Bruges canals originally protected the city centre.
After the rain.

Girl! These pictures are beautiful! I wish I had a knack for taking pics...sadly no. I took pictures of my son at his cross country meet....well, all I got was a picture of the trees he had just passed!

What fab pictures—I especially love the swans!

jennyfreckles said...

I love those fluffy clouds. And how come you managed such a perfect shot of swans? I've never yet achieved a decent photo of a swan. They always hide their heads or get blown-out highlights or something.

These looks like pictures taken from a fairy tale.

You are right. Words are just not necessary.

Amazing pictures. The sky is so blue, it almost looks fake. And there is something so calming and serene about swans to me. Wonderful pictures. You are talented-that's for sure.

love the pics - I think the Minnewatter in Bruges is one of the best places you can spend a sunny afternoon.

Nice pictures!

Nevine said...

Bruges is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Dare I say even more beautiful than Venice? Yes. I do. Bruges is open... and cool (temperature cool)... and it is not as studded with tourists. But maybe it is just me. Maybe it is just that Belgium will always have a special place in my heart... because... once upon a time... Belgium was home.

I loved your pix, Betty. They brought back such beautiful memories... and the sting of happy tears.

Big hugs,
Nevine
