Photographer's Note

Last weekend + first two days of this week we in Holland (and in much of the Western Europe as well) had quite an exceptional weather, a real spring with the temperatures around +15C. Morning light was especially wonderful, I took this opportunity to make small photo-detours on my way to work to some typical old Dutch villages near Leiden. Here we are in one of them, Rijpwetering, and see the neogothic church built in 1860 reflected in the canal. Not much to add really, a typical Dutch village scene but I can assure you that starting from yesterday it all looks completely different as we are back to the typical Dutch winter weather with thick fog covering everything...

Interestingly, several bridges you see here in the perspective are all private bridges, belonging to the houses to which they lead from the main road across the canal, this is also very typical for canalside Dutch villages.
