Photographer's Note

The last warm days are almost over, I saw this lovely small place between Damme and Moerkerke on 5 mile of Bruges.
This is a beautiful environment also peaceful; the cows graze here in one of the best meadows of the region. The yellow fields are mustard seed

This picture I have cropped to a better composition, above and under a frame create.

Many thanks to all the members those a brought a visit to my previous picture.

I hope you enjoy it.

History of Damme and environment.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

In the 13th century Damme was the port for Bruges, to which it is linked by the long, straight, treelined and picturesque Damse Vaart, which continues across the Dutch border to Sluis and the Zwin. The line of the town's star-shaped fortifications can still be traced by lines of tall poplar trees and in places by a moat. It was the site of the Battle of Damme, fought on 30 and 31 May 1213.

Today it is a popular venue for eating out, and a destination for boat trips. Damme is since a few years also known as a book town, with numerous bookshops and regular book fairs.

Famous inhabitants were Jacob van Maerlant, medieval poet, the town clerk of Damme until his death in around 1300, and Karel Verleye, co-founder of the Bruges College of Europe, who died in Damme in 2002.
