We Need Minimal Views to Open our Minds

This week’s DP Photo Challenge asks for Minimalism.

While riding my bike on my way home, I used my iPhone 5 to capture this peaceful view from a bridge over the Amstel river, which crosses the city of Amsterdam.

    1. Hi Janet, the beer owes its name to the river. It is one of the brands of Heineken, but the brewing plant, which used to be in Amsterdam, is in another city, called Zoeterwoude. The plant was at the riverbank, and they used the ice from the river to control de temperature of the brewing process.

  1. I love your photo, water is a source of peace and tranquility for me. The ‘sticks’ are called pilings…perhaps from a long ago dock or building. I read that the Royal Palace of Amsterdam was built on 13,659 wooden piles.
