We walk back to the Brouwersgracht. A famous spot to make pictures is here the so called "' papeneiland" Papen is a nickname for Roman Catholics.
They held their secret ceremonies here in the time of the Reformation.

Amsterdam is always lovely, and with snow is even better.

At what time is dark now, 5 pm maybe?

Madrid. At 16.30 the sun leaves us here. at 16.50 the light are on.
Nice for taking pictures at the bridges. You need a tripod of course.

Dear Adriano,

The city is beautiful. especially now with the snow. Amsterdam has a lot of history and very nice place to photograph . I hope ypu will enjoy you stay here. But remember january is not the best time of the year to visit Amsterdam.You never know what kind of weather you will have at that time of the year.
