Photographer's Note

I want thanks to all members for the a lot reaction and advices on my first portrait picture.

Thursday August 23 I must take the pictures of the sailships, but through the rain and the fog, I could never see the sail ship.
I've than a other pictures take, I found this image very nice through the perspective.

History of Zeeland:
Zeeland, also called Zealand in English, is a province of the Netherlands. The province, located in the south-west of the country, consists of a number of islands (hence its name, meaning "sea-land", although the origin could also be from "Suaven"-land, a Germanic tribe) and a strip bordering Belgium. Its capital is Middelburg. Its population is about 380,000 and its area is about 2930 km², of which almost 1140 km² is water. Large parts of Zeeland are below sea level. The last great flooding of the area was in 1953. Tourism is an important economic activity. Its sunny beaches make it a popular holiday destination in the summer. Most tourists are Germans. In some areas, the population quadruples in the summer. The coat of arms of Zeeland shows a lion half-emerged from water, and the text "luctor et emergo" (Latin for "I struggle and I emerge").

I hope you like it.
