Here is another shot from Sunday in Treignes. I decided to show this as an oil painting as the scene seems to remind me of something from my childhood, some painting that I must have seen. It seems to stir emotions within when I look at it, so I hope it does the same for you.
This was taken over the biggest dam in Belgium called “La Plate Taille”. OK it’s not that high but we live in a small country so I guess it’s size is relative. Again, I’m trying out Gimp, reducing the size of my images and adding a watermark. The images are first edited in Lightroom.
Je viens de rentrer du vernissage de l’exposition photographique de Guy Focant (ami et photographe pour le SPW) “cent merveilles de Wallonie”. Si vous voulez y aller, c’est gratuit et ça vaut le détour, voici la pub:
I was out this morning in the woods with our dog, Hawk the Malamute. It’s not easy taking photos and walking a dog but I have found ways round the problems like walking with my camera already attached to the tripod and training the dog to stand still…… honestly that bit is not so easy with a Malamute! The woods around here are just fantastic at the moment as the sun is low in the sky and streaks through the trees. It’s really magical in the early morning light but I do keep my eye open for wild boar, the deer are not a problem but the wild boar that are quite numerous here can get nasty..
The old railway line 156, Hastière – Chimay – Anor as it passes through the Bois de Blaimont.
In 1993 three young people met on a barge moored in the Bonaparte dock in Antwerp. 20 years later they decided to meet again… Strangely an old barge not unlike the one they met on was moored there and it was called, Antwerp 93…
Here’s a shot I took on long exposure inside the church at the Monastery St Remy.. Taken around 8:30 in the evening.
The Christ is the verb… that is why I called this “Le Verbe”. I have really done so little to this shot, it just seemed to come out how I wanted. I took it next to the lake in the garden at the Monastery of St Remy, Rochefort.
I went on retreat this week-end to the monastery in Rochefort here in Belgium. I took this one evening after complies when the church was empty and dark. I didn’t get any shots of the monks, maybe next time, they are very elusive people when it comes to photos..
OK so I have to say that I love these little flowers….
This was taken yesterday evening around 9 o’clock on my way back home from Namur just as the sun drops low in the sky…
Riding my motorbike back this evening I came across this field full of poppies…
Love this time of year when I see the poppies come our around here.
Took this a while back in Cerfontaine when we had what seemed to be the start of Spring but… false alert..
La chapelle de Sainte Brigide à Fosses-la-Ville, Belgium.
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?
