Photographer's Note

Walking through the polders of * Zeeland, always good for a "lovely shot".

And it is nothing more than that... I'm afraid ;o) and I would have liked more land on this one, but I decided to post it because Georges likes the "Big Skies" of the nothern European countries.

* The province of Zeeland, is situated in the south west of The Netherlands, limited by

  • Belgium in the south
  • The North Sea in the west
  • The province of Brabant in the east and
  • The province of South-Holland in the north.

    The province is divided in Flanders, formed by former islands in the Scheldt estuary. The main islands are Walcheren, North Beveland, South Beveland, Tholen most east, and * Schouwen-Duivenland where we live.

    * The Island called Schouwen-Duiveland, in Zeeland isn't quite an island anymore as it is connected to others with:

  • TheBrouwersdam in the North
  • The Grevelingendam in the East
  • The 5km long Zeelandbridge in the South and
  • The Oosterscheldedam, (Eastern Scheldt storm-surge barrier) in the West.

    All those dams and bridges are part of the Delta Works.
