Bemuurde Weerd and Weerdsluis in Utrecht

Art code: 43 137 Copy the art code

Donker Utrecht Profile picture The Weerdsluis lock forms the connection between the Utrecht city canal and the Vecht. The lock was built in the Middle Ages to maintain the water level in the Utrecht canal and canal system. Around the sluice, a suburb called Bemuurde Weerd, which was itself walled and fenced in, emerged as early as 1300. Many small craft businesses settled here. In shipping, the Vecht was an important link between Amsterdam and the Rhine River.

The photo was taken in the misty dusk of 16 November 2010, Dark Utrecht. That's the name of my series of photos of Utrecht places after sunset. Most Dark Utrecht photos were shot at dusk. See the entire Dark Utrecht collection at www.donkerutrecht.nl

Dark Utrecht. That's the name of my still growing series of photos of Utrecht places after sunset. Most of the Dark Utrecht pictures I take in the evening twilight. In the 'blue quarter' to be more precise. After sunset the sky quickly turns an intense dark blue and at some point a perfect balance is created between sky light on the one hand and street and building lighting on the other hand.

Characteristic for my style is the balance in the often tranquil image, the rich, intense colours and the absence of chaos.
