The Netherlands-Lutjebroekerweel
In the West-Frisian corner of the province North-Holland lies Lutjebroekerweel, within polder Het Grootslag and part of nature reserve De Weelen, managed by the State Forestry (Staatsbosbeheer). After large-scale land consolidation in the 1960s this area, north of the village Lutjebroek, is the only part of the polder where the landscape of yesteryear remained more or less recognizable, although there where less trees back then. The area is surrounded by greenhouses, crop production and settlements. Lutjebroekerweel is the remnant of a medieval dike breach. Subsequently it was drained and reclaimed, but ultimately it submerged again as part of nature development. Image made with kite and camera (attached to the kite's line). © Tom Kisjes
