Kinderdijk (Netherlands) during Corona is a Once in a Lifetime!

in #photographylast month

Sounds a little exaggerated but think about it. Every openair museum or national park is closed for tourist. And now it is open for people who are in Holland at this moment... Crazy!

Adventure with @guchtere

Before last week it took ages for us to have a proper adventure together and this week we have two in a row! Going to Kinderdijk might seem a little unsafe for some, where there are thousands and thousands of tourist entering the city of windmills every week. During Covid-19 it is almost deserted, atleast if you go after 18:00 o'clock.

As a photographer it is rare I haven't been there my whole life. It is super Dutch with all the windmills, little canals and flat landscapes. Today @guchtere and I wanted to show you how beautifull it can be.

Kinderdijk

Literally transelated as Childdike is known for being the first place in the Netherlands that had electricity. This has nothing to do with the windmills. The windmills are on UNESCO's list and therefor famous to all our tourist.
Today we wanted to stay safe, avoid as many people as we could and visit Kinderdijk at night.

Long exposure photo's are necessary to attract enough light. Everthing that moves during my 15-30 sec photo is a blur. Look at the water at the second photo below. Notice the water reflecting at points where it didn't move, the rest is all blurred.
