I am a Dutch biologist who is currently living in Noord Brabant, the Netherlands, who has never, and will never be persuaded to get a Google+ account. I’ve been seriously wasting time on photography since 2004 and I love to travel around and take pictures of all the beautiful sites I see. These photographs have found their way to a number of places on the internet such as Wikimedia and the Belgian site I periodically upload relevant photographs to this site in the hope that they will serve some use in helping visitors learn a little more about the incredibly rich architectural/cultural heritage of the Netherlands, as well as all the places I visit during my travels. I also occasionally show interesting examples of threatened architectural heritage in Flanders before they perish.

Interessante e original a projeção da luz através do vitral. Saudações b-f-g

there is quite a bit unknown about the history about this building. it may have been a castle or perhaps just a fortified manor house. it /probably/ dates from the early 16th century.

it may have been originally bigger than this, but the only available drawing of the place, a 17th century engraving, show the building as having the same shape and size as now. the current gothicy lookstems from the 19th century. during that period the building may have been altered /or/ it may have been entirely rebuilt on medieval foundations.

Excellente picture and architecture, b-f-g. Greetings, Isabel November contest

dank voor het berichtje marianne, maar ik zie hier dat de foto gewoon juist is geplaatst. op het kaartje naast de foto zie ik gewoon wijk bij duurstede.

de site zelf geeft aan dat deze foto is genomen in rijswijk, maar die feature van de site heeft nooit goed gewerkt.

mischien is dit ook een foutje in de website.

Mooi licht. Spijtg dat je de fot niet recht zette (de linkerkant is bijna recht; het midden ,met de spits, zou loodrecht moeten zijn

Sehr Gut! Very nice shot. Greetings from Greece, KWOT.

welke resolutie heb je nodig? ik kan eventueel een grotere versie tijdelijk hier uploaden.
