Canals and Bridges of Amsterdam
All canals were connected and this huge waterway network existed from seventeenth century. The city has three main canals, Herengracht, Prinsengracht, and Keizersgracht, and they form concentric belts around the city, known as the Grachtengordel. Recently, in 2010, this was placed in the prestigious list of UNESCO World Heritage Site. An aerial view here would give a better idea.
While I cruised along the canals, I managed to get some captures of the bridges. Series of bridges, one after the other, they made interesting frames, only I had to be quick to capture the sight. This one has six bridges in a row.
These arched bridges should look mesmerizing lighted up with colored lights at night. The draw bridges allow passage of ships and bigger boats. In totally still water, with absolutely no ripples the bridges and their reflections would be making a perfect circle I imagined.
