16x Westeinderplassen through an Instagrammer’s lens

If the Westeinderplassen is just a stone’s throw away from your backdoor or if you pass it regularly, you appreciate that the sky can be a kaleidoscope of colours, continually changing throughout the day. Should you take a photo at the same time, at the same spot, for five days on the trot, you’ll go home with five completely different images. The skies above this beautiful Dutch lake are breathtakingly and ridiculously beautiful and are popular with many Instagram photographers for good reason. Many gorgeous pics have been shared with #VisitAalsmeer on Instagram and now we would like to share some of our favourites with you.

The photogenic Westeinderplassen jetty

The famous jetty in Aalsmeer is one of those places where you can take a photo every day, but with totally different results! One of the most popular Instagram spots in Aalsmeer, you could say. Tip: take your shot of the jetty from the Westeinder Pavilion corner perspective.

Poles on water It has been a while since I took this photo and I doubted whether I would place it or not. That is mainly because the image did not match the image I had in mind (with more clouds in the sky). Since my wife really likes the atmosphere in the photo, I will place it anyway.

Boats on the Westeinderplassen during sunset

Admiring the Westeinderplassen whilst sitting on the deck of a boat is without doubt a highlight when visiting Aalsmeer. Photographers love it too, as the boats provide beautiful silhouettes and ideal shots at sundown.

Water reflection masterpieces on Instagram

Aalsmeer’s waterfront often acts like a mirror, so the landscape and the sun reflect in the water. A photographer’s dream, an opportunity to produce works of art that you would want to hang on the wall at home. Don’t you agree?
