Words by Dalene Heck / Photos by Pete Heck

I dare you to try and be in Amsterdam for a week and not take hundreds of photos. Each turn in the city offers another great view from another angle that you didn’t see a few minutes earlier.

And of course, each of these Amsterdam photos, with every change in lighting, give a whole new perspective…

  1. Amsterdam is a great place, one can take as many pictures as possible, and yet there will be so much more left to capture the next time he goes there.

    thanks for sharing the picture, the night time pictures are particularly excellent,

    1. we are really trying to cut down on quantity and increase quality. I hear you about how expensive memory was back then, now it’s dirt cheap. Thanks for the comment Gerard 🙂

    1. Thanks Natalie. I think Dalene told you that we’re coming to Turkey next year, I hope we have the chance to meet 🙂

    1. Cheers Andrea, it’s too bad that you had rain, but from what everybody told us, that’s Amsterdam in autumn. Too bad we couldn’t meet up again 🙁

    1. It is such a cool city, I would love to see the canals frozen and some snow in the city. That would make some incredible photos.

  2. Beautiful photos! I agree that Amsterdam is beautiful with infinite photo opportunities. We visited 6 years ago with a basic point-and-shoot camera. I’d love to go back with a nicer camera!
