Nature in Noord

Following centuries of control over nature and water, people of The Netherlands are finally realizing you can overdo control, neatness and design. Slowly pieces of land are overgrowing again. The Dutch call it nature and use it for recreation. Here you can see a boat gliding over the canal off the IJ and in the vicinity of the ecological zone Schellingwoude. With the right camera angle, you can almost picture yourself far away from the busy city, when in fact you’re right in the middle of it.
