I was in Doel today and thoughtof you Roel

I know Doel quite well but it has been a while since I last was there.

Last time was in November 2018, when I took the Waterbus (river ferry services) from Antwerp City Centre to Kallo, and encountered two italians with rented bicycles who had heard of Doel and wanted to get there.  I guided them with my own bike through the harbour (from Kallo it is still a pretty long bike ride).


The town is much like a ghost town, abandoned by most of its inhabitants because of the unstoppable expansion of the harbour. A paradise for graffiti-lovers and as such a destination in its own right.

I like you second shot most, with that almost perfectly horizontal plume of cloud escaping from the cooling towers of Doel Nuclear Plant. I just wish that the cooling tower had had just a tiny bit more empty space on its left hand side. Now it feels a bit cramped against the frame edge.

That bird (a heron?) is a nice catch - the stuff for metaphors.
