The Netherlands-North Sea Canal
View on North Sea Canal, the connection between Amsterdam harbour and North Sea. On this spot a highway tunnel (Velsertunnel) was constructed in 1957. During the digging the remains of a (northernmost) Roman harbour and stronghold were uncovered.
The ventilation towers (nickname: the hyacinths) lost their function after a renovation of the tunnel in 2016.

The Netherlands, near Beverwijk.
Lost and found! Or perhaps a science project?

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.
