About Me

My photo
Antwerp, Belgium
Welcome to the new, and improved version of Heaven in Belgium. I am Jientje. "Jientje", like the boys name Gene, followed by "chu"? "Gene-chu", that's how you pronounce my name. Yes!!!!That's it!! So now you know huh? I am an addicted blogger. I was born and raised and am still living in Belgium. Yeah, the "this-is- Tuesday-so-this-must-be-Brussels" kind of Belgium .. There, you see? Maybe you couldn't find it on the map, but at least I'm trying to change that a little by sharing lots of pictures. I really love to cook and create new things, like this blog for instance. I am a mother, not a grandmother,I don't know if I'll ever be, but I'll let you know in due time! Oh and um ... I am a wife too! They say I'm a traveler, and a photographer. Well that's just what they say, I love to make pictures, but I am far from professional ... If my English is not perfect, that would be because it's my second language. I do hope you'll forgive me any possible misspellings or strange vocabulary ... Now, as a result of all of the above, I get way too little sleep and my days are always much too short!

Weekly Winners, Fog and Boats

 

weeklywinnersaugust2010

 

The weather was very foggy all day on Tuesday so I grabbed “the big guy” and took him for a short walk along the canal. I love Mother Nature’s natural depth of field and how my photos turn into almost black and white.

Ghost boats, waiting for the Flying Dutchman to show up.

These pictures are fantastic. I can feel the cold and the wet from the fog.
I love the bird(s) captured in some of them, gives them a haunting bit of life.

I LOVE these. The shot with the person on the levee - down the left side of the picture - what an amazing shot.

There is something peaceful about the Fog, It is like Nature's Cone of Silence. I love the Fog.

Thank you for sharing these wonderful photos.

So beautiful. Love how the green grass and the colored leaves stand out against the grey of the fog.

I love the feeling of this, so eerie but beautiful.

Oh wow! People try to get this effect artificially sometimes, but NOTHING beats the real thing. The fog just added such a wonderful beauty and ambiance to the photos. Well done!

Eve said...

It was nice of Mother Nature to give you those cool effects. I really like this set of photos.

Rob and Mandy said...

Very nice, very surreal, and it must be quite a typical november temperature. Keep warm and dry.

Loved the last photo...the fog accents the brown leaves on the grass, but just gives one glimpses of the birds!

Thanks for your comment on my London Eye.. enjoy your holiday (and special time) with your daughter - hope all the rioting doesn't spoil it all.
I see you haven't posted for a while - hope all is well - or are you like me at the moment and 'lost my groove / mojo' .. or whatever you want to call it !

Wendy said...

I keep checking back to see if you have posted something new. I hope you and your family are well and you are just taking a little break. I most likely speak for all your fans that we miss you and your photos - so hurry and come back to us.
