Photographer's Note

A large part of the Netherlands forms the delta of some of Europe's well known rivers. To cross these rivers (and the canals) you can find many small ferries all over the country. Many of these ferries are connected to the shore by cables to prevent them from drifting in the (strong) currents of the rivers.

This photo was taken through the open side window of my car while crossing the Lek river near Culemborg.
This ferry is connected to a fixed anchor point in the river (at the point of the white star) to prevent it from drifting. The small boats are there to protect the cables between the ferry and the anchor point.
The "Reddingskist" (rescue box) contains the life saving equipment in case of an emergency.
