The Netherlands, near Beverwijk.
When the North Sea Canal was built (1876) by digging a channel through the old IJ Bay, it was lined with dikes, after which the remaining portions of the IJ Bay were reclaimed and turned into polders. These images are made in the Wijkermeerpolder, one of the reclaimed polders. So, a 150 years ago, a salt water lake, directly connected with the "Zuiderzee", was located here.
Image made with a kite and a camera, attached to the kite's line.
