A short trip just to be outside the house for an hour. Obviously keeping social distance. I saw a robin and a magpie and enjoyed the frail beauty of wildflowers
February 15, 2020.
During a walk with D. a Tinder date.
We enjoyed a great evening the previous day, February 14.
Eventually it didn’t work out but the image will stay forever.
Terrace looking out over the one of the lakes.
Control tower of the hydroelectric power plant at the l’Eau de l’Heure lakes.
I shot this worn-out control-cabin in the late afternoon while the light was falling on its windows and the treetops on the background.
After some basic post-processing in Lightroom I did the final black and white conversion in Photoshop. I used one black & white layer where I masked out the cabin and a second one for the cabin only.
Past weekend Sweetheart and I spend a weekend near Eau d’Heure Lakes. It is a complex of 5 artificial lakes with a total surface of 6 square kilometers.
There are also 5 dams and one hydroelectric power station.
As always we had a great time, Sweetheart and me. We enjoyed the hiking and the B&B I had booked was very comfortable and the meal served delicious.
The cold and the little rain did not bother us at all. We were together and that is finally all that counts.
I took 20-something color snaps with the Yashica Electro 35 and the first roll I shot after it was repaired.
I had my Nikon D300 with me as my main camera and the all-round 24-120mm lens.
After all I did not take that much pictures though. Spending quality time with Sweetheart is way more important.
Trees, trees and trees standing erect like proud soldiers.
Deep in the woods near Chimay I found this little pond glowing in summer sunlight.
