A new series of images has been added to the gallery list featuring the canals of Amsterdam in Holland (the Nehterlands). Click the image above or one of the links to view the new gallery.
Amsterdam, capital of the Netherlands, has more than one hundred kilometres of canals, about 90 islands and 1,500 bridges.
The three main canals, Herengracht, Prinsengracht, and Keizersgracht, dug in the 17th century during the Dutch Golden Age, form concentric belts around the city, known as the Grachtengordel. Alongside the main canals are 1550 monumental buildings.
The 17th-century canal ring area, including the Prinsengracht, Keizersgracht, Herengracht and Jordaan, were placed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2010.

The Canon EOS-1D X is built around a new full-frame CMOS sensor with 18M pixels, capable of shooting up to 14 frames per second (12 with AF).
