It was a busy afternoon when I got to Leeuwarden for a short visit over a Saturday and they had a weekend market which you can get various food from. I already had in mind that the former weigh house of Leeuwarden will be my main subject for my picture. The problem I faced was hordes of visitors and shoppers were crowding around the area to grab bargains offered there.
Situated in the northern part of The Netherlands, I was feeling chill during a typical February weekend. I strolled around Leeuwarden for some sight seeing that the capital of Friesland has to offer. I stopped by a restaurant and had my dinner, that is where I realized the area around the main attraction for me was clean and empty! Right after my meal, I headed straight for the spot and deployed my tripod for a long exposure with my 16-35mm f2.8L II on 5D II. Minor adjustments were done with photoshop and this has to be my favorite shot from Leeuwarden.
