections with magnificant clouds. take care.
All the best.
ChrisJ (117855) 2016-01-18 21:53
You've used the trees well as a natural filter to block out unwanted oe and also get the star effect. Nice symmetrical reflections with good color, sharpness and saturation. Tfs!
shreya2000 (2799) 2016-01-18 22:25
Dear John Sir,
Excellent image. I can certainly hang this picture on my wall.
Extraordinary depth, The sun looking behind the trees is superb. The tree line in left is very very good. Sky and cloud formation is superb. Congratulations for such a beauty by you.

ikeharel (78317) 2016-01-19 4:38
A painter like Pieter Bruegel would love this blue and golden colors onto the sky, John, and truly this marvelous lake scenery looks as natur's-painted scene.
Special light conditions and well chosen POV allow this beautiful impression.
Silvio1953 (152991) 2016-01-19 8:31
Ciao John, really a fantastic landscape with fascinating reflectioons, superb sky, wonderful warm colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
frunchy (1800) 2016-01-19 11:11
fascinating shot and very beautiful landscape! From the colors i thought it was HDR, maybe it is. The sky is marvellous as well as the contrast in the clouds!
Noel_Byrne (33634) 2016-01-19 12:32
Wow! This is a spectacular scene, and there is little I can say in the face of such an awesome sight. Spectacular photo sir!
npecanhuk (78549) 2016-01-19 14:09
Very beautiful reflections!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, black borders, contrasts, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
I love that starry-like sun as well!!!!
TFS - congrats,

Didi (60590) 2016-01-20 9:28
Bonjour mon ami
Ambiance calme et paisible loin des bruits de la ville
Un joli soft contre-jour
Intéressante prise de vue à faible hauteur du sol
Tue (43440) 2016-01-20 11:15
Wat een schitterend gezicht op het rimpelloze water dat de prachtige wolkenlucht op deze winterochtend zo mooi weerspiegelt. The zon schijnt ook prachtig door de bomen. Heel mooi werk.
dekanski (6014) 2016-01-20 13:27
Wonderful !!! Almost like a painting! Technically perfect, beautiful colors!
jmdias (68677) 2016-01-21 0:11
magnific these clouds formations and the golden light you got here. perfect framing using well the reflections of these trees. the image remember me the mood of the paintings created by turner.
Nicou (151064) 2016-01-21 3:37
Un ciel plafond quelle vue quelle compo superbe compo quel reflet et vue et cette lignée d'arbres et ce soleil qui filtre grandiose ensemble et tonalité superbe paysage.
Bravo et amitié
abmdsudi (57720) 2016-01-21 5:42
Nature wonder unfolds before your eyes.. I adore a whole lot of this appealing shot which sets of the tranquil picture so handsomely and your best pp has definitely enhanced the image really well. That starburst effect is an icing on the roll! Top notch, Congrats
halikarnas (8042) 2016-01-21 11:23
Bu ne güzellik!
Böyle bir fotoğraf çekmek demekki mümkün,siz başarmışsınız.
Bir ressam gözüyle baktığımda :Bu TABLO.
batalay (40385) 2016-01-21 13:17
Absolutely superb, a modern Flemish masterpiece! But, there is also here a Salvador Dali masterpiece in Surreal Art. The sun filtering through the branches along with its reflection in the water creates a magnificent double focal point on the right. Warm regards, John,
mcmtanyel (29044) 2016-01-21 20:56
This is an excellent application of HDR, it looks like a silk print.
Alco (7537) 2016-01-21 21:18
Superb picture of that lake. Very nice sunrays across the trees. Fantastic sky with nice reflections in the water. Very beautiful colors. Very well done. TFS.
adramad (49544) 2016-01-22 8:06
Magistral this composition, which attracts us like a magnet, to enjoy, with all the beauties of the picture shows, is a delightful landscape with tree lines and dramatic sky, as if that is not enough, you have a few reflections anthology and the sun shining in decline is the ultimate complement.
Very good brightness and sharpness, with beautiful colors.
Well seen and done better. I like it.
Have a good weekend.
Graal (103038) 2016-01-22 10:53
very nice landscape. I like the light and colors. Image is well composed. Fine pp and finally effect.
Have a nice evening.
carlo62 (54986) 2016-01-22 15:03
non c'è molto da dire su questa foto, le parole sono difficili da usare, meglio dedicarsi alla foto con lo sguardo.
Si rimane in silenzio e si osserva meravigliati.
Dimenticavo, in silenzio.
Buin (42506) 2016-01-23 8:53
This photo doesn't need much words. It's simply outstanding. A real joy to look at. This is photography at its best.
Greetings from wet and cold Westphalia!
janneman (3068) 2016-01-25 10:33
Mooie foto met een fraai perspectief. De wolkenlucht versterkt dat nog eens.
adores (46363) 2016-01-25 15:30
This is a beautiful landscape and the photo is just great! I like the sun passing through the trees, the beautiful sky and reflection. Well managed light and good colours!
branley (3681) 2016-01-25 23:27
Beautiful my friend. The cloud formation, reflections and the setting sun behind the trees all combine to give us this wonderful image....
mkamionka (39943) 2016-01-26 3:19
lovely HDR work. The sky is fabulous and your processing has emphasized it even more, the sun adds a beautiful touch being partially hidden behind the trees and preserving a perfectly round star shape. The water is nicely framed on both sides with the trees.
Very well composed and a very impressive processing,
mjw364 (1466) 2016-01-28 4:23
What a fantastic image! I love the colours and the light and the starburst of the sun. Excellent!
clic (18496) 2016-01-29 13:43
As I told you earlier in one of my comments, I'm convinced the skies keep a close eye on you when you go out taking picture and consequently put on their nicest outfits for sublime takes!
Periko (6214) 2016-02-09 22:33
This photo is a masterpiece!
Not only the amazing sky is a great protagonist, but also the sharp waters and the leafless trees. All these elements make a nice composition.
iainsp (3298) 2016-12-23 0:26
One can see why the light attracted so many of the old-master painters to your part of the world. Stunning light, well managed to produce a very artistic shot. Good use of saturation to create an impressionistic effect. regards and thanks, Iain.
