Photographer's Note

Winter in Haarlem

My first post of 2008! And I will start in my hometown. This is a photo taken from the same bridge as a picture that I uploaded almost a year ago and which was called Haarlem in the morning. That one was taken on an early winter morning, this one for almost two weeks ago, on the day when the Netherlands was covered by snow and ice. I captured this photo in the afternoon, when most snow and ice already was melted away, but the fine light, blue sky and calm water were still there.

The river you can see is called het Spaarne and runs through the centre of Haarlem.
The buildings you can see in this picture are, from the left to the right:
De Bakenessertoren, right next to it you find on the street corner de Waag (Weighing-House) and a little bit more to the right het Teylers Museum, the oldest public museum in The Netherlands.
For more information on the buildings, please visit the links.

Hope you like this view! :-)
