Pier Scheveningen, The Hague, Netherlands

Pier Scheveningen, The Hague, Netherlands

A long exposure shot of the “Scheveningen Pier”, a decaying Dutch landmark…

Scheveningen, the coastal resort town of The Hague, boasts the largest pier in the Netherlands, completed in 1961. A crane, built on top of the pier’s panorama tower, provided the opportunity to make a 60-metre (200 ft) high bungee jump over the North Sea waves. The present pier is a successor of an earlier pier, which was completed in 1901 but in 1943 destroyed by the German occupation forces 1.
Unfortunately this structure is closed to the public since October 2013 because of serious safety issues and it’s future is unknown…
