hkskyline's 2009 AMSTERDAM Photo Collection #3

Zaanse Schans is located outside Amsterdam. Being in Holland, I needed to see windmills in the countryside, and here they were.



This is a very peaceful place, just a short train ride from the city.





This place has been turned into a windmill amusement park, with tour groups and all.



No matter, I had my fun watching them and exploring a few in detail.



Here's a Skyteam plane.







Here's a view from above.







Meanwhile ... back in the city :









Too bad the roads extend up to the canal's edge. It would've been nice if they had a sidewalk there, rather than asphalt and parking.





Anyone up for some lust?

Yeah those cars near the canal doesn´t look good...anyway Amsterdam is great. And that countryside images are beautiful and with those windmills they look like a painting
