The Lighthouse of Texel and the dune landscape around it

During our short vacation on our largest Wadden Island Texel, we drove to the Eierland lighthouse and made several pictures of the landscape of that area.
The lighthouse is the most important landmark of the island, situated at the most northern point of Texel. It is said that when you go straight north from that point you will have only sea until you reach the North Pole.

We wanted to see the dry sandbanks of the Wadden Sea (and we saw them) but we also saw a small dune lake and went out of the car to make some pictures. 

Of course we were on Texel at the end of winter and the colours are a bit different then, but I decided to 'imagine' an early spring for my watercolour.
I chose to use a portrait format this time to give the Eierland Lighthouse some more attention.
