Sail Amsterdam 2010

Category: Photography

Every five years since 1975, when Amsterdam celebrated 700 years of existence, Sail Amsterdam is returning to the capital of the Netherlands. The biggest maritime event in Europe where an impressive fleet of Tall ships, sail to the city center of Amsterdam. All sorts of activities regarding these ships take place and visitors get the chance to take a closer look at all the ships.

Five years ago when I went to watch it we had a heat wave that day but today it was quite breezy and cool but the sun was out. We were invited by Ronalds sister to come watch the SailIn from the premises of the company she works for. She together with four others colleages had organised the festivities. There was food and drink and we had a super view of the all the boats and Tall ships that came from Ijmuiden.

Today I only took my long lens (70-210mm) with me. Shot just about everything at 210mm (a tip from Cliff Mautner to add more drama to the shots and it works). I have this lens for more than 20 years and used it on my EOS 650. When I see the results I wonder why I do not use it more often. Maybe this is a way to learn, every now and again take only one lens along that I do not use a lot and shoot with it. The results might surpise you.
