Some pictures that I made during my short (wet) break in Belgium.


Hi, everybody,

here are some pictures that I like to share with you all, they were made last week during my short break in the beautiful Ardenne in Belgium. It sadly rained most of the time, but during the last day, the sun broke through the clouds so I could finally make my long-planned hike to see the old Oaks I had seen for the first time some 20 years ago! So when the sun came out I wanted to take quick advantage of this opportunity and make the long walk to finally see them again! They grow on an impossible hard rock mountainside and some of them are just 2 meters high. They are stunning and some grow in really unique forms, like the multiple trunks one in the picture below.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures!
