Photographer's Note

I am still in recovery after my accident, I can not make new pictures, I have different picture in my archive.
Thank you very much all the people that sent a mail or a reaction on TE.

This is the thrid picture out of the winter serie with skaters.

History of the place of the picture:
Although Hoeke doesn't have many inhabitants nowadays, it used to be a genuine town with town privileges, a town hall and a port. This little town on the Zwin estuary was founded in the 13th century by traders from Hamburg, Lübeck and Bremen. The church was built in in the 13th century and until that time, Hoeke depended on the church of Oostkerke (as were several other settlements in the region). This place had the importance of a little harbour and was very prosperous in the 14th and 15th century and had a market for cereals and salted fish. When the period of prosperity came to its end, the small town of Hoeke merged with Monnikenrede and Damme in 1594.

I hope you like it.
