Hello Thorkil,I guess this is an sort of old village, Bart, but not for farming/farmers it looks like?
Just for living I guess, with each small gardens for each house..
A very nice sort of old communitive-living/building , in the socalled Close-low way of building, and looking good..
Do you know the historic way behind?
In the 14th century there were frequent breaches of the dykes, giving the brackish water free rein again. The residents of Marken tried to protect themselves better by erecting more mounds. These were called yards. Originally, Marken consisted of the neighborhoods Monnikenwerf and Kloosterwerf. The latter was swallowed up by the water. Monnikenwerf later became part of the current Kerkbuurt.
At the height of the mounds there were 27 yards on the island. Over the centuries, twelve of them have been swallowed up by the water. In 2012, of the fifteen remaining yards, twelve are inhabited and one is a cemetery. The inhabitants of Marken increasingly focused on fishing, which in the 17th and 18th centuries increasingly became the main means of livelihood. As a result, there was a strong population growth.
Hi BartHello Thorkil,
These clusters of buildings originate from the time when flooding was a serious thread and so the houses were build on mounds.
You could try to translate to English or Danish the Dutch Wikipedia page (or parts of it) regarding Marken.
Thanks for reporting Don. I have the Canon 24 TSE and Kipon adapter that I used previously on the GFX 50r and I'm still waiting for my 100s to arrive, but good to know that this combo also works well on the 100s. I also used the adapter with a 16-35 f/4 L and it worked well on the 50r.Testing the GFX100s with a Canon 24mm TSE and Kipon smart adaptor I just got late yesterday. This is the result of 2-captures, 1 centered 1-raised then stitched in PS. No processing other than to crop out a small white line on the bottom sides due to incorrect camera placement. No vignette on any frames taken so far and more importantly the Kipon adaptor work flawlessly. f/8 1/160 ISO 50. I'm a very happy camper after waiting for several years...

Very pleased with both the lens and Kipon. My major concern on using the lens was finding an adaptor that would work seamlessly and the Kipon does. I also just received a Fotodiox Pro Fusion Smart adaptor and also tried it out this morning and found it works just as well. I like the Kipon slightly more as it seems to be easier to use. I'll keep the Fotodiox as a spar for awhile (think belt and suspenders)Thanks for reporting Don.
