This Dutch coastal landscape was photographed along at the Oesterdam (Oyster Dam), near the town of Tholen in the Dutch province of Zeeland. The Oesterdam is situated in The Oosterschelde, or Eastern Scheldt in English. It is a former estuary and the largest national park in the Netherlands. The coast along the Oosterschelde is a great place for coastal landscape photography because it has many worthwhile subjects to photograph. The signposts in this coastal landscape are a great example.
This minimalist Dutch coastal landscape shows the Oosterschelde on a day with rainy, windy and very foggy weather, as can be seen in the photograph. The mood was quite attractive because there still was some light on the horizon. It makes the signposts stand out. A black & white presentation seemed to fit the minimalist mood and feel of the photograph best.
The signposts in the photograph are there to warn boats for the danger of underwater cliffs. They guide them past them. “Danger” seemed to be a fitting title for this Dutch coastal landscape.
