Photographer's Note

Waterway running 31 km between Ghent (B) and the Western Scheldt estuary at Terneuzen (N).
The canal was built in 1824-27 and was many times reconstructed in the 20th century, and last reopened in 1968 to enable Ghent's port to take 60,000 ton ships.
This picture was taken to the Belgian direction .You see the bridge at Zelzate and in the background the blast furnaces from the steel factory Sidmar.
A lock system at Terneuzen provides passage between the canal and the estuary.
