Bruges Reflections


I was lucky to get this shot because we were literally running to catch the train back to Brussels. It was at the end of a cloudy day in Bruges Belgium and the sun decided to pop out just before it set. I guess it's because of the lighting but this reminds me of a painting.

This is my Weekend Reflections entry.

  5. The landscape itself, the autumn colors,the subtil light, the wonderful reflection, all together they give the feeling of a painting from the past.

  23. A fine painting! Did I tell you, James, that my grandmother and mother lived in Bruges for many years? During the war up to past my date of birth (in Brussels).

  24. So very beautiful. It's ironic that you took the photo running because it has such a feeling of peace.
