Een experiment met het nemen van een panoramafoto. De molen staat in een bocht van het Spaarne.

The windmill "De Adriaan" stands in a curve of the river Spaarne. It's a replica from 2002 of the original windmill from 1779. That one was destroyed by fire in 1932.

De Haarlemse molen ‘De Adriaan’ brandde op 23 april 1932 af maar staat sinds november 2000 weer fier op zijn oude plek aan het Spaarne. Op 23 april 2002, dus precies 70 jaar na de brand, is de molen heropend.

 

De Adriaan is a windmill in the Netherlands that burnt down in 1932 and was rebuilt in 2002. The original windmill dates from 1779 and the mill has been a distinctive part of the skyline of Haarlem for centuries.

 

De Adriaan was built on the foundations of the Goevrouwetoren, or Goede Vrouwtoren (Goodwife Tower), a tower that used to be part of the city's defences. The towers were located on the river Spaarne, on each side, and historically they were defending the city from possible attackers over the water. The Goevrouwetorenr was demolished in 1779 to make way for the windmill, as the towers were no longer useful for the defence of the city. The city border had moved to the north, and building on the foundations of the old tower would make it easy to build the windmill as high as possible, which would be efficient to catch wind. De Adriaan was officially opened on May 19, 1779.

 

Ursprünglich 1778 errichtet, nach einem Brand 1932 zerstört und erst ca. 70 Jahre danach wieder errichtet.

For the first time in 19 years the Spaarne river completely froze up; a little bit down the river it was a skating paradise

A planned meet up with Harro at Molen de Adriaan for sunrise and the colours in the sky made the morning trek worth the effort!

The perfect place to make a pano in Haarlem with the rebuilt mill "de Adriaan"

 

Al sinds het begin van de nieuwbouw naast De Adriaan wist ik dat het nieuwe wijkje een prachtige uitkijk op de molen zou bieden. Helemaal toen vorig jaar de steigers in het water tussen beide werden geplaatst. Echter, toen de bouwwerkzaamheden eenmaal op hun eind liepen, stond De Adriaan plotseling in de steigers. En alsof dat nog niet genoeg was, wilde het weer niet meewerken nadat de steigers eindelijk waren verwijderd. Gisteravond, echter, was het dan eindelijk zover: een heldere lucht en relatief stil water. Ruim op tijd voor het blauwe uurtje stond ik op de nieuwe Kelderwindkade, met een nieuw, uniek uitzicht op de molen en over het Spaarne. Een uitzicht dat geenszins teleurstelde. Haarlem heeft er een prachtig fotoplekje bij, dat z’n belofte mijns inziens nu al volledig heeft ingelost. Ik ga hier zeker nog vaker komen.

 

Het thema van deze week is overigens rule of thirds. Loop de lijnen maar na; ik denk niet dat ik de regel veel beter had kunnen naleven.

 

At last

 

Ever since construction began next to De Adriaan, I knew the new quarter would offer a beautiful view on the windmill. Especially when, last year, the jetties in the water between the two were installed. But, just when construction work was nearly finished, De Adriaan was practically enclosed by scaffoldings. And if that wasn't enough, the weather wasn't very cooperative once the scaffoldings were finally removed. Yesterday night, though, everything finally came together: a clear sky and relatively still water. Well in time for the blue hour I stood at the new Kelderwindkade, with a new, unique view on the windmill and over the river Spaarne. A view that in no way disappointed. Haarlem gained a beautiful photo spot, the promise of which I think is already fulfilled. I will surely be coming here more often.

 

This week's theme, by the way, is rule of thirds. Check the lines; I don't think I could have adhered to the rule much better.

This was De Adriaan windmill in Haarlem, Northern Holland, just after sunset. I managed a long exposure which helped to capture the building lights on the river water. I also like the way the lights themselves came out.

De Adriaan is a windmill in the Netherlands that burnt down in 1932 and was rebuilt in 2002. The original windmill dates from 1779 and the mill has been a distinctive part of the skyline of Haarlem for centuries.

 

The windmill was built on the foundations of the Goevrouwetoren by Adriaan de Booys, an industrial producer from Amsterdam. The Goevrouwetoren, or Goede Vrouwtoren (Goodwife Tower), had been the northern support of the city's Catrijnenpoort, a defencework over the River Spaarne. By the late 18th century, the gate was redundant due to the expansion of the city, and de Booys bought the tower and the land around it from the municipality of Haarlem on April 24, 1778. By reinforcing the foundations with wooden supporting poles, the mill was built to 34 metres above the level of the river, and above the surrounding city. De Adriaan was officially opened on May 19, 1779.

 

De Booys was granted permission to build a windmill to produce cement, paint, and tanbark. The windmill was built under the supervision of miller Henricus Ruijsch from Waddinxveen. De Booy earned the concession to be the sole producer of cement in the city for 25 years.

 

De Booys sold the windmill to Cornelis Kraan in 1802. The monopoly on cement had not been as lucrative as De Booys had hoped for; a competitor evaded the law by importing cement from Dordrecht. The windmill was sold for 1650 guilders, and Kraan converted the mill into a tobacco mill, to produce tobacco snuff. Kraan already owned a tobacco shop, at the Grote Houtstraat.

 

In 1865 a steam engine was placed in the windmill by the then owner, J. van Berloo, but this was not a commercial success. In 1925 the windmill was bought for 12,100 guilders by the Dutch windmill society Vereniging De Hollandsche Molen to prevent demolition.

Spaarne met zicht op de molen de Adriaan 2009

This is a night shot after sunset during blue hours. I stitched together 3x24MP pictures. I did minimal post processing, just some dodge and burning. Comments welcomed

Transition time...

The seagulls are slowly getting back their black summerhead and the mill behind is changing skin too...

I had to do another version of this mill, I have an entire series from this point ready to be made into a giant panorama, but that is too much work for today.

 

Here is BW HDR version... lol why not ;-)

 

And I prefer the B+W once again, If I were to choose a print for my house it would be the b+w.... why ... I dont know
