Beschreibung

The name Kinderdijk is Dutch for "Children dike". During the Saint Elizabeth flood of 1421, the "Grote Hollandse Waard" flooded, but the Alblasserwaard polder stayed dry. It is said that when the terrible storm had subsided, someone went to the dike between these two areas to see what could be saved. In the distance he saw a wooden cradle floating on the water. As it came nearer, some movement was detected. A cat was seen in the cradle trying to keep it in balance by jumping back and forth so that no water could get into it. As the cradle eventually came close enough to the dike for a bystander to pick up the cradle, he saw that a baby was quietly sleeping inside it, nice and dry. The cat had kept the cradle balanced and afloat. This folktale and legend has been published as "The Cat and the Cradle" in English.The mills at Kinderdijk pump water to keep the land from flooding.

Tim Abeln ProfilfotoWelcome! I am a Dutch photographer who just loves to go out and capture the beautiful world around us. Most of my photos are landscapes, animals and flowers. I started doing photography in 2015. Since then my perception has changed, I started seeing different things, started seeing the world in different ways. I always enjoyed a nice walk in the forest, it just seems more beautiful now. I hope you will enjoy my photos. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or requests.
