Made yesterday this shot from a part of Almere town and spotted this black spot in the sky. First I thought a spot on my sensor but
Its a magpie. After good looking I discovered also 2 gulls.
Today camera's are really good. ( panasonic GX1 with 20 1.7)

I am not sure but on this place in the amsterdam nieuwmarkt area ( J.B.Sibbeleshof) were houses removed for the construction of the amsterdam metro. As a reminder are some keys from the front doors of the demolished houses put in the pavement. A nice one for signs, signs here.

The Water Gate in Sneek. Build in 1492 and rebuild in 1613 because it had lost its purpose as military defense in the wall. From the six original water gates this is the only one that exist today in Sneek. The other 5 were removed in the 19th century. One for weekend reflections here.

Sunlight falling through a 17th century window in the Portuguese Synagog Amsterdam.
Its a pity that blogger makes the picture lighter so that the original dark, light contrast is a bit blown away. On my original the white of the wall was not showing. Tried different solutions but until now without succes.

Thousands of Barnacle geese choose the sky bothered by foxes in the Oostvaardersplassen . They are wintering here from their nesting island Nova Zembla .
The above picture is a crop from this one. It was a mighty view. Every 10 minutes somewhere a flock was taking the air and landed again. Its a matter of days now before they go back to their breeding grounds. One for skywatch friday here.

In this little canal in Sneek lives a Great Crested Grebe.
He was so kind to catch a little perch before my eyes.
Water quality is really very good here in Sneek but I must admit that you see them also in the canals of Amsterdam or Almere. One for camera critters here and wild bird wednesday here.
