The Eilandje (literally 'little island') is an old part of Antwerp in the north of the city. It is where the oldest docks are. This particular dock is called the Willemdok, named after the Dutch king. It's right next to Napoleondock, which was named after...you guessed it.
It used to be a sort of wasteland, really, but these days the area is undergoing a massive facelift, and it is being promoted as the hippest place in town.
This is the view from the MAS museum onto the old docks.

Hello Benny ,
La très belle lumière hivernale joue ici un très grand role pour nous montere ce quartier portuaire sous son meilleur jour . Point de vue très intéressant et cadrage parfait .

Hi Benny - Seems to be happening to a lot of old waterfronts these days - refurbished and rebuilt as the hot new neighborhood. That transformation is taking place in my city of Boston, along the harbor, as well.
Nice angle to this - just high enough to give you good shape and definition among the boats in the water, with strong light ahead of deep clouds. Thanks!
