This minimalist coastal landscape was photographed at the Oosterschelde in the province of Zeeland in The Netherlands. It was rainy and windy and a rather gloomy day, as the photograph shows. So, excellent conditions for more minimalist landscape photography. A longer exposure smoothened the water of the Oosterschelde as well as the sky a bit. The photograph has a minimalist look and zen feel as a result. The light on the horizon was a nice bonus. The signposts stand out better because of it. A black & white presentation seems to fit this Dutch coastal landscape photograph best.
The signposts in the photograph stand in the Oosterschelde near the municipality of Tholen in the Dutch province of Zeeland. The Oosterschelde is a former estuary, and it is the largest national park in the Netherlands. The signposts warn boats against the danger of underwater cliffs. Besides that, they guide them past the cliffs. The title “Passage” seemed to be a fitting title photograph of Oosterschelde in Zeeland.
