The landmark of my choice

There is one landmark for me at the moment nearby my house I’m walking by almost every day to grab some Vitamin D during my daily walks. The landmark is a shipwreck called the Captain James Duffy.

Photography: Landmark – A competition by @lightcaptured ?

A while ago I’ve created a post about the shipwreck. A lot of people are taking pictures from it nowadays. This is because of a popular bicycle track that is leading towards it. The wreck is in the formal safe harbor from Hansweert.

The captain James A. Duffy is a formal small tow. One of its owners has been the American army and they used it for war tasks, like cleaning mines or military transportations. The ship was completely build out of wood and after the army usage it was sold. If you want to read more about this wreck you can see my older post about it.


The reason this is a famous landmark in my area is because of the bicycle track. The track is leading the people on their bike through a Nature 2000 area. So I would love to share some other images from the area before I show the image for the contest.

The picture for the contest

The day I took this picture I worked at home. At the moment I’m doing this everyday but at that time it wasn’t that regular. Sitting behind my desk I needed to clear my head and my inbox ? While having a lunchbreak I played along with an app called Photopills

I was looking at a function to see how the sun would go down for the golden hour and the specific angle it would have. I was looking at the shipwreck location nearby my home and at what time there the sunset would be. Photopills did mention me the right time and I checked the tide for today. Did seem that if the sun would come out and play the sunset would be perfect.

Well it turns out it was my lucky day! We finally had some sunshine again with a beautiful sunset. The light from the sun during sunset was shining over the shipwreck from the Captain James A. Duffy and creating a beautiful orange/yellow view.
