The former island, now peninsula Walcheren (Zeeland, The Netherlands) had in the past the nickname 'Garden of Holland'. Walcheren was inundated in 1944 (WW II) and flooded (by disaster) in 1953. Both events destroyed the picturesque character of Walcheren. Lots of effort has been spent to bring Walcheren back in its orignal state. Hope this series will show you that Walcheren got back some of its idyllic country roads and paths and its picturesque character again. The images are taken in different seasons. Hope you'll enjoy this series.

The shadows and the almost covered sky and the strong green of the trees make this a beautiful image - well done, Cornelius.

Love the way the trees hang over the road & bike path with the beautiful shades of green, green is my favorite colour. This would be another great scene to draw in water colours....you do fabulous work....thanks

Now this actually has a familiar look to it. Resembles an area that could be in Ohio. Another great shot, and I love the light and shadows, as well as the colors. Very nice, Cornelius.

I like the lines of that splitted way and the tones of the nature here, but would I be able to choose, which way to go?

I like the use of light C and it gives me the hope at the end of the tunnel feeling. Great colors and series.
