I joined in January the Monthly Photo Challenge: The Changing Seasons, which runs from the 7th to the 15th day of the month throughout the year, hosted by Cardinal Guzman.
I’m of course shooting some of the same places in Amsterdam as I did in previous months and adding new ones to give you a taste of the city canals, which are not yet very busy with boats at this time of the year.
Temps are still chilly but Spring is in the air. Days are longer and sunnier. People are going outdoors and enjoying themselves in parks, cafes or simply sitting in benches along the canals. Tourists are as always everywhere to be seen.
Here is my March gallery. Enjoy it and let me know what you think. I learn a lot from every comment you make, and I also love talking to you.
If you want to compare, click here to see the gallery I made for The Changing Seasons #2.
In this gallery you can see the following places:
- Amstel river; the city has been named after it.
- Typical Canals and Amsterdam houses
- The Dam Palace at Dam square; a busy place throughout the year.
- Views of the Borneo Eiland canals – in the new and modern area of the East harbor, just 5-10 min from the center.
- The Black bird which I was lucky to shoot at a peaceful street
- The Begijnhof is one of the oldest inner courts in the city of Amsterdam. A group of historic buildings, mostly private dwellings, centre on it. As the name suggests, it was originally a Béguinage.
- Hermitage Museum
- City Hall and Opera House
- Skinny Bridge
