One chilly winter evening in Amsterdam, I captured the splendid Royal Palace, originally built as the town hall in 1655. This panoramic image, stitched from three separate photos during the enchanting 'blue hour,' unveils the palace's grandeur. Its illuminated façade stands as a testament to the city's rich history, its warm glow harmonizing with the surrounding cobblestone streets. Amsterdam's charm knows no bounds, especially when nightfall paints the town in hues of twilight blue. Photo © copyright by Rich Voninski.
