Spring signs are everywhere! – VII
Gouda, my home-town, is located in a wetland area. It’s all about 6 meters below sea level ….! Therefore, there are many ditches in the area, which should keep the land dry. As the picture shows, thereby a kind of islands have been formed, connected by bridges.
The willow trees are pollarded, the fruit trees are almost blooming, the sheep got lambs and the Meerkoet (Coot) has its nest…

Shot taken at the ‘Bloemendaalseweg’. It’s my 7th image from the series that was taken during my walk along the Bloemendaalseweg to the center of the city.*_ The ‘Bloemendaalseweg’ used to be a road through the polders, lined with a wide ditch, and farms, but it is now running through Gouda, surrounded by new housing.

WELCOME!
Thank you for making the effort to take a look at my photos. Your visit is very much appreciated!
Photography is my passion since my youth and I never go out without my camera.
I found red-bubble in Spring 2009 and I’m glad I did. It’s a very inspiring and fascinating place to be, in more ways than one.
A heartfelt thanks to you all for the many kind words and wonderful compliments you gave me. I look forward viewing your world and sharing mine.
Have a wonderful day! Take care!

    Prachtig Hans, dat reflecterend water. Iemand heeft me ooit verteld dat Gouda langzaam in de modder wegzakt, maar hier zie je dat nog niet.
    Cheers, Henk

  • Dank je Henk! en ook voor de fave!
    Wij zitten denk ik net op een zandplaat, maar bij ons in de buurt moeten de mensen inderdaad regelmatig hun tuin met een halve meter of meer ophogen…..
    Groeten en fijne avond!
    Hans.
