Fairy Tale Fall

I was in the AWD`(Amsterdamse Waterleiding Duinen) last week. I just love that area.


Originally meant as a basin to collect drinking water for the big cities surrounding it, it is riddled with canals, small forests and lots of sand dunes.

It is beautiful in every season but autumn is my favorite.


The area is inhabited by many Fallow Deer. (too many, some people think). As of November large numbers of them will be shot to bring the numbers down.


I was in the area at sunrise. As the sun rose, the fog started rising over the canals. And when there is a Fallow Deer jumping over that canal with the sun as back light, it really seems like it's part of a fairy tale.
