"Het paard van Marken"
One of the most photographed Dutch lighthouses is the "Paard van Marken". This lighthouse lies at the Markermeer near Amsterdam. You have to walk to it and takes about half an hour so I had to make sure I was there well before sunrise.
We left early in the morning and arrived at dark. As it starts to get lighter the sun colored the clouds dramatically from bright orange to blue. In order to get the right angle I had to walk into the water with my boots and make sure I would flood them.
We were extremely lucky with these conditions as with previous sunrises we didn't had any nice skies. We ended the day at the other side of the province at the North Sea coast and were treated again with a nice colorful sunset.
