The village Hoog Soeren is entirely surrounded by the royal Houtvesterij. The area exists mainly of forest, with some large and smaller heathland fields (Asselsche Heide, Uddelsche Buurtveld, Hoog Soerensche Veld). The area is with exception of the boar-hunting season rather accessible. The royal Houtvesterij is part of the Kroondomein Het Loo. The largest part of the Houtvesterij, 6700 hectares, is property of queen Beatrix. This part is bought in the beginning of the 20th century by then queen Wilhelmina, who hereself inhabited Het Loo and spent much time in nature. One smaller part, 3000 hectares, are state field and fall under the service of the ministry of finances. This Southern part, with the Hoog Soerensche Bosschen and the Asselsche Heide, was bought in 1684 by Willem III.

Hi Paula.
You have shared very nice view, which is pictured with great love. I like your low POV, excellent sharpness of the image, beautiful and very impressive yellow colour tone. Composition of he shot is very nice too. May be only blur tone is over-modest.
My compliments and TFS.

Hola Paula.- Bella postal de este hermoso "Pastizal". Muy agradables colores y ademas muy naturales. Luis52.

Hi Paula,
Very beautiful landscape picture. Great colors. Well composed.
Excellent shot.

The golden foreground grasses are lovely here. There is a bit of noise in the sky that could probably be remedied in post processing. I long the long vista.

Hi Paula,
This is a lovely landscape!
It reminds me some paintures of Van Gogh and their workers.
I like a lot the light of this shot, and the golden tones got on it.
Well composed and presented also.
Congratulations, thanks for share and kind regards,

Bonjour Paula
C'est plaisant de regarder une autre belle prise de vue d'un autre merveilleux paysage . Une belle composition éclatante de couleurs.

Bravo et merci....JP
Les sourires demain

Nice warm shot, has a good feel to it, well taken.


Hoi Paula,
Een heerlijke foto van een prachtig stukje Nederland. Je lage POV werkt perfect en de grassprieten geven de foto een mooi speels karakter. Kleuren en licht zijn echt super.

Ha Paula,

Schitterend landschap
perfecte compo, licht en scherpte/diepte
mooie heldere lucht
goede informatieve note

Hello Paula,
I enjoyed reading your note about this place. This is well done with good exposure, POV, composition and lightning. I just wonder why you used the 1/500 shutter speed. I like those natural colors. As Karan said, this is simple but very nice. Thanks,
