Hoofddorp (8x) & Schiphol Airport (33x)

Despite the bad weather I decided to go outside and test my new camera, a Canon Eos 450D.
First I went to take some pictures in my city. Luckily there was still some ice on the water for nice effects.
After that I went to Schiphol, I'm glad I live just next to it.
So you will find a few pics from Hoofddorp and many pictures from Schiphol Amsterdam International Airport. Enjoy!

It's a big airport for sure! But I thought the building was not so impressive when I was there.
