THE NETHERLANDS – “De zandmotor”, or in English the sand engine is a hook-shaped peninsula which was created by humans; the surface is about 1 km². It is at the beach between the village of Monster and the city of Den Haag. This project made the beach much wider then normal, and created a beautiful natural area.
Now after some years, you can actually see the effects of this experiment. Nature is forming new dunes with the new added sand to the land: you can see dune plants starting to grow and small dune hills are created more and more.
On this day, i had an appointment near the dunes, i walked there for the appointment and decided to make a hike in the dunes of den haag. The plan to walk towards “de zandmotor” was long in my mind. I didn’t really plan to walk this far today, but as I had the wind in my back, the wind sort of just took me there…
And what a beautiful pictures I made there with the stormy weather and amazing cloud formations…
