AWAY TO MOROCCO

I will be on holidays in Morocco to discover the beautiful southern part of this country. I will see the Atlas mountains, the desert, and some historical sites too.

We will travel by bus. After the trip we will stay for 2 days in Marrakech to rest at the swimming pool before we take the plane back to Brussels.

Of course I will report whenever I can and show you photos. It all depends on Internet connections.

I took these pictures yesterday around our house. I just pointed the camera up to the sky and shot the pictures in not even two minutes. This is a typical sky when the weather is hesitating between bad and good. It looks sometimes dark and scary but then there are the blue spots.

Come hell or high water

If someone says they'll do something come hell or high water, they mean that nothing will stop them, no matter what happens.

There was a terrible flood after a thunderstorm near Waterloo. The little lake in Genval went out of its bed and the ducks could walk between the cars. This fisherman hasn't lost his enthusiasm !

You probably never will guess what this is ! It's tree bark with a fungus. It looks ugly in big but not so bad as macro shot.

Don't need to tell what this is except that is was very difficult to take !

Painted

I took these pictures of the Waterloo battle, painted in panorama. It looks very real the painter did a very good job. You almost feel in the middle of the battle because while you are looking around you can hear the screams of the injured, the shooting of guns and canons and the neighs of the horses.
