Wildrijk Netherlands

This was a nice surprise. As I've concluded some shots at sunset earlier, the trip back home felt rather satisfactory. My coastal home is right at the top-end of the Netherlands, so there really is one main road that leads to it. To combat the monotony of driving the same road as I always would, forgetting all about the amazing sunset from before, I decided to steer clear of the main road.

On one of these backroads, I noticed that the foliage started to grow thicker as the night drew in. Then this huge, 300 year old beech tree loomed over the road.

To my surprise there were still bluebells about amongst these grand trees. Of course there was an image in here somewhere. But I don't like to photograph the forest, since most of the images I take there look cluttered and distracting.

Thanks for looking.
Thank you very much for your suggested change. We will check it as soon as possible and update this spot.

Travel information

here wasn't a parking space, but there were also no other cars to be seen. I figured to park beside the road and head into this small forest I had never heard of before... Some adventure!
