Wonderful John. For a person with salt water in my veins this sight and light of the sea and the light house is recognisable. Yet, a little bit different than similar sights in the Netherlands or Copenhagen like Karl mentioned. It has the charm of New England and New Hampshire in that like you say. This image and that place is unique, like my own dear old Walcheren Peninsula in the Zeeland Province in the Netherlands is unique. Each place is unique. The New England states are unique, because they have the combination of mountains, lakes, forest, countrysides and coastal views like you show here. I have never been there, but it must be familiar for some Europeans. I come from flatlands, and love rocks, mountains, large woods and charming little ports and large harbours.
Some more for people with salt water in their veins.
Wonderful images John, I get Pan-North-West European feelings with these photo's. It looks very Scandinavian to me.
The photo above could be a part of the harbour area in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Antwerp, Hamburg, Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm and Reykjavik. What is reconisable for me in the wonderful photo below is the rusty metal, old broken concrete with rust marks, and the rust marks on the stone wall. That is the charm, picturesque, and a typical harbour city or town element you find everywhere in ports and cities with a harbour John. Next to old abandoned anchors, ship wrecks, large oil impregnated ropes, tins, metal panels, ship's screws and nuts and propellers. The stones and rocks at the beach are also typical for harbour towns. In Vlissingen these are Scandinavian dark blue black stones, in your image these are North-American local. The houses in the distance seem to be Cobalt blue. Is it typical for that region?
I imagine the sound of the ocean sea (or is it a lake?) in the distance, maybe some seagulls flying over with some other local birds, and the sound of harbour activities and traffic in the dinstance too. And there you have also the sound of the wind in the trees. We lack those trees at our coastal shores over here. New England and New Hampshire in it surely has it charms and unique character. It's the mix of local people and a region which makes a place what it is.
