Harbour Quarter

Just one more photo from the open-air museum Zuiderzeemuseum in Enkhuizen. This photo also shows the Harbour Quarter, just like my first post from this museum, whose purpose is to show the architecture and the atmosphere of villages around the former Zuiderzee, the current Lake IJsselmeer.

The Harbour Quarter in the museum features houses and buildings from village such as Volendam, Marken and Monnickendam. The red boat is a rescue lifeboat.

Hello Lars,

Another lovely composition from this open air museum. The red boat (fire brigade?) catches the eye immediately. Nice small houses, the tourists animate the scene. Very attractive picture.

Kind regrad s Malgo

Dag Lars,

Enkhuizen een droom voor fotografen, maar te ver voor mij, ik zoveel autogereden dat ik niet meer wil rijden, ja kleine afstanden, maar de leeftijd ook!
Ik heb heel wat beelden gezien van Volendam, door de broedkamer van vele zangers met de 'Palingsongs ' daar had ik graag eens geweest maar ook vervlogen tijd.
Uw foto is opnieuw een beauty en waar ik met plezier naar kijk. Bedankt.

Prettig weekend,

Hello, Lars,
A neat picture of the elegant houses of the museum complex.
Range of colors from green to red, blue (sky) and the brown wooden houses.
Wish you a nice weekend,

  • Great

lovely repetition of the shapes of the houses and the presence of the red boat breaking the monotony of blues and greens. perfect.



Bonjour, cher Lars,
Merci de nous faire profiter de cette visite d'un musée de plein air. Je regarde ces petites maisons qui possèdent un charme particulier.
Merci pour la note permettant de mieux comprendre le sujet présenté.
Belle journée.

Hello Lars,
A well framed composition from this very interesting outdoor museum. The red boat makes a great focal point sandwiched between the two green areas. Pleasing animated atmosphere and agreeable lights and colours.

Hello Lars,

They couldn't have painted that boat a better colour from a photographer's viewpoint! It makes a great focal point to draw attention into the scene.
I like how well you have positioned your camera, making a nice repeating feature of the triangular roofs, which then seems to be echoed in the b/g masts.
You had a beautiful day to visit this museum and have had a wonderful series of photographs to commemorate the visit.

Have a great day,
Bev :-)

Ciao Lars, great parade of lovely houses, wonderful colors, excellent perspective and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Lars.
It may be a museum but it looks like a really nice little neighbourhood by the water. The buildings are small and pretty and the red boat looks like it was placed there to attract views. Maybe it was. At least it serves that purpose well, for I guess it is not needed for many rescue missions these days. It's a beautifully bright and clear photo from a charming place.
Kind regards,

Bonjour Lars,

Ce quartier semble merveilleux. Les petites maisons de pècheurs sont vraiment belles et collées les unes sur les autres elles donnent l'impression de se soutenir les unes les autres.

Hi Lars,what a beautiful corner from this village,it seems to be in a small port of Norway....i like a lot the perspective,and the quality of sharpness is wonderful too.Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hallo Lars,
Dit openluchtmuseum bezoeken, loont echt wel de moeite.
Toen je er was, was er ook niet meteen een overrompeling van bezoekers.
Een mooi zicht dat zachtjes naar beneden loopt naar het IJselmeer toe. In een bepaalde hoek vinden we een waar kluwen van masten.
Naar de boot van de reddingsbrigade moet nooit gezocht worden. Omwille van zijn kleur is dit het eerste dat we zien.
Heel mooie presentatie.
Vele groeten, Paul

Hi Stephen,

The presence of the people is animatimg the scene. The point of view is showing the details of the houses. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.


Hello Lars,
Those wooden structure are quite charming. The red boat out of the water is a fine eye-catcher. It was a beautiful day to stroll around this open air museum.

Witaj Lars!
Very curious houses.
Good frame and composition.
Excellent sharpness and colors.
Red boat add flavor to this composition.
Well done.
Good evening.

Dag Lars
Een prachtige foto van deze vissershuisjes, maar wel een met wat storende anachronismen, hoewel jij daar natuurlijk niks aan kan doen. De masten van al die moderne plezierjachten in de haven achter de huisje doen nog het meeste afbreuk aan al het geploeter van de Urkers, Volendammers etc. Gelukkig ligt er een reddingsboot klaar.
Groet Rob

Dag Lars In the Gaspésie peninsula, Canada, old fishermen used to paint their houses of different vivid colors so they could easier align their boats from offshore with a known target. Of course the dwellings were separated by kilometers.
You show a pin-sharp fishing bourg so I could wander around and buy a vintage Dobbleman tobacco box in the souvenir shop, next to the red boat! Groeten

Hi Lars, very good view of these interesting and beautiful houses of the port, very well composed and captured in this good and beautiful photograph. An interesting image, with good clarity, light, color and quality. Very good and beautiful work perfectly done, my congratulations my friend. Thank you for sharing this interesting work.

Good night and happy week.
All the best from the south of Spain.

Hello Lars,
This harbor is so charming. I like the style of the houses, and the grass and fence in the foreground. I can imagine workers in this town being dressed up in clothes from the past to go along with the historic atmosphere.

Hi Lars
yeah I can see why you wanted to post this one. Its got that charm written all over it :)
and I take it your Mast photo was taken from those boats in the bg we see here? the cute buildings remind me of what we often see in Norway. fun shot, fun subject material.
