Path by halkia

Path

11.43 am: More trees today. We went for a walk in Meijendel, a dune area near The Hague. It's a fairy-like place with a lot of odd-shaped trees.

I didn't take many photos as a) both girls demanded a lot of attention and had rather short fuses b) the weather was grey with low skies and dim light and all the shots came out somewhat wishy washy.

I liked the composition of this shot so I boosted the colours a bit. Oddly enough the grass turned an orange shade instead of the faded greens and browns of the original shot, while the other colours stayed more or less the same.
I love this shot. That path is so intriguing and the colours are great.

@simplycathi I agree it looks more like fall than winter. We had a lot of snow at the end of fall that stayed for over a month, and after it melted all the dead leaves were still there.

@elisabeth Thank you so much! I looked up this poem and it's absolutely beautiful.

@gijsje Het is er echt heel mooi! Misschien kunnen we er eens heen als jullie hier zijn.

@oneinodd @elsz That's what I love about this shot too. A lot of trees in this area have really irregular shapes like this :)

@araminta @5unflow3r @petra @deniseescovino @sparkle @jkovac @staciehighland Thank you all! Winding paths like this one really appeal to the imagination :)

I like the dreamy wishy-washyness of this.

Erg mooie foto! Lijkt ook zo lekker retro, met dat randje erom. En die plek is voor mij echt jeugdsentiment...

Mooi geworden met die kleuren! Mysterious, zonder paaltje kan het zo in een fantasyboek:-)

@flamez @lakruijf @shantwin Thank you :)

@smallenburg Dank je! Het is er erg mooi maar ik moest de foto wel wat aanpassen om dat ook over te brengen...

@caatjeg Ik zat nog te denken of ik het paaltje eraf zou snijden maar dat was de compositie niet ten goede gekomen.
