This weekend we decided to go for a photowalk in Zuiderwoude. Choosing a different route than the highway we could explore the Waterland area outside of Amsterdam.
Zuiderwoude is a tiny village just 25 minutes from Amsterdam with only 260 inhabitants. The village is almost entirely made of old characteristic dutch houses and is a peaceful place.
When we were there the weather changed constantly, lets just say there was a lot of wind and rain, but we managed to get some photos in between the rain showers.
If you prefer to stay a bit outside of Amsterdam and experience both the big city and the dutch Waterland scenery you can even stay at this adorable bed and breakfast with the most picturesque view.
On a clear day you can actually see the outlines of Amsterdam from the outskirts of Zuiderwoude, but we got something much better. The light shining through the immense clouds created a dramatic effect on the waterland landscape.
