Sunset over Apeldoorn, the Netherlands

This is the city where i live (pop:155,000); not typically dutch in character, but nevertheless with some unique qualities such as the royal palace 'Het Loo', Apenheul ape zoo and a massive national forest park. Often, though, the city center gets forgotton by visitors due to the popularity of outlying attractions (aforementioned) - here are a few photo's of the 'skyline' and center at sunset and dusk.

1 Osseveld and Woudhuis; dutch post modern suburbs

2 Omnisportcentre, host to the 2011 indoor cycling world championship

3 Sunset looking towards the centre

4 Dusk sets in

8 'La tour' (75m) Apeldoorn's tallest office tower, stands solitarily in the north of the city

Cool, especially by night.
From where did you take this pictures? It must be from a high building.

quite high, 10 floors (so about 30m i guess). It's a large block of flats that is under renovation, whereby the entrance is temproarily being refurbished and therefore not locked!

Ok, so here are a couple more photo's, these ones before the sun went down:
