Walking in the harbour of Yerseke, The Neherlands, I spotted this ring onto which boats once hooked themselves up. This particular one, as I assume, was not on duty any longer...
Yerseke is one of the small fishermen villages in the south of The Netherlands that were flooded during the February 1st, 1953 flooding. During that night, more than 1800 people lost their lives. That flooding is the main reason the great water works in The Netherlands were built.
By the way: the picture has been cropped a little, and the surreal effect has been achieved by using a Ligthroom Template by Matt Pavel. As far as I'm concerned: Matt, thumbs up!
