Boatmen are ready to leave

ADM-Haven Amsterdam, January 20, 2013 4.39 pm

Despite the blizzard the boatmen of  “De Koperen Ploeg” have to do their job. I wanted to see the harbour during bad weather. So we drove the car on the slippery road to the Port of Amsterdam. Nobody was outside. At the office of “De Koperen Ploeg” I got permission to take pictures of the surroundings. I took some pictures but it was very cold, wet and slippery. The snow hurt my eyes. I didn’t get permission to sail with the boatmen, because it was too dangerous. I was a little disappointed because I want to take pictures of the difficult circumstances they have during wintertime, but I understand that safety for all people is most important.
