Kinderdijk is a village in the Netherlands about 15 km east of Rotterdam. Kinderdijk is situated in a polder in the Alblasserwaard at the confluence of the Lek and Noord rivers. To drain the polder, a system of 19 windmills was built around 1740. This group of mills is the largest concentration of old windmills in the Netherlands. The windmills of Kinderdijk have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997.

The historic windmill complex of Kinderdijk is the only place in the world with so many gorgeous windmills so close together in an authentic polder landscape. This unique character was rewarded with an entry on the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage list in 1997.

This morning some fog was forecasted, so I decided to wake up at 4.15am and made sure to be here well before sunrise, hours before the first busses with tourist would arrive. The fog however decided to go elsewhere, but still a great sunrise. I used a Lee ND0.9 Hard Grad filter to correct the exposure for the sky.

Holland is mostly situated below sea level but the Dutch are very innovative when it comes to keeping the water at bay. The Dutch don’t notice any of this and that is thanks to modern systems that keeps the seawater level from flooding the land.
But in the the windmills was very important to prevent flooding of the land. One of the best conserved windmills in the world are in Kinderdijk, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a unique collection of 19 authentic windmills. They are with no doubt a Dutch icon throughout the entire world.
