Pumping mill in green heart

The area between the large Dutch cities Amsterdam, The Hague and Utrecht is called the Green Heart. Since it’s largely below sea level, pumping mills like this Kockengense Molen performed their duty for centuries. The mill was built in 1675. Nowadays the pumping is done with electric power.

The stripes in the sky originate from airplane traffic around Schiphol.

The erupting sunrays are the result of timing right at sundown and a small aperture (high f value).
