Sunset Canal

The Netherlands, Oegstgeest – April 2020

The theme for the weekly Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #95 is ‘All Wet’.

You might think seeing this photo ‘this is not all wet, is it?’ And indeed it is not. Some say God created the world and The Dutch created The Netherlands.The first is a question of belief and the latter is a question of opinion. The fact is that a big part of the low lands (Netherlands) are under sea level. This small canal is part of the waterworks that manages to keep Dutch feet dry.  If we could not manage water this way you would be looking at the sea. So it is not all wet, it is managed wet and we prefer it that way.

At The Waterfront

The Netherlands, Oegstgeest – April 2020

The theme for the weekly Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #95 is ‘All Wet’.

You might think seeing this photo ‘this is not all wet, is it?’ And indeed it is not. Some say God created the world and The Dutch created The Netherlands.The first is a question of belief and the latter is a question of opinion. The fact is that a big part of the low lands (Netherlands) are under sea level. This canal is one of the waterworks that manages to keep Dutch feet dry. This canal is taking water from ‘polders’ back to the sea. If we could not manage water this way you would be looking at the sea, with the building on the left just above the sea level. So it is not all wet, it is managed wet and we prefer it that way.

Sunset (Silhouette)

The Netherlands, Oegstgeest – August 2019

The theme for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #62 is ‘silhouettes’.
Instead of ‘hard’ silhouettes I find it sometimes more pleasing to show some details in the darker parts.
