The Netherlands - December 8th, 2010

Several bodies of water in the Netherlands can be observed here: the Wadden Sea (top), the IJsselmeer (right) and the Markermeer (bottom, center). The latter two are shallow lakes, and appear covered in ice.

The Wadden Sea and the IJsselmeer are separated by the Afsluitdijk, a major causeway running from Den Oever on Wieringen in North Holland province, to the village of Zurich (mun. Wûnseradiel) in Friesland province.

The IJsselmeer and the Markermeer are separated by the Houtribdijk, a dike that connects the cities of Lelystad and Enkhuizen.
