I took this shot early morning in Beaufort, Luxembourg. This area backs onto the vacation park we were staying at, so as you can see it was a pleasure to walk the dog.


Comments welcome.

The Abbey of Echternach is a Benedictine monastery in the town of Echternach, in eastern Luxembourg. The Abbey was founded by St Willibrord, the patron saint of Luxembourg, in the 7th century. For three hundred years, it benefited from the patronage of a succession of rulers, and was the most powerful institution in Luxembourg.


The abbey is now a popular tourist attraction, and owes much of its modern fame to an annual dancing procession that is held every Whit Tuesday. Tens of thousands of tourists, day-trippers, pilgrims, and clergy visit Echternach to witness or participate in the traditional ceremony.

Vianden Castle (French: Château de Vianden, German: Burg Vianden, Luxembourgish: Buerg Veianen), located in Vianden in the north of Luxembourg, is one of the largest fortified castles west of the Rhine. With origins dating from the 10th century, the castle was built in the Romanesque style from the 11th to 14th centuries. Gothic transformations and trimmings were added at the end of this period. A Renaissance mansion was added in the 17th century but thereafter the castle was allowed to fall into ruins. It has, however, recently been fully restored and is open to visitors.

Luxembourg 2017

Sunset taken on the way back to Luxembourg City from Vianden.

I had a very pleasant and energising walk yesterday evening around the area known as Houffels, near Boulaide in the Luxembourg Ardennes region. The sunset was pretty impressive although at the very end a layer of clouds covered the sun. I was with my friend and fellow photographer Tom Schmitz who knows the area very well since he grew up in this part of Luxembourg.


Ayer hice una caminata magnífica en la zona de Houffels, cerca de Boulaide, en la región de las Ardenas Luxemburguesas. La puesta de sol fue preciosa, aunque al final una banda de nubes cubrió el sol. Estuve con mi amigo y compañero fotógrafo Tom Schmitz que conoce la zona muy bien ya que creció en ella.

A company wanted to use one of my photos for their website and asked what I would like for it. I opted for a meal with my wife in Luxembourg (there arose the photo).

And so we sat one day on the 8th floor of a luxury hotel in Luxembourg in the associated restaurant ("Top Floor").

The lunch was amazing, the wine was very good, but so is the view, we got a wonderful table.

After lunch we walked in the city of Luxembourg.

Luxembourg City 2014...

In remembrance on Memorial Day 2014 of those that paid the ultimate price while on active duty for their country.


The Luxembourg American Cemetery and Memorial is located in Hamm, Luxembourg City, Luxembourg. The cemetery can be found 2.5 kilometers southwest of Findel Airport. It is administered by the American Battle Monuments Commission. Under a US-Luxembourg treaty signed in 1951 the US government was granted free use in perpetuity of the land covered by the cemetery, without taxation.


The cemetery, which is 50.5 acres (20.4 ha) in extent contains the remains of 5,076 American service members. On 22 occasions two brothers rest side-by-side in adjacent graves. Most of the interred died during the Battle of the Bulge which was fought nearby in winter 1944/1945. The 5,076 headstones are set in 9 plots of fine grass, lettered A to I. Separating the plots are two malls radiating from the memorial and two transverse paths. Two flagpoles overlook the graves area. Situated between the two flagpoles lies the grave of General George S. Patton Jr.


May they all rest in peace.
