Breaking the waves... by Hans Bax

  • 431 views25 July 2013

My daughter Eva and her boyfriend went for a long weekend to Newcastle, UK. I brought them to the harbour of IJmuiden, where they took the ferry to England.
The weather was not that good, a bit stormy, but when they had checked in, I went to the “Kop van de Haven” (the end of the harbour). The views were impressive!
At the horizon, at the very end of the Noordzeekanaal (North Sea Canal) I saw the waves crashing against the pier with the lighthouse. And again I was very content I can zoom 35x with my new camera!!! LOL!

IJmuiden, Holland – 3 November 2012
Camera: Canon Powershot SX40 HS ~ zoomed 35x


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!

    Helemaal Holland Hans
    (te bedenken dat de Moffen daar in de 2e wereldoorlog een grote duikboot bases hadden…)

  • Goedemorgen John! Alles wel?
    ‘k Was helemaal onder de indruk van die enorme golven… heb ik in NL nog nooit gezien. Was trouwens wel op afstand: heb 35x ingezoomed, maar ik vond het effect op de foto wel aardig.
    Voor zo’n basis trouwens wel een goede plek. Er is daar ook een heel gebied als ‘Bunkermuseum’, zag ik, toen ik in de omgeving nog wat rondkarde.
    Groeten en alvast een goed weekend!
    Fijne dag!
