Postcard from Bruges, Belgium

    Newer Older

    By far...by far the place I loved the most on my trip over to the Netherlands, was the drive we took to see Bruges (or Brugge), Belgium. I had heard about it from the movie "In Bruges", a fantastic, funny, dark comedy that came out a few years ago...and then had some friends tell me I needed to see it if I went there.

    The town is old and has medieval architecture. The canals twist around, little bridges go here and there and old trees, paths and stone can be seen everywhere.

    This particular shot was taken around 9pm as we were getting ready to leave. The sunsets in this area of the world tend to drag out a long time, so it was nice to have time to see the city in a lovely dusk color.

    I was struck by the reflection of the buildings in the water, the details on the left canal wall, the color of the roofs on the right and the simpleness of the few clouds in the sky. I wasn't carrying my tripod, so this was propped on the railing of another stone bridge to get. Three bracket HDR.

    Definitely one of my favorite shots of the trip...because it will always remind me of Bruges. A quiet, peaceful, ancient and awe-inspiring town.
