Waiting in the 'Prinses Irenesluizen' by Hans Bax

Waiting in the 'Prinses Irenesluizen' by 

Summer 2006. My sons went again (like every year) with their comrades for a scouting event with their boats to Utrecht (Holland) to take part in rowing competitions. The boats were linked together and were towed by a tug to Utrecht.

On this image they are waiting in the locks of Wijk bij Duurstede, called the ‘Princess Irene Locks’. The difference in water height is 3.5 meters.
This time, unfortunately, it became a rainy day, but they had lots of fun….

Thank you for making the effort to take a look at my photos. Your visit is very much appreciated!
Photography is my passion since my youth and I never go out without my camera.
I found red-bubble in Spring 2009 and I’m glad I did. It’s a very inspiring and fascinating place to be, in more ways than one.
A heartfelt thanks to you all for the many kind words and wonderful compliments you gave me. I look forward viewing your world and sharing mine.
Have a wonderful day! Take care!

  • Dank je John! Ik vond dat contrast tussen die kleine rotbootjes van de jongens en die enorme schuit er naast zo fascinerend! (ook wel een beetjes eng in zon smalle sluis….)

    A great shot, they are swarfed by the barge??

  • Hi Kala! Thanks again! I had to let them go, but was a little bit afraid – they so small and the other ones so very big….
