Hello Agneta, thank you. I am delighted that you liked this photo, it was the yellow clog that caught my eye :)

Warm greetings from Norway, Amelia

It is a curious clog François, but then it is Amsterdam after all. I wonder if it would be stable enough to sail in down the canals?

Amitiés, Amelia

Long ago when I joined a painters holiday in ENKHAUSEN, I spotted a canoe/kayak moored to a canal barge in the town, the canoe had a 'garden' in it with a bay tree and herbs growing! wish I'd had ma wee camera then!

Good canal view from Amsterdam, very nice light and colours (with the little yellow extra) and nice boats, trees and houses. Hälsningar, Mats.

Dear Amelia, I know Amsterdam is always worth a visit and this view of one of those hundreds canals and boats is really beautiful, and there are so nice reflections. I hope you had a good time there :))

Best wishes, uni*

In Drammen there is a tree growing in a small boat in the river Bonnie Lad - I don't know if it is intentional though. I love the idea of a canoe with a garden in it, but I somehow don't think Mats would approve ;)

Hello Mats, thank you. There are 100os of photos of this city on Google Earth, and it was difficult to find something a bit more unusual :))

Beste hilsener, Amelia

Many thanks dear uni*. We did have a nice time here, and walked around the canal network for 2 whole days - getting lost sometimes, as one bridge with bicycles and a canal is very similar to the next bridge with bicycles and a canal!

Warm wishes, Amelia

Well spotted Amelia,

It certainly is a different view of the canals of Amsterdam. I LIKE it.

All the best Mick

Good morning dear Ahmet, yes I think you'd enjoy a visit to Amsterdam, but be prepared to get lost in the spiderweb of canals and bridges. I wish my little Nikon had a GPS in it, I think I may have misplaced some photos, particularly like this one.

Greetings to you in your office in Skopje, Amelia

Amelia Royan on November 28, 2011

Thanks Mick. Who could resist this yellow clog, and where else could we be but The Netherlands? :)

Cheers, Amelia

This is also a great shot, Amelia! Looking at the thumbnail I instantly knew this must be in Holland!:) Never seen a clog boat before. It's very original! Makes me wish to visit Amsterdam again, because I haven't been there for a very long time! Best regards, Anne

Amelia Royan on December 1, 2011

Thank you dear Anne, yes - instantly recognisable even in the thumbnail. Amsterdam is worth a visit at any time of the year, and is so easy to photograph. Which of course means that there are 1000s of photos on Google Earth!

Warm wishes, Amelia

A combination of the classical with the unusual. You have achieved your goal with this one, Amelia.


Amelia Royan on December 5, 2011

Good morning dear Ian, or maybe I should say goodnight. Yes I think this is what everyone thinks of when they visit Amsterdam - boats and canals! Thank you for your lovely comment. We had 2 days in the city and enjoyed it very much.

Warm wishes for Advent, Amelia
