Beach nourishment at Renesse, Netherlands.
These two young boys look to this impressive bulldozer which levels the sand on the beach.
This sand is raised on the beach to guarantee the security of the dunes and the beach.
By the winter storms each year much sand washes away from the beach.
For this reason the beach is raised befor the tourist season.
This sand comes from the sand-banks in the North Sea.
Millions cubic meters of sand are processed this way each year.
