Photographer's Note

The next village West of Haarlem: Bloemendaal, a village, you have to visit if you like the old rich. (the nouveaux riches live east of Amsterdam in Het Gooi)
I took this picture from the highest dune of the Netherlands, Het Kopje van Bloemendaal, which is 45m high) On the top there's a observationtower, built by the Germans in the Second World War.

From this tower, I took this picture on the a day with changing weather, but it was a rather bright day and on such days you can see the Harbour of Amsterdam, which is about 20km from Bloemendaal. The harbour of Amsterdam is the second biggest in Holland, after Rotterdam. The harbour is connected with the North Sea through the Noordzeekanaal (North Sea Channel).

Behind the first trees you can see the village Bloemendaal. Behind the wood, you can see Haarlem-Noord. The stadium you can see in the middle is the Pim Mulier Stadion and here is every summer the Haarlem Baseball Week. (and I live in the quater next to this stadium).
In the background you can see the harbour of Amsterdam, with among other things the Hemweg Powerplant (the smoking chimney in the middle).
Right of the last chimneys you can see the office-buildings of Amsterdam Sloterdijk, I showed you the railwaystation there.
Between Haarlem and this harbour, you can find the Waarderpolder.
If you have any questions about other buildings on the picture, just ask.

I cropped this picture a little bit and increased the colours, hope you like it!
