Photographer's Note

Hometown Glory

I just came home after a cycle tour through my hometown Haarlem in tonight's summer evening mood. Of course together with my camera, so I could try some blue hour photography. Here is one of the results of one of my favourite views of the city, taken at 22.10h, about an hour after sunset.

Haarlem is located in the western part of the Netherlands, in between Amsterdam and the North Sea. It's the capital of the province of Noord-Holland and has about 150,000 inhabitants.
One of the prides of the city is de Grote of Sint Bavokerk (Great or Saint Bavo Church), seen here in the background. As well as het Teylers Museum (the building to the right of the church), which is the oldest public museum in the Netherlands (1784). On the left hand side, you can also see de Waag (Weigh House). The river in the foreground is called het Spaarne.

Hope you like this photo and thanks for your visit. For the title of this photo, I was inspired by the song Hometown Glory of English singer Adele from her debut album 19.
