The Netherlands-Uitgeest
Second series taken during a late afternoon visit to the mill that drains the polder "Dorregeest", together with an electrically pumping station. This mill (1896 AD) replaced an earlier one, that was struck by lightning in 1895. A-14-year old daugther of miller Deijle lost her life on that occasion.
In the background "Limmergat", part of lake Alkmaar, and two polders (left: Hempolder, right Dorregeesterpolder).

The Netherlands-Limmen
View on the "Schulpvaart", a natural ditch and relic from the time (3.000 BC) that the "Oer-IJ" estuary was situated here. Later on -untill the 20th century- the "Schulpvaart" was an important waterway for the carrying trade between the villages Castricum, Limmen and Akersloot. Lots of shells (schulp/schelp in Dutch) were transported to the lime kilns near lake Alkmaar.

Netherlands, Bakkum.
A bouquet of Southern Marsh orchids (Rietorchis-Dactylorhiza majalis subsp. praetermissa) and Greater Yellow-rattle (grote ratelaar-Rhinanthus angustifolius) on grounds managed by "De Hooge Weide" foundation. They achieve great success with a.o. high water level and no (or at the most little) fertilization.This kind of vegetation is their reward.

The Netherlands-Uitgeest
Image -made with kite and camera- of the never (or not yet?) completed heritage park "De Hoop", once founded in honor of Cornelis Corneliszoon, the inventor of the wind powered saw mill. As a result of his invention it became possible to saw large amounts of timber in a relatively short time. Thus boards and beams could be sawn, and these could be used, for instance, for shipbuilding. The enormous growth of shipbuilding in The Netherlands in general - and the Zaan District in particular - was a direct consequence of this invention. From this period onwards the Zaanstreek (the Zaan District) was seen as Europe's first industrial area. So his invention meant an important boost to the economic development of The Netherlands, back in the 17th century.
It is therefore sad to see this park incomplete and stagnating.

Netherlands, Uitgeest.
Session with kite and camera on grounds managed by "De Hooge Weide" foundation. Their aim is to protect and preserve nature reserves in the Castricummerpolder. They achieve great success with a.o. high water level and no (or at the most little) fertilization. A rich birdlife and vegetation is their reward. The images show the flowering Greater Yellow-rattle (grote ratelaar-Rhinanthus angustifolius), a semi-parasitic plant on grasses.
