Photographer's Note

The dutch word for trees like these is 'knotwilgen'. In old days the young branches of the willow were used for all sorts of purposes. Every year the new branches were cut off and the top of the tree thickened. This kind of trees can still be found everywhere in the Netherlands along the waterfront and although the use of the willowbranchers is not as it was, the tradition of cutting still exist to keep the charasteristic trees.
