Schokland

schokland-large

Image a narrow island, just a few meters above sea level. Some villages and a fishing port.

Now replace the sea with grassland, as far as the eye can see. And replace the sloshing of water with — silence.

There you go, this is the former Dutch island of Schokland (’shock land’). The island is still there, but the sea is gone.

A very quiet spot, surrealistic and poetic. The former fishing port is my contribution to this week’s WordPress photo challenge: Silence.
