Velvet moments: dreamy sunset in Amsterdam

I was on my way home from dinner when I passed this canal in Amsterdam’s city centre. I always enjoy catching a glimpse of this view when I cycle across the bridge but this scene forced me to brake hard. As I gazed at the colours of this gorgeous sunset in Amsterdam, I was joined by others who happened to pass by. We stood there quietly on the bridge, totally mesmerised by the golden hues in the serene canal, with the two towers of the Rijksmuseum as a backdrop. Simply magical!

    I love the beauty in how you talk about Amsterdam. Amsterdam has long been one of my favorite cities and you’re increasing my wanderlust! By the way, you’re writing has been phenomenal lately!

    Was browsing through your blog and discovered this entry. It made me instantly nostalgic – I’m from Amsterdam originally but haven’t been back in more than a decade. This is a beautiful picture, thanks for sharing!
