A nice cup of cappuccino served in the Leonidas store in Overpelt.


In Search of the Northern Lights

This evening I joined a trip to go out a try to see the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis). A bus took us out of Reykjavik to a place where there was no light pollution and where the coulds left some open spots. During the waiting I took some long exposure shots of the clouds drifting over a mountain, in front of the moon. Eventually we did get the Northern Lights a couple of times (two time very clearly), but then I just used my eyes instead of the camera to observe this unbelievable spectacle. (Although I did manage to snap some less exciting shots of the Northern Lights itself)

Reykjavik, Iceland

Today was the first time I saw a blue sky in Iceland. The I visited the Solfar for the second time to get some better pictures.

Hallgrimskirkja in Reykjavik, Iceland

This week I’m in cold and dark Reykjavik (Iceland). Unfortunately it’s not a holiday but a business trip, so I don’t have a lot of time to take pictures (especially during the day). Tonight I went into town to photograph the Hallgrimskirkja,

Purple Flowers in front of the Window, the title says it all…

Onderweg naar Gyantse

I didn’t shoot anything really interesting the last days, so maybe it’s time to post some shots from my archive. This photo is taken last year in Gyantse, (Tibet/China, altitude 4.000m above sea level). It’s a fortress on a really, really steep mountain.
