The sea also brought much prosperity, because the inhabitants of Egmond aan Zee earned their living mainly by fishing. They sailed the sea with the Pinck and bomschuiten, ship types that could be drawn easily on the beach.

In the beginning of the 20th century, with the advent of steam trawlers, attracted many Egmonders to IJmuiden and went to live there. Many do still think of the past fishing Egmond, such as the so-called fishermen's cottages and fishing monument.

ᵂᵉʳᵇᵘⁿᵍ Good morning and a great start into the new week for you ☀️! I ran 11km on the beach today. About halfway through, the tide came in, so walking became a bit more difficult. On me, was then just an additional muscle training 💪🏻😉. How did you start the week??

With an app called SunCalc I knew that around mid June the sunset would be exactly behind this lighthouse from the viewpoint in Egmond aan Zee I wanted to make this shot from. I love the round sunflare created by the glass in the lighthouse. Do you use apps like SunCalc to plan your shots?

What is your opinion about landscape photo's with almost no sharpness?

For this shot I used a shutter speed of 15 seconds during strong winds. The result is a moody picture with a sharp path and a lot of motion blur in the clouds, sea and grass. Although I usually prefer 100% sharp images I think I really like this one 😊
