Sunrise at the Baraque Michel

After almost a week of very difficult driving due to the continuous snowfall here in Belgium, I managed to reach the Hautes Fagnes in time for the sunrise. It took me almost two hours to get there and I was almost too late to catch the best light. I barely had the time to jump out of my car, run (well… as best as I could) in the deep snow to a few hundred of meters away from the road to take the pictures of the sunrise. I had no snowshoes and it was impossible to get very far from the road without them so I will need to be better prepared next time !

A short walk in the Hautes Fagnes

I had a quick visit to the Hautes Fagnes, near Spa (and Francorchamps) two weeks ago. Just a few hours of relatively clear weather before the weather turned rainy and sad.

Sunrise along the road from Francorchamps to the Spa airfield. Time to hurry up: these nice little clouds announce the arrival of rainy weather ! One of my favorite spots in the Fagne de Malchamps, between Francorchamps and the Spa airfield. I showed <a  href="">another picture of it</a> during my recent exhibition The river Hoegne, not far from Spa, in probably one of the most beautiful little valley in Belgium


Here is a photographic summary of my short trip to the Italian Dolomites, in Val di Funes and around Corvara in Badia where I was based for a few days.

Sunrise in Perk & Halle wood

This saturday, I woke up early (5:30 AM !) to try and capture in a picture what I see almost every day on my way to work. Even if it is not pure nature, the view is usually worth looking at. The sunrise yesterday was not as beautiful as some of the ones that I have already witnessed when cruising on the highway but it was still a nice one. Even if it seems to be a picture of a quiet spring sunrise in the flat countryside north-east of Brussels, I was only a few meters off the highway and planes leaving Brussels airport every few seconds were adding to this to make it one of the noisiest place I know…

Later in the afternoon, I went back to the Halle wood (see my previous post) where the bluebells were now almost in full bloom (they will probably be at their peak within a week). As you can see, I was in a panoramic “mood” 🙂
I do not know why but this place seems to attract a lot of Japanese tourists !

The sea of bluebells again !
