Sea-harbour Vlissingen at the land-side in Holland. There is always a lot of noise.

Left site harbour

Right site harbour (with mic)

It starts calm. A woman with high pitch voice ask her husband if he did catch a fish. He shakes his head; No...

Than, after two minutes an engine starts somewhere. A sailing boat comes from the right, waiting to pass the sea-lock. You can hear him communicate by the radio (marifoon) with the harbour authority asking for permission. He has to pass trough the left lock, but it is closed at the moment.
In the mean time a large barge, loaded with sand, comes in and sail directly into the large middle lock.
Other sailing boats wait for permission to.
After 11.30 minutes the engine stops and you hear the middle steel lock-gate close.
Than after 12.11 minutes the left smaller wooden lock-door opens and the sailing-boats can come in.

At the right hand side you hear some noise of the shipyard. A plane flying over, the call of the Arctic Tern and the seagull.

location: Harbour Vlissingen land-side (see geotag. Holland (The Netherlands).
