While Charlie and I were out on Sunday to see the pope (statue), we ended up wandering around a bit more of town. We didn’t really go far, as the light wasn’t all that inspiring at the start. There wasn’t a lot that made me want to get out my camera. However, after a coffee break at one of the cafés along the Oudegracht, things started to look a bit better. Or maybe it was just the hit of caffeine. Charlie convinced me to head over to Neude to see if the oliebollen stall was open. It was. And as I juggled dog and a bag of warm oliebollen, I happened to glance up and see the impressive sky overhead. It had been dull and overcast for much of the morning, but the sun was making an effort to break through. As you can see, the result was a wonderful silhouette of the Domtoren and the Utrecht flag over Neude, with some amazing clouds.
We then walked back through Janskerkhof to smell the Christmas trees for sale and take a few more photos along the Drift. The sunlight was starting to come through and one of the beautiful buildings by the canal was starting to turn ever so slightly golden in the light.
This is the view of the other side of the canal where you can see the sun starting to really glow.
Even Charlie caught the light to show off his lovely brindling.
