Calm ambience. The sun has just set on an after summer evening on the river Maas. It’s dark.
Maas September 2020
A zander is hunting nearby in the shallow part of the river. Geese and ducks can be heard in the distance. Far on the other side of the river, some local traffic, including a few mopeds, is driving. A dog lets you know that it is there.
