Sunrise on the lake IJsselmeer with the nets of the fisherman in a beautiful light that just came out of the mist. I was driving on the Afsluitdijk and thought WOW stopped my car and made some shots. A special gift from Mother Nature!

IJsselmeer sometimes translated as Lake IJssel, alternative international spelling: Lake Yssel is a shallow artificial lake of 1100 km² in the central Netherlands bordering the provinces of Flevoland, North Holland and Friesland, with an average depth of 5 to 6 m. It is named after the IJssel river that drains into it via a smaller lake, the Ketelmeer. The IJsselmeer is the largest lake in Western Europe.

The internal capitalization in the spelling is because IJ is a digraph in Dutch, possibly a ligature, and sometimes considered a single letter (see IJ (letter)).

The IJsselmeer was created in 1932 when an inland sea, the Zuiderzee, was closed by a 32 km dam, the Afsluitdijk. This was part of a major hydraulic engineering project known as the Zuiderzee Works, that years later led to the reclaiming of land from the IJsselmeer, thereby diminishing the size of the lake.
