Photographer's Note

Amsterdam has been called the "Venice of the North" for its more than one hundred kilometres of canals, about 90 islands and 1500 bridges. The three main canals, Herengracht, Prinsengracht, and Keizersgracht, dug in the 17th century during the Dutch Golden Age, form concentric belts around the city. Alongside the main canals are 1550 monumental buildings.

Another "boat+reflection" shot, here we see reflections of some modern (and probably not monumental;) buildings in one of Amsterdam canals. The text on top belongs to one of numerous canal cruise boats and here is meant to symbolize the very international character of present-day Amsterdam.
