We celebrated my mothers 70th birthday in October of this year. For that occasion, me and my two sisters got together to eat and enjoy a walk in nature. We chose the town Wortel as our getaway. It is a funny name. It means carrot or root in Dutch. 

Wortel is a village in the Belgian municipality of Hoogstraten and was established in the early 19th century by the Society of Benevolence as a farming colony for the able-bodied working poor. It was meant to provide employment during a time when poverty rates were very high in the Low Countries. The landscapes are very interesting, carved by humans ... long straight lanes with very symmetrical plans.

Here is a first version of an image I took of that Autumn walk, a memory of a family moment.
