As a landscape photographer, I always travel a lot, especially this year. But I’m always happy to be back home in Amsterdam! I can never get enough of photographing the beauty of this city.

The canals and buildings are just so photogenic. I just love to walk through the city in the evening especially. When the lights turn on, everything just looks magical! 

1. The typical Amsterdam canal houses reflecting in the canal in the evening.

3. The sun always sets into different canals. It's always a beautiful sight to see it set right in the middle on this particular location on the Leidse Gracht.

8. I love the city during winter. This was shot in January this year when we had some moderate snowfall (not as heavy as in 2017). The snow with the lights on the trees makes for a magical atmosphere.

9. Autumn 2018. The trees turn yellow while the flowers are still there. There are often beautiful flowers around the city that are taken care of through the year, except for winter.

12. Another photo of the snowfall earlier this year. We had only 1 day of proper snow in the city but it was enough to get some winter spots.

14. You’ll see bikes in our city everywhere. I liked this playful composition of 2 bike wheels with the westerkerk in the middle.

15. Another photo of the Westerkerk taken with an extreme wide-angle lens. By playing with the lines on the roads and pavement, I created this interesting composition.
