Bike Ride from Amsterdam to Broek in Waterland

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This afternoon I went for a bike ride to enjoy an unusual warm and sunny Autumn day.

I chose one of my preferred racing bike paths, starting in Amsterdam and heading north via Durgerdam, alongside the Ijmeer until Uitdam. From there I rode through the farmland – stopping only to make photos of the landscape – until I reached Broek in Waterland. I came back home still in time to watch the sunset at the Java Eiland in Amsterdam. I am ready for a good weekend.

    1. Thanks, Wendy. I’m glad it was a lovely day; photos from an iPhone would have been much worse.
      We have the same favorite photo. I made over 10 photos of them capturing the moves of the one standing; she wasn’t happy with my presence. I may have disturbed the aftermath of an argument!


    1. Thanks Andrea; sometimes am amazed with my iPhone camera as I use no filter. The sunlight helped though. It would have been great to ride along with you; my husband joins me often but this one I did alone.


      1. I take all my photos on my iPhone too. It’s pretty amazing how far the technology has come. I use filters from time to time, but like you said, with that great sunlight you get beautiful pics! I think there’s something to be said for a solitary ride every once in a while. Company is nice, but alone time can be nicer 🙂


        1. It’s indeed. I still keep – for sentimental reasons – an ‘oldie’ professional Nikon, lenses, and filters, acquired at the time I studied photography. Since digital tech came out and exponentially advanced, I am equally making photos on mobile and non-mobile cameras. There are good apps and pic editors as well, which I may use more often from now on, as am afraid that fall has officially started… bringing gray and rainy days!

          You’re so right about solitary rides; and that’s when I make reflections and get also ideas for my work projects. In fact because most of my rides are solo, that’s why sometimes I wish I had company to share what am experiencing.


  1. I’m so jealous! Not only has autumn hit us suddenly with chilly temperatures here, but my bike also has a broken spoke and I haven’t had the opportunity to get it fixed. Glad you had a good time and thank you for sharing.


    1. So, you’re a biker too. Glad to know that; fix the spoke, and let’s share photos of our rides. Don’t be jealous, a chilly and rainy week has started…thanks for dropping by. I am happy to hear you liked the photos.
