Flanders in four days!

And now, the non-fishing related story…

I was in Flanders lately and we hit Calais, Lille, Mons, Anterwerpen, Bruxelles and back to Calais again in just four days. It was a truly amazing experience and what a tightly planned trip. Although I didn’t get the chance to see much of the city Lille in Northern France, I managed to take nice shots of some of the city’s most prominent landmarks such as La chamber de commerce, Beffroi de Lille, Port de Paris.

This blog post is mainly about the photography. Regarding the pictures quality, it’s nothing to shout about. I just wanted to share some of the best shots taken onboard a typically fast moving vehicle on a digital slim compact camera. For the first time, I was quite amazed with the capabilities of such a simple camera. Most of the shots turned out to be fairly good a slim compact. I guess, the excellent lighting due to the weather was the main contributing factor. Nevertheless, I was quite pleased with the pictures. Enjoy the pictures.

Thanks for reading. Hopefully, the next blog post should be about fishing once again.
