Belgium - Brussels

Description

The Grand Place or Grote Markt in the historic center of Brussels, Belgium. Brussels' magnificent central square, Grand Place, tops every newcomer's itinerary. It boasts the country's finest baroque guildhalls, the beautiful Hotel de ville (building on the left), museums, pavement cafes, chocolate shops and intimate cellar restaurants. Hidden at the very core of the old town, it's revealed as you enter from narrow side allays - a discreet positioning that adds charm. The Grand Place takes on different auras depending on the time of day and the season. In the morning the superb guildhalls at the bottom end glint in the sun, at dusk the azure sky makes a vivid backdrop to the illuminated buildings. For three days in August, a carpet of flowers covers the whole square.

Nikon D80, Tokina 12-24mm, B + W UV filter, tripod.
