Summer

29 posts

Summer is the hottest of the four temperate seasons, falling between spring and autumn. At the summer solstice, the days are longest and the nights are shortest, with day-length decreasing as the season progresses after the solstice. The date of the beginning of summer varies according to climate, tradition and culture, but when it is summer in the Northern Hemisphere, it is winter in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa.

From Rotterdam with Rain

Sometimes one thinks; why don’t we spend the weekend in Rotterdam? It really isn’t such a bad city. But why does it always rain there?

Gay Pride 2016

The canal parade was the smashing final of the Amsterdam Euro Pride 2016. Just as much fun watching the spectators 🙂

Milkshake

Milkshake was two days this year, with a lovely and quieter Sunday afternoon 🙂

Euro Pride Amsterdam

This year Amsterdam hosts the Euro Pride. Equal rights for all, based on sex, religion, colour is far from being a fact in most countries. There are more countries where being gay is a crime, than where they can marry.

Vondelpark Roses

In the middle of the Vondelpark (Amsterdam) is this rose garden. Not a very pretty garden, but the roses are amazing this year!

Crossing the IJ

On my way home, decided to take the ferry crossing the IJ to Amsterdam North.

Rusty Sunset

A little gift during the EK Football final; a wild sunset! Shot in Amsterdam centre at Roest Beach.

Balcony Flowers

A bit later this year than usual. I love a little flower oasis on the balcony.
