The 'Dead - Tree - Landscape'
Photo taken at Le Noir Flohay (Hoge Venen, Ardennes), an hour's walk from Baraque Michel. Le Noir Flohay is an area where a large part of the pine trees were burned in 2011 due to drought. It has resulted in a beautiful area where, partly due to the combination with the snow and fog, there is a desolate but also serene atmosphere. The skeletons of the trees sometimes have very beautiful shapes. I kept taking pictures! 

The Lentloper, Nijmegen
The Lentloper is a traffic bridge over the Spiegelwaal between Lent and the city island. It is one of the five bridges over the Waal and the Spiegelwaal.
The Spiegelwaal is a side channel of approximately 4 kilometers in the Waal near Nijmegen. The channel was constructed between 2013 and 2015 as part of the national flood protection program Room for the River. This program came about after the floods in 1993 and 1995. The channel must increase the capacity in the bend of the Waal near Nijmegen and lower the water level so that more water can be collected at high tide

Python Moves

Legend has it that they are trolls who were surprised by the first rays of the sun as they tried to pull a ship ashore.
