View on Deventer

Haerlerberg, Sallandse Heuvelrug, Overijssel, The Netherlands view map

There are several things I like here. The whole image is quite blurry, as if looking through one's eyelashes, but the image is still quite strong. I like the road, its curve and its sudden disappearance. You could compare it to life, but that's a bit cheap of course. I also like the texture of the heath, which is like a woolly mammoth. But most of all I like the way the long lens emphasises the height diffrences, which, being in the Netherlands is still very modest here: some 60 meters. On the horizon is home: Deventer, one hour of cycling to go. Well, that is if there are no intervening photo-opps.

Aside the perfectly balanced composition, this picture strikes me with its allegorical mood. v
