A land of polders and rivers – Painting a Dutch landscape

During a train ride a few years ago, I drove through a landscape that is typical Dutch: ditches cut through green pastures, roads with long rows of trees and occasionally a church tower of a village. Unfortunately, there are fewer and fewer such landscapes in the west of the Netherlands: motorways and urban expansions displace the beautiful polder landscape…

‘Painting a Dutch landscape’ is a photo in the series ‘A land of polders and rivers’, part of the gallery ‘Untouched land‘.

  1. Jammer dat deze prachtige landschappen verdwijnen. Hoewel….. in Nederland zijn er nog veel meer te bespeuren dan in België, er is meer natuurruimte.

  2. Ik begrijp niet hoe mijn zinnen hier boven zo vervormd staan? En dit vroeg op de morgen:)
    Hier dus de betere versie, beetje beschaamd wel.
