Artwork Description

One of the most striking sights in the countryside of my native Holland, are the heather fields, which are very abundant. This location is a favourite hiking area in the region of Gelderland, on the Elburg Way road, near my hometown. Many native Dutch people spend their Sunday afternoons taking in the sun and nature, either hiking on foot, or riding their bicycles along the paths in the fields. Local Hollanders consider this to be the most beautiful area of Holland. Again, a good opportunity to employ the view camera format for maximum detail.
