Flanders

I often go dancing on the continent - or, to be more precise, in a small town near the German border in Holland. I drive - and the motorway takes me through Flanders. I still find it hard to comprehend how anything can be as flat. I find the flatness difficult, but driving back from a lovely weekend of tangoing I often also find it peaceful and somewhat charming:



Back to Aileni's Monochrome Maniacs for some spiffing monochromes.

Oddly it reminds me of my square-bashing days... October/November.

Oh my, beautiful. The fog makes it so mysterious.

Fog is always a good subject

That is a very peaceful and beautiful scene.

Beautiful atmospheric picture!

Robin said...

The fog lends a great otherworldly feel to the scene.

LoL..
My computer screen stands right to my TV, so I'm pretty much "multi-tasking" most of the time, throwing glances once in a while towards my TV set.
At this moment, I'm watching "Sleepy Hollow" movie and your photo is just as if it was taken from that movie !

Fog adds a kind of mystic power, don't you think...lovely.

Liz said...

It's beautiful ... but I would miss hills too.

I meant to say: you dance?

Oh, that is just breathtaking.

I have a friend who is from England (Birmingham) and has been in Australia 2 years now. She seems to have an aversion to flat countryside as well. She tells me that England is quite hilly.

Thanks for visiting my blog by the way!

Guess you've never been to Kansas, then! That's why I enjoy the NZ beaches and mountains so much.

Lovely, foggy, and serene.

I just wanted to thank you so much for your comments on my blog (I've already commented on this beautiful picture, but I had to run in here and say thank you anyway;). I now check the original photo of my dandelion, and there was no shadow... so I actually do not know what I've done. Thank you, anyway.

This is nice. I've always like the way mist, haze and fog makes things look so different. I just don't like being in it. :-)

The fog really sets the mood!
