Nieuwegracht in Utrecht between Paulusbrug and Pausdambrug.
As the name suggests, the Nieuwegracht is newer than the Oudegracht. The canal was built between 1390 and 1393 together with the Kromme Nieuwegracht, the Drift and the Plompetorengracht by a little built-up area within the city walls, probably to improve the drainage of the area in preparation for the construction of the buildings.

Dark Utrecht. That's the name of my still growing series of photos of Utrecht places after sunset. Most of the Dark Utrecht pictures I take in the evening twilight. In the 'blue quarter' to be more precise. After sunset the sky quickly turns an intense dark blue and at some point a perfect balance is created between sky light on the one hand and street and building lighting on the other hand.
Characteristic for my style is the balance in the often tranquil image, the rich, intense colours and the absence of chaos.
