Keukenhof

In my Top photography list for Amsterdam I mention Keukenhof as one of the must visit locations there. If you never heard of Keukenhof, it’s a huge park filled with tulips. It’s just beautiful (ant this is coming from a person that does not really care that much about flowers :)). And as Keukenhof just opened few days ago for their 2019 season, here are few photos from the last years to motivate you for a visit. I hope to visit it again this year, but not sure yet if I manage. Maybe if I have some work in Amsterdam.

More and more tulips

Canals in Amsterdam

I’m so tired today. Spend a lot of yesterday in trains and travel always makes me so tired. But one has to work, so what can one do :). So a bit later update today, but I hope you like it.

This is a vertorama taken at the most popular photography spot in Amsterdam. There are always photographers there, photographing the canals
I still don’t have a nice sunset shot form it though. And tried to get one at least 10 times already. I even once booked a stay in house 3 minutes away, just so I can be there really quickly. Still, no luck. Will have to try again.

This is a 2 shot vertorama, each shot from 3 exposures, blended and edited in Photoshop.

In the center of Amsterdam

This part of Amsterdam is very busy. The photo was taken right from the street that almost everyone take to get to the main train stations. And if you were ever in Netherland, you would know that they use trains a lot. Always I was there, the street was crazy full. But you can’t really tell from this photo :)

I took quite a few photos in this area over the years, but I never liked any. Even this one is a bit boring, with the clear blue sky. But I never really had luck with sunset in Amsterdam anyway. But of course, I will try again next time.

This is a two shot panorama, each shot from two exposures. Blended and combined in Photoshop.

And here are few details:

Evening walk under the John Frost bridge

I really like to take photos of the John Frost bridge in Arnhem. And not only because I like photos of bridges in general. It’s just so colorful at night, with a perfect reflection. And you can even get under it.

I took this photo few years back. I was on a ship docked nearby and I had some time so I went to take few photos during the sunset. It was a bit of a strange walk. A short while after I took this photo, the two cars you can see in the distance, started drag racing. Not sure if that was the best location to do that, but luckily, as it was early in the year, there were very few ships there, and no one around. Still, not the smartest thing to do.

This is a blend from three exposures. I think it’s quite obvious that this was taken with a fish-eye lens. No, this is not a panorama, but I ended cropping it into a more wider aspect ratio. The sky was just boring and I had too much of the foreground, both taking away from the main part of the image, the bridge. Blended and edited in Photoshop.

Blue morning in Rotterdam

Today I tried to decide if I should go out to take photos or not. The clouds showed promise. In the end I decided to go and go up to the Old town hall tower to get some photos of the Christmas markets. And I really had luck with the sunset, as today it was just beautiful. But, I still have to edit the photos, so I show it to you probably tomorrow :)

And until then, here is a photo from the center of Rotterdam in Netherlands. I was on a ship there, that was docked not far away from this spot, so I decided to try some sunrise photos. And this was taken during the morning blue hour. This is a blend of three exposures, done in Photoshop.
