Near the end of WWII this rowing boat was used to ferry people across the river to the liberated southern part of The Netherlands. Between the willows and the streams there were plenty of hiding places.

Superb! I love this kind of photography. You had a good subject and got a very good photo.

Congrats.

Lovely, and enhanced by the story. I like the repeated curves in the branches, boat and leaves.

I've just read 'The grey goose of Arnhem' by Leo Heaps, with a chapter about the boatmen who helped escapees cross the Biesbosch to freedom, so it's amazing this could be one of the boats written about.

Very nice, the boat seems already to be part of the surroundings, after all this time.

I think this would look better in B&W, and I'd want to try and pull some of the detail out of the shadows in the lower left.  Great potential though!

Thanks guys. Considering that this image has been a reject for almost half a year, I am very happy with all of your reactions.
I tried B&W conversions but did not succeed yet in creating a similar mood.
