Montelbaanstoren | Amsterdam, Netherlands

Amsterdam, Montelbaanstoren at sunset – canal view, the Netherlands.

Does the name Montelbaanstoren ring familiar when you think about Amsterdam? What does your imagination tell you?

Montelbaanstoren is a tower in Amsterdam that sits alongside a canal named Oudeschans. This tower is over 500 years old and was built in 1516 as a part of the city walls and was originally a Watchtower; although this function was only given for 90 years. The top of Montelbaanstoren was rebuilt in 1606 and the tower received a clock which was famous for centuries for always being late.

Montelbaanstoren is also famous, with due credit to a particular painter that you might be familiar with – Rembrandt. He used to reside in an area near the tower and was supposedly very keen on painting this structure. Inspired by this story, I decided to give my photos a little more colour – from the setting sun, to the mysterious glaze of a renowned building, my goal was to create a piece that resembled and stood as a painting.

Or it's a place which you always dreamed to be one day?

I wish a high-quality print of my photo will bring you a feeling of being there at any time!
