Taken from Rotterdam's high tower Euromast, (1960), while again nighthunting with Bert on August 28.
The view is to the West, in the direction of the North Sea. What you see is the secondary road into Schiedam for traffic by road (there's also the freeway more to the north), but this one takes you along the harbours. To the left of the well lit road, is the river Nieuwe Waterweg (New Waterway) along which many goods are transported inland. Nowadays the main harbours are found very close to the sea, so that the big sea ships can move out of Rotterdam as soon as possible.
Rotterdam as been the World's largest Port for about 27 years. Two years ago Shanghai and Singapore grew bigger.
Bert's picture of the hunt is here, and see the workshop for a picture of Bert himself.
