Launching kite and camera (attached to the kite's line) near the spot where the Germans blew two holes in the IJsselmeer dyke on 17-04-1945, eighteen days before the end of World War II. Wieringermeer polder (visible in background) flooded within two days and forced desperate farmers and other inhabitants to leave their farms, land and other possessions.
In december 1945 the polder was dry again after dyke restoration and a lot of pumping. Leaving the dyke not as straight as he used to be.

The Netherlands
View on the Amstel lake, that used to be a tidal channel between the Wadden Sea and (former) Zuider Sea. It separated the mainland of North-Holland from the (former) Island Wieringen, visible left in the background. After the troublesome construction of the Amsteldiep dyke (± 1924) Wieringen lost its island-status and the water of the Amstel lake became brackish to fresh.
On the right side a part of the small village Van Ewijcksluis can be seen.
Image made with kite and camera (attached to the kite's line).
