Alkmaar, old scale

alkmaarwaag

The canals of Alkmaar provide nice views of the old town, including the architectural gem of the old Scale (Waag) with its nice market place for selling the famous cheese.

Furness Abbey

furness2 [1600x1200]Furness Abbey was founded as early as in 1124 but was left to ruins after 1537. Although not much is left of this once impressive abbey I liked the scenery with the old canal looking towards the forest and the old abbey.

I’ve got a good contrast music here, how about some ambient progressive rock?
