The Friday Photo #91 – Clouds over the canal

Amsterdam canal

Of all the things I love about Amsterdam I think it’s the canals that grab me the most.  Beautiful and ever-changing, they form an integral part of life in the Dutch city and I’d love to live in a houseboat on one even if just for a week or two.

One of the city’s other distinguishing features is its ever changing weather.  Less than five minutes after taking this shot those clouds decided to dump their contents on my head…

    Spent a week in Amsterdam last year - and seriously it is my favourite European city. The canals, the bikes, the wonky buildings and the overall sense of peace and harmony - I am going back there sometime for longer.

    I hope to live in Amsterdam for a stretch sometime in my life. I love the bikes and the laid back, happy people. It's hard to live in Europe as an American but I'd love to try and learn Dutch. My great-grandparents immigrated from Holland to the USA and they let the language go in their efforts to learn English. I know a few words but that's all.

Would you like to share your thoughts?
