I am a Dutch biologist who is currently living in Noord Brabant, the Netherlands, who has never, and will never be persuaded to get a Google+ account. I’ve been seriously wasting time on photography since 2004 and I love to travel around and take pictures of all the beautiful sites I see. These photographs have found their way to a number of places on the internet such as Wikimedia and the Belgian site I periodically upload relevant photographs to this site in the hope that they will serve some use in helping visitors learn a little more about the incredibly rich architectural/cultural heritage of the Netherlands, as well as all the places I visit during my travels. I also occasionally show interesting examples of threatened architectural heritage in Flanders before they perish.

This particular fortress hasn't seen any action. It was built in 1833, after the southern provinces of the Kingdom of the Netherlands rebelled, eventually forming Belgium. Its main purpose was to strengthen the fortress town of Geertruidenbeg, in case Belgian and French troups would decide to invade the rest of the southern provinces of the Netherlands. This never happened.

Een goeie opname :) het licht is hier erg mooi, vooral de combinatie tussen het warme gewelf en de kille koepel is goed getroffen.

I think it is a nice picture. Thanks you for sharing. Of course, I LIKE this photo.

See you soon… Best regards from Grasse, in France.
