Settled as a small fishing village in the late 12th century, Amsterdam grew into one of the most important ports in the world by the 17th century. During this time, when immigration was at its peak, the Amsterdam canal system was created.
I must have taken a thousand photos of the canals of Amsterdam. Here are three of my favorite shots. What do you think? Do you have a favorite below?
Amsterdam Canal Photo #1. Boats in the canal peek through from the other side of a bridge.
Amsterdam Canal Photo #2. With autumn leaves framing the shot, boats line both sides of this canal.
Amsterdam Canal Photo #3. More prevalent than cars, bicycles line the sides of nearly every canal bridge in the city.
