Recorded from the balcony of a beach-hut at Dutch coast.

picture from recording position of my rented beach-hut in Holland

Some older kids play baseball close. Right little Dutch boys playing before the have to go to there beds (on the beach).

This is a sandy beach. The waves are just 20 cm high and are about hundred meters away. It's low tide. The wind is west north-west 3bft (right from the microphone). Klankbeeld how do you know? Well, just look here:

On 5km the deep humming sound of the container cargo ship the MSC GAIA coming from Antwerp with destination Rotterdam. The ship is 366 m long and has a gross tonnage of 151559 ton. The engine must be enormous. The ship is sailing only 7 knots. How do you know this klankbeeld? Well, try
More ships audible during this recording. Listen how the ships humming fades in and out during the recording ans how far the low-frequency sounds carry over the water. During this recording it moves about 5-6 km.

This sea is actually the estuary of the Schelde river in Hollands. The gate to the large harbour of Antwerp in Belgium.

Recorded: Westduin beach, Dishoek, Holland (the Netherlands)
