We see the same surroundings day in and day out that we take them for granted. The route to the office may be more gorgeous than you notice. These are the shots taken while walking around the route, which I usually pass by without appreciating its beauty.

An enchanting evening

Enchanting Evening

O it is pleasant, with a heart at ease,
Just after sunset, or by moonlight skies,
To make the shifting clouds be what you please.
~Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Mesmerizing nature, calm evening air, and camera in my hands cheers me like nothing else can.

Around the windmill

WindmillThe windmill of Sloten is located in the outskirts of Amsterdam. This mill is open to the public and you can see the exhibition ‘Amsterdam and the water’ which illustrates Amsterdam’s relationship with the sea. In the Coopery museum, you can see how barrels are manufactured.

Near the windmill is restaurant Syriana which offers a Syrian Lebanese kitchen, and a wonderful ambiance. The Lounge is decorated in the style of ‘Thousand and one Nights’ and there are performances by a belly dancer. The best part for me was that there are many vegetarian options.

A traditional dutch windmill, a museum, restaurant with good food and entertainment, and the mesmerizing nature around, this place is definitely amazing.
