I made this 360° pano on the dike, where the big meander of river Scheldt begins to turn to the south again, at lands end let's say. It is low tide and the sandbanks appear all around. Tide difference is huge: 4.5 to 5.5 m. Look how high (8 to10 m) the dike is above the 'polder' land which is often 2 m to 4 m below high tide. So all this land was won on the river, step by step since the Middle Ages until recently. As such, the landscape is crossed with many older, much lower dikes. The small village of Ossenisse is nearby and is already mentioned since the year 1164. It was often inundated in earlier times when the old dikes collapsed. There was also a small harbor at Zeedorp but that disappeared within the new dike. Many of the lowest 'polders' are given back to nature and are reclassified as natural reserves :-). It is a nice area for those who want to enjoy the silence and noises of nature and of course to bike.

Bei diesen Dimensionen eine sehr gelungene Arbeit die ich mir gerne angesehen habe. Herzliche Grüße Velten
