Again a portrait of me, a lot members think that I alone take landscape, the last time, I try more portraits, I love portraits, I hope that you also can enjoy.

I took these picture during a old market with old occupations, the national dress is a nice example how the people in the old time.

This is a national dress here out of the region, Eede a small village in Netherland on the Belgian Border.

History of Zeeland:
Today the high dikes and heavy dams make sure that Zeeland is completely secure.
The creeks and weirs that appear in the countryside from time to time are a living reminder of old breaks in the defenses.
In Zeeland you find, because of the battle against the water, a very changeable landscape. The straight lines of the polders on Schouwen show you different Zeeland to the winding dikes in the old polders in the Zak van Zuid-Beveland.
This charming area is part of the National Landschap Zuidwest Nederland. Walcheren and the western part of Zeeuws-Vlaanderen also come into this category.
As you see there is so much to enjoy in Zeeland. By bike, on horseback, horse and cart, on foot or by boat there is so much to discover. You can wander over the flower dikes of Zuid-Beveland or go on a mountain bike rally through the forest Westenschouwen.
A good pair of wellington boots is needed for the trek through the mud in the Drowned Land of Saeftinghe (Verdronken Land van Saeftinghe). Be prepared it will not only be your boots that will get muddy.
Even the dunes hide a unique landscape behind the wide beaches. Dynamic, high powdery dunes change to impassable wet valleys, where families of deer roam freely. There are so many different routes to choose.
