Here is a head shot I took of one of our Pioneer Scouts on Saturday.
This little guy came to see me today in Sutton Park. He was looking for food I think and I was so sorry I didn’t have anything for him..
The Easter Sunday sunrise taken at the services between Lille and Dunkerque in the Nord-Pas de Calais on our way to England. Taken with my new 50mm lens at 6:50… 1/8 at f16.
There is nothing like using your own family to test out your ideas now, is there?
I took this shot on Wednesday morning, looking across “La Plate Taille”. The day before it had snowed all day and this morning was just so magnificent with the bright sunlight streaming down all around and the deep snow drifts. What a day for a walk..!
This was taken today outside our house. The snow is still falling and has been since last night…. We did think that winter was gone but no, she is back with vengeance… Can’t wait till it stops snowing and the sun comes out for all those lovely shots just waiting for me..
We went to visit some of the old parts of the city of Brussels today, hidden from sight under modern roads and buildings… Here is a link to a presentation about the site: http://www.coudenberg.com/fr/preparez-votre-visite/presentation
A friend of mine (who is a professional photographer for the SPW) lent me his camera for one hour the other afternoon. Unfortunately, it rained, snowed and was freezing cold so I didn’t really manage to get any good photos in one hour. I had to master his camera too, a Nikon D800 with a 24-120mm lens. It was an experience for me walking around Namur with nearly 4000€ worth of equipment. It was a shame the weather was not better… this morning it was excellent for photos! Well here is one of the images I took that afternoon. The original was shot in RAW and I worked on it in iPhoto as my version of Lightroom would not load this RAW file in. It copes well with the RAW files from my D3100 but I guess the D800 is a little superior and the file is 40megs..
Not being totally happy with the last post I decided to look at the image again… Well, this is what I came up with..
Looking down into the valley as the early evening mist starts to descend and the light fades.. The time between times..
I decided to take another look at this shot..
I keep looking at these shots I took of Walcourt and trying different ideas, looking for a certain atmosphere … not sure I have really got it and I may have to go back soon and take more shots
Here is our village with the morning mist nestling between the houses..
My first attempt at taking a night shot over the Lac de l’Eau d’Heure with stars (the great bear) … Have to see how to get it so that the stars are not blurred by the rotation of the earth.. I’m sure it’s in the settings somewhere
I have been looking at this for a few days now trying to decide what I like about it and if I should post it…. so here goes
