Still waters


Zaanse Schans is an open-air museum north of Amsterdam with six windmills, including ones that grind paint pigments and spices for mustard

Last spring my ex and I went to the Netherlands, pursuing our dream of witnessing the amazing places we saw so often online. As a passionate landscape photographer, I also wanted to contribute my own take. When we arrived in the Zaandam neighbourhood of Zaanse Schans, we found a unique place of windmills and wood bridges, the calm water all around adding a magical reflection. The weather wasn’t very pleasant, so we decided to wait until sunset, when the sun suddenly appeared from behind the clouds and illuminated the village, as in a fairytale. When I look at this photo, I want to go back – and I’m sure I will soon.
