I’ve just returned from a very wet weekend in Utrecht, a town not far from Amsterdam.  We tried a number of times to get out with the camera but most of the time it was just too wet.  I don’t have a rain proof cover for my camera, so just had to wait for a break in the rain to shoot off a few brackets.  I liked this one because the different brackets seemed to catch the different coloured lights from the street lamps.

Utrecht is a very pretty town where small brick lined canals thread their way around the town. The streets are at a higher level and so goods used to be loaded and unloaded directly into the cellars of the local businesses.  Now, many of these have been converted into restaurants and bars with beautiful vaulted brick ceilings.
