You may not know the Festival Nature Namur ?
It has become a reference for nature movies and photography. This year, it is celebrating its 20th anniversary and takes place from October 10 to 19, in the belgian city of Namur.

Festival Nature Namur 2014

And for my very first participation to the International Nature Photography Competition, organized during the Festival, one of my pictures has been selected in the Landscape category and will thus be shown during the Festival. Maybe I could even win a prize ? Who knows. Wait and see until October 17, when the awards are distributed.

If you love nature, if photography (or movies: a large part of the Festival is about nature documentaries) is of interest to you, or if you have children who love animals (the subject of most the exhibited pictures), I strongly advise you to go there and enjoy the beauty of the pictures that will be exhibited there. Mine include of course :-)
And to help make it even better, access to all pictures exhibitions is free of charge.

The Festival takes place from October 10 to 19 in Acinapolis (Jambes, part of Namur) as well as in the city of Namur itself and a few neighbouring villages.
Practical details and full programme are available on the website of the festival (in French):

Do not hesitate, go and visit it, it is really worth it!

Yes! In case you wondered, I’m still alive and I’m back after more than a year without updates of this website.
Circumstances of life made it almost impossible for me to take care of my website during the last year.

I want to apologize for this silence to all readers but especially to the users of my WP Supersized plugin who have sent many questions left unanswered.
If you are one of them, note that I am busy preparing an update of the plugin to solve some issues that appeared since the last update. A little bit more patience and the new update will be ready for download.
Also, if your questions about WP Supersized are still unanswered and you still need help, please send me these questions again (first check the new version when available) as I will most probably not have the time to go over all the questions/comments that I had received during the last year.

Among others things, I am currently working on a brand new and improved version of my website. Still in development but I hope to have it ready during the summer.

In the meantime, I invite you to visit my next exhibition, entitled “When nature plays architect“, during the Randonnée d’Artistes de Rixensart !

I often get asked how to use WP Supersized to build a full screen gallery of images within a WordPress theme.
Here is a simple way to do it.
If you have other ideas on how to do this, share it with other users by using the comments.

First of all, check out the demo.

OK! How is this done ?

Happy new year to all!
Here is the image I had chosen for my paper New year cards. I have taken it during my trip to British Columbia in September 2011. There was already snow during my stay there. I called this image “Symetries” for obvious reasons (I think) but it also had another appeal to me: move your mouse over the image to see what I had seen in it ;-)

This last Sunday, the morning looked grey and rather cool: perfect weather for a bit of mountain biking. I thought: “no need for a camera, the light is not good”. And so I went away, with nothing but my bike for a ride in the neighbourhood. After only a few km, I spotted a mailbox drowned in a group of flowers against the wall of an old farm in Rixensart. I hesitated a bit: continue with my bike ride or go back to get my camera. The light looked like it would soon change with clouds becoming thinner, so I rushed back home, hoping that the wind would not increase and that the cloud cover would not break too fast, to keep the even light that was perfect for the image that I had in mind. Back home, I picked up my equipment, jumped in my car (to get there quicker ;-)) and went back again to the old farm. Here is the result!
