Flanders is flat, very flat. But is some parts you can find some hills. One of these hilly regions is called the ‘Flemish Ardennes’, referring to the much higher Ardennes in the south-east of the country and in northern France.

I live in the ‘Flemish Ardennes’, but being a landscape photographer, my region has not much to offer. This is why, when photographing close to home, I mainly concentrate on small parts of the landscapes.

And often, the early morning mist helps to close the landscape.

  1. This is the work of the true artist–whether it be painter, photographer–finding the extraordinary amid the ordinary. This photo is very evocative, but its strength lies in the fact that it does not obviously evoke any one thing. That part is left up to the viewer.

  2. Flanders, isn’t that where the big bike race is at the moment, tour of Flanders? 🙂
    Misty mornings can bring many opportunities for some lovely photos. I can wait for the cold to set in here. Love the moodiness of the shot.

    • As you mention, this big bike race is called the ‘Ronde van Vlaanderen’ or ‘Tour of Flanders’. During the tour, each of these ‘hills’ are to be climbed one or several times. The difficulty is the fact that these climbs are very steep rather than long.

  3. Oh that’s a really excellent picture, Philip! Those bright dewdrops in the foreground, the fence that blurs off into a distance that has the faintest suggestion of trees – one of the best monochromes I’ve seen for sometime!

    I hope your recuperation continues. Adrian

    • Thanks Adrian.Much appreciated.
      The recuperation continues at a slow pace. I will probably need 6 months before being fully recovered.
      But each day, I feel a little better, a little more energy.
