Title: The Dutch Polder

About the Photo:

This is a small series about the Dutch Polder. In particular the ‘Beemster Polder’ which is used in the series. I wanted to express its emptiness, mood and beautiful landscape architecture you can find there. With post processing I wanted to create a surrealistic and peaceful mood. The mood you can feel when you are standing there; in the wind and looking around you.

The Beemster Polder is a small polder, with its typical trees on the dike. The polder exists since 1612 and 50 polder mills were used to drain it. Since 1999 the Beemster Polder is on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list.
