A Dutch windmill, Amsterdam – The Netherlands. Crystal ball

Some things just look better Large and on BLACK…… Enjoy!!!


I just got home from a whole day of shot and as you can see, I brought my Crystal ball with me. To be honest, I never leaf home without it. I took this shot just a few hours ago while I was cycling from Amsterdam to Ouderkerk aan de Amstel (translated this means) old church at the Amstel (Amstel is a river). The weather was perfect and the wind wasn’t blowing too hard. This isn’t the only Crystal ball shot I made today. I’ve tried to capture some Dutch scenes in my Crystal ball both classic and modern scenes and I’m trying to expend trough out The Netherlands, taking my Crystal ball to different cities locations. So if anyone as any suggestions please tell my and how knows, I might just capture it in my Crystal ball.

    Is it silver object at the bottom right of the ball your camera? I initially thought you shot this with a fisheye lens and then blended two images together in Photoshop. Great shot!
