Default 4K Time Lapse of a Boat Navigating Dutch Canals

There are two types of people in the world: Those who are excited by a headline reading “4K Time Lapse of a Boat Navigating Dutch Canals,” and those who are not excited by a headline reading “4K Time Lapse of a Boat Navigating Dutch Canals.”

Put me in the former. This is pretty impressive. Recorded in 2013.

Dvorak, in case you were wondering (credits at the end).

The speed that some of those barges travel through those narrow canals is impressive.

That's the most relaxed I've felt on a long time - thank you! Yes, I'd love to know what he was towing. A yacht maybe? Something tall and not very long.

Maybe not a yacht - comments say the camera was 30m high!

Ah I didn't see that. Maybe a barge with a crane.

Yes, 30 meters is almost 100 feet. Very high, in other words.

According to the credits, the video was commissioned by Shell & Spie, both in the oil and gas business, so the load was probably not a yacht.

A barge stacked so high it looks tipsy.
