Calm winter afternoon on the Maas river in the Netherlands with some wind.
Maas Januari 2020 01
Behind me the hamlet Het Wild. On the other side of this 100 meter wide river is a marina and a small shipyard where it is quiet. Sometimes you hear a grinding wheel inside and the squeaking of wheels that need to be oiled. A motorboat passes by and disappears around the corner. The boat causes small waves on the shore. Occasionally you hear the wind.
You heard different birds such as geese, crows and coots.
A father scavenge with his young children through the floodplains.
Slowly a ship comes sailing down the river.
