* Huisje Boompje Bootje *
Translated from Dutch:

Little: House Trees and Boat

Has to do with a 'proverb in Dutch:
Huisje -boompje-beestje to underline a safe and solid sort of mariage state of two persons sharing all :-)

Photo made last Saturday, in the subburb Loosduinen-Willem 3 Straat .
(Close to one of my Salons)

Thanks for looking over my shoulder Folks

Well look at that! f I had been a little slower or you a little faster, we'd have been next door to each other in the gallery!
I love the depth of colour in the reflections in the water -- superb autumnal capture!
P.S.: Opinions are like belly buttons; everybody has one!

Hello John, I like this fall image from the Netherlands. The leaning trees with the reflection is a highlight as well as the natural looking colors. This year's autumn where I live is rather muted because of drought. Best regards, Danilo

Hi John

Fantastic reflections & symmetry from the 3 trees. Good Autumn foliage colours of gold, nicely contraSting against the reflected blue skylight in the water. Tfs!

hello! amazing trees!wonderful capture! TFS

There is something different in this photo. ¿The position of the trees? ¿The place where you took it from? Beautiful colors and well balanced as the darker area is larger that the light area of the top. TFS

Maria Lorena

Ahhh, those yellow leaves are SO beautiful! What a gorgeous scene here Johnny! Nice details, excellent POV!

Hi John,
This is a beautiful photo. Colorful, warm and sharp image. The angle of trees and their reflections gives much dynamism. Very nice view of autumn. Bravo! Annie

Hey John !
Excellent picture here. I'm feeling the thing with the three trees.. and their stunning sharp reflections in the water.
Great colours too ! Well done and best regards, Daniel

Hi bro, this is a fine autumn scene with the 3 trees all bending over the water.
Nice boats and reflections.

Well spotted.

Take care, sis :)

Tja John
Was standing there next to you, before we went to Kijkduin, I was to lazy to get my camera from the car and that I regret.
This is one of your 50 best!

John wat mooi.
I agree that this is one of the high ranked photo's in your map. The colours are outstanding and it gives such a clean look. Our waters poluted? Show them this photo :-)

Heerlijk John,
Dus helaas geen beestje/wolfje on show, but I have to say that a boat in front of your house really is something else.
Lovely warm atmosphere - no doubt the best moment of the year to make this picture.

Hi Great shot John, good light gives a superb reflection, you have done well. TFS.

Hi John,

Het is gewoon een plaatje!! En een hele grappige title by the way. Zo'n spreekwoord verliest toch kracht als het vertaald wordt. Ik probeer mijn Engelstalige vriendin ook vaak Nederlandse (vertaalde) spreekwoorden te leren en die slaan na vertaling vaak nergens meer op hahaha.
Heel mooi, de scherpte, het geel met rood van de boot en het dak. Combineert heel mooi en dan die reflectie...

Groet! Dennis

Wow, what a beautiful shot John,
Composition properties are so magnificent,
colors and contrast everything is so lovely is all i can say
- Vincent.

Hi John,
Interesting angled trees! Could they have been forced by man to grow with that angle?!
Beautiful colors and reflections.
TFS this lovely view.

Hello John!

Very nice shot! Good POV and beautiful autumn colours! TFS.
I like its clearness and the reflection. But, imho, you shouldn't crop trees' top, so as your composition looks complete!
