Back in Time

I didn’t visit the Zuiderzeemuseum when I was in Enkhuizen last year (I did visit it some 25 years ago with my grandparents though), I only walked around the perimeter of the museum and was surprised how much you could still see of the open-air museum, whose purpose is to show the architecture and the atmosphere of villages around the former Zuiderzee.

This part of the museum is the Church Quarter. In this street here, visitors to the museum can experience some old shops, like a sweetshop, selling some old Dutch confectionery, or a visit the basket weaver’s. The Church Quarter was partly based on the town of Hindeloopen in Friesland, however, the church itself is originally from the town of Den Oever.

I liked the compo with areas in shadow in foreground and the main landscape shinning in the sun. nice details like the bridge and the tower. TFS.



Hello Lars,

nice play with light and shadow around the old drawbridge, including some pedestrians who provide life in a scenery which otherwise might have looked any little gone.

Best regards from the middle Rhine

Bonjour, cher Lars,
Très bonne idée de transformer ces lieux en un musée en plein air. Ainsi, l'on peut se rendre compte de la vie à une époque donnée.
L'on s'aperçoit que nos anciens avaient bien du talent.
Très bonne prise de vue.

Hello Lars,

Fantastic sharpness with good shadow detail and nice warm cold colour contrasts between the red roof and the blue sky. The clock tower makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

Hi Lars,

The point of view is showing the details of the houses and of the church. It is clear and sharp. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.

Dag Lars

Ik vroeg me al af of dit hetzelfde bruggetje was dat we even geleden ook gezien hebben. Ik vermoed van wel. Mooie aanvulling. Mijn favoriet element hier is de schaduw van het bruggetje op de muur.


Bonjour Lars,

Il parait très moderne ce pont levis devant ce village qui semble avoir beaucoup d'histoire. J'aime bien le passage entre l'homme et la lumière.



Ciao Lars, great view of lovely place,fine details, excellent clarity, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Lars,
Besides the typical Dutch bridge over a canal, I like the light and shadows contrast upon this corner. The tower prominently "shine" above.
A nice moment on photo.
Good afternoon,

Interesting photo from this open air museum and in the FG a very intersting structure of a drawbridge, perfect depth and clarity of the photo, fantastic texture of the walls
regards Ryszard

Hello Lars, bridges like this, to me, are distinctively Dutch.And remind me of similar bridges painted by Van Gogh!
Lovely shadow created by the framework.
An interesting scene.
It sounds like a good place to visit.
Thanks for sharing.
Regards Jean.

Dag Lars I like very much those voyages back in time showing vintage ways of living. In this picture you show an interesting view on the ancestor of drawbridges (?). Nevertheless I have a doubt about its use because I consider no sailboat could be rided in such a narrow canal for fear of scratching on stone shores by high winds. Nice old decor behind. Groeten

Hello Lars,
What a lovely, timeless photo! The red roofs against an immaculatelt blue sky have made it!

Hello Lars, Nice view from this open air museum. Beautiful old buildings, attractive movable bridge. Nostalgic picture.

Kind regrad s MAlgo

Good morning Lars,
Indeed, the place looks like from the past times, with no modern elements disturbing the atmosphere and the view. Well taken scene.


Hello Lars,

The bridge is very Dutch and reminds me of a huge puppet with outstretched arms and associated strings.
I love the subtle combination of dappled shadows and bright sunlight; a difficult combination but very well handled.
I like this idea of re-erected villages teaching about the past in the best possible way. WE have Beamish, in the north of England, which consists of old houses, rebuilt in a mining village style with examples of all the diverse buildings you would normally encounter.

Have a lovely w/e,
Bev :-)

Hello Lars,

An excellent color contrast between red color roof tiles and blue sky, silhouette of tree branches on the upper corner of frame make it lovely, well managed light and shade, thanks for sharing.

warm regards,


Hello Lars,

It is an interesting experience to visit places years later, good image of this city where the thin tower in the back calls my attention, well seen,

Have a good weekend,

Dag Lars,

Ze zijn zo mooi om naar te kijken, die gezellige plaatjes met een brugje.
Heerlijk panorama zicht over dit deel van de stad.
Dit is een heerlijk foto, bedankt.

Prettige avond,

Hi Lars
A peep into the past full of a treasure trove of goodies here to keep the eye going round for quite a while. Interesting shot featuring the immaculate detail and colour to the best. An eye candy capture, Congrats
Best wishes

Dag Lars
Ik kan je haast niet bijbenen op het ogenblik. Ik kan zien dat je op de hielen gezeten wordt voor een plaats op pagina 2. Gelukkig heeft de kwaliteit van de foto’s er niet onder te lijden want dit is weer een fraai voorbeeld van een oudhollands dorpsgezicht.
Groet Rob
