Nijenbeek, Netherlands by Peter Bergen Henegouwen

Even within the nature reserves in The Netherlands it is quite hard to make photos without any human influence visible. Sometimes however this influence becomes the landscape. This is the remains of castle De Nijenbeek which goes back to the 13th century. Damaged in WWII and recently (2015) consolidated. Admittance to the castle and surroundings is restricted. The land is not open to the public and is kept as a nature reserve (I remained behind the fence!). When I decided on the picture, I knew I had to make it sepia. Except for the unnatural clouds (Netherlands) I like to think it is a scene of times past.
