Ambience seaport and harbour at the Dutch coast.
Schelde gezien vanuit Vlissingen
Sound recording on breakwater that stretches 150 meters into the river Wester Schelde (Western Scheldt) at the coast of province Zeeland in The Netherlands. Here the river is 5 km wide. The breakwater protects the entrance of the harbour. The mics are just 5 meters from the water. Here also the ships cross the Antwerp port and, behind me some enter and leave the inner harbour of Vlissingen. Some moments the ships are on just 100m from me.
