Images of the Netherlands

This section contains photos of a recent photo tour of The Netherlands. It is anything but "High Country", but I wanted to share some of the best photo opportunities I've had in a long time. There are two sections.

The first, Keukenhof, is a world-famous park that is only open during the spring tulip season. It is a wonderland of flowers, combined with big old trees, ponds, and fountains. This is Holland at it's colorful best, and is a must destination for anyone visiting the country in the spring.

The second, Zaanse Schans, with its many industrial windmills is believed to be the oldest industrial area in Europe, dating back to the 16th century. The windmills are located on a picturesque waterway which was the main transportation route at the time.
