Piatra's lake, minus the snow :-)

On our last day in Piatra, we went for a delicious bbq :-). Along the lake this time. The same lake as the one in this shot. Different position and less snow :-)

Back in Romania

It's Orthodox Easter and that means we're in Romania. We went to visit Lacu Rosu today.
A very picturesque little lake. Witness it's awesome beauty! :-)

Wonderland daddy!

As we were walking here a young girl was shouting to her father: "We're not in Holland daddy, we're in wonderland!!"

Pink overload

The hyacinths...

Damn! more flowers

Iuliana and I went to the floralien of Groot-Bijgaarden yesterday. Thousands of tulips, daffodils and hyacinths blooming away. If you're in the area of the Castle of Groot-Bijgaarden, do pass by there. It really is worth the visit! Students taking online college classes in biology will like to see all the different varieties of flowers currently in bloom. This is one of the 200-ish pictures I took there and I'm sure there will be several more to follow :-)

Hope you like it as well and the iPhone version is here.


For my Easter contribution; a macro of a beautiful tulip :-)

The not so pretty Brussels...

These pictures show that there is another, uglier side to Brussels. I went into town yesterday to take pictures as the weather was beautiful, but I wasn't very inspired. I only took 25 pictures and these are two of them. Due to the nature of the images I haven't made an iPhone version.

Flora urbana...

This is one from the same day as the ones in the botanique.
I usually don't do square crops, but for this one I've made an exception as it fit the subject and composition quite nicely.
The iPhone version is here. It has been stretched so as to fit the screen, but I don't think it's giving any bad effect on the image.

Botanique in spring

Since it was such gorgeous weather yesterday, I headed out to the Botanique to capture some springy shots. These are a couple of the results.
The first one is a composition of eight shots the second, a mere ten :-)

This morning I've been experimenting a bit with our palm tree.
I liked this one the best. I know It's a bit abstract and all that, but I was quite happy with the composition and the way the light seems to radiate between the leaves.
The iPhone version as usual can be found here.

All by itself...

And this was how I found the daffodil in the previous shot, standing all on it's own (well nearly anyway).

Easter part II

Since we were on the topic of easter in the previous pic, I thought I'd continue :-)
I took this one today and was very happy with it :-)
