Photographer's Note

Although you would not think this is the Leopoldskanaal, judging from many other pictures on Trekearth, it actually is. The rows of trees however are missing. This picture of the canal is taken very close to its "source" near Boekhoute. Completely treeless here, the canal becomes takes its famous appearance further downstream in Watervliet, where these impressive trees arise on its shores.

The picture was taken last year in June during a bike trip in our beautiful region, the Eastflemish polders. The place is very peaceful, can be harsh and cold in winter, but warm and green in summer (although luckily the sea breeze is always blowing for refreshment). The Leopoldscanal was dug in the 19th Century in order to take away the excess water of the Belgian polders; it runs from Boekhoute to Heist.
