Industrial Nature off the Road in Tilburg
Since about a month I have myself a new job in Tilburg, The Netherlands. As a result, I now travel 150 kilometers to and from work each day, straight across the southern farmlands of Holland to my hometown and world port city of Rotterdam. Every now and than I cross parts of the country I had never seen before, and they offer me a traditional insight in a traditional region. Tilburg will probably become the industrial city of the future, it’s home to a strip of nature of which I cannot determine whether it’s man-made or natural. The forests and industrial growth seem to blend in with each other naturally. The winter season contributes to this rusty impression. Here are some amazing photos of the location.
The strip of nature is located near the neighborhood called ‘Reeshof’, one of the newer parts in West-Tilburg. It runs along a bicycle track which bikers and joggers use daily to get around or get fit.
Tilburg is located in a very old forest area of The Netherlands. It's roots are visible at the border of the city, where the winter trees hide hundreds of farms, distribution centers and factories that lie beyond it

What do you think, are these kind of areas pretty? I have my doubts. But one thing I think many will see is that it’s definitely impressive!
