Storm Clouds Gather Over Zandvoort

Most people agree that the best Zandvoort weather is when it is sunny, warm and dry. That is when you get to see the place at its best - alive with colour and activity with Zandvoort beach playing host to tens of thousands of people.

However, one of the most atmospheric experiences on Zandvoort beach is when there is a storm approaching.

This photograph was taken late afternoon on a summer's day when the weather was just beginning to turn. The horizon gradually grew darker and shadows rather than sunshine began to invade the beach.

The wide view of the horizon when it changes so dramatically like this is a wonderful sight to behold ... but once we had taken this shot, we quickened our pace and ran into one of the beach cafes quickly to avoid getting wet!
