Located beside the IJsselmeer, opposite the future polder of Markerwaard, Hoorn is one of the most typical ports on the old Zuiderzee, mainly devoted now to boating for pleasure.
Hoorn's fortunes declined somewhat in the eighteenth century. The prosperous trading port became little more than a sleepy fishing village on the Zuiderzee. I
In 1932, the Afsluitdijk, or Great Enclosing Dyke, was completed and Hoorn was no longer a seaport.

A typical Ditch scene perhaps, but appealling nevertheless. Great composition and reflection

This view reminds me Amsterdam too. Good point of view, amazing capture of reflection, fine details of the city.
