2018-07-22   RIVER EEM NEAR AMERSFOORT

By | 2018-07-22T16:41:16+00:00 July 22nd, 2018|Netherlands|

A typical representation of the Netherlands, green and lush grass, flat landscape and rivers which bring the water for agriculture. River Eem runs through the Eem valley and is emptying in Amersfoort. Be careful with the bridges and locks, if you are driving a boat. Sometimes they are so low that you have to duck your head or call a lock keeper to open the bridge for you. Once it was only a few centimeters which prevented our boat roof from scratching, I was breathing deeply and thanked God afterward.

2018-03-25   WINDMILLS NORTHERN NETHERLANDS

By | 2018-03-25T13:23:47+00:00 March 25th, 2018|Netherlands|

I saw that windmill park near Harderwijk at the Veluwermeer. The view with the dozens of windmills placed near the sea was an overwhelming impression. A surreal landscape photo.

2017-07-03  SHEEP IN THE NETHERLANDS

The Netherlands, that low country with endless fields of green grass, a paradise for sheep and cows. On my way to Amersfoort, I took some shots of these typical landscapes. Nearly every photo of this series included sheep or cows  🙂 A lovely scene.

2017-01-26 GREEN GRASS AND COWS IN THE NETHERLANDS

By | 2017-01-26T21:16:26+00:00 January 26th, 2017|Netherlands|

I never saw a country which is so heavily flat as the Netherlands. I was driving on a house boat on the river Eem and took photos left and right and this photo is representative for most of the landscape around the river. No wonder that this is the country of Gouda, Edam, Beemster …  🙂  with all that fresh grass and healthy cows. 🙂

2016-08-14 NIGHTLY WALK IN AMERSFOORT

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:25+00:00 August 14th, 2016|Netherlands|

It’s not only Amsterdam were bikes are popular, they are popular in Amersfoort too. So we explored this city mostly by bike. In the night we placed them on a safe place and did a walking tour where we observed that also some canals trench this town.

2016-07-11 NETHERLANDS AND THE WINDMILLS II

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:27+00:00 July 11th, 2016|Netherlands|

The twilight at Veluwemeer shows you the sea, sinking sun with blue sky and some slow turning windmills and silence except a bit noise from some boats which come along the sea lanes. For a house boat captain, the evening is the time to look after a parking slot in one of the harbors at Harderwijk or Elburg to get a place to anchor the boat and prepare for the night.

2016-06-10 WINDMILLS ON THE SEA

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:28+00:00 June 10th, 2016|Netherlands|

The northern bays of the Netherlands show windmills which give a bit surreal picture, where everything is very flat, the sea, the green grassland, the only elevations are the windmills.

Amersfoort is a Dutch city with all ingredients for a beautiful day. Some canals, city wall, old town, Mondriaan exhibition, shopping street, beer pub and some cool dining destinations. Also really nice alleys, as shown on the photo here.

2016-04-12 WASSERSTRASSE IN DEN NIEDERLANDEN

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:30+00:00 April 12th, 2016|Netherlands|

Wasserstrassen funktionieren wie Asphaltstrassen, es gibt Vorrangregeln, Ampeln und Querverkehr, der ist dann oft in Form von Brücken, die gehoben werden müssen, oder Schleusen die gesenkt werden. Bei den Brücken, die mit Ampeln bestückt sind hat man Glück, hier funktioniert dann alles elektronisch. Zeitweise stößt man auch auf Brücken, wo auf einem Schild nur eine Telefonnummer zu sehen ist und man dann den Schleusenwart anruft. Der kommt dann oft gemütlich per Fahrrad und hebt danach die Brücke. Diese Variante ist etwas zeitaufwändiger  🙂
