Best Industrial Photography Spots

Houtribsluizen

The Dutch and the sea, an never ending struggle. One place where this becomes visible is at the Houtribsluizen which happen to be an interesting photo location. One can argue whether or not constructions made of concrete and steel are beautiful or not. I guess it’s taste. On the other…
