Noord Holland, Marken

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

2009 - lighthouse "Het Paard van Marken"(camera = Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18). Because of its unmistakable silhouet as seen "from sea", it is called "The Horse of Marken". Marken is a former isle in the Zuiderzee (salt water sea). After completion of the Afsluitdijk (dyke) in 1932, the sea became a sweet water lake called IJsselmeer. The isle of Marken was connected by a dam to the mainland in 1957 and became a peninsula. After completion of the last dyke from Hoorn to Lelystad (1976), Marken is now located in the Markermeer (lake).
