Holland - Province Groningen - Ter Apelkanaal
Potato fields in former Peat Colony

Everywhere in this neighbourhood you will find roads and canals straight as can be. They came into existence because the top layer of the soil, existing of peat, was taken away because it could be used as a cheap means of heating. Since large quantities of the material were involved it was transported mainly by water. Alongside the canals also roads were made.

Thanks Marijke! Just wait until you move to your country house and start to live close by! It will then stop to be a quiet place! :) Nevertheless and in spite of that I can come too and still make another very placid and nice b&w picture... And when you look at it, you will never guess how noisy three women can be talking almost through one another!
