I AMSTERDAM SIGN / RIJKSMUSEUM

This spot is very well known but is a must if your in Amsterdam.  Its always crowded even when I went first thing in the morning at sunrise there were people around.  Also when I went the had converted the pool of water into a ice rink which made for a different type of image.

 SKYLOUNGE

This is the only high up shot I got of the Amsterdam skyline but its a good one as you get to see alot of the city from a different kind of viewpoint. Its from the Hilton Skylounge bar in the Hitlon Hotel.
