Oosterscheldekering is a nine km dam, it was the most difficult to build and most expensive part of the Delta works. Work on the dam took more than a decade. The dam is based on 65 concrete pillars with 62 steel doors, each 42 metres wide.
Each pillar is between 35 and 38.75 metres high and weighs 18000 tonnes. The dam is designed to last more than 200 years.
This dam has been declared one of the modern Seven Wonders of the World by the American Society of Civil Engineers.
Wind turbines are visible in the background.

Indeed a wonderful work of the Dutch engineers, for more safety for Dutch people.
I remember the flood of 1953 with a lot dead victims, than has Netherland learned what in future must done.
Wonderful panorama view about these area.
Lovely colours and pleasant area for look at.
Excellent composition, lovely presentation, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

picture and note give us a very interesting description of this most impressive structure. Your simple composition is very effective as far as the characteristics and dimensions of the dam and the surroundings are concerned. There's excellent depth, perspective and clarity and the colours are well defined and attractive. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

un soggetto molto interessante ripreso abbastanza bene (peccato la leggera pendenza) con dettagli ben definiti, colori equilibrati e buona composizione.
Molto belli anche i colori che pongono a contrasto il grigio della diga con le diverse gradazioni di azzurro del cielo e del mare.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Lovely angle capturing this dame with pleasing tone around this delta. The sharpness and depth is well registered in the frame.

I might have given this a slight ccw rotation to the left so that the verticals are aligned perfectly perpendicular in the centre. Good sharpness and perspective. Excellent graphism and shadow detail. Bon weekend!
