Perfect Preserved History in DEDEMSVAART, the Netherlands thanks to the Historical Association Avereest.

Lime kilns were used from medieval periods right through to the 18th and 19th centuries. They were used in earlier times for the production of mortar for building purposes, and as during the 18th and 19th centuries also for the production of lime for agricultural purposes.The raw material, sea shells, were transported from the North Sea coast to Dedemsvaart with canal barges.

Shot taken during the photo shoot I did there, processed in Photoshop CS5 to experience and achieve some different effects, to emphasize the lime kilns.

    Mooi Annet! Fraaie bewerking! En interessante info!
    Ben zo vrij geweest een beetje van je foto af te snijden…. Hoe vind je dat? Iets minder gras? Brutaal, hè? Als je ’t niks vindt, delete je deze reply maar!

    Liefs en groeten!
    Hans xxx

  • Hi Hans,
    Ben je gek tuurlijk delete ik die foto niet! Dankje voor de tip. Je hebt helemaal gelijk hoor. Ik was helemaal gefocussed op het feit dat dit de voorkant van het familie boek zou worden en daarbij de rand groen had gebruikt voor de titel. Niet meer nagedacht en hoppa de eerste versie daarna op RB gezet. Fijne avond gewenst en groetjes xx Annet
