Photographer's Note

The Netherlands is a low-lying country with 25% of its land area below sea level and 50% less than 1 m above sea level. The Maeslantkering storm surge barrier is one of the largest moving structures on earth. Spanning the Nieuwe waterweg, a canal that connects the river Rhine to the North sea, the Maeslant acts as a final line of defence for Rotterdam against high levels of incoming seawater.
