Plot In The Mist

This tranquil, atmospheric scene is our plot in the village Tesselaarsdal. Our small cottage is on the left, a wood cabin on the right, and another wood cabin barely visible in the mist. A flood plain (centre) runs through the middle of the plot, which makes it of little utility -- yet it is unique for the small poplar forest, and a perennial river off the photo to the right.  The plot extends to the edge of the trees in the background, but behind the camera narrows almost to a point.  OBSERVATION: In 2013, the biggest flood in living memory rose as high as the buildings right and left. The cabin in the background took a serious hit.
