Suppletion of 5,5 million cubic meters of sand – Coastal defense maintenance

The Netherlands, Katwijk – February 2023

The weekly theme for LAPC #237 is ‘bringing softness’. Softness can be achieved in processing a sharp photo. Or just use zoom on an iPhone and do not keep it still while pressing the shutter. It gives the softness that makes this beach view interesting.

Right now the coast at Katwijk is work in progress. Sand is dredged out of the sea, pressed through tubes and added just before the beach under the water. 5,5 cubic meters of sand. Making it safe again and compliant to standards. As always Rijkswaterstaat does an amazing job.

    This is just beautiful… I love the calmness and tranquility of the whole shot. I could easily spend day after day… gazing out at that sea xx

        A great way to create softness.. I will have to try that.. Mind you, I’m a little bit heavy handed when it comes to phones and taking pictures xx
