HEATHER AND BLUE

The Bourtanger Moor (Dutch: Bourtangerveen/Bourtangermoeras) (German: Bourtanger Moor) was a bog in eastern parts in the Dutch provinces of Drenthe and Groningen and the bordering German districts of Bentheim and Emsland. A remaining stretch on the border between Drenthe and the districts Emsland and Betheim is now a nature reserve, the Internationaler Naturpark Bourtanger Moor-Bargerveen.

Where the peat was harvested, still bog waters now produce millions of mosquitos. Bargerveen Nature Reserve in the province of Drenthe in the Netherlands.
