Gent, Belgium

If a scene like this doesn't call out for sepia I don't know what does. And what the heck, since it's got so many windows, too...


(See, I told you I had a doozy for today.)

What a stunning capture of architectural beauty and serenity.

Stunning, the sepia makes it look like an old woodblock print! Old Europe is a great place for windows with the grand churches and narrow streets.

Belgium has the most gorgeous architecture! My mother was there and brought back photos taken in the dark while it was raining and they looked lovely because Belgium is so lovely. Great photo.

Wow, Robin that doesn't even look real!

And, I think I have been there---a looong time ago, I went to either Gent or Brugge and remember it was as gorgeous as that photo.

this has such a nice crisp look to it.

Lovely roofs, and river.
I'd say it's beautiful with snow too.
Guess what- I think I was there about 3 years ago with my friend who loves in Brussels! That clock tower looks very familiar, think we climbed up it! I'll have to double check with her, and let you know. Can definitely tell you I didn't take any photos, didn't even own a camera then! Imagine!

Any stone facade is perfect in sepia. The cold siding seems a bit warmer ins sepia, and anything old seems to stand out in this lovely monochrome!

Dave said...

very scenic and full of beautiful architecture.

Oh, it's breathtaking! It belongs in a fairy tale (and most probably is!). Nice shot, Robin.
