This very clear 240 mm KB tele view completes my documentation of the mouth of the river Scheldt and the skyline of the city of Vlissingen as seen from Terneuzen.

I can cut off the Dow factory to make the pano more appealing to the audience but I won't do that because it is the part I cannot photograph from the Waterfront building. Moreover, I consider it in some way 'a piece of art'. You will discover that within a few weeks.

Tide on the pano is average at about 0 m NAP. The lower plates are inundated. While part of the Hooge Platen is still visible in the middle, the highest levels (up to + 6.9 m NAP) near Breskens are largely hidden from view because of a mirage. This is also the case with the North Sea horizon left of Vlissingen.

Since 1999, the Vlissingen skyline is dominated by the 85 m high Sardijn tower which is the second tallest building of Zeeland after the 90.5 m Abbey tower Lange Jan of Middelburg (right in the pano) and apart from some industrial constructions in the harbor as well as the 137 m communication tower in Goes. In 2010, a 17 floors oval apartment building, called Hooglicht, was added to the scene. Just right of Hooglicht, one can distinguish the 54 m high dune near Zoutelande, which is often the highest but currently the second highest dune in the Netherlands. Anyway it is the highest hill in a 50 km radius (see pano 18039 on the top).

An interesting panoramic picture, quite in a sense a work of art. I had done a similar experiment with Panorama No. 14919.
And I also read the information in the description with great interest.

I don't prefer this on evening.

@Mentor, what does Mirage mean at 291 ° and 299 °?
2018/08/25 12:18 , Heinz Höra
@Heinz, fata morgana, often seen at long distance when photographing close to the surface.

Thx mentor, but I only knew so far only so-called lower air reflections (http://www.physik.wissenstexte.de/halligen.htm), as you can see in my panorama No. 14002.

@ Heinz, it is exactly the same.

Very interesting - much more than a sunset. Cheers, Martin

54m for a dune, that is a huge height - the mood is fascinating and your panorama work excellent, Mentor!! And last but not least, thanks for the detailed description ...

Cheers, Hans-Jörg
