Shot of the Day #5

I was in the Netherlands in September 2009 for a short time, and managed to fill my CF-Card with a few hundred photographs. This shot was taken opposite the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, I thought it would turn out nicely with the yellow window eves and wooden canal boat with ‘Amsterdam’ written on the stern.

Shot of the Day #4

This was taken on the rocks at Mooloolaba, Queensland.
