Hi, I'm Berend, born in The Hague but I live in Maassluis since 1969. Previous I only made some snapshots during holidays. In 2007 I bought a digital SLR and started to make pictures as a hobby and not only during holidays. Since 2009 I try to photograph birds, it's like chasing but the birds stays alive. I've uploaded most of my photos in chronological order, so you can make the journey/hike with me. Pictures of my holidays are in labels starting with an asterix (*). I hope you like my pictures and hope to get constructive comments as I have much to learn. PLEASE NO INVITATIONS FOR GROUPS!!! Greetings from the Netherlands.

Sorry for the belated response, Berend. Yes, this winch was manufactured by Russell Foundry in Sydney prior to their closure in 1874. It was used here on the banks of Tinana Creek to winch loads of cane onto punts for delivery to a central sugarmill and to haul other cargo brought to the sugarcane plantation by steamer or punt.

It is located at the very spot where the first recruited workers for the Maryborough Sugar Company stepped ashore late at night, 30 August 1865. They were to begin creating a sugar plantation, the one which really launched the sugar industry in Australia.

Among that first team of 12 recruits were my great grandfather and his sister, Claus Johann Stehbens and Catarina Stehbens (born Wiebke Katharine Staeben).

This winch was sited on Hatchmann's cane farm, but it has since been removed and kept for posterity.

Leuk gezien, zoals je in de wolken ook allerlei figuren en wezens kunt ontdekken, Mooi!

Je hebt een schitterende serie foto's van schepen onder een heerlijke wolkenlucht gepubliceerd Berend. Mooie kleuren. PS: Bremen is een bijzonder gezellige stad: een aanrader! Dank voor je bezoek en je 'comment'.
