IJdoorn, midwinter
Originally uploaded by Nescio.
The old lighthouse of Amsterdam called: ‘IJdoorn’, or ‘Hoek van het IJ’. From 1700 to the end of the 19 th century it was a stone structure, but this one is made of iron in the fashion of the industrial revolution. It stands on a small island, overlooking a polder near Durgerdam. The polder is a nature reserve where a lot of birds can be seen.
