Yerseke is a fishing village in Zeeland known for its aquaculture. The Oosterschelde river produce the most delicious lobsters and crowds visit the oyster pits and the restaurants for mussels. In fact, at this spot, during the shooting people were collecting oysters right next to the poles. This is a 3-minute exposure, off the coast of Yerseke in Zeeland of a construction of wooden poles with a sign "life in danger".

Photography Tips

a 24-70 mm is fine! make sure you are here at high tide, in low tide the wooden poles will be bare to mud and stones. Note that this spot is always windy, check your focus manually after each shot as the hard wind can move your lens. Patience is a virtue. Of course, you may go down to the water but there are stairs a little bit to the right from this spot. You should be extra careful when going down on the stone wall in the lower part which has been under water at high tide - it may be extremely slippery. Watch out for your gear while doing so, you will have to climb up eventually with your gear with the stairs. This shot was taken from up on the cemented pavement.
