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.

In this shot I wanted to represent many of the beauties of Holland: the orange of his flag, its fields with carpets of tulips, the windmill, the endless skies. The shot is realized with a long exposure of 4 minutes during a day with a very gray sky!
