Don’t you just love the way the sun can break through the clouds brightening a grayish day. Especially when the sun beams are showing. These photos were made at the world heritage site Kinderdijk in the Netherlands.
The outstanding contribution made by the people of the Netherlands to the technology of handling water is admirably demonstrated by the installations in the Kinderdijk-Elshout area. Construction of hydraulic works for the drainage of land for agriculture and settlement began in the Middle Ages and have continued uninterruptedly to the present day. The site illustrates all the typical features associated with this technology – dykes, reservoirs, pumping stations, administrative buildings and a series of beautifully preserved windmills.
It had been a rainy day until the sun broke through creating magic. Don’t the windmills look magical in this light. These photos are a sweet memory of an amazing family day out.
This is my I interpretation of this week’s A word a week photo challenge: cloud from “A word in your ear”.
