Re: Veltwijck

Another few images that explore variations of the same view.

Again from a brisk wintery walk, this time almost in our own backyard.

This is Castle Veltwijck in Ekeren near Antwerp. It sits in a small park at the edge of a hidden nature reserve called "Oude Landen".

This small sanctuary sits squeezed between the harbour and large roads. Apart from the constant drone of traffic and high buildings sometimes visible through the trees, one could imagine being in an untouched or reclaimed corner of the world, with wet marshy grasslands and muddy forest (with the occasional destroyed building).

The fact that Scottish bovines roam freely (and friendly) through the reserve, helps create a wonderful atmosphere.

But that is in the nature reserve.

This is in the adjacent park (Iphone images once again):

Compositionwise i vote for the middle one. In the first one i think the tower is to much in the middle a bit to the right would have been more my taste. The last one doesn't give enough information of it's beautiful surroundings. The middle one is more classical but i like the symmetry.

Happy New Year!
