IJmuiden has two long piers 2 and 3 km long, who keep the water free from sand.
The North pier has (2 km) has two small lighthouses with red strips and gives red light, the South pier (background,3 km) has two small lighthouses with green strips and gives green light.
I show earlier this picture but without a cut (up and below) and this time the upload is bigger (but didn't work on this site?), I hope you will like it?

A very beautiful panorama! The pier leads the eye straight the red lighthouse, the given eye-catcher here. Even the clouds seem to have a focal point here. The colours of the sky are excellently captured. A very good picture with an attractive depth.

une belle capture avec un bon POV qui donne beaucoup de profondeur à la photo. Lumière et couleurs superbes et le phare rouge ajoute une note qui donne une bonne dynamique à la photo.

Nicely cropped horizontally for a better composition, Robert.
The view is in great depth and long shutter speed made a silkey texture to the water, a trade-mark of yours.
Lovely sight well collected.

è passato molto tempo da quando ho visto una tua fotografia. Le tue apparizioni in TE non sono frequenti ma ogni foto proposta è sempre di qualità superiore, esattamente come questa.
I colori, la composizione, la stessa gestione della luce oltre che il soggetto sono curati in maniera magnifica e il risultato è straordinario.
Una foto meravigliosa che merita una particolare lode.
Ciao e buona serata

Beautiful image with the red lantern providing contrasting colour and a strong point of focus. Lovely light on the horizon!

This is an excellent composition with the pier giving good depth. Especially I like the mild colours with so many differnt tones of blue, green and yellow. The little lighthouse is well placed and gives the photo an injection of brightness.

An eye-catching thumbnail and even better full size.
The pier, with its strong, protective stones, makes a lovely curved approach to the focal lighthouse, which seems to be celebrated wonderfully by the radiating sky.
It looks like a beautiful illustration by David Armitage from 'The Lighthouse Keeper' books!
My warm regards,

I think that the panoramic format works very well although I am not sure about the horizon being in the middle of the frame.
The subdued colours are very pleasing and the clarity first class.

I like it a lot! Amazing as always! This is really great landscape post taken with a fantastic sense of depth and perfectly executed exposure to achieve a beautiful result. Very well done!
tatadalou (6081) 2014-04-30 14:38
Sure I like it ! The curve shape of the pier gives some movement. The long exposure time provides an impression of a floating pier,an a sensation of eternity. I love how the lighthouse adds a little colour in this grey universe.

Great to hear from you again! Hope you've been doing well. Even if you don't have the chance to be active on a regular basis, you certainly never disappoint with a new photo, and this is just more proof. :)
Suited just right for the panoramic format, the sky and sea play well together as the horizon breaks the composition in half with the striped lighthouse as a focal point. The curved jetty takes us on a natural progression from front to back with ease, creating a strong sense of depth. Rich colors as always. hope to see many more. Take good care. All the best.

C'est un grand plaisir de revoir une de tes superbes photos, surtout dans ce grand format qui permet d'en apprécier toute la beauté et la qualité.

despite your absence it is always easy to spot your posts here, they have an elegance and grace that very few manage to capture. This is a fine example - with textbook composition, accomplished execution and a result - captivating beauty. Another stunner!
Regards - B.

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. La jetée est parfaitement placée dans l'image et guide le regard au loin vers le phare qui brille dans une belle lumière douce. J'aime beaucoup la texture de l'eau.
marabu61 (8145) 2014-05-01 8:29
Beautiful scene indeed. The colors and the light are sublime and the long exposure suits this very well. The quality of the silky water and the movement of the clouds in the sky are superbly visible.
have a great day
Cricri (105249) 2014-05-01 10:48
Splendide tant dans les couleurs, la composition et le cadrage, j'aime l'effet donner par la longue pose sur l'eau, la courbe du chemin vers le phare, très belle réalisation

Het is weeral zolang geleden dat ik nog eens werk van u heb gezien.
Maar zoals altijd een top foto op de perfect wijze, met diepte en perspectief.
De gekleurde lichttoren geeft een extra kleurtje aan deze mooie foto.
pracht opnieuw Robert. Bedankt.
Prettig weekend gewenst,

Welcome back, I was not here much either lately. So nice to see you excellent photo once again. Not much else to say, but just to show my appreication for you fantastic quality work. The large version give us a really wonderful impression and more details. Love these clouds, so wonderful in the pattern and with your exposure, you captured the delicate color and tone, and the slight blur give wonderful feeling of motion as if the clouds is still moving toward me.
