Autumn display in Steendam

A beautiful day today, with clouds, sunlight and trees in the most fantastic colours. In the morning I took Inge and Ellis to their violin lessons and orchestra rehearsal. After that, we went shopping for Halloween outfits (Inge and Ellis are having a Halloween party in school on Monday) and I went shopping for some new clothes as well.

When I returned home, a plan started forming in my head... First I would drive along one of the canals to capture the autumn colours. Then I would drive to lake Schildmeer for the sunset and possibly some long exposures after sunset. And that's exactly what I did. I arrived at lake Schildmeer a bit early and wandered around somewhat. That's when I discovered the scene you are looking at. The other parts of the plan worked out as well; see the extra photos. A great day!
