The two last weeks where almost hell for me.
Trying to get all the paperwork done for our summerholiday. Going back to my wifes homecountry Thailand, I did not go for three years now. And my wife for two years, all thanks to our friendly worldwide virus Corona. Thailand has got some very strict rules for entering the country and it is not easy to get all the papers and still see if they will accept them.
On the other hand work is getting out of control, the world is picking up now that things are looking a bit better in a long time. So a lot of overtime and a lot of pressure going around.
I felt it was getting to me and took a step back, so photographing and following up the new blog was put to the background. But this weekend I decided to go out, take some photos and enjoy the day. Walking shoes in the car together with a picnic and of we went.
In the village of Nadrin in the Belgian Ardennes there is a nice barrage at the place called Nisramont. There you can have a very nice mini hike from about 14 Km. Almost all the way around the water and not many do the complete walk.You can enjoy nature by yourself.
This shed I have seen many times and had a photo in mind for it. Just had to find to correct pov, I did not want to get some of the warnings plates in the picture.
This shed in fact is a starting and stopping point for kayaks, you can rent them there. Very popular in the summer.
Peter #1 is absolutely stunning!!! I also like the point of view on #2 but not the shade of mono so much. I like the cripsness of the white in #1. Either way gorgeous captures and I am so glad you were able to step back and enjoy the world a little.
Thanks, #1 ,is the best one, gonna rework #2.
Have to force me to relax, else it is a spiral down. Thanks for the support
Peter I pray your paperwork will be in order and accepted so you can visit your wife homeland. Nice captures of your walk Thats an interesting building however I would not have thought it was a boating house. maybe just a secret house boat to someone who dislikes people haha Thanks for sharing whats been happening and the nice captures
Thanks Tom, it took me a while to figure out the purpose of the shed.
I love your b&w work – it’s the best. But even better is the news that you’ll get to make (I do hope) your trip with your wife back to Thailand. You both richly deserve that “homecoming”. May your travels be safe and smooth, and may you both relax into the warm embrace of family after such a long exile. Best wishes.
Thanks for the kind words. We need to go home, it has been to long. The messed up thing is, everything has to be done over the internet. Before you could go to the embassy, they checked everything and a week later everything was ready. Now if something is wrong they just refuse and no refund. You czn start over again. I gonna beat these burocrates.
Best of luck, my friend – I hope your patience holds out.
Great series, Peter!
Thank you Nancy
So peaceful and beautiful! I hoped it soothed your soul…
It was really calming, and the camera helped to
I feel your pressures Peter, time for ourselves is paramount and out in nature is wonderful. We are in the final throes of a house move, stressful times. My cameras are packed 😳 but cannot wait to get out for a nature walk again soon. Good luck with your trip
I found out the hard way that personal time is precious. Have to try to enjoy life more.
