Each year over 15000 bikes are dredged up from the Amsterdam Canals. Fifteen thousand! Some of these bikes have gotten a second life through this artwork. It's on display at the Amsterdam Light Festival.
This must be one of the most photographed spots in Amsterdam. It never gets old.

We cheated a little bit with this one since it's not exactly one of the Amsterdam canals... It's a beautiful shot of the Amstel river instead.
