Just some photo’s I took in Zeeland.
Typical Dutch clouds
“Veerse meer”, a former firth, closed to a lake, to prevent floodings. There was a very big flood in 1953, flooding almost half of Zeeland, in which almost 2000 people drowned. After that large works were undertaken to prevent further floods, including closing this firth with a dam.
The lake is named after Veere, the small medieval city you can vaguely see across the water. The lake is oblong, you’re looking at one of the smallest parts here.
About 4 or 5 meters deep here. You can see the bottom of the lake shimmering in the deep. In the middle of the lake, it’s a lot deeper.
Flat water, flat land.
My 40 year old moped on which I came there, riding about 190 km from my home town Eindhoven in the province of Brabant, in the south-east of the Netherlands. A drive taking about 8 hours, as mopeds aren’t allowed to go very fast, and there are lots of traffic lights in urbanised Brabant.
