The Netherlands-Fort Pannerden
On the headland, where river Rhine - coming from Germany- splits in river Waal (right side) and Pannerden Canal" (left side), lies fort Pannerden (anno 1872). The fort (not visible on image 1) had strategic significance in that it guarded the Pannerden Canal, which supplied the water for the possible inundation of the New Dutch Waterline, but the fort saw little active service. In World War II on May 10, 1940, during the German invasion of the Netherlands, the fort was first bypassed, then surrounded and simply conquered by the invaders. After the War the fort was stripped of all useful materials and fell into disuse. After a period of protests against the decay, in which the fort was squatted twice, local residents of the Fort Pannerden Foundation, the local city council and the State Forestry agreed to restore the fort and to use it as a museum and visitors centre for the surrounding nature reserve Klompenwaard. The waterlevel high because of intense rainfall upstream in Germany and Belgium. Image made with kite and camera (attached to the kite's line). © Tom Kisjes

The Netherlands-Makkum
Makkum is a village on the banks of the lake IJsselmeer in the province Friesland. It has a population of around 3,500. The rich history of the village is still very visible. The village has a town-like structure dating from the 17th century. At the lock are historic merchant houses. For Makkum prosperity really started in the 17th century and lasted until the 18th century. Makkum became an important center of trade and industry, including brick works, wind-powered saw-, oil-, paper-, and pealing mills, ship yards and seashell lime kilns. The lime kiln industry was the major pillar of Makkums prosperity employing many people. Transport of base materials and end products by ship caused shipping and ship construction to flourish. The pottery Royal Tichelaar Makkum is one of the oldest companies of the Netherlands. Seashell fishing was of importance next to common miseries. Lately tourism has developed strongly in Makkum from the attraction of water sports. The current (Feadship’s) yard (of a gigantic scale) does not fit in the historical villageview of Makkum and is therefore not or barely visible on these images, made with kite and camera (attached to the kite's line). © Tom Kisjes
