Photographer's Note

The late afternoon sunlight still lighting up the upper facade of Saint Nicholas Cathedral, opposite Central Station in Amsterdam. The vertical axis is aligned on the left of the twin spires. Built in the late 19th century, this church escaped the 16th century destruction of images and statues ("beeldstorm" of 1566) when zealots defaced any icons/statues they could find, in many of the churches, not just in Holland, but throughout many other places in Europe.
